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.
Liked this very much,very twisted.
This is one of my all-time favorite books!
One of the original books by the "real" VC Andrews. This story is haunting and written well before the VC ANdrews "formula" became redundant.
V.C. Andrews has a truly twisted way of telling stories...
Another great story by this author. I love everything she has written.
I think this is the only Andrews novel that is not part of a series. It wasn't bad. It is marketed as horror, but is more of a gothic mystery.
I remember my mother reading V.C. Andrews' books when I was little. I happened to come across some at a yard sale one day and decided, what's $0.25, if I don't like the book, I'll just sell it at my own yard sale or donate it to the library (this was before I joined PaperBack Swap). This is the first book I have read.
Within the first 50 pages I knew how the book was going to end, little could I imagine all the twists and turns involved up to the last page. Definitely a page turner. A book I would read again!
This is the darkest of all the VC Andrews books and one of the most facinating. It shows the horrors that rape can inflict on a young girl, especially when she comes from a demented family. Audrina herself will surprise you. It's a shame that VC Andrews' heirs chose to taint her great literary prowess by having a ghostwriter continue to write under her name, because those books are cheap imitations of her art.
This is the only V.C. Andrews story I have ever read and after reading it I want to read them all. This story was truly haunting and bizarre. The whole time you're thinking "WHAT IS GOING ON??". I felt so sorry for the girl in the story, that with every page I hoped it would get better for her. Because I was so haunted by this book its hard to say it was a great book, but it really was a GREAT BOOK. Suspenseful and full of emotion. I recommend it highly.
