I am not sure why I acquired this book – I think I got it confused with another series - and while it was a fast, easy read (requiring one short sitting only) and mildly entertaining, it was just too facile for my tastes; thus overall rather unsatisfying.Pointedly aimed at a youth market, this is the story of young, unrequited love and brotherly jealousy, all within the boundaries of a dark, tantalising and seductive world. At the beginning of school term beautiful Elena, the unrivalled ‘queen of her school’ is nonplussed when the new overly-handsome boy, Stefan, practically ignores her, which ensures she becomes excessively intrigued with his unusual ways. And as it inevitably unfolds, Stefan hides a dark personal history which Elena eventually uncovers, along with their burgeoning mutual love; oh, and along with Stefan’s older brother, Damon, and his wicked ways.Full of too, too gorgeous creatures, with tragic pasts and circumstances, the story offered an initial promising supposition but devolved into a pedestrian, superficial dissertation of all tales vampiric; topped by a truly bewildering ending. Possibly it will appeal to its target audience; potentially it will reinforce the unrealistic dreams and depths of adolescent hearts, but to this old and wizened reader it fell far short of true enjoyment. The rest of this tale, this is the first of a long series, I will leave to its archetypical, ardent and committed teenage fandom – glad, at least that these books may encourage this age group to read lots. And that, of itself, is no bad thing.(Mar 13, 2010)more
