did not like it
Read in March, 2009

I was looking forward to reading this because i have a soft spot in my heart for vampire novels--and was expecting a lot from it considering that they have a television series out based on these books--but i found the characters very shallow and one dimensional, and the plot was...lacking.

It felt like the book should have been longer, as if the book was actually a synopsis of a much better book that left out details about...just about everything. There is no insight into what the characters are thinking, no descriptions of scenes. Details of someone's life were only discussed immediately before it became relevant to the story. It just seemed very basic and very rushed.

If it wasn't for the (needless) sex scenes, it could be a children book.
