    1. I read an interview with CH saying she had started this book, got off an tangent, and realized she'd finished the book not just the tangent. This book has that feel like it's really just 3 or 4 tangents and not a fully developed, interwoven novel. CH is an amazing author so I don't fault her. I chalk it up to this is the 8th book in a series of first person narrative that has gotten so complex with so many overlapping story-lines, it was bound to happen. This is, to me, a wrap-up book. Too many [...]

    2. This book could have been subtitled "How to Wind About Four Different Tiny Storylines into One Relatively Small Book and Maintain a Ridiculous Level of Detail So That Readers Can Calculate Exactly How Much Coffee My Heroine Drinks Each Day". Yes, it would have made marketing the book a bit difficult, but might have given readers a better idea of what to expect.Sookie encounters a war in the were community, then a war between the vampires, then she breaks off her relationship, then she discovers [...]

    3. OH, OH, OH. Sookie, Sookie, Sookie. This gal just cannot catch a break! In this book, we learn a little more about where Sookie's 'gift' comes from. She finally sees Quinn again. Eric has a couple of surprises for her, and gets a big one himself. There's death, mayhem, and magic all aroundd Sookie has to figure out if she can learn to accept her life in this new world of danger, insecurity, and maybe.love?If you've been following Sookie's story. GORIGHT NOW! Stop reading and go get this book.If [...]

    4. This was another enjoyable instalment in this series, and there were several things that surprised me.Sookie of course ended up in mortal danger at points in this book, and she was lucky to end up alive really. There were some problems between the wolf packs, and problems between the vampires, as well as the arrival of an unexpected relative to deal with, and Sookie really did find herself in some shockingly bad situations! That being said, there were some things that surprised me, and a couple [...]

    5. I want to give this one a four-star because it's C.Harris and she's amazing. Her voice is utterly unique and delightful and I love her characters. What's more, her world is very real, her vampires are interesting, and I love that she's taken all of her carefully laid-out plots and sent them topsy-turvy in the wake of Katrina. Very little has driven home the tragedy of Katrina as well as CH's last few books.But this was clearly not a whole novel -- it was more like a handful of short story ideas [...]

    6. I liked this book so much better than the one before it and I’ve been trying to figure out why but am coming up empty-handed. Without going overboard, this is basically what happens (mild spoilers only):--Sookie meets some new relatives--Quinn and his warm penis go missing--the Debbie Pelt issue willt.DIE!--there’s a Were war--a bunch of Weres die--Amelia’s dad shows up and says some stuff--Amelia’s mentor shows up and says some stuff--Amelia engages in some girl-on-girl action with Pam- [...]

    7. The book was entertaining, but something is beginning to bother me about the writing as I continue with this series, although I can't quite put my finger on it.Maybe it's that Sookie's inner voice is starting to sound like that of Harper Connelly, the protagonist of Harris' other paranormal series, and that's not a good thing. Like Harper, Sookie seems detached, reacting to events without really feeling anything. The shallow writing style also makes it seem as if Sookie isn't very bright. (Her S [...]

    8. Book Eight, and Harris can’t even get past the first line of the “Previously in this Series” summary before annoying me with her inaccuracy and stupidity. She begins: “If this was The Lord of the Rings and I had a smart British voice like Cate Blanchett, I could tell you the background of the events of that fall in a really suspenseful way.” This annoys me for three reasons:1. Cate Blanchett doesn’t have a British voice. She is Australian. 2. There is no such thing as a British acce [...]

    9. From Dead to Worse is the eighth Sookie Stackhouse book and, after reading it, definitely a comfort Sookie for me. Meaning, of the eight books so far, this is one I'll go back and reread when I want to feel good about things again. Right up there with numbers four and five-- Dead to the World andDead as a Doornail. And, yes, I realize that my favorite Sookie books are also the ones with a high Eric factor. That's just the way it is. Fortunately, Ms. Harris seems to be channeling the good Eric vi [...]

