I love Sookie. I always preorder Charlaine Harris' books when I know a new one is being released.To start, Sookie is a local barmaid who can "hear" other peoples thoughts proving the old adage "You never hear anything good about yourself by eavesdropping." Unfortunatley for Sookie she can't turn it off. That is until she meets Vampire Bill and finds a blessed silence that she had never known existed. Meeting Bill throws her into a new world where Sookie and her unique ability are in high demand.
