Journal Entry 1 by Wasserseele from Hahnstätten, Rheinland-Pfalz Germany on Sunday, October 29, 2006
Cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse is on a streak of bad luck. First, her coworker is murdered and no one seems to care. Then she's face-to-face with a beastly creature that gives her a peinful and poisonous lashing. Enter the vampires, who graciously suck the poison from her veins (like they didn't enjoy it).
Point is, they saved her life. So when one of the bloodsuckers asks for a favor, she complies. And soon, Sookie's in dallas using her telepathic skills to search for a missing vampire. She's supposed to interview certain humans involved. There's just one condition: The vampires must promise to behave - and let the humans go unharmed. Easier said than done. All it takes is one delicious blonde and one small mistake for things to turn deadly ...

Second of the Southern Vampire Novels: Nice read!
Though I have to admit that I like Bill the less the more I read about him. Isn't he sort of an arrogant deadhead (*har har*) amongst the other supes? Sam or Eric could be more fun, don't you agree? ;-)

Journal Entry 3 by ekaterin4luv from Nürnberg, Bayern Germany on Friday, December 08, 2006
I'm really looking forward to it.

Journal Entry 4 by ekaterin4luv from Nürnberg, Bayern Germany on Monday, March 12, 2007
Sometimes a follow up is just a lukewarm leftover from the first part. But not this time, I really enjoyed Living Dead in Dallas and I'm looking forward to the next installment in this series.
Sookie has gained self-confidence and she seems to be gaining status in her own right, which promises entertainment and clashes with Bill in the future.
Eric sounds like a cool guy, but I'm not really sure he's good boyfriend material. But a girl can dream, right?

Arrived today, safe and sound, there's only one other book I have to finish before I can start with this.

Journal Entry 6 by SaschaBWk from Hamburg - Barmbek, Hamburg Germany on Saturday, March 31, 2007
Even more fun than the first volume. And I have to agree about Bill, he is not very promising for the future. But there are better (or worse?) possibilities quite close at hand.
I really like that Charlaine Harris has created a belivable social and political background with a lot of potetial for future storys without giving up on the funnier and more personal aspects. I#m looking forward to the next part.

Journal Entry 7 by belly-dancer from Edemissen, Niedersachsen Germany on Tuesday, April 10, 2007
Arrived today. I'll enjoy it on my 5:45 hour train ride from Braunschweig to Flensburg this weekend!

Journal Entry 8 by wingdelfinnettiwing from Siegen, Nordrhein-Westfalen Germany on Tuesday, May 08, 2007
The book arrived today at the container freight station and I collected it from there (along with another book). Thanks for the Ray and sending of the book! The only problem now is that this is part two and it arrived ahead of part one - can it be read without knowlege of the previous book? I will read the other two rings that arrived yesterday and today and see if part one has arrived by then....


Edith 22.05.2007:
Part one arrived shortly after part two and I could read them in correct order. Part two was even better than part one in my oppinion. Still no real details about Bills past but some realy interesting bits about the vampires organisation structure. The shape shifters have some role to play too. A couple of interesting new faces turn up. I´m realy interested in how this will continue.

Journal Entry 9 by wingdelfinnettiwing from Siegen, Nordrhein-Westfalen Germany on Friday, June 01, 2007
In company of part one on it´s way to baltruma since yesterday. Thanks a lot for the very captivating bookring. I can´t wait to find out what happens next.

Journal Entry 10 by baltruma from Uplengen, Niedersachsen Germany on Sunday, June 17, 2007
Das hat definitives Suchtpotential! Vor allem, weil die Autorin ein Fan der griechischen Mythologie zu sein scheint. Quite entertaining!

Journal Entry 11 by Tiamat-muc from München, Bayern Germany on Friday, June 22, 2007
Vampire flatterten heute in meinen Briefkasten - 2 an der Zahl. Leider müssen sie es sich erstmal in der für sie vorbereiteten Höhle gemütlich machen. Je nachdem, ob ich Zeit und Muße finde, sie neben der Lernerei zu lesen, oder ob ich sie lieber Blutstropfen für Blutstropfen genießen will :-)

Journal Entry 12 by Tiamat-muc from München, Bayern Germany on Sunday, July 08, 2007
Ok, second book - and I really beginn to love the stories. But I can't understand why the most of you don't like Bill. Sure, he's the permanent relationship guy (means the one with whom you have to argue about everyday life and relationship matters) while Eric would be the smart and funny parttime lover - and for this fact more interesting. But he seems to love her - and the fact that he's so domineering surely comes about because he's that much older and conservative (I mean I once had a boyfriend who didn't wanted me to wear red sweaters - and he was only 3 years older than me...). Also he's her first one, so let her get more self-confident and she will spread her wings

<= By the way: I laughed myself nearly sick by the imagination of Erics bitchy outfit ;-)))

@Wasserseele: you can cancel my reservation for book 3, because I will by them by myself now (angefixt!)

