This is a wonderful companion to the series. Charlaine doesn't leave anything out! Every book is broken down by day with a summary of each. The short story is pretty cool too although I wish she would have said where in the series it belonged, it took me a while to figure it out. I love love love the secret conversations with Eric & Bill. The font she chose for them is so them. I do however think she should have waited to release this book until the series was 100% completed in 2013 since she'll only be releasing 2 more books, 2012 & 2013 then it's over...

..some of the books in this series (esp. the first 4 or 5) are great fun and page turners, others are lacking, but the series overall is well worth reading. However.....how can this Companion Book (as a previous reviewer stated) have a wonderful plot, interesting characters, emotion and suspense??? It's a companion to the series, filled with lots of info, recipes and the authors thoughts, not a novel. Enjoy.

The Sookie Stackhouse Companion is filled to the covers with interesting and important Sookie information. It has a map of Bon Temps, Sookie’s family tree, and Harris explains the chronology of the short stories and novellas, also where other stories in the Sookieverse fit in. There’s a Q&A from Harris to fans, also a Q&A from TrueBlood creator, producer and writer, Alan Ball to fans. Sookie herself discusses creatures she’s met, there are trivia quizzes and over 30 pages of Down-Home Southern Recipes. Over 200 pages of this book is a piece called Life in Bon Temps by Victoria Koski which comprehensively summarises events in each of the first eleven novels, and includes transcripts of secret dialogue between Bill and Eric (or Pam) at the end of each one; this, and Koski’s “Guide to the World of Sookie Stackhouse”, a 150 page detailed alphabetical listing of characters are, no doubt, best read after the books themselves as they are filled with spoilers. Harris’s other works are discussed, and there’s a short story, Small Town Wedding, in which…… Sookie and Sam head to Wright, Texas for the wedding of Sam’s brother, Craig. But feelings in the town about the Were/Shifter reveal are mixed, and it seems not everyone is willing to let this wedding proceed unhindered. But is the level of protest spontaneous? A certain were-tiger makes an appearance, as do several shifters, and a character is introduced whose existence is significant in Harris’s Midnight, Texas series. Sookie discovers her savage side. Probably essential reading for the die-hard Sookie fan.

Great Commpanion Guide! Clears up some questions; tells where short stories fit in series; great secret dialogues between Bill and Eric and good synopsis of each book in series. Plus a bonus novella, "Small Town Wedding."

Can use as a good reference for anything from the series, even goes as far as to list every single character ever mentioned and give descriptions of each one. Cant wait for the next book with a storyline to come out!

This is a great companion to the series. I just finished re-reading the series from start to end and I was pining for the release of the next installment, which won't happen for six more months, when I came across this on BN and just had to get it. I loved the short story in the beginning, that details what exactly happened at Sam's brother's wedding in Texas. The private conversations between Eric and Bill were wonderful!