    10. From Dead to Worse is the eighth book in Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse series. After not liking the last installment overmuch (All Together Dead), I thought FDTW was a nice return to Sookie's roots and the foundation that made the series so good in the first place - Sookie being herself back home in Bon Temps, Louisiana.This book seemed like somewhat of a transition. After the huge events of the last book and the vampire summit, this book seemed to take a breath and recover a bit.The cast [...]

    11. 4.5 starsFrom Dead to Worse is the eighth full-length novel in the Sookie Stackhouse series by popular American author, Charlaine Harris. Sookie attends the society wedding of the year, expecting to go as a guest, but ending up as a bridesmaid and a barmaid. Enlisted for her telepathic powers, Sookie’s efforts to reconcile opposing factions of the Shreveport weres deteriorates into a battle that sees many dead. She also finds herself in the middle of a hostile takeover of the Louisiana vampire [...]

    12. Flufftastic. The Sookie soap opera rolls along in yet another installment. Life in Bon Temps, Louisiana, is never dull. This series is showing its longevity at this point, with an awful lot of threads to keep weaving, making this book very much a busy pattern.Relationships are always the main focus of these novels, and lots of things shake out in this installment. Quinn gets kicked to the curb for being a mama’s boy, Alcide becomes an also-ran but gains in werewolf pack status, Bill attempts t [...]

    13. Rating: 3.75* of fiveThe Publisher Says: After the natural disaster of Hurricane Katrina and the manmade explosion at the vampire summit, everyone human and otherwise is stressed, including Louisiana cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse, who is trying to cope with the fact that her boyfriend Quinn has gone missing.It's clear that things are changing whether the weres and vamps of her corner of Louisiana like it or not.

    14. This is the eighth book about Sookie Stackhouse, psychic barmaid, and it shows. There is a lot of history and a whole mess of background characters and ex-love interests clogging up the works. But the premise that made these books so popular holds true. Sookie remains a good, though far from perfect, person, and I enjoy reading her adventures from her kind-hearted but slightly catty point of view. Although Sookie's mind-reading gives her an edge in many situations, she's wildly underpowered comp [...]

    15. Imagine my surprise when on an unwanted trip to WalMart I found the new Charlaine Harris, on sale, and newly printed on paperback! Book 8 was read super fast by me, but relished like super spicy green coconut thai curry, as I now realize that only sporadically will I be afforded the opportunity to read up on Sookie & pals.I must admit my initial fondness for something that began masterfully enough but has since degraded itself to comedy, cliche and confusion. Sookie is still the same--as are [...]

    16. ❤ 5 From Dead to Worse ❤This book has it all, we have Erik ohhh baby He remembers!!! Yay! But there are things he is having to deal with, and he can’t devote his time to Sookie right now. Sookie is going through some crazy emotional roller-coasters. Her boyfriend the Weretiger isn’t who she hoped he would be. :( This made me sooo sad. Jason needs to be smacked I don’t care that he is Sookie’s brother what he did was wrong and I for one am glad Sookie laded down the law. Learning abou [...]

    17. The more I read this series, the more I like it. I've kinda stopped comparing it to the tv show nownda.**SPOILERS** Sookie finds herself in more supernatural trouble. The weres are being murdered, the vamps face a hostile takeover, Bob finally becomes a man again - an angry one and Eric remembers.She also dumps Quinn which I was gutted about. A stupid reason as well, he put his family first. Not being funny Sook but he's only known you about 5 mins, it's not like you're married or anything, why [...]

    19. The latest in the 'Sookie Stackhouse' series, this book ties up a number of loose ends from the previous novels, and charges ahead from the first page.I need to re-read it before I really form a strong opinion on this one. I absolutely enjoyed it, and it earns a 5/5 rating for sheer fun and fast paced plot, but the author made some decisions that I found personally disappointing, and I felt less involved in this book than I have been with the previous novels. That said, I did read it in one day [...]

