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


REVIEW:
The movie was a lot different from the book, right from the beginning. I'm not convinced it was such a good thing though. The book is so cleverly written, where the movie though it was okay didn't do the book justice.
I like the cast. I like the set and costume design. Even the cinematography was great. The story was changed though and that is what made the film just alright. Plus the movie was much more disturbing, and not in a good way as you might think. I generally go for disturbing. Not this time though.
I admit, I'm curious to see how the other books will be adapted. They did sign on for them all. Disturbing is what I like, so hopefully the next set of films can get back on track.


3/5

  1. In my experience, the movie is never as good as the book. Most times the story changes significantly, which is rarely a good thing.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  2. Interesting to read your reviews on this series. I've been avoiding watching this new batch of films made since the ones that came out earlier which I found lacking.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
