I should explain the quotes, right? Here’s the thing. As I’ve read the Sookie Stackhouse books, I began to notice a pattern. No, actually a few patterns.
- The clothes suck.
- Everyone dresses the same.
- There is a disproportionate amount of brown or otherwise neutral-tone clothes (Claudine is a rare exception).
- Everyone will wear a silk T-shirt* at some point in the series. It will probably be brown.
- I have very little idea how book!Bill dresses. Charlaine Harris rarely describes his clothes. This makes me curious, which is strange, however, because I generally do not like Beel.
*Where are they getting these “silk T-shirts”? I had no idea of their existence prior to reading this series.
I’ve noticed these things, too. I had a fake silk shirt once, but I’ve never seen a silk shirt. Or at least, I’ve never seen one I could actually afford.
