    This isn't a review of the book as it is a complaint to Apple Books. Several chapters are missing their last page. Fix it.

  • Horrible ending

    By Katstuart
    She just gave up. Don't waste your money or time. I've never finished a book or series before and ended up hating the main character. HBO did everyone a favor by abandoning the plots of this series.
  • Wrapping up the series shouldn't mean ending it abruptly with forced relationships and zero closure

    By Blinzy
    What a bummer. I really enjoyed this series and although I wasn't expecting and epic finale (10 quality books is good enough) I am pretty disappointed Sookie's tale ended in such an anticlimactic way. Did her and Eric even say goodbye to one another? Like at all? Anyway, what's done is done. I'll just pretend this book was never written and when I think of Sookie, I'll think of her in regards to the first ten books.
  • Could have been better

    By Arkadillo
    I was sorely disappointed with the ending of this series. It was better than the True Blood ending, but was still not what I expected. Spoiler. The last book was filled with bit characters that haven't been in the whole series. No Eric, and very little Pam and Bill. It turned into a book of shifters and fae. Not even a cameo from Bubba. The bad guys left alive all conveniently come together for a last stand against Sookie and lose (of course). So now she can live happily ever after, right? I doubt there is any reason to get After Dead. Just another way to get a few $ out of my pocket. Oh we'll, thanks for a mostly entertaining series! Just wish the last book would have stayed true to it.
  • A series wasted

    By Krd175
    I wish that I had never read this book. It ruined the entire series for me. I normally will reread a series that I like several times, but this series is dead to me now. It would have been better if she had never written it and let the series die with at big question mark. The plot is meandering and the ending is not believable. She drags in as many of the series characters as possible with no real contribution to the story line and yes I am upset with what she did with Sookie’s love interest. Not because I am so vested in one character, but because she spends the better part of series aiming Sookie at one guy and then at the last minute doing a 180 and leaving her with another. I like the character who Sookie ended up with, but I found it unbelievable. She basically dumped it on us without any real build up of the relationship. I am normally extreamily loyal to the authors I like. I seek out all of their older work. Short stories and other series, but I doubt I will ever read another Charlaine Harris book again.
  • Hate to see this series end

    By Ohyeahfun
    Awesome as always ! Sure hate to see the Sookie series ending. They were an absolute thrill ride from beginning to end. Thank You Charlaine !
  • What the crap!

    By Loved the Viking
    I'm writing because I loved all the books but it would have been better if sookie used the cluvial dor to turn Eric into a human or wish freyda away so Eric and sookie could live happy ever after. This ending left me really depressed.
  • Dead Ever After

    I loved it, but that's not who I was hoping Sookie would end up with.
  • Well Done

    By Begorgeous
    I don't understand why this book has gotten so many bad reviews. I am only giving it 4 stars because there are still some unanswered questions. Such as, there was no specific person that Sookie ended up with. It was hinted at and some people assume who it was, but there was no concrete decision. As in, she agreed to marry or married a specific person and they lived happily ever after, etc... I hope this will be answered in the follow up book. Some people argue that the style of writing was different, but I disagree. I made it a point to re-read some of the previous books to refresh my memory of the style of writing and the characters. The writing style is the same as previous books, and this book was just as entertaining. I feel that the characters behaved the way they would normally have behaved, and stayed true to themselves. I felt the the ending of Eric and Sookie was sad, being a huge Team Eric fan, but in all fairness, it ended well. There were two major issues in this relationship, and I believe they were given a proper discussion. Eric still provided for Sookie to show her his affection for her, and it's clear that they both still love each other on some level. Sometimes love itself is not enough, and that is shown here. Don't judge a book based solely on what bad things other people have said about it. Read it for yourself and judge based on your own opinion. I'm glad I did. This book is a good read and Charlaine did a wonderful job of wrapping it up, although, there are some questions that still haven't been answered.
