Such an amazing book!!! Too many givens aren’t what my memory offers And more than anything Sookie just craves peace. Her first Teagarden, Real Murdersgarnered an Agatha nomination. Dead Reckoning, by Charlaine Harris 1 12 Jan 17, It was less than satisfying, and not just because of the major obstacle that was revealed.
Charlaine Harris has been a published novelist for over thirty-five years. B And her underwear just happened to be that soaked????
That’s an understatement, really. Emotions are running high.
I find myself left with a lot of answered questions from the previous book, but a hell of a lot more now. It is probably one of the stalest lines I have ever read but I remember the first time I read it in the back of Dead And Gone as a special preview while Sookie’s torture is still fresh, I didn’t find it corny or flat.
Nevermind that she hasn’t said word one of her desire rexkoning be free to Eric, or even to herself. Although, that’s not surprising b’c CH was turning him into Eric to a degree.
Not consistently stupid, but occasionally stupid. Sookie’s starting to genuinely consider the real costs of a relationship with him: And sometimes she does. I feel like recokning just a hop, skip and jump from becoming something more. I suspect that, barring a return to the terrible flatness of the un-fun All Together DeadI’ll read along in the series.

I thought it’s ok since the series has become quite popular and a lot of crappy novels are popping out and I sometimes find it insulting when a crappy book is priced higher than the really good ones but now I think the pricing is absurd. It certainly feels that way when one is internetless for long stretches!
Alright, I r I’ve been getting tired of this series for awhile now. I am not reading any more of this. I reckning this whole book had been from her point of view because by the end of the book I was tired of this mirror-world circus. It has some really good parts but they are all tied together with seemingly random and transient cords and then brought together for the final assembly. How could I forget. There are so many folks I love in Sookie’s world, and it is real treat catching up with bok Pam – we got to see a softer side to Rekoning with her love interest and I enjoyed that.
I won’t be out trolling for converts, though, like I do with Louise Penny’s addictive-as-chocolate-coated-nicotine-infused-heroin-enrobed-crack Three Pines mysteries.
You partake in this life, these are the realities that come with it. I begin to think Sookie Stackhouse is actually not that nice a person. And there are major developments in the blood-bond issue between Eric and Reckobing. No words, other than the few above, can truly describe how disappointed I am with this book and this series. OK maaayaybe a little doubt b’c CH likes to play her audience Eric is being weaved out of the story gradually.
Now all I have to do it wait for the next book to get those answered. And Eric may have his selfish tendencies but unless the previous books were a lie, he loves Sookie and would not have chomped on her neck like that, even angry.
Even worse, you do it multiple times in a single book. A few old favourites make significant appearances here: Daed – finally stands up for herself in some respects and that was much needed for her. Well for me anyway. There was also the trip to the elementary school.
By the time book 4 rolled around I thought I might combust over the tension. It does not bear repeating!!!!! It does look like there is a setup for a breakup in the next book but with a possible reconciliation in the last book thanks to the magical cluviel dor.
Sookie has always liked Terry and they’ve always been cordial, but it’s not like she’s ever spilled secrets to him or has been close to him at all. Soon Charlaine was looking for another challenge, and the stckhouse was the much darker Lily Bard series.
CH is definitely recycling her Eric material into the new Bill.
I always thought this is a good thing because every SS books is long well written story and always reckonning something new. Though I’m not happy with where some storylines SEEM to be going, there are others that are intriguing I’ll leave it at that so as to not spoil anything.
Harris write the books just to get more money out of sales? Why were Lily Bard and Jack in the book? In what universe would southern gentleman Bill tell Sookie she has great tits?
