    One thought on “The Craving”

    1. Library messed up my request, causing me to accidentally skip Book #2 in this portion of the series; I didn't feel I missed much, though. While I'm attempting to finish what I began, the entire Vampire Diaries books, these authors do not do the original author, L.J.Smith, any justice.

    2. Finally I get the book, the final installment in the TVD tie-in series Stefan's Diaries #3 The Craving. You definitely can't pass it up.Here is how the summary goes like:Blood brothers . . .After his brother, Damon Salvatore, betrays him in New Orleans, Stefan starts over in Manhattan. Vowing never to harm another human, he roams the streets, trying to disappear into the city’s chaos. But just when he thinks he’s left his past behind, Stefan discovers that he can never escape his brother. Da [...]

    3. I do like the vampire diaries tv show so reading these books really does help me picture the characters a lot better and what they go through. What I like more about it though is that I can find out more of Stefan and Damon's past and how they got to where they are now and the reasons behind everything that has happened. If you like the show then I'd definitely recommend reading the Stefan's diaries series.

    4. După salvarea lui Damon, moartea lui Callie (fata pe care Stefan începuse să o iubească) şi după lupta dintre cei doi fraţi Salvatore, Stefan decide să plece din New Orleans în New York. Plecarea lui a coincis cu plecarea altei persoane. Veţi vedea mai târziu la ce mă refer.Ajuns în New York, Stefan decide să înceapă o nouă viaţă, adoptând aceeaşi dietă pe care o avea Lexi: hrănindu-se doar cu sângele animalelor, renunţând la a se mai hrăni cu cel omenesc, renunţând [...]

    5. What with the epilogues they put at the end of the previous books ("previously on The Vampire Diaries" lol) we already knew this one was set in high-society New York City. Plotline is a tad predictable, and not quite as much excitement as the previous two books in this series. Stefan and Damon are "at each other's throats" again, with Damon calling all the shots this time. Stef's still struggling with his humanity or lack thereof, and we get a whole new family of innocents pulled into the plotti [...]

    6. This review was written for The Review Diaries: reviewdiaries/201My problem with this series of books is twofold.1) That the series is still being marketed as L. J. Smith’s work. Depending on what version of the books you get some explain that they’re based on her work, but most leave it unclear, and I think it’s unfair to lump these books on her reputation, because it just drags it down.2) That there are now THREE versions of this story. Version A: The original book version of the Vampire [...]

    7. V tretej časti Stefanových denníkov, série spracovanej podľa televízneho seriálu, sa opäť stretávame s bratmi Salvatore. Stefan sa začína pomaly vyrovnávať s tým, že sa z neho stal upír a odchádza do New Yorku, kde sa snaží nájsť nový život. Zabúda na ten starý, v ktorom stratil svoju ľudskosť, prestáva zabíjať a prahnúť po ľudskej krvi. No v tom sa znovu objavuje jeho brat Damon, ktorý mu plány prekazí a poriadne zamieša karty. Obaja sa ocitnú v smrteľnom [...]

    8. Ever since fleeing New Orleans, Stefan has been surviving on rodents and small animals while living apart from humans in a cave in Central Park. And if that isn’t comical enough for you, wait till you hear what Damon has been up to! Come to find out, he’s portraying Italian royalty, compelling his way into (and feeding off of) the high society of New York City. The brothers meet again when Stefan is dragged into one of Damon’s schemes, this time involving a wealthy family, the Sutherlands. [...]

    9. Right so I love L.J. Smith when she's at the top of her game, really I do. I've read most of her books (I think I missed one or two but I'd have to check - all of the big ones and even some not as well known, I've read). So I'm having a really hard time here. I was in the middle of the last book she'd written (The Vampire Diaries: The Return: Midnight) and just couldn't get through it. I was really feeling like the Vampire Diaries as a book series was dead for me. I'd stopped, read other books, [...]

    10. V prvních dvou dílech knižní série vycházející ze seriálového zpracování knižní předlohy L.J.Smith jsme se seznámili s oběma bratry, kteří propadli stejné dívce a nakonec se nedobrovolně stali upíry. Zatímco první díl se zaměřoval na důvod jejich proměny, druhý se zabýval tím, jak se oba dva se svou proměnou vypořádávají. Nutkno podotknout, že jde o zajímavý pohled na upíry, jejich schopnosti a zvrácenou mysl. Zatímco v druhém díle se Stefan choval s [...]

    11. I didn't mean to take so long to read this book, it's just that I started it with the excerpt at the end of #2 and then it took a long time to process at the library, and then other books came up that I needed to finish reading firstStefan's in NYC, after escaping a crazy vampire circus in New Orleans. He's determined never to see Damon again. While hunting in Central Park, he stumbles across a girl who's been stabbed and left for dead. He resists the temptation to feed on her, and saves her lif [...]

