I enjoy all of V. C Andrews books, but have outgrown keeping them, it will pull you in with the family secrets and intrigues that seem to plague them from generation to generation.

Second best book in the series after Flowers in the Attic. One of my favorite of Andrews' books.

I read this entire series as a young teenager. At the time I found them thrilling but disturbing. I've never read anything else V.C. Andrews has done -- I never felt the urge. But with this series, something about it captivated me and I ended up reading them all. I enjoyed them when I read them (which was a couple of times; a few years inbetween readings), I truly did. But now, they're a little too creepy for me (and I'm a gore and blood horror fan!). I suppose they're marketed for the pre-teen and teenage crowd, but I wouldn't consider them appropriate for a younger, more impressionable age group (incest aside, there are other equally disturbing issues in these books). But for older teens or adults who enjoy very strange and darker type stories, this whole series is for you.

technically, you can read this book as the first book in the series. but belive me, it has so much more meaning if you read it after 'flowers in the attic'. everything you thought you knew? forget it. 'garden of shadows' tells they grandmother's story, and it is NOTHING like you thought it would be. without a doubt THE best, most shocking book in the series.

Another gem from the series of Flowers in the Attic. This is a prequel to the whole series. If you like the other books in the series, this is a must.
