REVIEW Club Dead: Charlaine Harris


Honestly, I did not like this book as much as the previous ones. I didn’t hate it, but it left me feeling pretty meh at the end.

When Sookie’s vampire boyfriend Bill, who was working on a secret computer program, goes missing, Sookie travels to Jackson to locate his whereabouts. But detective work starts taking second place to romance, as Sookie feels strongly attracted to Alcide Herveaux, a werewolf assigned to help her. Also, Eric keeps turning up when least expected, and Sookie has a love-hate relationship with him. But when the bodies start piling up, Sookie must find who’s responsible.

I don’t know if it was the story or my mood, but Club Dead wasn’t as fast a read as the other two. The mystery was in short supply, and felt like more of an afterthought than the main story. Sookie is in a love triangle (or is it square? or maybe pentagon) and her conflicting feelings make up most of the book. I didn’t find much of a plot, and the ending was contrived. This series is meant to be a light read between books, but it bored me after a while. A book I’d much rather forget, but I won’t give up on the series just yet.

    Good u haven't given up on her yet. I think I had my fill of her adventures :)

    Lovely review . Pentagon !may be she will go for a decagon. That would be fun to read :)

    Any ways these books make me laugh. And that sometimes takes off my mind from her social behaviour.

    LOL! Great review. Although I did enjoy Club Dead, but there are definitely some other books in the series that I did find quite boring.

    Regardless, my love for the Viking vampire keeps me coming back. I'd say, dont give up on the series, but don't expect much to change. Book 4 has been my favorite to date!
