1.0 out of 5 stars The only time I have ever thought that the tv version is better than a book, 20 Jan 2011
This review is from: The Vampire Diaries: The Struggle (Kindle Edition)
I,ve watched vampire diaries avidly since the first episode and love all the characters . I,m not sure if because I,ve watched it first then read the book whether this clouds my judgements or not .
I find the characters in the book a bit odd. A bit weak with not enough background told to make a connection with.
I understand Elena s attraction to Stefan is powerful but only because she can have anyone she wants and she wants him because everyone else does!!! And she always gets what she wants. She seems big headed and selfish in this book and then before you know it ,in a matter of days he's drinking her blood and proposing marriage when they have only seen each other a handful of times or so it seems!!!!
There's no build up to this seemingly passionate love affair(yeah he tries to turn her down for half a paragraph!!!!!!! And then all of a sudden she's a vampire.
I don't hate the book I,m just disappointed as almost every book I,ve ever read has been a thousand times better than the movie (or tv series) think twilight and Harry potter!!!!
And I think that's what I expected in this book but sadly it didn't live up to my expectations .
I much prefer the depth and passion of the characters portrayed on the tv.
Sorry to everyone who loves theses books I know they have a huge following
