Sookie is panicking the whole of the two day drive back home to Bon Temps that Frannie is going to call the police on her, for no good reason. No good reason that they would arrest her, and no good reason why Frannie would call them in the first place.
Amelia is overjoyed that she’s back home and safe, and they hug and stuff.
And there’s been a secret and surprise wedding!!
Tara and JB du Rone have married for unknown reasons!! But it’s so nice and happy that Tara has someone to look after her that I don’t care!!
She truly believed she’d swept all her bad memories into a corner. She was in the mood to credit the world with benevolence.
I would try that, too. I would do my best to smother the memory of that moment when I’d glanced back to see Quinn pulling himself along by his elbows. He’d reached Andre, who lay mute and stricken. Quinn had propped himself on one elbow, reached out with his other hand, grabbed the piece of wood lying by Andre’s leg and jammed it into Andre’s chest. And, just like that, Andre’s long life was over.
He’d done it for me.
How could I be the same person?
what what what
he killed andre
no, i mean literally why
sure he would be pissed, but he’d be pissed at eric and that oughtn’t effect sookie seeing as she’s a human and has no say in vampire stuff
shit is going to turn bad i can just feel it
What did I think of All Together Dead? I think this is the book that best encapsulates the very best and the very worst of Charlaine Harris’s writing. The world she has created is brilliant and really engrossing; it’s funny and fantastical, whilst still being grounded in reality and a world easily recognisable. I love the wider vampire world. I love the secondary and tertiary and one shot characters that pop up – they are creative and fun, and I love them. The problem is that I love them more than the main character herself. I can overlook the fact that the narrative is still odd and clunky in regards to time, and how hurriedly things happen to reach the end, but I do not like Sookie Stackhouse herself, and that is a big problem for me. She is a mean and vapid character, who only satisfies herself, and how slow she is is really grating. I don’t know how she will change and improve, as she is currently stuck on ‘childish’ and honestly, I couldn’t give a fuck about whether she ends up with Eric or with Bill or Amelia seduces her into a polyamorous relationship with Pam. It’s Amelia, and Pam, and Sophie-Anne that keeps me reading these books.
Predictions for book 8, From Dead to Worse:
- Sookie and Quinn are going to break up because she’s a lousy girlfriend
- Bill is going to die. Horribly.
- Diantha, the perky demon girl, is going to turn up alive and well.
- Amelia and Pam will be cute.
- Alcide will come back, as we haven’t seen him properly for a while.
- Bad shit with Jason and Crystal.
- Sam will come back properly and will be involved in the plot for real this time.
I’ll archive it all tomorrow, as I’m all tired and shit from moving back home after the holidays.
