A fun quick read. Much has been changed for the TV series. Books are always better.

I started watching the series first. I wanted to know the nature of the vampires so I got the books because I couldn't wait for the show to tell me. I have to say I like the characters in the show better than on page. Elena is very self centered. As time goes on I like the tv series better. But this is an easy read and you are left wanting more.

I admittedly only read the first 2 chapters of this book. I started watching the series on TV before I found out about the books. Let's just say the TV series is VERY loosely based on the books. After a few chapters of the details not matching up I gave up and lost interest.

If you haven't started the TV series, try the books first. I think I ruined any chance I had of enjoying this series. (Wish I could write a review without giving this one a star rating.)
