“Dead Until Dark” Is Dead To This Competition

“Sookie Stackhouse is just a small-time cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana. Until the vampire of her dreams walks into her life-and one of her coworkers checks out….

Maybe having a vampire for a boyfriend isn’t such a bright idea.”



Sookie is a very optimistic person with a friendly personality. She sees the good in people and sometimes that can make her naive. Even though Sookie sounds like any normal human shes not. Sookie has the ability to hear people thoughts. Overall, I didn’t mind Sookie she was a little boring at sometimes but I didn’t mind her.

When I first met Bill he instantly reminded of Stefan Salvatore from ‘The Vampire Diaries’ tall, dark and quiet. He’s curious about the life normal humans live and what it’s like to be human. Compared to other vampires he’s different. He doesn’t live in a group or drink blood from humans, he tries to fit into the town. In the end, I found Bill a little boring. Sure, there were some sweet scenes between him and Sookie but his personality was plain.


The plot was ok. The clear problem was that there was a murderer running loose and that Sookie could possibly be the next victim. I feel like there were parts that were slow and in those slow parts the author would add things like Sookie plucking her eyebrows or shaving her legs that were kind of unnecessary but when the plot speeded up it was definitely more interesting.


The romance between Sookie and Bill is difficult and a little fast. They both have chemistry but they have problems telling each other how they feel. Later on, in the book Sookie realizes how impossible their relationship is because Bill’s a vampire and she’s human.

Final Thoughts 

Overall, I rate this book a 3 out of 5. The characters were ok, the plot was ok, the whole book was just ok. The writing was nothing fancy not a lot of figurative language or imagery. Some parts of the book were predictable and corny. I think the thing I liked the best was the ending of the book and how I didn’t see it coming. Sadly, this book has also been kicked off and will not get the ‘rose’. I hope you’ve enjoyed this post, you’ve just been reviewed
