Book Review: The Awakening

Title:The Awakening
Series: The Vampire Diaries
Author: L. J. Smith
Published: 1991

Elena: She is the high school golden girl, the one every boy wants, and every girl wants to be. And Elena is used to getting what she wants, so when she meets handsome Stefan she swears to make Stefan hers - or die.

Stefan: Torn by guilt over his past, and mindful of the threat his vengeful brother Damon poses to anyone Stefan gets close to, he swears to resist his desire for Elena . . . for her own good.

Damon: Sexy, dangerous and driven by an urge for revenge against Stefan, who betrayed him, Damon follows his brother to Fell's Church - and Elena.

Soon Elena finds herself torn between two vampire brothers - one good and one evil - and in terrible danger.

My thoughts:

I can honestly say that this is the book I liked the least of the four books I read in this series. I didn't like Elena at all in the beginning of the book, she was spoiled and egocentric and used other people for her own good. But as this series continues Elena changes to a better, more caring person, and she realizes how much the people in her life mean to her, and how much she is willing to give up in order to protect them.

The story was also a bit slow in the beginning, but about halfway through the story paces up, and gets more exciting, action-filled and mysterious - and I started to like the book.

The rest of the books in the Vampire Diaries are much better; the characters are more developed and dimensional, and the pace is faster and more exciting.
This book, with it's 250+ pages, is a quick and easy read, so my advice for you is to quickly read this book, then pick up the rest of the books in the Vampire Diaries! You won't regret it!

Grade: 3 of 5
