this book did nothing for me, it was like reading the script for the vampire diaires show, alot of the parts in the book were nearly direct scenes from the show itself - the scene were damon and stefan are trying to save a muzzled katherine and are shot by their own father - this has never been told in the books. Also all the stuff to do with jothathon gilbert and the gilbert device and the tomb that was created in the show was in this book - and the characters pearl and anna have never been mentioned in the oroginal books before but they were created for the show and now show up in this book :S i mean in the books katherine killed 'herself' so that damon and stefan would stop fighting over her - and damon and stefan killed eachother over their upset of katherines 'suicide.' What really pissed me off is that they decribe katherine to have dark eyes and dark curls ??? :S they are describing katherine from the vd show and not the katherine from the original books who had blue eyes and blonde hair, this furthur adds to my suspicion that the book was not written by l.j. herself as she would not change the appearance of a character that she created and she would not change all the backstory they she wrote herself. The book does not actually say that it is written by her - this book was written by someone else and looks like a quick and easy way to get money by fans of the books/show.
