I'm a bit biased, but I liked it just fine.

Well, I didn't really READ it, I looked at it. There's a beautiful picture of Stephen Moyer in the middle that I'm tempted to tear out and tape onto my wall right beside my bed. Oh wait. I'm not 15 - and my husband might have a problem with it, lol.

I bought this book because I love, love, LOVE the show -- and it promised episode synopses for the first two seasons. They're not that great, and the book reads a bit like a Tiger Beat production, but what the heck. Fan-grrrls can be in their 40s, ri

With the cultural phenomenon that is True Blood, it was inevitable that episode guides, companions, and compendiums would shortly follow. People tune in every week to witness the further adventures of Sookie Stackhouse and vampires, demons and werewolves (oh my!), and people seem to fall on either side of the fence with no in-betweeners: People either love it or hate it. Becca Wilcott, it seems, is one of the former, as her new book Truly Madly Deadly: The Unofficial True Blood Companion brings ...more

I was so excited to read the ARC of Truly, Madly, Deadly that I dived right in and forgot to stop. Fans of True Blood will delight in reading every imaginable tidbit of information on the series and the stars. Interviews with the author of the book series the show is based off of, Charlaine Harris and the writer for the TV show, Alan Ball add to all of the information you could ever want to know.

There is an episode by episode breakdown for the first two seasons, which includes things like “Pagin

I received this from Net Galley to look at before it is released in June. I love True Blood but I love the books even more so when it comes down to it I side with the "original" vision for the characters instead of Alan Ball's vision. I do think he has done a great job of sticking to the original character types and picking to expand the characters that are minor in the books. What does this have to do with this book? I love the idea of a companion compiled by talking to bloggers, viewers, etc. ...more

Lucky me - I start watching True Blood a few months ago, and then this book lands in my lap (courtesy of a CBC twitter contest).

What this book did, was show that I don't watch True Blood closely enough. Its a great "popcorn for smart people" show, but unless I am really paying attention, I miss way too much-guess I was "glamored" by all the sex and violence. Will fix how I watch this show.

If you are interested in the behind the scenes stuff, especially the social media (viral) element of this s

Don't judge a book by it's cover has never been so true. I got this book as a gag gift because I like the series so much. I devoured it. Despite the book's silly cover, this is a well-researched look at the series. Wilcott covered every angle imaginable. I liked that she looked at each episode's script and told us a bit about the writers. Wilcott is a true fan.

A well written historical documentation of vampires and our fascination with all of their different forms. With input from the biggest names in vampire literature and folklore, this is a great and entertaining read for the True Fan!

Just a sad substitute for the real books/show.

This book does true blood justice.
If you love true blood as much as I do I would suggest picking this book up. It only covers the first 2 seasons but it's amazing.
