Great book! Great characters! Awesome adventures! I’m so torn between Stefan and Damon. It’s weird. In the books I’m more pro-Stefan but the tv show has me pro-Damon. I mean c’mon… who doesn’t like a little “bad guy”? He’s awesome. I love Stefan too, but he’s just not as dangerous as Damon, which I think is what I’m drawn to.
I can’t imagine ever leaving Stefan though. He completely would not deserve that but Damon also deserves to be loved. In the book, I’m kinda hoping that Bonnie gets him. In the tv show? I’m routing that Elena will get him.
I shouldn’t compare the two though. They seem to be going in completely different directions and the tv show is missing a very important character. One of Elena’s best friends no less!
