Format: Paperback
This set is a very good read for any True Blood fan or just a reader looking to escape into the fun world that Charlene Harris has created. The Sookie Stackhouse books are a great spin on the traditional vampire themed genre. The premise for the series is that vampires have outed themselves to the world at large and are trying to integrate within the larger society thanks to the invention of a synthetic blood drink called True Blood. The series focuses on a small town in Louisiana and how one residence there (Sookie Stackhouse) gets drawn into this new world while still dealing with everyday issues. The biggest compliment I can give Charlene Harris is that even though she continues to write many books in this series the stories have not become repetitive and she continues to expand the world in which these stories are set by building upon the social fabric and well introduced new characters. These are a fun read and highly recommended. Two points I would add;
1. If you can commit to reading the series, although each book is a self-contained story I think the story is not as rich without the back stories.
2. Again my biggest compliment is usually in this genre after the first book or two the confines of the world are established and then each book is usually formulaic.. .with main characters.. Introduce new characters, some big event, main characters work through event, new characters die or are sacrificed for plotline. Charlene Harris ignores this and has a rich universe of well developed characters that are central and peripheral to many books within the series.

Time well spent!

I cannot recommend this series more highly. Charlaine Harris is an amazing story teller, the books are compelling, sexy, funny, and utterly unique. I have not seen the HBO series spin off, so I can't compare then to the True Blood phenomena, but I have to say that Sookie Stackhouse is one of my all time favorite characters in literature, second only to Elizabeth Bennett of Austen's "Pride and Prejudice". Sookie is witty, ballsy, and knows herself to be as human as we all are. Her 'disability', her telepathic prowess, is not what makes her so special, it is her charm, her determination, and her utter likability. You will fall in love with Sookie, her world, her friends, and her struggle to live a 'normal' life in an extraordinary setting. I read the series of 7 books in just under 2 weeks, and you will find them impossible to put down. I eagerly await the delivery of the next two books in this series, and can only pray that Charlaine Harris supplies us all with a great deal more Sookie Stackhouse in the future!

I am now hooked on the Sookie Stackhouse series. After watching the show, True Blood, I wanted to see how the books compared to the show. They compare quite nicely and took me into a crazy, vampire-filled world that seems to get better and better with each passing book. I highly recommend this set, so that once you read the first, you can go on to the second and so on and so forth. A great addition to any library! I also liked and would recommend Dead Sexy: Two Tales of Vampire Erotica.

So much fun to read! I started as a fan of True Blood on HBO, found the books, and it kind of went from there. Keeps my attention, totally different than anything else I've ever read and just fun all around.

I love this series! It is the best by far that I have read! I prefer hardcover but I bought this for a friend. It is a great deal to get started in this series! BUT WATCH THE ORDER OF THE BOOKS!! For some reason the manufacturer puts them in the wrong order in the boxed set and I have had more than one mortified friend start reading them out of order! Check the dates and the inside cover to make sure you are reading them in order! The Author's web page is also a good resource! Enjoy! I know I will, over and over and over again!

I really enjoyed this vampire book series! After reading the Twilight saga I was still looking for a "vampire fix." A friend told me about this series and she and I have been very pleased with it's content. This book series is intended for an adult audience in comparison to the Twilight saga. I like that this series isn't just about vampires and werewolves (cause we all know that the two go hand in hand). There are also were animals (different from werewolves, or simply Weres in this series), witches/wiccans, demons, fairies and telepaths. Creates a greater supernatural whelm.

I have just finished Charlaine Harris's latest Sookie Stackhouse book and I hope she is writing another. I have questions I would like answered ; like is Sookie going to choose Sam or Eric? After 9 books I am still invested in the series.

Like everything I have ordered from amazon.ca, this box set arrived in great conditon and promptly. I have always been pleased with the efficient service from amazon. I guess it's just a shame that now the box set doesn't include all the Sookie Stackhouse books. And the latest book Dead and Gone is so new it's only in hardcover which makes the set look less organized on a bookshelf. But it is better to have new material to read!!
