What to say. Everything was tied up neatly (some things a little too neatly), but with absolutely no joy. I have been living under a rock, and purposefully avoided any news about who Sookie ends up with. I re-read all of the 12 previous books, as well as the short stories that I had, in anticipation. And this book was, to me, a big let down.
I think I am even-keeled enough to not be pissed off because she didn't end up with my choice of love interest. But about 2/3's of the way through this book, I just got really sad. Bad sh*****t keeps happening to Sookie, and that's not how I hoped it would end.
She is a survivor, but in my opinion it's not really a happily ever after kind of story. And that sucks, because I really like Sookie.
