...

Need to have more than one reader especially when a girl is talking or a different character not the same voice should be speaking the whole book

Wish I had read the reviews

What did you like best about The Vampire Diaries: Stefan's Diaries #1: Origins? What did you like least?

I wish I had known that this was based on the TV series. I love the TV series, don't get me wrong, but that's not what I was looking for. I was looking for more books by L.J. Smith in the Vampire Diaries series. I kinda feel deceived by Audible for listing them as L.J. Smith.

For the fans of the TV show

This is a nice listening for everyone who loves the tv show, not the novels. L. J. Smith's work is always very good: there are interesting characters and situations, descriptions are apt without being overwhelming, and the pacing is the right one for a vampire story.
The narration though is not a great one: the performer is almost always using the same tone, his portrayal of female characters is sometimes comical (Stefan's fiancee for instance) and overall he doesn't create the same sense of foreboding and despair that Rebecca Mozo provides in her performance of the main novels.
It's OK if you love the tv show, but for the original series reader it's rather disappointing (though not seriously so).

what i think about audibles narrater

What did you like best about The Vampire Diaries: Stefan's Diaries #1: Origins? What did you like least?

I absolutely. Love he story line how its during a very historic period I love he way they speak to one another and the romance. The main problem I had wig my audible book is the narratives voice himself he just didn't speak the words without the correct tone of voice!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Vampire Diaries: Stefan's Diaries #1: Origins?

Stefan, Damon, & Katherine playing football in front of their beautiful estate

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kevin T. Collins?

I don't know a name but can say someone who has an actual southeastern Virginia/Georgia accident or at least someone who can fake it enough to make it seem beleivable. Especially when a women speaks

Could you see The Vampire Diaries: Stefan's Diaries #1: Origins being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Hell yes. Stars should be who they are Nina dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian somerhaldler, katerina Graham Candice accolades ect

Any additional comments?

Please find and use a better narrative
