From Dead to Worse, . Part of Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris. She was shelving books. Barbara dressed in what I thought of as comfortable chic, meaning she picked out knits in bright colors and wore matching shoes. She favored chunky, bold jewelry, too. "Good morning, Sookie," she said, smiling her big smile. Barbara," I said, trying to smile back. She noticed I wasn't my usual self, but she kept her thoughts to herself. Not really, of course, since I have my little disability, but she didn't say anything out loud. I put the books I was returning on the appropriate desk, and I began looking at the shelves of new arrivals.

I still like this series, and this book, but there are definitely some fall backs starting with this book.

First off, some of the things that happen in this book seems almost rushed and thrown together. A lot of big story lines happen all at once in this, and it's a bit too much, and handled a bit sloppy, and it makes this book seem less thought out than the others to date.

***Slight Spoilers***

Also, the whole thing with Quinn. I like Quinn a lot, but that's not why I dislike what happened between him and Sookie. The way Sookie handled things was totally out of character in previous books, as well as books after this one. Which seems a bit unfair to Quinn.

I still like this book, I just don't like the poorer choices in how things were handled and thought out, which makes it flow less smoothly with the series than the other books.

Still enjoyed it overall though, and still love this series as a whole. :-)

I love the Sookie Stackhouse series. At it's best, it's a fun, campy romp through southern America with vampires, demons, fairies, and some romance. At it's worst, and this book is it's worst so far, it provides me with some silly puns to title my review with.

From Dead to Worse is described by the publisher as the "pivotal eighth book" in the series. Having read the novel, I understand why. There isn't so much as a unified plot or mystery in this book as there is a series of short stories, all arranging pawns and changing plotlines for future payoff. That's what's rough about this book: there is no payoff. This makes the entire novel extremely boring as we move on from one character to the next.

The writing style is great, as usual. Charlainne captures Sookie's voice and hometown with the same thrilling vocabulary we've come to expect. This book also has a "prologue" of sorts that acts as a previously-on-True-Blood type of device which was very helpful for me (I read these books at a rate of like once per year with a million other books in between).

I don't really have much else to say about this novel, if you can even call it that. Another reviewer referred to it as a series of vignettes, which is much more accurate. If you are already a fan of the series, this won't turn you off of it one bit. In fact, I am more excited to read the next one because it at least seems like its possible to have an actual mystery.

Luckily, if you're reading the 8th book in a series, you're pretty much committed to it at this point. I don't think this book is "bad" in the sense that it would turn anyone away from a series they have thus far loved, but it's definitely mediocre, especially compared to the other books in the series. If this had been the first book in the series, I probably wouldn't have even finished it, let alone continue reading others.

The problem I had with this book is that it felt like nothing happened, although quite a bit did. Everything felt so sporadic and disjointed that by the end of the book, it felt like what happened at the beginning had to have been part of a different book. There were plenty of interesting things that happened, but they were introduced so sloppily and then ended so abruptly that I just ended up feeling frustrated. The vampire war especially I felt was not given enough time. Some of the characters who died in that war deserved much more than a short mention in conversation. A lot of things that happened seemed like things the characters would never do or agree to, but they happened so that there would be a quick resolution to the situation. I found the last chapter a bit more intriguing than the others, but it was so far removed from the other storylines, like everything else in this book, that it was harder to enjoy. It really should have been the closing chapter of a previous book, since Hadley had nothing to do with anything else here.

This felt like a bunch of short stories all lumped together that had nothing to do with each other except that, naturally, they all had Sookie in them. On top of that, there was no mystery whatsoever. Usually, I'm trying to figure something out while I'm reading, but there was simply nothing to try to figure out here. It almost felt like a first hand narrative of some historical event rather than the present story telling that I've grown accustomed to in these novels. To me, this didn't even feel like a bridge novel to tie up loose ends. It felt like lazy writing, and as a fan, I expect much more than that. Will I continue reading the series? Absolutely. But I pray that the other books are significantly better than this one.
