I mentioned before that I like both the show and the book series as separate entities. I watched the show before I started reading the books. As soon as I started reading them, I had completely different pictures in my mind of each character. When I read the books, I don't picture Sookie as Anna Paquin or Eric as Alexander Skarsgard.
Not sure if that makes any sense to anybody but me... lol!
I actually absolutely agree with you! You put it very nicely.
None of the characters i see on the show are the same way i see them in the books. I just find it interesting to see who other people see as each character. I think the closest to book/show characters are Sam and Alcide. Both of those i think were picked perfectly, but that's my opinion.
