“The Awakening” By L.J. Smith Review

A Love Triangle of Unspeakable Horror. Elena. Searching for the ultimate thrill, she vowed to have Stefan. Stefan. Haunted by his tragic past, he struggled to resist her passion. Damon. Driven by revenge, he hunted the brother who betrayed him. The terrifying story of two vampire brothers and the beautiful girl torn between them.

The first book is way different than the tv series let me tell you that. The only thing in common is some of the names of characters in both the series and this book. And other than that the plot, character appearances, events etc are way different.

The plot here is good. Its not a masterpiece but it is good enough to have me being engaged in it, interested in it, enjoying it, turning the pages and keep reading this series. The plot here is much better than Twilight because Elena is very likeable and she isn’t so fucking annoying as Bella. The plot here is better in every way. And Elena is begging Stefan or Damon in every chapter to turn her into a vampire.

Of course there is some drama in this book and in this series as a whole. There isn’t so much melodrama in this book but it will be as we keep going in this series. But I don’t mind that when it comes to some YA books as this one and this series. 

The characters are amazing. Because they feel like real human beings and there is so much depth in them. It is very easy to tell them apart because they are sp different from each other in a good way of course.

The writing style here is amazing. It is simple, easy as in every other YA book. But this simple writing style really adds a lot to this book in a positive way which I really enjoyed. Because the plot is very easy and doesn’t need a lot of brain power. Which means that the writing style and the plot play along with each other. 

If this series continues to be as good as this book then L.J. Smith might become my favourite author. 

I Give This Book 4 / 5
