This is probably the most twisted book that I have ever read and it is hands down, my most favorite from V.C. Andrews. I am a huge VCA fan. Have been for 16 years now and this book is one that VCA herself wrote and you can tell. The imagery, the dialogue, the characters, they are all alive. VCA was a master of words and this book is no exception.
This is a stand alone book. Unlike the rest of the books under the VCA name, this is the only one that is not in a series. All the events begin and end with this book. Others are simply not needed. This book has it all. Mystery, suspense, romantic interest, and a shocking ending unlike no other. If you are a VCA fan, you MUST read this book.
This is the only V.C. Andrews book that I'm aware of that isn't a part of a series-it is an excellent book and a quick read, though it does have some mature content.
I had mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand it did keep me reading till the very end. I thought it was a very sad book. I didnt like the ending.
My Sweet Audrina by V.C. Andrews is the mysterious story of a young girl named Audrina, who spends most of her time being a shut-in with her parents, aunt and cousin. Because of something that happened to her older sister (the First and Best Audrina), she (the Second and Inferior Audrina) cannot go to school or be around boys. Eventually Audrina starts to have somewhat of a normal life, with piano lessons, school, and a friendship with the neighbor boy, Arden, which turns into love. Yet she cannot shake her sister's death from the shadows, and realizes there is something about the First Audrina she must know.
This is the only stand-alone novel penned by Andrews. While I didn't care for the romance between the Arden and Audrina, her cousin Vera is by far the best villain ever written in the Andrews books to date. This was a book actually written by Andrews (and not her Ghostwriter), so it has that authentic sense of Gothic horror and sick, twisted family relationships her fans have come to know and love. A guilty pleasure for sure, but sometimes we all need easy reading.
Liked this very much,very twisted.
