True Blood or the Sookie Novels: Which Is Better?

This is really pretty good

Recently HBO launched the fourth season of the vampire series True Blood. In May, author Charlaine Harris published the 11th book in the Sookie Stackhouse series of novels on which the TV series is based, Dead Reckoning. Fans love to debate which is better, the television series or the books. Here’s my take.

Plotting: The books are richly plotted, with reversals and high-drama situations every few pages. The television series, however, has successfully added layers of complications and twists that make them even tighter and more entertaining. One example that comes to mind is Jason Stackhouse’s involvement with the Fellowship of the Sun Church in the second season, which made this plotline more satisfying. Point to True Blood.
