There isnt a book out there quite like this one! Flowers in the Attic is a dark, horrifying and mysterious book about four children locked away in a secret room while the await their mother's re-inheritance. These are normal children growing up in highly unusual and horrible circumstances. Although quite a bizzare novel, it deals with many real life conflicts and feelings such as love, incest,jealousy, and especially greed. The mystery of this book will keep you turning pages all night long; when you finish you'll be dying for more, so dont forget to check out the sequals!

I received the other two books. Flowers in the Attic was supposed to be shipped with Petals in the Wind as Flowers in the Attic is the first book you are supposed to read for the series...not impressed.

Twenty years ago my 12 year old self was searching for something to read. My mother had a collection of V.C. Andrews, I think just the Dollanganger and Casteel series and these fascinated me because of their covers, with the old step back pictures in them. I choose to read Flowers in the Attic, having convinced my parents to let me watch the movie (1987 version nothing like the book at all) and I was enthralled and re read it several times over the next couple of years. I remember being the only one of my friends who had read it. My best friend was quite shocked when she read over the grandmother's list of rules, I think it might have traumatized her. Unlike most people, back then the incest and sexual tension went right over my head, in fact I barely remembered it being there. Only the abuse they suffered stuck in my head. It had been many years since I read Flowers in the Attic but with the remake of the movie and the sequel Petals on the Wind I couldn't resist and wondered if the book would still hold up as the amazing read I remember when I was young. Surprisingly it did hold up, I still found the story quite gripping and riveting, even though I knew exactly what would happen next, I still felt the drama and suspense of the each moment, however I did look at some things in a different light. I noticed the incest, the sexual tension. I mean the two older children not only were checking each other out, but also their parents, that was disturbing. The writing was at times overly flowery, and the hair issue was an annoyance. Really your hair or food? You do know hair grows back right? Besides who's going to see it you're locked in an attic.Read more ›

I first read this book as a teenager and continued until I finished the series. I noticed the movie came out recently and was so happy to watch it! The only thing I realized was that the book was far better than the movie was so I bought the book again so I can enjoy it all over again as an adult.

When I read this book in Grade 8 English, it was mandatory reading. It was also the book that catapulted my love for suspense & mystery. I'm glad I read it then and am glad to have re-read it now. Have to admit, I find the impact of the story much different now as an adult and a parent. When I was young I didn't grasp the whole story but now as a mother I get it. My view has changed and stayed the same. I loved it then and love it now even more.
I got real angry reading this time around. Angry at the parent and source of apparent safety, (the mother), and the grandparent, (the grandmother). I still can't fathom how they could hurt, violate, and make these children suffer.
That anger also reinforced how great this story and the writer is. To make me feel the way I do and bring those emotions in me when reading, that's why V.C. Andrews is and always will be a favorite of mine. Ever!
My only gripe would be liking the old, original cover better.
I am definitely gonna catch the film. I sincerely hope it does the book justice.
