I must say that I became addicted to this series after the first book however, my love is waning. The books and relationships are predictable. Every book there is a new guy that falls head over heels in love with Sookie, and it's becoming tiresome. Charlaine never gives us closure on any of her relationships or flings. This means that Sookie is loved, wanted, and lusted after by all who have had her. So...what's the count now? There's Sam, Alceade, Bill, Eric, Quinn, and the newcomer that's bound to love her too in the next book. Enough already! I started reading this series because I liked Sookie's character, but I've come to dislike Sookie and her continuing need to have her ego stroked. I now read the books for Eric alone. I hope that Charlaine goes back and reads her own series so that she may be reminded of how independent and humble Sookie was in the beginning. If the series continues on its current path I'm afraid it will lose one of its followers.

i was sooo confused on what was going on right from the beginning. when the book started mentioning sookie's cousin hadley having died i thought i had the wrong book, and had to go back and check to see if i had missed something. and when i found out i hadnt and the book started getting more indepth about hadleys story i kept getting more confused and more frustrated!! this was the worst book so far in the series in my opinon, the other books flowed and didnt confuse the heck out of me like this one did. i was very dissapointed.

Come on Charline Harris!!!! Another man that falls in "love" with Sookie?? So now Sookie has feelings for...Eric,Bill,Sam,Alcide,uhh Quinn, am I missing someone? See! There are so many guys now I can't even keep track! This book was pretty confusing but I still liked it just because it's part of the series. The ONLY guy I want Sookie to get together with is Eric and Eric only. He's been by her side all along but Charline keeps bringing in new guys. I hope the next book is better and Sookie starts to settle down with a man.

I felt like I read my books out of order when I found out about Sookie's cousin becoming a vamp then dying. What's that all about? I felt like a major part of the story was skipped.

Definitely Dead is the sixth installment of Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse series. Fans of the quirky Sookie Stackhouse will once again find themselves absorbed in her world of vampires, werewolves, fairies, and other magical creatures. In Definitely Dead, our heroin is subjected yet again to a series of strange and risky events which we are sure to find immensely entertaining. Avid readers of the "southern vampire" series may find themselves wanting to see more of Bill and Eric, but it's a fun read nonetheless. And fortunately for us, books seven through ten of the series (which do feature more of Bill and Eric) are waiting at our local Barnes and Noble bookstore.

After five books in the series, I've come to understand Ms. Harris' writing style and know that her books really do take place in a very short period of time, with roughly several weeks separating one book from the other in the life of the characters. So imagine my surprise when I pick up this book and discover an entire storyline with which I was not familiar. I checked and double-checked the bibliography at the beginning of my book to find out if I accidentally skipped one. I even went back to my personal library to flip through the previous book, Dead as a Doornail, to see which book it says was the next in the Sookie Stackhouse series. While all my research indicates that I did not skip a book, Hadley's story and the fact that we come in on it after her death, have already been introduced to several new characters, including the Queen, continues to rattle me. You would think that something like this was worth mentioning prior to this book, and I still believe that I must have missed something or that one of my books was missing entire chapters. I mean, it's the Queen of the Louisiana vampires! She deserves a better introduction than in hindsight because Sookie's already met her. So if anyone can shed any light on this little mystery, I would greatly appreciate it. Getting that out of the way, Ms. Harris does it again! She continues to amaze, entice, confuse, and thrill me with this story. Battles and intrigue, mystery and blossoming romance - it doesn't get any better than this. Quinn may just be my new personal favorite, and I am definitely anxious to see how their story continues. Sookie has been through the emotional wringer more times than is healthy in a very short period of time and deserves to find some long-term happiness. The confidence and self-assurance, and the fact that he won't drink her blood, is definitely an attraction. Think Alcide, who I really liked, without all the attitude and issues over ex-girlfriends. I'm still reeling from the announcement about Bill and his motives for moving back to Bon Temps. I finished the book last night, and I still feel stunned and more than a little betrayed. This might just very well be the first vampire book where I am not rooting for the vampires anymore, or at least one of them. It will be interesting to see if he continues to profess his love for her and if she can ever forgive him, as I can't get over the idea that Bill and Sookie belong together. Angel and Buffy, Edward and Bella, Spike and Buffy - you can see where a girl might get such ideas. Still, Bill's betrayal is unfathomably low. This continuing storyline alone will keep me coming back for more. In spite of my concern that I skipped a book, I remain completely enamored with this series. I am still surprised by what the characters do, and I am rooting for Sookie to find less drama and more happiness with every fiber of my being. Bring on the next book!!

Loved this book! A wonderful addition to the Sookie series. I loved the parts with Quinn. If when reading the book you feel that you are missing some information on Sookie's cousin and her background... you haven't read the short story, "One Word Answer" found in BITE by Charlaine Harris. This will give you all the background on Hadley.

