The third book in the series, the first book without a TV series adaptation yet, and thus; finally some new action! Where the two former books where just an easy read-through, this was exciting. I had no idea what was coming next, and the tension between Sookie and her two vampire men left me wanting more after finishing Living Dead in Dallas. And Club Dead did not disappoint!
Although I was ready for some major mess in Sookie’s love/sex life, I didn’t expect this much. I’ve already mentioned Sookie’s somewhat slutty behavior, and if she continues like this she should start charging her men! I do accept it this time though, with all that happens in this book she’s somewhat excused. I wish we could hear more of here internal struggle, thoughts, feelings etc. about all these men and why she does what she does. It might’ve explained a lot. I still miss this from the Twiligt Saga.
The mystery in this book is somewhat more appealing to me than the cult storyline; abduction and torture is more my kind of entertainment! I’m never able to see what’s coming next when reading, even though I’m pretty good at foreseeing twists and turns in movies, so the plot was okay and held my attention throughout the book.
One thing I really don’t like in the Southern Vampire Mystery books is the constant repetitions of what’s happened in the previous books. It was annoying in Living Dead in Dallas, and even more annoying in this. I’m dreading to start reading book #4 because of this. Who reads just a random book in a series like this? No-one is my guess, so should Harris’ be – and so she should avoid the repetitions. A very short summary of “what has happened” as the first chapter would be better, even though it’s not necessary at all!
And as always; not at all quality literature, but still entertaining – and I’m content with that.
