My review for Flowers In The Attic

My review for the film adaption of Flowers In The Attic, released in 2014


AUTHOR BIO:One of the most popular authors of all time, V.C. Andrews has been a bestselling phenomenon since the publication of her spellbinding classic Flowers in the Attic. That blockbuster novel began her renowned Dollanganger family saga, which includes Petals on the Wind, If There Be Thorns, Seeds of Yesterday, and Garden of Shadows. Since then, readers have been captivated by more than fifty novels in V.C. Andrews' bestselling series. The thrilling new series featuring the March family continues with Scattered Leaves, forthcoming from Pocket Books. V.C. Andrews' novels have sold more than one hundred million copies and have been translated into sixteen foreign languages. 


REVIEW:
Disturbing!
Disturbing in a good way though. The story is engaging. I was on a ride of emotions, upset at times at what I was reading.
Cathy started to piss me off at one point. Like, how can one person be so filled with malice and spite?! All she could think about was revenge.Yeah, it made for good reading, but there was a part of me that wondered why she couldn't knock it off already.
Then I realized how strong I felt showed how pulled into the story I really got. Must be good, solid writing.
No, it wasn't as good as Flowers In The Attic, but it had good moments. 
When I read this one as a teen, I wasn't as disturbed. I think being a mother now added to that a lot. I am looking forward to watching the film adaption to this now too. I like when books are brought to life.
As a heads up for fans, the rest of this series is signed for movie adaptions as well. That means we all best get reading!


4/5

  4. I remember reading this series when I was fairly young and it was quite scandalous! I don't think I fully understood what I was reading though. I'd probably enjoy it more now!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
