Do You Prefer the True Blood Books or TV Show?

The following post is from community member redgoblin, who posted it in the Southern Vampires group.

I have read all the books, and watched the first three episodes of True Blood, and was very disappointed in the casting and the portrayal of the main characters. Do others feel this way, or am I alone in this? Sookie, in the books, is pretty much described as a blonde bombshell type, which, as much as I love Anna Paquin as an actress, the whole gap in her front teeth just does not sit with the vision portrayed in the books of a woman men are falling all over themselves to date. Also, Tara is completely different in the books, she is a very minor character, and not as aggressive. The show is much more gratuitous in the sex department, especially when it comes to Jason. The scenes in the book do not go to that extreme, except when Sookie and her men are involved, and her readers are anticipating it! Anyway, new book coming out in May...cannot wait for that!
