Awful

The person who read this ruined the experience. Accents were terrible. Made listening unbearable. Fix this.

Loved it!

Once I was able to convince myself that this book had nothing to do with the TV series, I was able to truly enjoy it. The TV series has the same name and some of the characters names are the same as the books but that is where the resemblance ends. This book was fast-paced, thrilling, and hard to put down. I will definitely be getting the next book!

Good

In this second book the author introduced us to Damon, Stefan's older brother, who is charmed by the futile Elena. The story revolves around this love triangle. This is basically it.

enjoyed in one night.

better than the first book, but still a bit juvenile. a friend says they get better as you go, so I will try the next one.

I am at the 4th book but so far I like this more

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Vampire Diaries, Book 2?

Elena at her funeral. The scene was intense and creepy

Have you listened to any of Rebecca Mozo’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

She is amazing!

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

.

Any additional comments?

This is a half book.

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!
