I have always refused to wacth the tv series cause it has changed it so much from the book. So anyone looking to get this book cause they love the tv show there's a couple of things you should know. In the book Elena is blonde hair blue eye'd and this is a vital part to the story so don't ask me why they cast a brunette, Mereadith is a very important charecter in all these books but doesn't make an appearence in the tv show and Bonnie is a pale curly red headed girl, not some gorgeous woman like Kat Graham. So if you can look past these differences then get the books.

These books are quite good.
But if you buy them expecting the story to be like the TV series, you are in for a surprise.
Some might find that disappointing, so just be aware of what you are buying.

I bought these books having watched the current 4 seasons of the T.V show, and so I was slightly worried that I had spoiled the books by having watched the show, but I still wanted to have read the books. When they arrived I started reading them, and they are a pretty good read, however they differ so much from the show that it's almost like reading a different title. I still enjoy the books though, and I was pleasantly surprised, because now I know that I have spoiled nothing by watching the show, and I can continue reading the books, knowing that I don't know what's coming.
