"The Weres, as in werewolves and shape-shifters, have come out of the closet, and telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse soon discovers what the effect of that may be on the human world of Bon Temps, Louisiana. Narrator Johanna Parker portrays Sookie with a Southern accent that gives the story added credibility and gives dimension to its setting. Her narration is both light and fun while transitioning well to the dark and scary bits. This series can now be experienced as a print book, an audiobook, and a television show. Parker's performance makes this audio version a strong contender for being the most satisfying of the three formats. L.P. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
