90) From Dead to Worse by Charlaine Harris

Sookie Stackhouse is in trouble again and this time it is from all sides. Accidently mixed up in the were war and a vampire takeover she is also confronted with the fact that she has more family than her brother Jason. With the help of Sam and her room mate she manages to survive the newest problems life throws at her but in the end there are even more.

This book only came out last year and I remember being extremely happy that I was home ill when it arrived in the post. However while listening to this audiobook I really have to admit that I hardly remembered any of the story. Sure some bits and bobs seemed familiar but on a whole the story was practically new to me.

I loved every minute of this audiobook and have to say that the narrator is amazing. She really brings Sookie to life and I am longing to get my hands on more of these audios because they are such a joy to listen to. Also the format of the audio is great. No tracks as long as chapters but nice 3 to 5 minute tracks so you aren't forced to finish a chapter or pause in the middle of a chapter.

Now I am ready for the new Sookie Book which is due out next week. I am really glad I took this chance to revisit the previous book before the new release and I can't wait to see what happens to Sookie this time around.

Amber: If your narrator is Johanna Parker, then this is why I will now only listen to the series. I LOVE the narrator. She is absolutely perfect. I am slowly collecting them all as BOCDs to listen to over and over as the yearn arises. My DH loves listening to them, too, which is a plus. He's a fan of Eric, though not for the same reason as mine. = )
