I've never read the book but I've watched the first couple episodes of the new TV show. I hope the book is better. The TV show is a carbon copy of Twilight. I'm serious, I've identified most of the main characters to a character in Twilight. I've pegged Edward, Bella, Alice, Mike, Charlie, Jake, Jessica, and James. And it's not just the characters but the plot line too. Like the diaries, in Twilight, CH added in the fact that Edward had hundreds of diaries. And in the last episode Stephen (aka Edward) gave Elena (aka Bella) Wuthering Heights, which just happened to be her favorite book. Imagine that
. And every episode starts out as a bad horror movie. I can't decide whether to make fun of it or watch it.
ahem, I'd like to point out the books were published in... 1993, I think, and Twilight was published 2000, maybe? So if anyone's stealing, it's Twilight. Humph.

Am I really seeing Damon reading Twilight?' I had to question my mom like fifteen times, making sure what I heard was correct. Then, I was like, 'That's tacky.'
I'm trying to stick it out until Stephen tells Elena he's a vampire. I'm hoping it'll pick up then. *knock on wood*
wait a sec. What? I'm having my friend (who introduced me to Twilight and VD and NW and DV, some of my absolute favourite books) to watch it for me to see if it gets better and if I should watch it again, and she didn't tell my anything! Humph.
And, I have to point out, I'm really mad that there isn't a Meredith and in the books there isn't such a thing as Jeremy! Kust Margaret! Gah, I hate the show.
btw, ali, It's Stefan, which is supposed
to be pronounced Steh-ahn. And Elena's Ee-lay-nah. And Bonnie's a short red-head with curls, who is absolutely adorable, and Matt I think looks like Finn from Glee, and Damon looks too old, and gr, they messed it up!
