I was surprised I had rated this just three stars four years ago because this time around I thought I would almost give if five stars, but I settled for four. It really wasn't an amazing "best book ever" sort of book, but I enjoyed it. I'm not sure if it's worth four stars, but that's how felt right after I had finished the book. :)
Let me go through the reasons why I deducted the one star:
1. Bill. Well "duh", he's boring.
- Being sookie. She's very annoying!
- To her, rape is OK (it's not! Never!!!) because he couldn't help it because he's a vampire and he was hungry and tortured, and he didn't know it was her. What if it was someone else!?
- She saying things such as:
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
D. Being Sookie. She's extremely annoying!
Reasons I thought the book was awesome:
1. Bill and Sookie breaking up.
2. Eric almost having her way with Sookie.
3. Alcide Herveaux
One other thing I can't get over my head with Sookie is what she counts as being OK just because someone is a vampire and what she doesn't count as OK despite that you're a vampire. Like, it's not OK for Bill to go after the Fellowship of the Sun members who brutally attacked a large group of his fellow vampires who he cared about even though it was his natural instinct and he couldn't help it (Book 2), (while Sookie herself was smooching with Eric the Hunk).
However it is OK that Bill almost drains her and pretty much rapes her because that is his natural instinct as a vampire and he couldn't help himself.
But then on the other hand when his maker, Lorena, calls she judges him as cheater without realising that when his maker calls, he actually has to go, because that's how vampires work.
Why is Sookie so frustratingly annoying!?
