Review: After Dead by Charlaine Harris

After DeadWith characters arranged alphabetically—from the Ancient Pythoness to Bethany Zanelli—bestselling author Charlaine Harris takes fans into the future of their favorite residents of Bon Temps and environs. You’ll learn how Michele and Jason’s marriage fared, what happened to Sookie’s cousin Hunter, and whether Tara and JB’s twins grew up to be solid citizens.

This coda provides the answers to your lingering questions—including details of Sookie’s own happily-ever-after…

The book will feature extensive interior art by acclaimed Sookie artist Lisa Desimini, including a Sookieverse Alphabet, color endpapers, and several full-page black and white interior illustrations.

I honestly wish you could give negative star ratings. After reading the final book, I knew I wouldn’t be too particularly fond of this “coda.” Of course, Charlaine Harris has managed to exceed my expectations and made an even worse book to end her series.

This book is so short I was able to read it in less than 15 minutes. Each page is dedicated to one character and some of the descriptions are down right ridiculous.

“John Quinn had many more adventures.” (I.E. Spin off)

“Hank Clearwater contracted gonorrhea.”

Even Jake Purifoy is mentioned, despite the fact it was common knowledge he died in Rhodes.

I was always one to be willing to give Harris the benefit of the doubt, but this is a waste of paper and space. I can only be thankful I didn’t pay for the ebook copy I read.

Since Harris couldn’t be bothered to ensure consistency and actually create something worth reading, then I won’t bother wasting any more time on this junk.
