Great book, nice to listen to, have all books in collection, highly recommend, love that I can have someone read to me
I liked learning the back story of the Salvatore brothers but since I'd already read the other books, I was kinda bored w this series.
The only thing I really liked about this book was the narration. collins always does a wonderful job.
as far as story goes I thought it was shallow and useless. I did not like how Stephan became a ruthless killer with no kind of ethical remorse i found it disgusting and out of character.he went from an obedient spineless boy to a random killer. i also didnt like how he just keeps falling in love with whatever pretty girl he sees and decides he wants. I thought she book lacked depth and just seemed like a pointless filler story with no real purpose overall. I found myself scoffing and rolling my eyes through the whole thing, irritated with the story and especially the main character.
"Eh... it's okay..."
I really enjoyed part one of the Stefan diaries. I think because this series is more relate able than the original Vampire Diaries books (for me). This book was okay, the narrator did a wonderful job, but it felt like a stretched out chapter versus a whole book. I will be picking up the next one in the series (Due out in May), but this book is just a filler.
The details were too vague and i understand that they are from Stefan's POV, but Damon's character is not really being given a thorough look. He transformed overnight from the first book. He was this moral, strong character and then he becomes the shallow, ruthless killer without much attention as to why. [It is explained, but not to my satisfaction! I know i am a brat, but if you are a fan like i am... you might agree.]
Worth a listen, but perhaps wait for a sale or later in the year so your wait time between books 2 & 3 is shorter.
