About All Together Dead:
Louisiana cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse has her hands full dealing with every sort of undead and paranormal creature imaginable. And after being betrayed by her longtime vampire love, Sookie must not only deal with a new man in her life-the shapeshifter Quinn-but also contend with the long-planned vampire summit.

The summit is a tense situation. The vampire queen of Louisiana is in a precarious position, her power base weakened by hurricane damage to New Orleans. And there are some vamps who would like to finish what nature started. Soon, Sookie must decide what side she'll stand with. And her choice may mean the difference between survival and all-out catastrophe.

My Thoughts:
Seeing that this is book 7 in the series, I've said most of what I can say about this book in my reviews of previous books plus the TV show adaptation of this series, True Blood. So what is different with this book then? Not much really, other than satisfying more Sookie Stackhouse craving. Feed the urban fantasy addiction. And fill in the gaps to better understand subsequent books in this series. However, one thing remains the same, if not more prominent... it is really annoying when Sookie plunges headlong so purposefully, intently and willfully into trouble and then wonder and wail why she is in such dire predicaments. WTF!! However, I still find that this series is addictive. I just wish that Sookie is not so stupid... This particular installment in the Sookie Stackhouse series is so irritating that I'd give it an overall rating of 2 out of 5. If the world building wasn't so good, I'd give it a one.

Empirical Evaluation:
Story Telling Quality = 1.5
World Building = 5
Character Development = 1
Plot = 1.5
Pace = N/A
Story Itself = 1.5
Ending = 2

Overall Rating: 2 out of 5 cherries
