The Southern Vampire Mysteries

Within the last two weeks, I've become really interested in the HBO series "True Blood" (they had the first two seasons on-demand, so it was easy to get brought up to speed.).  Anyway, I know the show is based on the series “The Southern Vampire Mysteries” – by Charlaine Harris, so I decided to head to my local B&N to check it out. 

 

It looks like it’d be an incredible read, but I’m disappointed to see that the book is told in the first person narrative as I’ve never been able to enjoy a book written in that style before…  I don’t know why… just a preference thing I guess.

 

A question I guess I have would be, are there any other people out there who also find themselves struggling to enjoy a book written in FPN, but was able to read this series and enjoy it?