    12. It has been a while since I have read one of the Stefan Diaries books, but once I start reading them I just never want to leave the world of Stefan, Damon, and Lexi! They are all such fun characters to read from and I enjoy seeing more of Lexi since her fate was short on the show. I wish that the TV show never killed her off and that she became a series regular. I could tell that she would be one of my favorite characters.It is interesting to see all the different things that Stefan did before h [...]

    13. After reading the first two one after the other, i was eagerly waiting the release of this one. It was just that the first one was really good, the second was a bit better, but i throughly enjoyed reading both. When i found this book in my local bookstore, 5 days early i couldn't believe. After buying it, i rushed home and started to read it. It took me a long time to get through this book which is saying something as it is only a small book. But i found this book very slow. The storyline didn't [...]

    14. Blood brothers . . . After his brother, Damon Salvatore, betrays him in New Orleans, Stefan starts over in Manhattan. Vowing never to harm another human, he roams the streets, trying to disappear into the city’s chaos. But just when he thinks he’s left his past behind, Stefan discovers that he can never escape his brother. Damon has grand plans for the vampire Salvatore brothers—whether Stefan likes it or not. Together, they take New York by storm. When their exploits end up on the society [...]

    15. This book was absolutely terrible. First off, I can't believe they are getting away with pretending this terribly written book was done by LJ Smith, since it was actually written by a ghostwriter. It was hastily written, crass, and made me want to burn it for ruining her original series. This book is not worth reading.

    16. Un plaisir à lire pour les fans de la série! :) On n'imagine vraiment bien personnagesDans ce bouquin, on voit clairement la cruauté de Damon dans toute sa splendeur! Un Damon comme j'aime! :DEncore des cadavres, du sang, de la manipulation

    17. You can really tell these things are aiming for tv-quality, at best; that really how it reads: like cliff notes from a shitty tv series. That said, of the three of these prequels I've read so far, this has been the best; regrettably though, that's not saying muchTE: This is more a detailed plot summary than a review. I write these so I can remember what happened in any given book, especially those in a series. But if anyone else finds this helpful - awesome.This one starts off with Stefan carvin [...]

    18. Ho smesso di chiedere e acquistare i libri di Lisa Jane Smith dopo aver scoperto libri migliori. Il fato ha voluto che ci tornassi su. Come avevo previsto, lettura piuttosto noiosa, e non perchè assomigli o meno alla serie tv (che secondo me è riuscita decisamente meglio dei libri), la storia ha pure una sua logica, ma non mi prende più. Non ho neanche la scusa che dopo molti anni in cui non li ho più toccati non ricordavo i libri precedenti, visto che è solo il terzo diario di Stefan e pi [...]

    19. Writing does feel lackluster to read, and is a wee bit predictable. Definitely loosely based off the show. Given that particular events happened differently along with the learning of other characters.Am finding that Stefan isn't much on the quick wit of things. Some aspects didn't really make sense either, but kind of just rolled with it. All in all, it is alright. Not much of a story line, and little actually stands out overall.

    20. Αυτό το βιβλίο, αρχικά τουλάχιστον, προβλεπόταν να είναι το τελευταίο της σειράς των ημερολογίων του Stefan. Αυτός, ίσως, και να είναι ο λόγος που είναι κάπως πιο άνευρο και "τεμπέλικο" από τα δύο προηγούμενα, αφού οι δημιουργοί του δεν ήταν σίγουροι πως να το φιλτράρουν και να τ [...]

    21. Stefan has his regrets and has vowed to not hurt any one else. He is living along and in the wilderness. He discovers a hurt girl in the park and takes her to safety. He gets caught up in the family and again with Damon. There is a plot against him and a dangerous monster chasing them.

    22. Finally got round to finishing this, well written and love going back over the beginning of my favourite Salvatore brothers. Damon frustrated me as much as when he first joined the tv show, but over all loved the book.

    23. I enjoyed reading the book. Normally I don't enjoy reading books, but this was an interesting story. I watched "the vampire diaries " (a tv show), and some parts were a bit different. Some of the characters had different names and the book is played in New York, instead of Mystic Falls like in the serie. There were many details that were different but the main story was the same.

    24. Když Stefan ve druhém díle této nové série potkal upírku Lexi, jeho "život" se obrátil, dalo by se říci, o nějakých 180 stupňů. Zapřísahal se, že už nikdy v životě neochutí lidskou krev a zůstane jen na zvířecí dietě. Dokonce se mu podařilo i zamilovat. Jenže i jemu je jasné, že jeho bratr Damon mu žádné štěstí nedovolí - dokázal to tím, že zabil jeho novou lásku. Tak se Stefan z New Orleans stěhuje do New Yorku, aby začal zcela nový život. Seznamuje [...]

    25. Before I Read the BookHopefully this is the book where Stefan grows a conscience. And Damon gets rid of his.Summary of the StoryAfter Stefan's time in New Orleans, he decides he wants a fresh start so he goes to New York. (view spoiler)[He almost immediately comes across a young girl who has been stabbed and left for dead in the park, and takes her home. Her very wealthy family welcomes him in with open arms, and before he knows it he finds his place among them. He escorts the youngest daughter [...]
