Someone described this series as "Bridget Jones with fangs" and that is a pretty accurate description. That is a large part of why I love this series. This series is nothing like Anne Rice's Vampire Chonicles. In fact, Sookie and her encounters with vampires turn Rice's sober visions of gothic vampires on their heads. I'll admit, Sookie is a bit of a Mary Sue, but she is funny, imperfect, and a gossip of a narrator. She is honestly a great heroine and I look forward to the next book filled with her story. 68 Has anyone else read these books? If you have, come here and discuss the books. If you haven't, I would strongly recommend that you at least pick one of the books up in your local bookstore and read a few pages--it might be to your liking P.S.
