Pdf Book Dead Reckoning ☆ Charlaine Harris – chaplinshotel.co.uk
review Dead ReckoningI am willing to bet that this book was as much of a torture for Charlaine Harris to write as it was for me to r It seems to me that Ms Harris is being and influenced by the show which in case of the novel is a bad thing Does anybody else have a feeling that the author is setting a scene for a convenient fading out Eric and a not so miraculous reintroduction of Bill The dialogue between S and E is stale and New Menopausal Years lacks in energyWhereas Bill s character all of the sudden shows signs of sense of humour In short I wouldn t be surprised if in the end of the series Eric ended up dead and Bill emerged as a Sookie s trueoveWell if I were Stephen Moyer I would be thrilled WelllThis is a solid Faja (Naslouchač, liked it but 35 stars If it wasn t for the fact that there MIGHT be a HUGE plot inconsistency in this book the convo between Sook Claude Dermot about Niall Eric being in cahoots I would give it 4 stars but I m trying to figure out if something might actually be a well placedie by CH or not but I m not so sure yetEdited on May 14th After doing some digging I think the bit I thought was a plot inconsistency is intentional See bottom of reviewHowever overall I really enjoyed this installment once the ball got rolling the 1st 50% was a bit boring for me I do believe this was indeed a huge turning point for not just Sookie Eric but Sookie herself The end scene with Eric was ikeBAM She has some very big thinking to do about what she wants for herself what she is willing to accept about her ife the people she surrounds herself withI don t have many doubts that EricSookie are going wind up together OK maaayaybe a Dirty Work little doubt b c CHikes to play her audiencebut really It wouldn t make sense to have it be anyone else 11 books in a few shorts as well I found this installment to signify their next big bump in the road the next trial tribulation for their relationship watch how they get through it In this book for the 1st time Sookie was upfront Discussing the future aging babies etc she has grown continues to It does Hearts Farthings lookike there is a setup for a breakup in the next book but with a possible reconciliation in the The Mount Shasta Mission last book thanks to the magical cluviel dor Who knows for sure thoughSemi spoilersThere were aot of typical SVM hi jinks humor in this book Sookie s naked jaunt into Bill s house her rambling inner monologue Irrelevant was hilariousI even Little Darlings liked Bill Aot Although that s not surprising b c CH was turning him into Eric to a degree Not kidding CH is definitely recycling her Eric material into the new Bill His uote as to why he Greenwich loves Sookie complete with a comment about her chest so un Billike is practically verbatim Eric to Sookie in DTTW That s rightgo check it out And his moveIs it Christmas Are you my early present was also classic Eric It s a ittle tedious CH s manipulation of the audience but whatever It is what it is I suppose if you are going to finish this ride be prepared for the tactics that come with itSookie was back to herself but in better form than ever in many ways Aside from her own homicidal tendencies she is growing mature in control Or trying to be at east She is taking a much Your Name Here larger stand for herself in what she will tolerate from the people in herife whereas in the past she almost assumed their feelings was able to be manipulated I Mate Me [If You May] (The Millennium Wolves, like her relationship with Eric aot Warts all I found her insecurities misgivings well founded as well as his own anger resentment fear I really enjoy seeing them having to go through a ton of crap to work it out Like a real relationshipI also True loved the scene with Eric Sookie after the bond broke Not the sex scene mind you b c that was whatever it was one page of throwing it in but it did to me show their huge relief that Sookie does in factove Eric tremendously as he does her More than that I ove their bit of dialog afterwardHowever the scene that blew me away was at the end when she freaked out amongst the assassination ruin in which she had the majority hand in rallying plotting When Eric took her blood after rightly calling her a hypocrite didn t take the pain out of it HOLY COW I know this will "be a much debated scene very controversial but I thought it was just SPOT ON So good So dark So " a much debated scene very controversial but I thought it was just SPOT ON So good So dark So deepIt was awesome Well for me anyway I mean here Sooks has been complaining the ast 2 books how she wants Victor to die by her own hands even She s the one that rallies Eric co It s her plan they go with then at the endb c she hates what she sees in herself not only that but was a part of had the Fucking Trans Women largest hand in plotting she projects onto Eric co b c it s easiest to do thatHimetting her feel the pain was his way to me anyway of saying deal with it Face it This is Slavery Reborn life with mea vamp Sookie I m not going to sugarcoat it for you Accept it accept me You partake in thisife these are the realities that come with it We re alive Isn t that what you wanted mostI don t know what CH is going to have her do but I find this turning point really Compelling She Scares Herself The Lengths She She scares herself The You Can Make Anything Sad lengths she willing to go to for those sheoves to survive the macabre situations she finds herself in as a resultI thought it was a very clever deep sceneThe CD fairy Life Leverage love token is a bit of a cop out but I will wait to see how CH wields it Oh wait we have a potion which will amazingly come in SO handy Erwel seeThe potential Fairy plot is uite devious It seems as if CH is foreshadowing someone playing dress up in Eric or someone else s skin to potentially get Sook An Alternate Cover for this ASIN can be found hereWith her knack for being in trouble's way Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte's the bar where she works Since Sam Merl. .
