Club Dead (Sookie Stackhouse, #3) by Charlaine Harris

Club Dead (Sookie Stackhouse, #3)

Things between cocktail waitress Sookie and her vampire boyfriend Bill seem to be going excellently (apart from the small matter of him being undead) until he leaves town for a while. A long while. Bill's sinister boss Eric has an idea of where to find him, whisking her off to Jackson, Mississippi to mingle with the under-underworld at Club Dead. When she finally catches up with the errant vampire, he is in big trouble and caught in an act of ser...

    (B+) 76% | GoodNotes: Though short on substance it’s a light, fun read with better drawn characters and a brisker pace than previous books.

    With Sookie as her mouthpiece, Charlaine Harris opened up the floor for the discussion of genre fiction in this latest installment of the Sookie Stackhouse series, because it turns out our sweet little friend Sookie proudly claims a self-education through none other than two of the least respected forms of the genre novel: romance novels and trashy mysteries. The snob in me wants to snort in disdain and feel offended for liking Sookie. But the ot...

    The adventures continue & this one breaks from the original romance into very bizarre terrain. Still terrific enough to make me keep reading 'em.Everyone around Sookie is threatened, and she gets beat up in every single book. She endures so much and how much time has elapsed? Actually two seasons... only half a year! That she endures so much and the fact that the plot breaks at times, goes many places except where you think it will go (main chara...

    Sookie has never been the brightest bulb in the pack, but she hits an all-time low in the intelligence department in this book. Her most grievous offence, in my eyes, is that she continues to pine for boring, bland Bill throughout this book. Bill is not only boring, but he's a cheating asshole. Why Bill is an asshole list:1. He is boring2. He has no sense of humor3. He is filthy rich and yet lets his "love" scrape and scratch to live in poverty4....

    Going off challenge here for a little bitey reading with my girl, Kristin.... Saturday, March 7ReviewFirst things first, idiotic MC rant time! Things Sookie sucks at:- Picking men! (more on this later)- Being self-aware!- Not being a judgmental pratt- Wearing anything that’s not entirely tacky. - Appearing anything like intelligent. I didn’t mind this installment of the series, for the most part. I liked the addition of Alcide and while no on...

    Annoying, boring, charmless, dumb. Since I was already on a roll of unpleasant books, I finally forced myself to read my second (her third) novel (the magazine SFX had made me import two with their misleading review).After a typical (cold, boring) interlude showing how irresistable he is (he wears flanel and has hair), vampire Bill disappears at the start of the book and readers are supposed to be stupid enough to fear for his life. Even if Sooki...

    Yes, I'm still reading this series. Great literature? Hell, no. An enjoyable, sort of mindless read, sure. There are parts that I find very funny, such as Sookie using her "word of the day" calendar to improve her vocabulary and the part where the Viking vampire Eric mentions that he took English as a second language in a community college course in the 70's. That sort of stuff is pretty humorous. The parts that annoy me are the writer's fashion ...

    Not as fast or fun a read as the previous two books in the series. Although I'm not sure its really the book's fault. As anyone who reads multiple books at the same time can attest to, you often become more engrossed in one book and forget the other books you're reading. I also tend to read based on my mood and I'm not in a light and fun fantasy mood right now.Club Dead probably isn't any less fun a read then the first two books but my mood has c...

    Club Dead for me is where the Sookie Stackhouse series really starts getting its feet under it. Things are definitely not well between Sookie and her boyfriend vampire Bill, and as Sookie heads to Mississippi to track him down and rescue him from lethal peril, she is torn between the attentions of the werewolf Alcide--and way more attention than she'd like from the vampire Eric, who is growing more and more interested in her with every book. Unfo...

    Treći deo serijala Prava krv, pod nazivom "Klub mrtvih" je daleko zabavniji od prethodna dva.Moram priznati da sam se par puta pošteno iskikotala :)Daleko od toga da ovo delo ima posebnu književnu vrednost, ali je zabavno, pitko i brzo se čita. Meni je poslužilo da napravim presek između malo obimnijih i ozbiljnijih naslova.U Klubu mrtvih smo između ostalog saznali nekoliko bitnih stvari:1. Alsid Herve, vukodlak, još jedan je u nizu baja ...

    ❤ 4.5 Club Dead Stars ❤ Ok soo Bill and I are on the outs! I can’t help it I don’t like him with Sookie especially in this book!! I like Alcide but dude needed to get his head on straight about his ex damn women had him all tied up in knots. I love Bubba! Can you imagine (Elvis as a vampire!) Ha I am just going to say it.. I like Sookie with Erik well for right now I do, :p we will see. Over all I really enjoyed this book I didn’t find ...

    "They say there's no harm in daydreaming, but there is." There's trouble in paradise when Bill Compton is ordered to take on a top secret and super time consuming project given by the vampire Queen of Louisiana, Lorena. Giving him the time and space he needs to work, Sookie Stackhouse doesn't realize her boyfriend is missing until Eric Northmen and his two most trusted co-workers, Pam and Chow, pay her a visit. They also clue her in on some other...

