""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

PS: Ich habe es mir auf Englisch gekauft, da ich die Serien zum einen lieber im Original anschaue und meiner Meinung nach in der Übersetzung oftmals etwas Flair und Witz verloren geht.

As soon as I heard there was going to be a companion book to the show I just had to purchase it and I am SO happy I did. This book is FANTASTIC and I have read it several times since receiving it. There is a Season 1 episode guide, but unlike many guides that just say what happens in each episode, this goes directly into the heart of everything and details what the consequences of each character's actions will be, which I find REALLY interesting, as it really gets you thinking.
The cast itself has been perfectly chosen and there is also a section of the book that's devoted to the actors and actresses as well as the show's creators, Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec and even L.J. Smith, who wrote the source material that the show is based on.
I really hope there will be a similar book published for Season 2 and please don't let the word 'Unofficial' on the cover put you off purchasing this, as it's truly a must-buy for all fans of the show.
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.
*First, the book starts with an intro on how each episode is summarized and set-up. The next chapter provides a bit of information about the writer of the Vampire Diaries book series, L.J. Smith, and tons of info about the shows creators.
*Next is a section of bios on the major characters/cast of TVD, from how their careers started to where they grew up, there are several bits of information on each each actor/actress.
*Next is the main part of the book, the episode guide. The guide is outlined episode by episode with the same questions and categories answered about each one. There is also random information thrown in throughout the episodes summaries about behind-the-scenes, related books and movies that the episodes drew inspiration from, minor character bios and more.
*In the middle of the guide is 9 full page, colored pictures of the main characters along with a few quotes from the show.
*The last sections of the book includes three interviews and a time-line. The first interview is with the writers of a book called, "A Visitor's Guide To Mystic Falls," which is a collection of TVD essays. The next interview is with one of the extras who works on The Vampire Diaries show, who tells us what it's like working the main characters as well as how it feels to watch the show in the making. The last interview is with TVD cast member Malese Jow, aka Anna.
*The last section of the book is a time-line in which Calhoun tries to place together each event, going all the way back to the 1400's, from the first season of The Vampire Diaries.
The episode summaries are very well done and organized. If you are a reader of the TVD book series, you will love that the author brings up events from the novels and shows how certain events in the show are both alike and different from the events in The Vampire Diaries novels. I really liked the behind-the-scenes parts and the character interview with Anna. The related books and TV show bits were very well used to break-up the episode summaries as well show all the inspiration the show draws from similar works, which makes the book seem more informative overall. I would have loved if there were more cast interviews and I think the only thing missing from this guide is a small section where the entire season is summarized as a whole, as well Calhoun's overall thoughts - That would have been a nice addition after reading the individual episode summaries.
Overall, I think this is a very handy guide to read after you watch the first season of The Vampire Diaries. "Love You to Death" not only summarizes each TV episode, but gives you other information about the characters, creators, and the shows inspirations.
