First let me say that this book was never on my radar to read let alone listen to on audio. I was looking for another audio book to borrow, but the one I wanted had a million and one holds on it so I searched for something readily available. Because I really enjoy TVD television show, I decided to give the book a try.
Sadly there wasn't much that I liked about the story. The fact that I couldn't stop myself from comparing it to the TV show, probably was part of the problem. I don't think I could enjoy the story as it is. I guess that's the problem with reading a book after watching it's counterpart, whether it's a TV show or movie.
What I was able to enjoy is the narrator. I liked the fact that she sort of sounds just like the actress that plays Elena on the TV show. Not exactly, but close. That was a pleasant surprise.