    20. This is where it starts to go downhill, in my view. I recall skimming a lot of this because I just wasn't interested in the werewolf politics and war. Plus, the fairy stuff comes in more and that was never my favorite part of the series. If I'm not mistaken, Quinn is just almost written off in this one until Sookie finds out where he's been. I always disliked how their relationship ended. Quinn basically chooses his family over Sookie, but the way it played out seemed like a bit of lazy writing [...]

    21. This book seemed a little different - there was a series of different, and mostly unrelated, things happening rather than one main plot, which was unusual. It kinda seemed like there were several things/plot-lines/groups etc that needed to advance (plot-wise) so she threw them all into this book to move the story ahead. So it's important to read, in order to understand the next books in the series, but it's perhaps not as exciting as others.

    22. Longer than the last couple of books, better in some ways, it had multiple story lines. Sookie generally has one major issue to work through, this time she had half a dozen or so & it made the book feel a bit unfocused. Not bad & I'm glad I read it. It's fun, fluffy candy reading - very relaxing & enjoyable. It should certainly be read in order with the rest of the series.

    23. NOTE: I didn't mark this review as containing spoilers, but it does discuss general plot direction. It reveals the general tone of the last half of the book. Spoiler purists may want to hold off. Most people will be fine.A fine addition to the Sookie Stackhouse books, Dead to Worse sees Sookie dealing with the continuing aftermath of the debacle in New Orleans. Her boyfriend is still missing, the witch she picked up as a roommate is still complicating her life, her real grandfather wants to talk [...]

    24. So I liked this book, but I also disliked this book. I think this is the most confused I've been about a book ever. I really enjoyed being in the Sookie-verse again, and I always enjoy Harris' writing style. I got to see all my old favorites and meet some new people. Sookie is getting a backbone, which is good, and during her whole talk with Quinn, I was screaming "You go girl!" because face it everyone wants to be someone's only one. I mean he should have called her after leaving the hospital t [...]

    25. "Men are incomprehensible assholes," I said to Amelia."No shit," she said. "When I was searching for Bob today, I found a female cat in the woods with kittens. And guess what? They were all black-and-white."I really had no idea what to sayWhy did this crack me up? Bob is Amelia's boyfriend that she accidentally turned in to a cat.I swear, baby, it's not what it looks like!So, there are a lot of different storylines going on in this book, but no romance at all. That was kind of refreshing. Sookie [...]

    26. From Dead to Worse, the eighth book in the Sookie Stackhouse series, is an oddly transitory kind of book. A lot of plotlines from previous books--clear back to Book Four--get resolution of a kind, and groundwork is laid down for what will clearly be future plotlines for the series. We've got a New and Mysterious Relation of Sookie's showing up. We've got resolution on at least two Love Interest plots, and advancement on one other, possibly two. We've got new evidence that Sookie's brother is a m [...]

    27. Oh, Sookie! What's not to love. I was ecstatic when this came in the mail yesterday. I had almost forgotten that I had bought it!I love that all the Sookie Stackhouse novels are like several stories within one novel. I know some people may feel like it makes the books seem like short stories, but I know, when one mystery get's all wrapped up in it's little complete package, and I have a coupla hundred pages left, I'm a happy girl!Sookie is still recovering from the vampire summit and looking for [...]

    28. I managed to make this book last the whole weekend, instead of staying up all night Friday with it.This was a great installment. One of the things I love about Sookie is how real she is as a person. She can be selfish, she can make wrong decisions and feel bad for them later. She's a human being. (Well, mostly.)Some questions were resolved in this book, and I wonder if Harris is starting to wrap up the series. I find myself hoping that's not the case, because I love spending time in Bon Temps.Ha [...]

    29. Oh Sookie. I finally figured out why I keep reading about you. I feel like (8 books into this) I know you so well. You are like an old friend that I can just pick up with at any point. And even though there aremanythings about your series that drive me crazy (the poor editing in places, the inconsistencies, the oftentimes author manipulated plotline, etc.), I can't help but root for you.Anyway, I will continue to read about you but I'm not going to lie--I really hope your series ends one day.
