Hi,

I read an article a while back which said that the Vampire Diaries show is only based (very) loosely on the books...
 
That got me thinking... For those of you who have read the books... Are you disappointed that the show doesn't follow them a lot more in terms of their storylines/couples etc?
 
Which storyline/scene in particular (from the books) would you have liked to see?
 
Would love to hear your comments Smile...
 
Take Care

well i like the books and movies in different ways.
guys you have to remember the books are old..in the 90's some the sutff was cool and not so cool today.

i think of them as different specimens and dont compare them..like i would compare the Hp books and movies

Well for once I am NOT dissapointed!!
Ususally the books are better but not this time!
The show is AMAZING and I've read the books though they are good I have to say the the show is better!!! no offence to book fans! I think the show story line is better than the book!!
 
(I like the way the show has more of Damon! the books barely show the guy!)

well.. i havent read the boooks but im pretty sure the shows better.
just like GG, the show is very loosely based  on the book..
just the same names, and some attributes, and thats about it.
i like thats its different.

Actually, this is only Season 1 and I like the show but still we have to wait for the upcoming seasons to compare the books and show which one is better.For me, I like the both but watch them in different point of view.

ohh ya good question!!
 
Matt is exactly the same from the books!! Jeremy doesn't exist in the books so can't really say that! Umm Caroline is much nicer in the show so I likse her better in the show  and Stefan is mostly  the same I think he is a bit more laid back in the show so love him in the show! And LOVE Damon in the show!! like I said before there isn't much to judge him from in the books!! But mostly I like Elena in the show better cause she is a COMPLETELY different person in the show she is much nicer, more normal and I guess Nina just plays her character REALLY well!! So pverall I think the Cast in th show is MUCH better than the books!!
 
 
(whew that was a long post lozzzLOL)
