    "Not new content"

    Despite this being released this year the content on the book is a good deal older. The chapter layout is as follows.

    Chapter 1 - Intro from Charlaine Harris
    Chapter 2 - 5 - Novella - Small Town Wedding - excellent short story
    Chapter 6 - 18 - Description of what happened and the timeline of each novel from Dead until Dark to Dead Reckoning (one book per chapter)
    Chapter 19 - Description of the short stories and where they happen in the story arc of the main books
    Chapter 20 - Sookie discusses the types of creatures she has met
    Chapter 21 - Alan Ball maker of True Blood answers questions from his fans (voiced by an actor)
    Chapter 22 - The works of Charlaine Harris - short descriptions of her body of work up to including the Sookie novels (as far as Dead and Gone). The Founder of Charlaine's fan club talks about how Charlaine's work has influenced her and what she enjoys about the fan club
    Chapter 23 - Charlaine Harris answers questions from her fans (voiced by an actor)

    I would have enjoyed the Q&As if these had been more recent and Charlaine and Alan were looking back on the whole Sookie storyline. As it is the content is badly dated and all the questions have since been resolved.

    If you think the price or the credit is worth it for a nice little novella that lasts just over three hours - then buying this is definitely worth it for you. If you were hoping for some new content or some additional perspectives on the Sookie-verse then this unlikely to suit.

    I considered returning it since two thirds of the book is of no interest to me - but decided to keep it because I enjoyed the novella and will likely read it again. The ratings reflect 5 stars for the novella but 1 star for the rest - thus bringing the score down. The performance of the novella was excellent but the interviews were very wooden - likely because the actors were reading out written not spoken answers but it was stilted nonetheless knocking a star off.

    "Would be a lot better to read yourself"

    It drawls through the timeline of each book and that's boring. The only good point is the short story right at the beginning.