And still: read Nancy A. Collins! You will really really love - no: ADORE - her

Ist der Tee für mich? - Lecker!

Journal Entry 15 by literaturschock from Schefflenz, Baden-Württemberg Germany on Wednesday, August 01, 2007
Sookie ist hier gut gelandet und ich bin schon sehr gespannt auf ihre Abenteuer!

Journal Entry 16 by literaturschock from Schefflenz, Baden-Württemberg Germany on Saturday, January 26, 2008
Sorry, dass es so lange gedauert hat! Da mir Teil eins so gut gefallen hat und er sich super lesen ließ für mich Englischniete, habe ich mich entschieden, mir die Teile selbst zu kaufen. Deshalb geht Teil zwei von mir ungelesen an die nächste Station, sobald ich die Adresse habe.

Journal Entry 17 by UbSiA from Norderstedt, Schleswig-Holstein Germany on Monday, February 04, 2008
Found this BookRing in the mail today and I'm looking forward to reading it.

14/02/2008: Finished this 'Sookie' story today and enjoyed it as much as the first part. Will send this one and Dead Until Dark on to Schneefee today.

Journal Entry 18 by Schneefee from Hagen, Nordrhein-Westfalen Germany on Monday, February 18, 2008
found Sookie in my Mailbox when I returned from the Eifel.
Oh no, I'm currently reading a realy good book, and now I got two others that I'd like to start immediately... dramas of a bookcrosser :-/

Journal Entry 19 by Schneefee from Hagen, Nordrhein-Westfalen Germany on Thursday, August 28, 2008
started in Oban and finished last night in Dortmund I enjoyed this book even more than the first one (and yep - Sookie definitely should prefer Sam to Bill). Fortunately #3 is already here.

Journal Entry 20 by susiuni from Leipzig, Sachsen Germany on Saturday, September 20, 2008
Da kam ich gestern nach Hause und was lag auf meinem Tisch? Ein blauer Zettel von der Post, das ich erst am Folgetag 2 Büchersendungen in Empfang nehmen könnte.
Heute morgen bin ich gleich zur Post gestürzt. Zum einen hatte ich meine lang ersehnte Drei Engel für Charlie (Season2) DVD-Box in der Hand. Und zum anderen einen roten großen Umschlag mit der Aufschrift „Vampire auf Reisen“. Zu Hause habe ich dann die Bücher befreit. 3 Stück warten nun darauf von mir gelesen zu werden um die Welt weiter erkunden zu dürfen.

Vielen lieben Dank fürs Zusenden.

Journal Entry 21 by susiuni from Leipzig, Sachsen Germany on Friday, October 10, 2008
I had had a lot of fun while reading. The plot is sometimes really cruel.
For my taste there were to mucgh different supes. I found the idea of joining the Fellowship interesting. Vampires commiting suicide was a really sad and fascinating part of the story. I think Sam and Sookie would be a lovely couple. Maybe he´s a better choice than Bill? […]
After finishing the book I really would like have to taste a piece of old Mrs. Bellefleur´s cake :)

book arrived well today, hope I can start reading soon

auf dem Weg zur nächsten Station

Journal Entry 24 by Noria from Gehrden, Niedersachsen Germany on Saturday, November 22, 2008
Heute ist das Buch angekommen und ich werd Anfang nächster Woche damit beginnen.

Ich hab schon viel Gutes über die Bücher gehört und bin entsprechend gespannt. :)

Journal Entry 25 by Noria from Gehrden, Niedersachsen Germany on Thursday, December 04, 2008
I agree with everyone else that the second book is really even more entertaining than the first one. It's good to explore this special "univers" even more and I'm looking forward to how the shapeshifters will be involved later.

Besides, my favourite characters so far are Eric, Sam and Sookie.
