Recently, I’ve become interested in a vampire tv series called Tru Blood, only to discover that it was based off a bookseries I’d picked up a few years back.

The series is about a Louisiana waitress named Sookie who has a telepathic “disability” that makes her feel more comfortable with the vampires and supernatural creatures of the world than with her fellow humans. The books are a light-hearted read. The tv series… much heavier, even though many of the same things happen in both.

Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone else was into these series. I’d love to hear others’ thoughts about how the books differ from the show.
