I love this book, different from the show but its amazing! I don't think people should be comparing it to Twilight and saying it's a copy because this book was first published in 1991.

By Lauri 03 Jan 2011 4

i found a startling amount of similarities between the vampire diaries and twilight but the vampire diares was compelling it was a good story. I'll be reading the rest of the series.
BUT i checked out the Show.....Not good, Its not anything like the book.
I'm a fan of the book, But not the show.

Started to read it and just couldn't put it down. It is a mix of Twilight and Trublood. Can't wait to read the Return

A beautiful vampire story. Love the caracter Elena. When you start to read it's impossible to stop. You always want more and more... :D I'm so excited to read the sequence.

This book or books!
Are so amazing... easy to read, it keeps you on your toes and never gives you a chance to stop guessing. Plus there are no unnecessary chapters in the book which you may find in others books.

Also I would say these books may be called a copy of the series twilight books but the vampire dairies were written years and years before the author even brought out twilight.

But yes if anyone likes cute vampire guys at a high school then I'd say give it a goo!
