This wasn't bad per se, just...meh.We see far too much unnecessary detail in Sookie's mundane world and we have for far too long. I don't care what colour her nails are. I don't care that she's emptying out her attic, and that certainly shouldn't be the opening scene of the novel. It would have been better just to start with the firebombing.This is the problem and has been for a while. The books are an easy read: too easy. The plot gets lost in the middle of Sookie's irrelevant, rambling thoughts, and the book could have been a third of the size it is without losing anything of worth.Worth a read? Certainly, if you've got this far. It won't take long. I can see how Charlaine Harris is beginning to wrap threads up for the final book, but I'm willing to bet that you could have condensed the end of this series into one book instead of drawing it out, and it would have been the better for it.
