I have listened to all of the sookie stackhouse books now and for the finale book just seemed a bit of a let down. As always johanna parker dose a great job with the narrating. But with a story line that wonders and at some points seems a little random its a lack luster ending for a great book series.

Well, Sookie lives happy ever after. And, that, folks is the whole story and nothing but story. Charlaine Harris dialled this one in, it is a paper thin story and plot, where almost nothing of note happens, random characters come and go, the vamps who let's face it, are the whole reason for the series of books, go out like a damp squib. Really, very poor.

Would you try another book from Charlaine Harris and/or Johanna Parker?
Charlaine has lost her passion, this book was simply slapped together in a disinterested manner.
Has Dead Ever After turned you off from other books in this genre?
No, but I will be very hesitant to waste my money on CH again
Any additional comments?
If you have fallen in love with this series as I have, then do not read this book. I wish that I had read the reviews before hand, but alas Sookie has crashed and burnt.

I was basically just 'getting through' the series by this time, I was so glad the end was in sight. Sookie Stackhouse is a self important, bigoted character and I found it difficult to enjoy everything through her skewed sense of the world, at the same time I was sick of so many characters blaming her for their own faults or having to deal with the consequences of their actions. I know it's realistic, but it's frustrating and I'm not reading a series about a telepathic waitress' dealings with werewolves, vampires, witches, fairies and shape shifters for realism. Though this final volume ends with a bang (hardy har har), it feels like the relationships were thrown together (or pulled apart) at short notice to serve a different, unknown purpose of the author's. If you've persevered with the series you'll probably be content with how it's all wrapped up, but not what I'd call satisfied. This was the protein shake of stories, all the necessary ingredients/nutrients are there, but you're still left with wanting.
