#ALERT: SPOILERish#

Liked it! I still find Sookie quite irritating but I really liked how in this story Eric plays a major role. In my point of view his character is the most interesting in the series and, even if in this book he went through a personality make-over, I loved him nonetheless!
I obviously liked very much how Sookie/Eric's relationship developed in the story even if it was only a temporary thing (I'm still hoping for the future books but I'm not that confident about it)and how Bill was pretty much ignored in his short appearance.

*marginal note* why every single guy that appears in the books ends in love with Sookie?! This time it was Calvin's turn as if Sam, Bill, Eric & Alcide weren't enough.

“Though I was standing in front of a mirror, I wasn't really seeing my reflection. I was seeing, very clearly, that—at the moment—I was all in the world that Eric could think of as his own. I had better not fail him.”

“...But also because I find I really do…" He paused, as if he were about to say something outrageous. "I find I have feelings for you."
"Oh," I said into his chest, sounding as astonished as Eric had(...)"Eric," I said, after a long pause, "I almost hate to say this, but I have feelings for you, too.”
Charlaine Harris, Dead to the World

“We could go back," he said. In the dome light of the car, his face looked hard as stone. "We could go back to your house. I can stay with you always. We can know each other's bodies in every way, night after night. I could love you." His nostrils flared, and he looked suddenly proud. "I could work. You would not be poor. I would help you."

"Sounds like a marriage," I said, trying to lighten the atmosphere. But my voice was too shaky.

"Yes," he said.”
Charlaine Harris, Dead to the World
