This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the TV Show
   Stefan is staying at a boarding house run by Mrs. Flowers. He stays at the family house that was initially owned by his descendant Zack, before he was killed by Damon.
   Katherine is originally from Germany. She is from Romania.
   Vampires survive in sunlight when they wear lapis lazuli, a type of mineral. Katherine had a ring that contained it and so do the Salvatore brothers. They survive in the light thanks to rings made by witches.
   When Stefan arrives in town he forgets things and believes he may be responsible for killings that have been attributed to wild animals. It turns out to be Damon who is killing the townspeople. Stefan doesn't suffer any memory lapses, and he knows it is Damon who is killing people.
   The high school is named Robert E. Lee High School. It is called Mystic Falls High.