    Opening Line: Bill was hunched over the computer when I let myself in his house.CLUB DEAD is the third instalment from the Sookie Stackhouse series and I really enjoyed this one, having finally come to terms with the fact that this is urban fantasy and not paranormal romance. I was able to focus on the action, horror, humour and mystery aspects here and just let the romance take a back seat. Sookie is also starting to feel like a delightful, adve...

    Terrible. Worst line:"Somehow, it had never crossed my mind—I guess since I'm an American—that the vampires who had snatched Bill might be resorting to evil means to get him to talk."Is Sookie that naive? Is Harris that naive? If only there was some irony intended here. But no, it would seem that the moral centre of these books is the concept of goodness as represented by America, Land of the Free and Home of the Brave, a wondrous country so ...

    The Sookie Stackhouse books are definitely not great literature by any means, but they're a bit like candy--hard to stop reading and very enjoyable. This third book was more of the same, and while there were times I wanted to slap Sookie (even though she gets beat up a number of times in here...again. What's with Charlaine Harris's obsession with beating the snot out of Sookie all the time, anyway?), I really enjoyed reading this.The main thing I...

    Once again, Harris has continued to improve from one book to the next, thought it still has its flaws. The story starts a little slow, and gets monotonous at times, but it picks up toward the end, making the overall book pretty enjoyable. These books truly are like candy for the brain.I was very pleased to find that Bill was missing in action for most of this installment, but despite the reprieve, he still managed to inspire a whole new level of ...

    The third installment of Sookie, and I feel that she represents many of the best qualities of a Southern woman. Her appearance is important to her, but beneath that obvious outer layer, there is a strong, tough woman lurking, one who can handle a shotgun or a baseball bat. She’s no shrinking violet, more like a steel magnolia. Sookie is generally content with her lot in life, which is small town life, and this may annoy more ambitious readers. ...

    Notes: This is, for now, my favourite book in the series and it's not a coincidence that Bill goes missing for the most of it. I'm quite torn about this series since, while I like the stories a lot and I'm curious about what'll happen next, I can't stand very much 2 of the major characters: Sookie & Bill. I find both of them quite annoying & their relationship just doesn't trasmit me anything...however for 2 I don't like there are some I love! Fi...

    The air was cold and wet, and if you stood still for a moment the chilling damp would creep into your bones. I could tell the temperature was taking a dive, and the bright sky of the morning was a fond memory. It was an appropriate day to dump a body.Sookie Stackhouse, waitress, telepath, is new to the wider supernatural world, especially given her relationship with vampire Bill Compton. However, Bill becomes MIA, and Sookie is informed that he h...

    Finally, I'm able to give a Charlaine Harris novel a 4 star. Club Dead is the best in the series and you can tell that Harris is beginning to work through some of the weaknesses that I've noted in the first two books. One thing that Harris has done right is to realize that, once the star-crossed lovers finally get together, the audience's interest begins to wane. As an audience, we want the "will they, won't they" tension. In Dead Until Dark, we ...

    Club Dead is the third book in the Sookie Stackhouse series by popular American author, Charlaine Harris. Lately, her boyfriend Bill seems to be completely engrossed in the computer project he has taken on for the (vampire) Queen of Louisiana, leaving Sookie bored and frustrated. And then, suddenly, he is heading for Seattle and leaving her instructions in case he does not return. Weeks later, no Bill and suddenly, Eric, the boss of Area 5’s va...

    Save for the cheesy dramas made of Danielle Steele's crappy books,I have never preferred books transferred to the screen. (In the case of Steele's books, at least on screen the characters become 3 dimensional). But in the case of the Sookie Stackhouse books, I am going to make another exception to the rule.The HBO series True Blood in raunchy, violent and vulgar, but it is also fabulously entertaining. And by introducing other 3 dimensional chara...

    I feel like Sookie is always the one to get the brunt of everything. She is always being put thru hell and manages to come back the same strong woman as always. Still cannot stand Bill hes an asshole and creepy. Now Eric, mmmhmmmm love me some Eric Northman! And let’s talk about Alcide!!!! Oh lord almighty. He is amazing! But for real he needs to get his shit together with his ex, I mean hes like a “puppy” (Pun Intended!) Overall this was a...

    The 3rd instalment in the Sookie Stackhouse series. Club Dead again finds Sookie in a bad situation thanks to her new Vampire “friends”, but she also seems to have Vampire Bill, Vampire Eric & Werewolf Alcide all vying for her attention as well. I guess every cloud has a silver lining. Myself, I would probably choose Alcide or maybe Eric The Sookie Stackhouse novels are light, fast & fun reads. Definitely enjoyable. The 3rd instalment in ...
