““Devotees of the show will also get a tingle out of Crissy Calhoun's Love You to Death: The Unofficial Companion to The Vampire Diaries (ECW Press,2010). In this TV-side guide, the author lovingly delves into the details of a supernatural world that's both "heartfelt and human" . . . Well written and thoroughly detailed, this book will satisfy and entertain dyed-in-the-wool viewers.” —School Library Journal
“Love You to Death: The Unofficial Companion to The Vampire Diaries Season 2 is full of heart, and as companion books go, even though this is unofficial, it has me amazed at the amount of detail within. I know this had to have taken a lot of work, but the author, Crissy Calhoun, totally pulled it off. . . . If you’re a fan of The Vampire Diaries, this is definitely a must-read.” — Craig Byrne, KSiteTV.com

I simply cannot do without this book when marathoning the episodes as soon as the yearly DVD set hits the market. I especially enjoyed the TVD staff commentary scattered throughout--you can really `see' where some of the ingenious plot twists and epic visuals get their inspiration from! Besides breaking down each and every episode in depth, there are also ingenious comparisons as to the origins of some of the fractured history that make up the basis for each episode, the episode titles, references to history and literature that were drawn on--so many times things that never occurred to you as a viewer! I love how every book in this series compares `where we've been' to `where we are now' in the big scheme of TVD. Any viewer/reader that's also a history buff will revel in the detailed `real world' events that may have inspired certain scenes and events in our characters' lives. There are also sections devoted entirely to the questions that may or may not have occurred to you during the season, as well as some of those `uncertain' events that may not exactly mesh (for the moment) with what we've seen.
These books aren't designed to `recap' the episodes, rather to enhance your thoughts as an avid watcher of the show, and spark some thoughtful contemplation for the future. Since I personally have seen every episode multiple times by the time this must-have piece of literature arrives, I don't necessarily read each chapter right after watching an episode--but that would be a great way to do it for folks just starting this book series! And you simply MUST get each edition of LYTD for every season!
One of my favorite new additions this season was the music list, by scene, that the ladies researched and included--any rabid watcher also LOVES the music used in the world of TVD, and some of the obscure new artists may just make your play list permanently!
I have ALWAYS loved the timeline section near the end of the book--this is REALLY where the Encyclopedia BritFANGnia comes in. You have no idea how many arguments I've settled as to who-did-what-to-who-when just using Crissy's dates and timeline information. Sure saves all that searching with the Fast Forward button!
If you don't have a copy yet, RUN, don't walk to get your copy NOW!
Love You to Death is one of those books that you'll turn to again and again. Just as I watch The Vampire Diaries over and over, I always have my set of Crissy Calhoun's books close by, reading each chapter as I watch the corresponding episode. It's fun to look into what she's written to see if she shares my thoughts on character motivation or if a plot development is as shocking to her as it is to me. Calhoun's episode analysis also includes what she found to be the episodes compelling moment, what she refers to as "foggy" moments (plot holes, continuity issues) and even a song list for each show.
As a Vampire Diaries' fan, I wouldn't be without this book or the entire series. Five stars all the way.
