Review: Deadlocked by Charlaine Harris

Deadlocked by Charlaine Harris (Sookie Stackhouse #12 )

library copy

Synopsis from Goodreads
With Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), in town, it’s the worst possible time for a body to show up in Eric Northman’s front yard—especially the body of a woman whose blood he just drank.
Now, it’s up to Sookie and Bill, the official Area Five investigator, to solve the murder. Sookie thinks that, at least this time, the dead girl’s fate has nothing to do with her. But she is wrong. She has an enemy, one far more devious than she would ever suspect, who’s out to make Sookie’s world come crashing down.

 Aww, this book made me sad and slightly nostalgic, but at the same time I was feeling good reading it and enjoying Bon Temps. It was like visiting old friends...

It's all coming to an end, folks. Next book is the last one, and it feels right. Charlaine Harris finishes it on a high note and that's how it should be with any good series.

Deadlocked is slowly tying loose ends at a very leisured pace. You get to spend time with Sookie feeling bittersweet about all her friends and family and melancholic about her own life.

Her mood is resolved, she is feeling in her gut that Eric and herself are not meant to be, and she is deeply upset that she can't have a normal life. She is fragile, slightly unhinged, and doesn't trust people easily. Even her closest and dearest seem to betray her in the end...

I was feeling deeply sorry for her, surrounded by greed and ambition of supernaturals and losing her patience for their crap, and at the same time I'm very much afraid that Sookie won't have her happy ending. I just don't see how?..

Despite plenty of lacklustre reviews, this is a very good book, it's not dramatic, but emotional and grown up. I love Miss Stackhouse, poor sweet Sam and even Eric who lost most of his wicked charm since the beginning of his relationship with Sookie, and I'll be profoundly sorry to say my goodbyes to them all.

Печальная вышла книга, очень взрослая и достаточно философская.

Мне очень она понравилась, и в то же время я буду скучать по Суки Стакхаус и Бон Тампс, когда мне придётся с ними попрощаться в следующей книге серии, которая станет последней.

Чувствуется, что серия потихоньку заканчивает все сюжетные линии друзей, родственников, любимых и врагов мисс Стакхаус, и в то же время она сама маланхолична, эмоционально хрупка и очень печальна в этой книге.

Суки понимает, что её отношения с Эриком подходят к их логическому концу и сожалеет, что у неё не выходит вести нормальную жизнь; она опять испытывает боль предательства от тех, кто ей близки и дороги... Она даже составляет завещание на свой день рождения. Вот в таком она депрессивном настроении.

Я боюсь за неё как характер, потому как не вижу возможность хэппи энда. Бедная, бедная девочка! И бедняга Сэм, которому опять достаётся, и сволочь Эрик, который всё больше отдаляется от Суки...

Читайте, это хорошая книга. У меня было такое впечатление, что я встретилась со старыми друзьями по её прочтении. И радостно и горько.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
