Spanish readers review

Para los lectores en espanol de " Despertar" Compre este libro por curiosidad despues de haber conocido la serie "The vampire diaries" ya que esta basada en la saga de L.J. Smith, y realmente quede agradablemente sorprendida, pues la historia original es diferente a la serie, tiene una buena intriga, un buen ritmo en la historia y al final te deja con ganas de mas! yo ya compre la segunda y tercera parte de la saga.... no te fies la serie esta basada en esta saga pero NO esta fielmente adaptada lo que es una buena sorpresaa cuando lees la historia original.

One of Smith's earlier books but just as good as Night World

The Awakening is the first books in one of L. J. Smith's early series, The Vampire Diaries, and was first published back in the early 90s. This series is one of the better teen horror ones. Leaving at least some of the formulas behind, #1 The Awakening sets up the main characters and the center love triangle: vampire brothers Stefan and Damon Salvatore, whose fight over young vampire Katherine in Renassaince Italy led to their turning, and Elena Gilbert, the human high school girl that will renew their centuries-old feud. Highly reccomend for horror and vampire fans.

One of the greatest books ever!

This is not just another "I'm going to bite you" vampire book. This one has more quality and understanding to the feelings of their nature. Mrs. Smith writes terrific novels about the bravery and courage the main characters have and what they go through to procede that way. It's not easy but you'll see that none of them will ever quit in what they believe in.

L.J. Smith has unbelievable talent!!!!

I loved each book in Vampire Diaries (can't underline)!!! My favorite of all of them was The Awakening because it was so mysterious and the first impression that Elena got of both brothers is so perfect that it builds the suspense. I read each book in no more than two book-gripping nights. I reread them all again two years later and read them with the same feeling of "I-have-to read-sydrome." I am never going to let any of them out of my sight-especially The Awakening. They will be passed down to any children I might have in the future. Every one of them, especially the first, played a great part in me taking a voracious appetite to reading. Before I read L.J. Smith's The Awakening, I only read required books at school. After I read The Awakening's first chapter I knew I had found a new love and I would forever be searching for her name in every bookstore I came across. I know that if you read it, you too, will feel compelled to search for her. Hopefully, she will write books for everyone to enjoy in the near future-Until then, I know a lot of people who will search the isles in each book store anxiously awaiting a brilliant work of fantasy to come into bloom. I recommend that if you read Larell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series and loved it, you will be enamored with L.J. Smith's Vampire Diaries: The Awakening (as well as her other books in the series). It's the first book I ever really picked up and read cover-to-cover, and although I have read countless books since then, I remember Vampire Diaries: The Awakening (and the rest) like I just read them yesterday!

Best series to read and reread and still be entertained

I stumbled on to this series at a book store many years ago. I couldn't believe that there were books this well done. This series takes you into it. You are right there watching everything happen. The flashbacks are extremely vivid also. Smith keeps you in her creation because you end up reading and rereading the series. The Diaries encaptured me to the point where I was crying my eyes out at times and I had to put the book down for a minute. I used to ignore my other novels and just read these. I would even take them to school and show my best friend. HE even began to love the series. It is well worth your time and money.
