Dead In the Family

Dead In the Family

By Charlaine Harris

 

The plot is a bit weak, rather disappointing, unlike other Sookie books by Charlaine Harris. All characters have their family members roped in with a lanky thread.

There seems inconsistent flow of logic. I did not understand how the juicy character of Eric transforms into a love sick Viking without any real “life-changing” experience. Some characters just seem to have been brought up to fill pages and then discarded abruptly.

The main plot seems to have no help from the rather loose sub-plots; the love scenes were scrawny; the fairies, the werewolves and the vampires don’t add much value; and Snookie’s character seems to be thinning out at some level.

A somewhat unappealing book.