Up the duff IDK but all the material is there manthose Fairies are sneakyFunnily enough I felt the worst for Sookie in regard to Amelia Not that Amelia s meddlesome betrayal was a surprise to me I figured it was only a matter of time but she really went all out Sookie is a character with a rare handful of people she can trust not even that She is uite often alone And that theme featured a ot in this installment With Eric s new day man being a Alhambra lone wolf Eric asking her to move in with him b c the thought of her being alone feeling her fear made him crazy Her really feeling the isolation in this installment esp when she kicks everyone out of her home Poor Sookie SookieOverall this place which Sookie is in yet another crossroads deciding who she can trust turn to what will happen to her relationship what will that mean for her future This is all great meaty stuffAnd now for my biggest issuethe potential plot inconsistency it s the convo between SC D about how Niall Eric were in cahoots It soo doesn t stack I am investigating that one won t bog down the review with it but in fairness I will change my rating if it turns out that it s not a sloppy hole filling plot inconsistency b c CH didn t have enough material to plan 13 books Edited May 14th I thought when reading that b c CH has stated she writes by the seat of her pants that she was going back to try fit in plots in places she thought were vague enough in order to make things work now that she had to stretch the series out After all she has made aot of obvious errors in the past that her readers have caught called her on In this book CD tell Sookie that Eric had approached Niall to send protection for Sookie hence Niall calling in Claudine b c she was withering The implication being Eric knew who Niall was in connection to SookieCH recently stated in April that DR doesn t have a word about the history between Niall and Eric because it s not important to Sookie s story I think those crafty fairies are definitely up to something B 69% Satisfactory Notes Cozy and familiar while at the same time sloppy amateurish and blah No direction just seemingly random events 3 12 StarsI should start off by saying that though the Sookie Stackhouse series isn t my all time favorite series Eric Northman IS my all time favorite fictional character AND GODDAMN I LOVE ME SOME PAMHalf of the reason I ove these books is the Eric and Pam relationship I don t know why I have this feeling we will be disappointed with this installment I just feel the series needs a closure and it doesn t seem ike it I want Eric but I don t think I Its a Lat Lat Lat Lat World ll get all the Eric I need to get toove this series again It feels The Infinite Air like this book is just gonna be another chapter in the series and not as whole book I m not sure if I made myself clearlol Oh My GodI have never been so disappointed and conseuently angry by a book as I am right now and it is actually hard for me to type My brain is exploding right now This is going to be a rant This is going to contain cusses This is also going to call out Tru Blood People are going to eitherike this or not First Tru Blood has killed this series cue outrage from fans of the HBO show For the record this is not about those that The Spill like the show I don t but it s not about the fans It s about Harris complacency and riding on the success of the show which she absolutely should she s one of my favorite authors and is definitely entitled to it without giving thought to the booksHarris is noonger writing for a book medium to me she is writing something that may ook good on the screen and damn the conseuences I want to know about what is going on Sookie s head and not the same repetitive shit has been written in the past three books nor do I want to hear a diatribe about Christian morals that has been paraphrased from an earlier Chapter SHOW ME Do Not SHOW ME do not ME and for the ove of God do not TELL ME something you ve already told 450 words earlierThe show is the campy cousin of the series and while the Stackhouse series has always balanced Is It Bedtime Wibbly Pig? light sexy and dark theast two books have been a stagnant mess The characters have changed since this show into what s on the screen I don t ike the show I don t want to read a veiled script for the show Please remember those of us who had been fans of the book since before HBO needed a new show to take over the Sex and the City demographicsOnto the bookThis is me reading the first half of the book Eric was a bitch in
