Welcome to Book Versus Movie!
Err.. Well; in this case – T.V. Show; not Movie lol.
But still; it’s the same concept!
Did you bring your thinking caps?!
Have you seen this show? Read the books? Did one, but not the other?
Well, either way – leave me your opinions!
I’ve heard so many mixed reviews on this one..
This Weeks Book & Movie Is:
The Vampire Diaries by L.J. Smith
Book Covers & T.V. Show Posters
(this is not all of them – just some)
Oh man.. I am TORN on this one.. Seriously. I read these books a LONG time ago and I loved them! I will admit that I have not read all the ones he has written about this series, but I am trying my best to keep up. What I have read, I have really enjoyed. I think the story line of the books is amazing. & honestly; who wouldn’t want to read about it?! No, really. The fact that she’s torn between these two brothers makes for one interesting read. & me, being me, can’t help but root for the underdog.
As far as the show goes. I both love AND hate it. Yea – I am that person!
I think the characters are hit and miss when it comes to the show. I especially loved Elena in the books. In the show; she doesn’t come across as “badass” as she did in the book.
I LOVE Damon.. seriously; anyway you go about it, I just love the guy. The only issue I have with the TV show is that made him all… idk; emo? He talks more about being human in the TV show then he ever did in the book.
Connie – I love her on the show more than I did in the book.. && Caroline; well, I couldn’t care for her either way honestly.
As far as the story line goes; the TV Show is rather different from the book. Even with that as a factor, I still like it.. So I guess you can say I like them both.. equally; maybe? I honestly can’t decide if I like one more than the other lol.
I’d love to hear some other opinions on this weeks Book Versus Movie!
I know we all have strong feelings when it comes to this kind of thing, so I love hearing other peoples opinions! I know I sometimes like movies over the books and vice versa, so I like seeing what others who share my interest think!
