Clube de Sangue - Charlaine Harris

Comecei a ler este livro no dia 28 de Novembro e acabei hoje dia 8 de Dezembro.



O que poderei eu dizer sobre um livro de vampiros? É um tema que eu gosto bastante, que está agora muito em voga
Tenho pena de começar esta saga só no terceiro volume, pois muitas coisas devem de ter acontecido, nos dois volumes anteriores.
Mas o enredo faz-me lembrar uma história de vampiros/lobisomens/humanos que anda agora a circular pelas salas de cinema.
Uma humana que não têm medo de vampiros e que no decorrer da história até encontra um lobisomem que até é capaz de se apaixonar por ele.
Este volume têm bastante acção, sangue, lutas e traições e a forma como a escritora conta a história da perspectiva da única humana com poderes telepáticos é muito engraçado e por vezes cómico. Até parece que nos podia acontecer a qualquer um de nós mortais.


Charlaine Harris (born November 25, 1951 in Tunica, Mississippi) is a New York Times bestselling author who has been writing mysteries for over twenty years. She was born and raised in the Mississippi River Delta area of the United States. She now lives in southern Arkansas with her husband, and three children.[1] Though her early works consisted largely of poems about ghosts and, later, teenage angst, she began writing plays when she attended Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee. She began to write books a few years later.



After publishing two stand-alone mysteries, Harris began the lighthearted Aurora Teagarden books with Real Murders, a Best Novel 1990 nomination for the Agatha Awards. Harris wrote several books in the series before the mid-1990s when she began branching out into other works. She did not resume the series until 1999, with the exception of one short story in a Murder, She Wrote anthology titled, "Murder, They Wrote."

In 1996, she released the first in the Shakespeare series, set in rural Arkansas. The fifth book in the series, Shakespeare's Counselor, was printed in fall 2001, followed by the short story "Dead Giveaway" published in the Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine in December of the same year. Harris has stated on her website that she has finished with the series.

After Shakespeare, Harris created The Southern Vampire Mysteries series about a telepathic waitress named Sookie Stackhouse who works in a northern Louisiana bar. The first book in the series, Dead Until Dark, won the Anthony Award for Best Paperback Mystery in 2001. Each book follows Sookie as she tries to solve mysteries involving vampires, werewolves, and other supernatural creatures. The series has been released in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Spain, Greece, Germany, France, Argentina, Poland, Brazil, Great Britain, Ireland, Mexico, Norway and Sweden.

Sookie Stackhouse has proven to be so popular that Alan Ball, creator of the HBO television series Six Feet Under, announced he would undertake the production of a new HBO series based upon The Southern Vampire Mysteries.[2] He also wrote and directed the pilot episode for the series, True Blood, which premiered on September 7, 2008 on HBO.

October 2005 marked the debut of Harris's new series entitled The Harper Connelly Mysteries, with the release of Grave Sight. The series is told by a young woman named Harper Connelly, who after being struck by lightning, is able to locate dead bodies and determine their cause of death.

Professionally, Harris is a member of the Mystery Writers of America and the American Crime Writers League. She is a member of the board of Sisters in Crime, and alternates with Joan Hess as president of the Arkansas Mystery Writers Alliance. Personally, Harris is married and the mother of three teenagers. A former weightlifter and karate student,[3] she is an avid reader and cinemaphile. Harris resides in Magnolia, Arkansas, where she is the senior warden of St. James Episcopal Church.[4]
