The best Book Living Dead in Dallas DNF 47%I’m done with this series. The first book was weird enough as it is, but this one is just too much for me. Nothing makes sense and at 47%, I still haven’t found a plot. Here’s a list of things I have a problem with:1. This series is weird.2. Everyone treats Sookie as if she is Bill’s possession. Even worse: a pet.3. Bill goes along with it.4. So does Sookie.5. Bill is one of the worst boyfriends I have ever met. He is boring, possessive and never fails to get Sookie into trouble. Plus, he only cares about sleeping with Sookie and drinking her blood (which automatically leads to sleeping with Sookie).6. Sookie lets him. Sookie in Book #1: “Hi. I’m Sookie. I’m a virgin.” Sookie in Book #2: “Sexsexsexsexsex.” This is not even an exaggeration. Here is a lovely quote from Miss Sookie Stackhouse:“If we could just get out of here right now, I promised myself I’d never come back. I’d give up this detecting for the vampires, I’d just tend bar and sleep with Bill.”Do I even need to elaborate on how wrong this is? Because to Sookie, a good life is being a waitress and sleeping with her dead boyfriend. Amazing how ignorant some people can be.7. Bill doesn’t give his girlfriend small presents like flowers or chocolates. He just says, “The vampires want my woman well. So now I own a clothing shop. Go buy some clothes with my card.”8. Sookie won’t stop talking about her bloody boobs.9. Neither will anyone else. They all lust after her curvaceous curves.10. Another guy kisses her. No big deal.11. She sticks her keys in her thong.It’s one thing to let your boyfriend decide that you can’t carry around a purse. But then I’d put the keys in my bra, not in my bloody thong. That just cannot be comfortable. And then he’s all pervy about it, like, “Oh why don’t you get your keys out.”Real charmer, that Bill. Why don’t you go suck on some roadkill.
