Meet Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, in the first novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series that "blends the genres of romance, horror and adventure with stunning panache"(Diana Gabaldon). Laurell K. Hamilton's bestselling series has captured readers' wildest imaginations and addicted them to a seductive world where supernatural hungers collide with the desires of the human heart, starring a heroine like no other... Anita Blake is small, dark, and dangerous. Her turf is the city of St. Louis. Her job: re-animating the dead and killing the undead who take things too far. But when the city's most powerful vampire asks her to solve a series of vicious slayings, Anita must confront her greatest fear--her undeniable attraction to master vampire Jean-Claude, one of the creatures she is sworn to destroy...

I enjoyed listening to this book, but I didn't like it as much as some other similar series. I was missing something that would make me care.

The story was very cliche but I suppose that's to be expected as this book kind of started the paranormal romance genre?

I enjoyed the setting. I haven't read any book with animators (zombie risers) before and there might be some interesting consequences of vampires getting their rights recently in this world. ( )

I picked up this book because of a recommendation from someone who doesn’t do a lot of reading. Typically, vampire books aren’t my genre of choice, moreso because I haven’t done much work to immerse myself beyond film/tv such as Buffy (which I adored). There were a number of moments I really enjoyed in this book. I did not find myself particularly attached to any of the characters beyond appreciating some quippy humor from Anita.

I did think the story felt rushed, even with the story taking place over 3-4 days. There were times I had to confirm I didn’t miss a page because I wasn’t sure how we jumped from one location to another. I’m interested in Anita’s backstory and what lead her to who she is when the story starts. I also felt that the ending was wrapped up a little too quickly and I would have liked to see another 10 pages to handle the last few scenes.

I did expect substantially more romance for a book categorized under the romance genre. Other than some empathy, I didn’t find this book to have any actual romance in it (which could be a fault moreso of the bookseller than the story itself). ( )

It was ok. Got a bit confused with all the different vampires all up at the front there. Think I got them straight eventually. ( )

I had a friend who passed away who lived to read this series, as weird as this is going to sound I miss her and thought that since she loved them so much I would give this series another chance. My best friend is completely addicted to the series so yet another person pushing me to give them a shot.
One of the things that I loved right off the bat about this book was that all the old vampire clichés are there (they can't go out in the sun; silver, crosses, holy water burns them; sleeping on coffins; etc) More often than not, the author's try so hard to separate their vampires from the typical stereotypes we have associated with them, that they become too much like superhero's and less like what they really are; the living dead. Personally, I found that refreshing. Also, I thought this was a supernatural romance book so I was initially a little let down that there was not dirty stuff.......but I got over that pretty quick.

The ending, I thought, was a little lacking. There was a lot of drama that led up to the last fight scene, and when it came time for her to kill some vampires, I thought Anita took the easy way out. It was kind of a letdown and my actual reaction was, `Really? That's it?' The only other thing I didn't care too much for was the amount of unimportant side characters. There were a BUNCH of them and I found it a little confusing to keep up with everyone. Fortunately, a bunch of them die in this one so hopefully the next book won't have this same problem. (Sorry for the spoiler, but I don't think it gave anything away) Other than those two little things, I really enjoyed this book!! On to book two after work! ( )

Nonostante gli impegni universitari -che non sono pochi- mi sono concessa attimi di relax in compagnia di questo libro formidabile!
Era un sacco di tempo che volevo leggere qualcosa della Hamilton, e finalmente mi sono decisa a leggere questo primo episodio della saga di Anita Blake.
Beh, che dire, avendo già letto la saga della Anne Rice, forse sono un pochino di parte..

Ad ogni modo penso che superficialmente il libro possa essere giudicato come una "banale americanata" soprattutto per come hanno reso le battute della protagonista. A parte questo, che in ogni caso non è assolutamente una cosa che stona, forse mi sarebbe piaciuto che l'azione finale si snocciolasse più lentamente..invece mi sono trovata un principio lento e meticoloso ed una fine rapida e veloce!

Nonostante tutto ciò, mi è piaciuto! ( )
