it was amazing
bookshelves: so-bad-it-s-good

I gave this book five stars for being one of the most entertaining things I've ever read... it's so bad it's good. It gets off to an amazing start with Elena flying around, unable to read or write or talk, which is obviously what happens after you've been brought back to life. To make this better, Stefan is acting as her mother, and has suddenly developed disgusting pet-names for her, including "lovely love".

Elena gets better soon enough, but only after a sequence of very confusing things that are only a start to the weirdness in this book:

1. Elena's friends (Meredith, Bonnie, Stefan, Matt, Damon, and even Caroline) make a pact to be forever loyal to her.

2. Elena remeets her friends, does not recognize them, and kisses them all on the lips, much to Matt's pleasure and Caroline's intense disgust.

3. While driving through a forest, Matt, Meredith, and Bonnie are attacked by trees. Damon sits by and watches for a while, having very incoherent thoughts about going insane and being drunk. Eventually he saves them.

4. Bonnie has been injured by the trees so they take her home and Damon bathes her. Everyone hates on Damon. He calls Matt "Mutt". Elena flies around like an angel and is able to think Damon's name.

5. Damon goes to lounge around in the forest and mistakenly witnesses Elena and Stefan flying around and kissing (or something) and meets a fox spirit thing named Shinichi.

After this the plot breaks down even more, and I suggest you read it yourself to find out what happens. It's hilarious.
