    I've read them all, and couple weeks til Shadow Souls, Volume 2 of the Return(also called Damon) series. The books are great. Elena is a good character, not the usual nice girl thing like the show. She's stuck-up and all that, Damon is so much more interesting, so if you thought Ian Somerhalder was great, the books will amaze you. The Fury is easily the best.

    The books are good.. a few cliches but still good, I am halfway through The return vol. 1


    The show however is crap compared to the books, I watched an episode or twoand could not watch anymore because it is just too different from the books.. The actresses who play Elena and Bonnie are all wrong, Jeremy does not exist in the books (at least not untillwhere I am up to) & I have looked the show up on the internet & I cant find the characters Meredith or Aunt Judith (but I may be wrong about that one).


    My advice to the writers.. if you are going to make a tv show based on a book, keep in line with the book!


    Okay rant over.. sorry bout that just needed to get it out lol

    seriously, GET OVER IT. this is the TV SHOW, NOT THE BOOK. did you not see Elena was brunete, not blonde? that's because the books & the show are COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. people, it's not that hard. how many times must we repeat it. they are both different elements. & i wish i read the books but if you keep repeating that they are amazing, THEN THE BOOKS ARE AMAZING like you say they are. leave the show alone & let the rest of the fans enjoy it. i love this show, don't disrespect it please.

    i completely agree and I HAVE read the books and yes they really are amazing but in my opinion so is the show, the books dont take away from its greatness at all imo.

    The show clearly is not following the books.

    I am glad! If the show turns Elena into a vampire, I am done! She's the heroine.
