Here it begins

This book is the start of a brilliant series. Dark and intense, the novel sucks the reader in from its opening sentence and doesn't let up. Sensitively written, with characters that leap to life the moment they come into being, The Awakening starts an emotional roller coaster that doesn't let up for the entire series. The cliffhanger ending for each book sets the scene up for the next and the series isn't finished yet. A must-listen for any lovers of teen vampire sagas.

What would have made The Vampire Diaries, Book 1 better?

Better character development, a likeable main character, a more developed writing style, a WAY better thought out relationship development - she told him she loved him the second time they spoke… just awful

Has The Vampire Diaries, Book 1 put you off other books in this genre?

There are definitely some great books in this genre and so I could never be put off it, but I'm not interested in this series at all

What three words best describe Rebecca Mozo’s voice?

was perfecty fine

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The voice actor did an ok job. And the flashbacks into the past were relatively interesting. Otherwise, I can't think of anything else that was redeeming

Any additional comments?

It was terrible. Awfully written and undeveloped story. There was clearly some thought behind it and the concept is perfectly good, with the brothers story and everything, but in practice it was was no where near good enough for the hype that this series has gotten. The TV series is 110% better because it managed to take the basics that the book presented and actually create something decent out of it, as the writer was not able to do in my opinion
