Club Dead

Book cover for Club Dead by Charlaine Harris

I got a little behind with my book reviews, so here’s another one right on the heels of my last.  I finished this one over the weekend while waiting for my hair appointment (I’m desperately trying to keep myself on a schedule to have my hair trimmed, the past few years it’s been hit or miss…but, I digress).  After reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo – I needed a quick and easy, entertaining read.  Sookie #3 to the rescue.  Like I said, this series is quick, enjoyable, entertaining and a perfect “palate cleanser” between denser books.

As far as I can tell, this book is pretty much what the third season of True Blood covers.  Now, granted, there’s a lot going on in True Blood that wasn’t in the book – but, perhaps it’s in later books?  Anyway, I think I enjoy the books themselves a lot more than the series, although with the series you do get Alex Skarsgard.  mmm….wait, where was I?  Oh yeah, True Blood.  The other thing I love about the series that you don’t really get in the books is Pam.  I love Pam in True Blood.  I particularly like her dialog.  For instance…

Pam: I don’t know what it is about me that makes people think I want to hear their problems. Maybe I smile too much. Maybe I wear too much pink. But please remember I can rip your throat out if I need to. And also know that I am not a hooker. That was a long, long time ago.

Pam: You picking up what I’m putting down?
Lafayette: Yes.
Pam: Good, I’ll be back tomorrow for the money.

Love it.  But, back to the books – well worth the read.  I always enjoy taking a little foray into Bon Temps, when I get the chance.
