I love Charlaine Harris and I love her even more when she answers my questions. So when I finished the last episode of TRUE BLOOD,
WHAT THE FUDGE !?
I LOVED THE SERIES! I can read it again and again, and never get bored!
So WHY! WHY DID YOU CHANGE THE END!?
I asked the author..
And SHE ANSWERED –
Nishtha asked Charlaine Harris:
I am not a huge fan of TV series but True blood was quite interesting. I completed the last episode today and wasn’t satisfied with the end. The book told a different and far better ending. I was very glad when ….(well you know) Were you satisfied by the TV series end? Who is your favourite character when it comes to the TV series?

This answer contains spoilers…
The TV series really has to be considered as a separate entertainment event from the books. I think all the actors were very good; picking the right person for the right part is one of Alan Ball’s talents. The point at which the story ended on TV was somewhat the same as the point at which it ended in the books, kinda-sorta. Sookie was happy and happily matched with a human-ish guy. My ending had to have a little more drama, since I was drawing so many stories to a close.
Okay….Now that I think of it ..she is right.
Still I love the books more.
