NOT DISSPOINTED. For them to convert the books in the show. The changes they took were very ness. if they want the show to do good. I agree on most character changes and storyline changes as well. I look and love both things for various diff reasons. There are things in the books that come out better than the show and vise versa.
The thing that I like the most with this changes... well the changes. I like that they can shock me! I mean as good as it to know the books, I don't always want to know how things end and what happens. I really love the shockers the most. It's nice to know that I don't know everything to TVD as weird as that may sound...
But again, there are things that were in the book that I deff want to see in the show an hope they will one day (ahem: Bamon bathub).
Regardless love both.
