I try hard to have no hopes about books when they become movies or tv shows. But I just love the Sookie Stackhouse series and I wanted to hold out hope that True Blood would magically be different than every other try out there.
Alas, as far as following the books and even the fun theme of the books, it’s a total fail. BUT, if I hadn’t read the books then it is great. I force myself to ignore the fact that it’s so completely different than the books and just enjoy. I was angry after the first season because they changed so much and didn’t have characters look anything like their descriptions in the book. But season 2 is SO different that I’m having an easier time.
