Review by Eilantha_Le_Fay
I loved this book. Since I’m just waiting to receive the next Sookie book on my mail, it was so good to read this recap of the previous books. It wasn’t boring at all! It made me remember so many details that I couldn’t possibly recall otherwise. As these books are so amazing, I usually don’t put them down until I finish them, which makes it harder to remember some details afterwards (also because it’s such a rich world!).The secret conversations between Bill and Eric are awesome (I’m repeating myself but I can’t put things otherwise). They made me laugh and bite my nails and giggle.The interview with Alan Ball was also helpful in understanding how and why TV series are the way they are. Most fans kept asking some variations of «why did you do this to our characters?», and it was fun to read how Alan dodged some of the "accusations".The recipes!!! I can’t wait to cook them! I bet they’re all so very tasty (though not so healthy…).In the end there’s an encyclopedia referring to all the characters and places in the books and short stories as well. Very handy.In sum: great useful book, and I’m so glad it was written!
