I have never watched the TV version before, so I can't compare it with the book. But this audiobook kept me entertained from the beginning to the end. I read so many negative reviews about this audiobook that I'd struggled whether to buy it for a long time. It turned out to be much better than I had expected. I saw (and you will too) so much of this book's shadow in Twilight. I swear some of the scenes are almost exactly the same. You'll have to say it's original because it was written twenty years ago. Anyway, just buy it if you love reading paranormal romance.

Well read

Well read by the actress. The book is sort of interesting, though it is completely different from the TV show, the reason I got interested in the first place. Much, much better than the Twilight saga, there's really no comparison between the two: The Vampire Diaries is more compelling, better written and overall more agreeable.

Vampires delight

Absolutely fantastic, a gripping tale of a love triangle but also incorporates action and suspense. I would highly recommend all the books in this series and definitely read the books before you watch the series.

On par with the tv show

If you could sum up The Vampire Diaries, Book 1 in three words, what would they be?

Just as good

Who was your favorite character and why?

Bonnie, because she seemed nicer than tv bonnie

Which character – as performed by Rebecca Mozo – was your favourite?

All of them. You could tell between the characters who is who. Even with male characters. Would like to hear her narrations again.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Stefan saved Elena and took her to his house.

Any additional comments?

It is VERY different from the show. Of course this book came out waayy before. But I like both the show and this book. I like the different characters and the storylines. Elena seemed to fall in love fast but you do that in real life.I like how Stefan is written in the book more than the show. I have read the books up until they were re done by aubrey. Dont know if I will purchase them because L.J Smith's work is better and much less predictable.
