Publisher's Summary

Dead Ever After marked the end of the Sookie Stackhouse novels - a series that garnered millions of fans and spawned the hit HBO television show True Blood. It also stoked a hunger that will never die…a hunger to know what happened next. With characters arranged alphabetically - from the Ancient Pythoness to Bethany Zanelli - best-selling author Charlaine Harris takes fans into the future of their favorite residents of Bon Temps and environs. You’ll learn how Michele and Jason’s marriage fared, what happened to Sookie’s cousin Hunter, and whether Tara and JB’s twins grew up to be solid citizens. This coda provides the answers to your lingering questions - including details of Sookie’s own happily-ever-after…

    Story
    "Not more than one-liners for each Character"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I cannot imagine, big fans will want more and light fans will not care.


    What was most disappointing about Charlaine Harris’s story?

    It was pretty much one-line "endings" to each characters story. I was expecting more of an epilogue.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Johanna Parker?

    Oh yes.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    It sounded as though the narrator was even bored of the one-liners.

    "Doesn't work as an audiobook"
    Any additional comments?

    This book is best used as a companion book that you can open up in a physical form and scroll through the characters to find the one you want. It has been a while since I read the books in this series so the names of all but the main characters mean little to me without going back to the books, which I don't really care enough to do.
    Maybe I'm too cynical but I wonder whether the publishers are simply milking the series after it should have been dead and buried (pardon the pun) a while ago - I found the last 2 books very disappointing; they lacked the plot complexity and multiple threads of the earlier books.

    "Overpriced for what you are getting"

    This was not a good audiobook - it was like having an encyclopedia read out loud. Hard to follow or remember the information, though the information was interesting. I also guess I didn't look carefully at the length of the audiobook before I purchased it - I thought it would have 2 hours or so...it was only 47 minutes.

    Story
    "Glad I read the revues so I could prepare"
    If you could sum up After Dead in three words, what would they be?

    I'm really glad I read the 'bad' revues before getting this. I was able to go back and re-read all 13 books AGAIN so the characters would be fresh in my mind before getting this. It helped me to recall some of the less known characters that are the 'one liners' in this book. The main things I wanted to know was how things turned out for Jason, Sookie, Sam and Tara. I got what I wanted. <3 YAY!


    Would you recommend After Dead to your friends? Why or why not?

    For anyone who has been curious...yes - it does give closure!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It is short enough that it wasn't a problem to do! LOL


    Any additional comments?

    Make sure the characters from all of the books are fresh in your mind before getting this!

    Story
    "Not bad but ..."
    Would you try another book from Charlaine Harris and/or Johanna Parker?

    Probably not but that's mainly because I've already listened to most of the Sookie Stackhouse series.


    If you’ve listened to books by Charlaine Harris before, how does this one compare?

    This book was written like an encyclopedia (ie each character being a topic) rather than a set of short stories. It was interesting to hear was happened next to the characters - the brief approach was suitable for some (ie Jane Boathouse) but didn't necessarily do justice to others (ie Eric).


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Johanna Parker is by far my preferred narrator for the Sookie Stackhouse stories - it just doesn't sound quiet right listening to some of the other narrators given that Johanna's narrated all of the novels.

    "Nice finally"

    If you have read all of the Sookie Stackhouse books, you will enjoy this short story that brings closure to all of your favorite characters. If you have not read all of the Sookie Stackhouse books, this will not make any sense.

    "nice to know"

    It is always great to know what happened in a story book world you've been following from the beginning. The fates of these characters are true to life in that some are hopeful and some a tragic and some get just what they deserve.

    "Don't waste your time!!"
    What disappointed you about After Dead?

    Everything, except the narration.


    Has After Dead turned you off from other books in this genre?

    NO! But I am very disappointed in Charlaine Harris. The idea was good but needs a few more details...A LOT MORE DETAILS!!!


    What aspect of Johanna Parker’s performance would you have changed?

    Not a thing; wish she had more material to work with.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from After Dead?

    none


    Any additional comments?

    This should be an audible free listen!

    Story
    "Everyone Has an Ending"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Knowing the out come of the characters in the Sookie Stackhouse books provides some closer, for the most part. The problem I have with the telling of each person's ending, after the last Sookie novel, is that there are so many. One may not remember the characters. What I would change is this that Charlaine Harris, would write a reminder of who the character was. Perhaps reference the book the character was in, or what they did. Such as, "Jason, Sookie's Brother, and weir panther", or "Quinn, the weir tiger, an once Sookie's lover."


    What could Charlaine Harris have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    She could have given a book reference to where the characters came from. A better reminder of who the character was. Unless you are a super Sookie Stackhouse fan freak, it will be difficult to remember who's who.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were no scenes. However, the best ending for me was Sookies. Her wedding gift from Eric was nice too.


    Could you see After Dead being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I cannot see this as a movie, since this is more of a reference book.

    "OK"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I'm not sure it should even have been published, I don't feel it adds anything to the series of books whatsover.


    What will your next listen be?

    I may consider some of the other book series by Charlaine Harris....


    Do you think After Dead needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, the last book limped along really and this book was unnecessary. Unfortunately I think Charlaine Harris' fore for the story and the characters dimmed a little towards the end.

    "Not quite a story"
    Any additional comments?

    Don't be mistaken into thinking this is another Sookie story, it is merely a list of a large number of characters from the books detailing what happens to them after the end of the series. If you're a fan you will certainly enjoy these tidbits of information though, I certainly did.

    If you enjoy someone reading you the telephone directory, then this is the book for you, otherwise avoid
    Johanna Parker does a great job, as she has with most of this series, but there is only some much she can do with a list of names and descriptions.

    I was hoping for at least a mini story from the sookieverse, but alas no
