I'm a True Blood fanatic and this is a must have for any fan. I enjoyed reading A Taste of True Blood because it got to the heart and soul of the show. It made me want to watch the seasons again because all of the things I learned, so I'll probably do that soon. This would be the perfect gift for your die-hard True Blood pals.

From a book editor POV, Ginjer explained how Ball's translation came about and his process. She explained the challenges and complexities of interpreting a first person POV story to an omniscient one. How Ball decided to extend Lafayette's role, tweak Tara's character and put Jason and Sam's storyline into the forefront. This helped me understand that indeed adapting a story to the screen is more complex and the things that have to be taken into consideration are immense.I found that personally enlightening and I took notes on my future comparisons in the future. However I still feel that if you fell in love with the novel and would like to adapt it, the least you could do is keep the core and integrity of the tale and not mess it up too much.
