4.0 out of 5 stars The Return of an Artist, Sept. 2 2004
This review is from: My Colouring Book (Audio CD)
I was very excited and intrigued to discover that Agnetha Faltskog had decided to release a new album. Particularly after her "self-exile" of several years from the world at large. She had made such an important and worthwhile contribution to the world of music as a member of ABBA. It was an unfortunate reality that her previous solo works were not altogether strong or even overly interesting releases. In my opinion though, this latest album (My Colouring Book) redeems all of Ms. Faltskog's post-ABBA endeavors. Here you will find a mature and confident songtress still in complete artistic control of her nothing-less-than-glorious capabilities. She sounds GREAT. The choices of songs and in fact, her dedication to all the artists that inspired her early on, is more than appropriate. This is EXACTLY the kind of album she should be producing at this time of her life. The Lady has paid her dues and done more than enough for her adoring fans. Now she need do nothing more than record an album of songs simply because she can. And beautifully too. The dance remix singles are fun also, and I hope they are being enjoyed in clubs all over the world. Really, the only thing that would have made this album as close to perfect as possible would have been a duet with Anni-Frid (Frida) Lyngstad, the other half of the beautiful singing duo of ABBA.

5.0 out of 5 stars V.C. Andrews was a MASTER storyteller..., July 23 2003
Truly, the only Andrews novels worthy of a read were the ones written by the lady herself. To my knowledge, the only books that were completely written by her, from start to finish, were the Dollanganger series, MY SWEET AUDRINA, and the beginning of the next series about the Casteels. V.C. Andrews left us too early but she left us some extraordinary gifts with the tales of the Foxworths. All 5 books are enigmatic and addictive. They are all highly absorbing but the coup de gras was writing GARDEN OF SHADOWS last. Here, Andrews takes a truly villainous villainESS (Olivia Winfield Foxworth) and transforms her, quite poetically, into the victim. We read about Olivia's experiences and discover WHY she ended up the way that she did. We end up understanding and sympathizing with her. Andrews uses this literary device with skill and precision. If you have an opportunity to experience the phenomenon of V.C. Andrews, do not waste your time with the novels following MY SWEET AUDRINA. Instead, curl up with the series about the Foxworths on cold winter's night and enjoy. I would also recommend that you read the series in the order that it was published; starting with FLOWERS IN THE ATTIC and finishing with GARDEN OF SHADOWS.
