I look forward to reading these Sookie Novels each year when they come out. No matter what is thrown at this girl she always prevails one way or another. It's the exciting moments in this series when I can jump up and down and say 'Yay Sookie!' I could not do that with this one. This book was ABSOLUTE MISERY... I can understand the title now. I felt like she PMS-ed the whole book. I felt so sorry for her. I don't know whether to applaud Harris for making this misery work out, or chastize her for not giving me the yay moment until the last page of the book.

Deadlocked ties some loose ends together, and I can see how Harris is preping the final book of the series. We see all of Sookie's past relationships and freinds move forward with thier lives in other directions. Though she fantasizes about how she wishes the best for everyone, we all know it never is perfect in the Sookie world.

I love the more routine life that we see in this book. It's something that hasn't really surfaced since book one. But after several chapters of the same thing I was bored and found myself skipping over her toast and coffee paragraphs.
