As someone who has enjoyed this series, I was worried about the final book. I successfully stayed away from the spoilers posted before the book was even released (and post release). What I did know was people were pissed. The dedication is fitting: "This book is dedicated to the loyal readers....There isn't a way I could make all of you happy with the ending..."
Like most of the previous Sookie books, this one takes some time to get started. Strangely, I don't mind reading about Sookie doing mundane things (cooking, shaving her legs, etc) and there's plenty of that here. I loved how Mr C, Diantha, Quinn (who left abruptly), Barry, Bob, and Amelia all came to help Sookie. I thought it was nice the turn-out in the courtroom. Sookie had more support than she knew. Now Sookie's enemies are gone. My only issue is I thought the ending was too abrupt. I'm not surprised at the ending, this person has been present in the previous books and a good friend to Sookie.
(A bit of my own rant follows- read at your own risk!)
I am surprised at all the hate with this character though. Yes, I'm an Eric lover too, but come on, he hasn't behaved all the well in the last couple of books. And knowing that Sookie had never wanted to be turned and would like to be a mother, the ending that is, is much more fitting.
