Book Review-Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

Sookie Stackhouse is a waitress in a bar in Bon Temps, Louisiana and has a gift for reading people's minds, which can give you a bad headache if you don't shut the voices out. Then she meets Bill, a vampire who she cannot read and a love affair begins that sets tongues wagging, especially when local girls start to get murdered. The girls are fangbangers-vampire groupies but all of them are girlfriends of Sookie's brother Jason, making him the chief suspect. Sookie turns detective to find out who the real murderer is, bringing her into contact with scary vampires and Bill cannot always be there to protect her as the killer stalks her. 
  Sookie is really likeable-naive, friendly, helpful and the type of girl you would want as a friend. Bill is well written as a 'nice' guy vampire who continually shows how dangerous he is, ready to kill anyone who upsets Sookie. Jason and Sam are the nice guys in the book unlike the way Jason is portayed in the series 'True Blood'. I much prefer Ms Harris' versions thank you! The books have humour, a good plot, characters that are not just cardboard cutouts, and you don't really want to put the book down. Well recommended!
