2.0 out of 5 stars Hard Work, 10 May 2010
This review is from: 5: Nightfall: Nightfall (The Vampire Diaries: The Return): 1/3 (Paperback)
I am not a huge fan of the Vampire Diaries books, I found them very juvenile with no character development, but liking Damon's character & also loving the Vampire Diaries TV series wanted to read the new book.

It was bizarre to say the least - Elena changed from being fine at end of Book 4 to being a child in Book 5. The book was not very visual, even with strecthing my imagination I had a hard time visualising exactly what the author was trying to put across. The characters ran from one disaster to another, appearing slightly dumb as they did so. There was a bizarre chapter in an imaginery house, & young girls acting provocatively which was just stomach churning. Bonnie, Meredith & Matt appear to be saints, who will do anything for their friend who consistently lets them down! Stefan has become this spineless simpering idiot, who with every usage of the phrase 'lovely love' made me gag & close my eyes in horror.

It was like a bizarre series of events randomly thrown together. Again no character development which was seriously needed. And people with teenagers should be warned, that I wouldn't suggest anyone under 16 reading this book - which is also interesting because it is not grown up enough for adults, but has too many mature themes for young teens.
However people will want to read this book, as it is a continuation of a series that many people are fond of and Damon is still a good character that I find interesting.

I guess it is worth a read for fans of the original books, but be warned - it is very strange & bizarre!! The TV series has much better character development & much better storylines, so perhaps best just to watch that.

I totally agree. I wish i had read this but i wasted moments of my life reading it. Seems like it's written by a teen with no idea how to tell a story. Random events that were over the top or underplayed. The characters were wooden and were not at all believable. What utter rubbish. i dd not know how such things end up being published...
