Part of my 101 in 1001 list
So far I've recommended this series to everyone I know. And I helps that everyone I know already loves watching TrueBlood.
But here's the thing - most people (TrueBlood devotees) are hesitant to read these because they are afraid it will spoil the show. And yes, while certain plot points will be given away (for example, the murderer from the end of Season 1), there are PLENTY MORE that are totally different.
For example, Lafayette, Jason, Tara all have VERY different roles in the books. There's been speculation whether the producers and directors of TrueBlood will use one of the BIGGEST PLOT POINTS from the series- so, even though I've read all the books, I really don't know how the TV series will play out.
That said - I loved this whole series. They were easy, summer reads.
One thing you should know - There's a short story that needs to be read before you start Definitely Dead, called One Word Answer. Thanks to some sleuthing from TaraSG, I learned that Charlaine Harris writes Sookie short stories.
But seriously. Read it. Starting with Dead until Dawn
