    "Not a fan of the narrator"

    I like the book and the characters. I think it's a fun story. What I did not like was the narrator. I was not a fan of her voices, especially for Stefan and Damon. Maybe because I am tainted by the vampire diaries show.

    Would you listen to The Vampire Diaries, Book 2 again? Why?

    Maybe. I enjoy rereading books as it builds my comprehension and I tend to pay attention to piece that I may have missed previously.

    To be honest I am on book 4 now so it's hard to remember the best part because they have become one big story. I enjoy Damien as he is one of those bad boys with the heart of gold types


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

    Voice wise Bonnie.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No.

    I would listen to it again in order to follow the story since it's a continuation of the first book & leads on to the third

    Old story in modern day setting, the sense of nostalgia, romance & danger

    She's not bad as narrator, but she's not overly brilliant either


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Another great edition to the story so far"

    This series keeps you on the edge of your seat wanting to read and read. The only thing that i don't really like is the Narrator. She does a good job but i just don't like her voice. Just me.

    "The Vampire Diaries, Book 2: The Struggle"

    I watch the weekly show of the Vampire Diaries and am HOOKED!. It was fun listening to how different the characters are in the book verses the show. It was a good listen. I plan to continue listening to the rest of the book series.

    "Love the dynamics"

    I really want more Elena /Damon interaction. The narrator is pretty good too. That is important when you listen to a series and i think they made the right choice in Rebecca Mozo.

    "Good grief"

    I agree with a previous reviewer, dull, dull, dull ! ! Book 1 piqued my interest, by the middle of book 2 I wanted the heroin to die as soon as possible lest she contaminate the human gene pool as one of stupidest most lack-lustre heroins of all time.

    I think that this is an almost unbearably bad book. The description of the lead character's thought processes and the minutiae of her actions reduce the books pace to that of drying paint. GOOD GRIEF ! The Sookie Stackouse or even Merit books are Umberto Eco by comparison.

    The TV series in this case is, in departing completely from the original story, doing us all a great favour.

    "Dull, dull, dull!!"

    Listened to the 1st book then this, after the 1st i was hoping it would improve, but it doesnt. They are nothing like the series, the narrator sounds like shes talking through a cloth on top of which she is very dull and the story never seems to get going. MY humble opinion stick with Sookie Stackhouse!!

    "Excellent!"

    I love these books. I started out watching the tv series and have been hooked ever since. The way the book is written makes you feel like you get to know the characters. The audio version is well narrated and makes the story much more exciting. I like the Italian accent used for Stefan and Damon that you don't get in the televised version. The story, as always, is exciting and fun. I would definitely recommend this series of books!

    "The saga continues"

    This book picks up where the first book ends. The characters face fear, danger and trial in this superb sequel. A must-buy for anyone who loved The Awakening. These books won't make much sense when read separately and out of order, so buy the whole lot and enjoy!
