I really liked this book. It was recommended to me by a friend of my mom's and at first I was skeptic. But after reading just a little bit of it I was hooked. The plot is very good, the characters well developed, and the addition of mystery just adds to how good it it. I've read the whole series, except the newest one, and have added them to my favorites. Sookie, the main character, is really down to earth, even with her gift and it lets us readers connect more with the story. This book is worth reading, along with the rest of the series.

Dead Until Dark is a delightful romp, vampire romance and murder mystery rolled into one, with a little--just a little!--social commentary to hold it together. Sookie Stackhouse is a sassy small-town Southern girl with a disability; she's a telepath, and it takes all her powers of concentration not to be constantly overwhelmed by the thoughts of those around her. At the story's beginning she's working in a bar, living with her Grandmother, and resolutely remaining a virgin--too much mental noise involved with the prospect of sex.
Then she meets Bill, the vampire. Oh, Bill's not the only vampire; for two years, now, vampires have been out of the coffin ("as they laughingly put it") and living among humans. Bill Compton has returned to his hometown of Bon Temps, Louisiana and is living in his old family home and attempting to mainstream into human society. As things will, one leads to another, and Sookie and Bill become involved.
Charlaine Harris has created a charming, strong, self-aware heroine in Sookie Stackhouse. She also creates a strong sense of place in her depiction of Bon Temps and its environs
