Flowers in the Attic by Virginia Andrews
Flowers In The Attic - Virginia Cleo Andrews

I’m not going to go on for too long about this novel because so much has already been said about it.

 

What I will say is, I really enjoyed it. What the children had to endure was terrible, but it was told so skilfully that I couldn’t help, regardless of the subject matter, fall in love with it. There was a mounting sense of unease that came across very well too.

 

Even though it's quite a claustrophobic novel, there was no point that I was bored, mostly because it was structured so well. It did feel a little bit long though and could have been cut by fifty pages or so.

 

At times I did get frustrated with the characters. I felt they could have done more to secure their freedom, but I understand the difficulties. I also keep shaking my head at Cathy’s brother Chris’s refusal to accept certain things! Again, totally understandable though.

 

Told entirely from Cathy’s point of view in first-person this novel is well worth a read, but do expect to find it at times uncomfortable.

I'm loving this series so much that I moved straight from the first book- my review of that'll come soon by the way- onto the second. I'm really hoping to see some well-executed revenge. Is that twisted of me!? Hell, who cares!

Oooh this is a difficult read. I kiind-of want it to be over because I can't take the cruelty those children have to deal with anymore! It's brilliant though, all difficulty aside.

My first book of 2015 and it looks like I've picked a really good one. Even though it's a difficult read, considering the circumstances and cruelty the children have to deal with, the characters are making it come alive. I'm so caught-up in it that I hate having to put it down! Damn-it, why can't I be a faster reader!
