True Blood Series Finale (Spoilers .. or Not)

Happy holidays!

The hubby and I spent the days after Christmas catching up on seasons six and seven of True Blood.

As many of you know, the HBO series is based on the Sookie Stackhouse book series by Charlaine Harris. If you like vampires, shapeshifters, werewolves, witches, fairies and cute sidekick humans, this is right up your dark alley!

I am not a big fan of spoilers because I prefer to experience movies and books without knowing what's coming. Therefore, all I'm going to say is that I am pleased with the way the show's writers closed the various story threads ... especially Sookie's. For me, as a writer, it was a logical ending for a character who never got anything she wanted. Maybe for a short time, yes, but in the long run, we feared Sookie would always have her happiness snatched away.

I'm still in the process of reading the books, which went in a different path from the HBO series. Some readers weren't pleased with this. I find it refreshing in a way. Sure, it would have been nice to see the exact world and storylines from the books. But then again, some books I prefer left to my imagination.

All in all, I definitely enjoyed the journey of True Blood and am sad to see it end.  In the words of the theme song, "When you came in, the air went out." True Blood, when you ended, it did the same thing.
