Book Review: Charlaine Harris' Living Dead in Dallas



I just finished the second installment of Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse novels - Living Dead in Dallas - and I still believe that the True Blood adaptation is more powerful and more interesting.  However, the second season of that series drew out too long on the maenad, but at least, Lafayette continued to live and have an interesting life in the TV series than in the book.  The TV series made several changes from the book version, which I think, made the series more interesting.  Lafayette not dying is one.  Then, that old vampire, Godric, became more interesting in the TV series because he became a savior.  In the book, he wanted his suicide to be used as some spectacle by that anti-vampire group!  Also, the maenad survives in the book, but dies in the TV series, since she's a really bad girl in it.  In the book, she is just as bad, but is allowed to live.

Anyhow, I am still looking forward to the third chapter of the book, as we go deeper into the lives of the other vampires, and the coming out of the werewolves!
