Jan 26. Almost finished and finding this the most interesting book in the series, perhaps because Bill is absent and Eric has taken center stage. Even with amnesia, Eric is a far more interesting character than Bill, who is about as bland and ordinary as his name. I'm also enjoying the introduction of new types of supernatural characters and the glimpses into were/shifter society, although I'm a bit peeved that every
supernatural male Sookie runs across wants her. It gets to be a bit much.
Jan 29. Ah. I read a spoiler recently that sheds some light on why all the Supes want Sookie. I'll have to wait and see how that plays out in later books.
Finished the book last night. There's something almost poignant about Sookie and Eric's brief and bittersweet relationship. This definitely is my favorite of the series so far.
