5.0 out of 5 stars Great suspense. April 17 2014
By fredamans TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
*Deep breath*
Wow. Karen sure is a sicko.
But man, it made for great reading. You knew she was full of crap, and you had a feeling all throughout she wasn't telling the truth about her story, but I didn't expect her to be that demented.
I like that when I read a book though. I get pulled into sick twisted minds and go right along with whatever gets dished out.
V.C. Andrews always packs a punch with me. Each story is different, and yet I always get pulled right into it.
This is an older series, but it was new to me. I look forward to reading the next one too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better Jan. 4 2014
By Tez Miller TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
See, this is much better. Fresh, but still with the well-known tropes. Murder and fugitive-harbouring mix with abusive men and manipulative women. And Karen Stoker is manipulative to the max! Which are exaggerations, and which are outright lies? Virgin-shaming, guilt-tripping...Karen does it all, and the Stein siblings are total doormats on which she treads. Surprising that Zipporah and Jesse aren't charged with anything, and Karen seems to have gone straight to a mental care facility rather than a prison. But I just don't understand why the Stein parents would adopt Karen's child. Yes, Jesse's the father, but shouldn't he take responsibility for being led by his wang rather than his brain? Shouldn't he suffer consequences? There's a sequel, and I'm guessing that's from Karen's child's perspective...

1.0 out of 5 stars It pretty much sucks! (spoilers) April 6 2008
By Liquid Diamonds - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It started out interesting. I couldn't put it down at first. But it just got silly. I found Zipporah to be a daft, weak main character that just never comes to life at all.
I felt like there was all this build up and the mystery would be solved but it just turned out Karen was crazy?! Ridiculous.
The ending was highly disappointing. I couldn't believe it!
I felt puzzled and like it was unfinished. Loose ends weren't tied up.
I believe the ghostwriter is getting lazy. He's not sticking to the old formula and the books are suffering.
This was the worst book I've read that has the misfortune of having the wonderful V.C.'s name on it.
I really loved the Landry series, the Cutler series, The Logan series, the Hudson series, even the DeBeers books. I love a lot of what the ghostwriter HAS done.
It just seems that his best days are behind him.
It's all crap these days.
Maybe it's time to lay V.C. to rest once and for all.

1.0 out of 5 stars worst ever Nov. 4 2007
By Robin K - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I love V.C. Andrews, but this book was just the worst. The ghostwriter did absolutely no justice to her. By the second page I knew I wasn't reading her work. The plot itself was good, but the details given to bring it to life were few and far between. The writer did nothing to help you understand where the Karen character was coming from when it was finally revealed she was nothing but a sociopath. The ending was so abrupt I had to check to make sure I didn't skip any pages. What really got to me were all the inconsistencies in the story. Timelines did not unfold correctly; most notably the fact that the family was to take a trip on a saturday when, the tuesday before, the murder happens and by thursday the dad says he should call his mother to explain why they didn't make it on saturday, saturday hadn't even come and gone yet. Whoever proofread the book ought to be fired along with the ghostwriter. I was very dissappointed in this book, and am not sure I even want to read the next in this series.

2.0 out of 5 stars I will buy any book with VCA name on it, and that's a habit I guess I'll have to live with. Oct. 31 2007
By M. Burns - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was bad. Really bad. And this is coming from a woman who can find the good in just about anything. I don't even know where to start or what to say to convey just how terrible a read this was. I've never enjoyed the ghostwriter's books as much as I did VC Andrews, herself. However, once in a blue moon he does manage to write a book or two that I can get through while managing to keep my lunch down at the same time. Keep in mind this is only once... in a blue moon.

I don't know if the main character was meant to be likeable, relatable or believeable, but she was none of the above. What the author tried to pass off as a teenager who is insanely dedicated to her friendship only came off as a teenger who is insanely STUPID. There were some points in the book that, in the middle of reading, I could become infuriated at Zipporah to the point that I would scream, out loud, "Are you KIDDING me?" I mean, the girl is seriously, seriously stupid. I didn't trust Karen from the moment she appeared in the attic, but I do have to agree with the term that she used all too frequently throughout this book, "Don't be thick."

The main character of this book is just that: thick. And if I never hear the term "don't be thick", again, it'll be too soon.

VC Andrews, if you can hear me, I'm terribly sorry that this garbage is being published under your name. Terribly, terribly sorry.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull Oct. 23 2007
By Jenny 8675309 - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was horrible. As a bibliophile, it pains me to say that, but it's the truth. I'm not a book snob, and I know how to appreciate a fun, fluffy read, but the writing in this book made it difficult to stomach. The previous reviewer was correct - the story lacked details, was dull, and really just plodded along. The ONLY reason I finished it was because I can't stand not to finish a book - I am always optimistic that it will somehow improve with the ending. This one did not.

I hate to be negative, but don't waste your time with this one. It's dull.

1.0 out of 5 stars Been there, Done that Dec 17 2007
By Sophie - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
THis book started off interesting, but just left the reader completely dumbfounded at the end. Not only was the main character, Zipporah, a complete fool to almost the end, but the Karen character made absolutely no sense whatsoever. Predictable ending, too. Another beautiful girl goes insane and spends the rest of her life in an institution. Sounds familiar? ( Celeste, Belinda, Laura, Grace)...I think the ghostwriter is going to far. I'm not even looking forward to the next book, which doesn't sound interesting in the least. I borrowed this from someone, and suggest you do the same.
