I read this book when I moved away from home for the first time as a rebellious move. My mom always forbid me from reading VC Andrews when I was little and a teenager (though I was reading Jude Deveraux at age 10). It really wasn't as scandalous as I'd thought it would be...though it was scandalous. I tried to continue reading the series, but I couldn't get into it, and I thought the storyline was gratuitous.

Good trashy fun. You have incest, children held prisoner in an attic, a demonic grandmother - what more could you want.

I love all of V C Andrews books, but my favorite will always be her first one "Flowers in the Attic". It's dark, it's gripping, it's suspenseful and I couldn't put the book down until I had read the last page!!!

Read this whole series when I was in middle school. Really got me interested in reading and reading more.

Would highly recommend for similar age. I may have to go back and read as an adult and see if enjoyable as an adult or just young adult. Not sure there.

I will note - the subject matter may not be acceptable to all families. I would be ok with my children reading, but I can understand some people's apprehension.

But if you are looking for something to get a girl reading - this is a good series.

I didn't want to like this book. It isn't the type of thing I normally read- not even close. Yet I devoured it in one afternoon. The relationships between the siblings was- dare I say it?- believable. I think I may just read the rest of the series. Sometimes you read to learn, and sometimes you read just to shake your head. This book accomplished the latter. The prose was purple but in the good way.