I loved this story! I also fell for quinn hes a great guy but for some reason my hart is still set on sookie and bill being together yes i understand he lied but jusr the person he was he still remains even thow he is no longer alive but think about it hes had a wife and children he knows what love is and what it feels like the most and this didn happen in the book but for you all who are sookie stackhouse fans in the episode on true blood after she found out the truth bill said the sweetest words he said "its not what you are i fell in love with its who you are" and i fell in love with bill myself after that moment we have all had first loves thats someone you'll never forget and she shouldnt either

I have to agree with some of the other reviewers in that this was my least favorite of the series so far. I'm actually a Bill fan (probably one of the only ones) even after reading this book. I already knew he would betray her but I believe he actually loves her. Maybe because I'm a hopeless romantic. I am getting a little tired of how everyone seems to want to have sex with Sookie. And how in pretty much every book she's kissing at least 2 boys. Even when she's dating someone. Like during the part where she's at the queen's place and all of a sudden Eric kisses her. I'm like...where did that come from? ALthough I don't think Sookie will end up with someone like Quinn, I believe he's a good change for her. She needs to get away from the vampires for a while but I feel like it wont be for long. It's not my favorite but I'll of course keep reading so I can read all of the other story lines and go even deeper into the world Harris creates!

I've been tearing through this series at lightning speed and it's been a very enjoyable read but I have to say this book left me a little cold. I agree with a lot of other reviewers that it felt like we were missing some important information that we should have known about from a previous book. I'm also a little over Sookie and her semi-relationships with everyone under the sun. Bill, Sam, Eric, Calvin (she at least considers it), Alcide and now Quinn. I feel like her relationship with Quinn is filler material just to stretch the series out, it's just not that substantive. Her relationship with Eric is by far the most interesting and the addition of yet another love interest feels like stalling more than enhancing the story line. By the way, is Sookie just desperate to date someone? Anyone who will give her the time of day? It's beginning to feel like that. Harris keeps dragging out all of these superfluous characters that seem to dilute the best parts of the story line. I have really, really enjoyed this series but I hope that she gets back to some of the core characters because it's getting to where the best characters are absent and you find youself reading on just to get to something better.

I have to say that the new man in Sookie's life is wonderful, he can go out in day light and they can share things like breakfast and maybe even kids. But I have to say that it hurt like hell to learn those things about Bill. I was almost hoping that Sookie and Bill had a chance. But besides that the book was great, it set it up for another great read and I can't wait to see what happens in the next one.

Definitely Dead is the sixth book in the Sookie Stackhouse series by popular American author, Charlaine Harris. As Sookie waits for word she can claim the legacy from her now definitely dead cousin Hadley, she encounters a surfeit of happy couples, including some of her exes, and there are several weddings being planned. Her own interest is piqued by a rather handsome were-tiger, Quinn, who confirms the attraction is mutual. But together, they seem to draw the wrong sort of attention. When Sookie heads to the Big Easy to sort through her cousin’s things, she finds something quite unexpected in Hadley’s closet. In this instalment, Sookie’s telepathy is put to use to save a life; Sookie has occasion to call a paranormal doctor, aid the Queen of Louisiana, escape from pursuit through a swamp, attend a Royal Vampire Ball, and confess to murder. She is told she has special blood, learns quite a bit about weres, shifters, fairies, vampires, witches and demons, watches the paranormal equivalent of a security video playback and has her heart broken. Bill makes a confession that has Sookie unable to envisage ever not hating him. Plenty of humour, action and an exciting climax will have fans looking forward to the next instalment, All Together Dead. 4.5 stars

These books have gotten better with each installment and this one is no exception. First, I have really come to love Harris' writing style. She makes the sentences and dialogue flow and really makes her story and characters come alive in a simplified way. She makes writing a novel seem easy! Second, the plot was exciting and once again kept me turning the pages. I've really come to love Sookie as a character; she has her insecurities like everyone else and is considered a "good girl" but takes risk and doesn't worry too much about the moral dilemmas. Which I personally find refreshing. I'm tired of reading about characters who do something drastic then spend pages on their regrets. I was shocked about the revelation about Bill (which I won't spoil for other readers here) but it seems to fit perfectly with his character. I love Eric more and more with each installment. I'm not too sure how I feel about Quinn at this point. Quinn seems a little too perfect and cookie cutter, but I'm excited to see what might happen in the next book. Highly recommended.

I really am addicted to this series - unfortunately, this was by far my least favorite book. You may find yourself lost in the beginning - wondering if maybe you skipped a book - don't panic, you haven't! It's a little disconcerting but you get through it. I am so disappointed that the author made Bill such a loathesome character - what's all that about? I just hope that there can be some reconciliation between Bill and Sookie!!!

I love all of the books in this series. They're the kind that you just can't put down! Normally, her books flowed smoothly into the next. However, this book confused me quite a bit. Several times I had to check to see if I had missed a book. From the get-go, Sookie talks of her dead vamp cousin, and of meeting the queen. WHAT?! She talks about it in a way that makes you feel out of the loop. I had no clue what was going on for quite a while! But I kept on reading, and loved it. I can forgive Charlaine Harris for the confusion, because overall the book was delightful. I'm glad Sookie is done w/ Bill, though I'm not thrilled w/ Quinn. I'm cheering for Eric!
