There are a few similarities to the TV show. Mainly names and that's about it. ( )

After my buzz over the "Twilight" series, I've been obsessing over vampires. I've even started watching 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' on DVD because I totally missed out, and what a blast I'm having! Anyway, this book reads like a soap opera. Can someone shout MELODRAMA! Yeah, I know it's a YA book, but so was "Twilight". It wasn't awful, but it's nowhere near compelling as "Twilight" had been. Can I say "Twilight" again? Maybe the timing was bad, I mean... I JUST finished "Twilight"! There, I said it again!! Did I mention I was obsessing? ( )

Was so pleased that these were re-released not long before the series started. I originally read these in junior high and fell in love. Elena is the perfect bitch but I found her impossible not to like (so many heroines in YA books at the time were outcasts). Stefan is fairly vanilla but nonetheless enigmatic. Damons is ... Damon, a perfect bad boy who doesn't lose his nerve when it comes to being bad.

Of the two books The Struggle is my favourite because they pit brother versus brother. Great fun to read the first time around and just as fun to read the second time (and probably third and fourth times.) ( )

Esto es cómico, le puse tres estrellas en el 2012 pero ni me acuerdo de haberlos leído.



El primero si recuerdo más o menos, hace mil años, pero de ahí en más, se me escapa... ( )
