This was my least favorite Sookie installment thus far. I found Sookie to be terribly annoying in the book and I was craving either a different narrator or more distraction through entertaining characters. Yes there were a lot of characters in this installment, but largely they were just "there" and not very entertaining. I would like there to have been more Eric and Bill and less Sookie thoughts (many of which are stupid). I generally did not enjoy the Pack portions and felt they belonged perhaps in a different book.
