I think the show portrays much more of the Damon we like in the show than in the books. Most of us only watch the show for the damon slash DE moments,because there that amazing.
Damon is so much of a character development. I don't think we'd like him as much,if he was any other way. He entails so much self-loathing for someone who's so up his own backside. He has humanity underneath all the evil. He has so many layers which are likable and unique and the things he comes out with are just hilarious!.
He's awesome in the books. Ian really did his homework on him.. especially with the smirks/mannerisms. Love it.
Although I loved the little moments Damon and Matt had in the book; like when Damon continued to call him "mutt" lol! I wished they had them in the show every now and then
u have to read the book!
damon is so much MORE funny and i love his attitude
he isnt a crazy psycho like the show!
he is sweet and manipulative and NEVER violent with women he teases his little brother but he respects him and he is passionate about elena but caring and protective with bonnie
he is really wealthy (ferrari...) and he is loyal
Katherine: yes my love
damon:...GET THE HELL OF OUT HERE!!!!!
