Why I read it: I bought the boxed set because I’m curious about urban fantasy, since I claim to have written one. The boy had already read the first two.
Bookmark: Bill for car brakes – front and back rotors and pads, $722.
Tastes Like Chicken: Laurel K. Hamilton.
What I Liked: The idea of telepathy as a disability, and how it has limited Sookie’s relationship and education, seem well thought-out. The small town atmosphere was well-created, and the voice was natural (first person).
Not so Much: Got confused occasionally. There were a lot of named characters.
Lesson: This isn’t urban fantasy. It takes place in rural Louisiana. Genre names are meaningless.
