Book Review: Living Dead in Dallas: A True Blood Novel

Living Dead In Dallas: A True Blood Novel

Having seen the show first and now reading the books, I knew it wouldn’t exactly be a surprise what happens in the books. I read book one of the Sookie Stackhouse series (Dead Until Dark) and the TV show had followed it so closely that although it was a great book, I knew exactly what would happen.

Luckily for me, reading Living Dead in Dallas, it was much better. The TV show writers had followed this book very loosely and although it very roughly had the same storyline, everything seemed to develop differently. The Maenad had a much smaller part, unlike the show where she was the big villain at the end of season2, and Sookie’s infiltration of the Fellowship of the Sun was much different. While the TV show complimented this book perfectly, it was different enough to feel like I was reading something new!

And as for Eric, he’s just as swoon-worthy in the book as he is in the show and I love how comedic the character of Eric is in the novels. It’s a shame that Layfaette’s character was written out so early in the novels – it makes me very glad that the TV show decided to keep him as a regular character! Onwards to book 3 for me now!

5 Stars *****
