    1. Fuck this shit. Seriously.To date, over 70 books have been published under the VCA name. Out of these, only eight were actually written/completed by VCA herself, and four more were started by her but she died before she could complete her manuscripts. So this means that not half, not even a third, or a quarter, or even a seventh of these books actually had any of VCA's writing in them.'The newer books have been poorly received, and no wonder - crap with vampires, ghosts, crazy over the top abusi [...]


    2. Before ReadingDear Andrew Neiderman (or whoever wrote this book), Please don't ruin Chris. He's my favorite "Flowers In The Attic" character. After ReadingTo be honest, I did not finish this book. I made it to page 213 and I can't take it anymore. At the end of "Garden's of Shadows," the scene where they first meet the Grandmother plays out exactly as it did in "Flowers In The Attic," (view spoiler)[,until the very end when you almost ruins Chris by implying that Chris already has romantic feeli [...]


    3. I realize that the V.C. Andrews Enterprise has been churning out terrible books at a rapid pace for the past 30 years, but this was truly a wasted opportunity. Major spoilers ahead for this book and its awful sequel (also, you're welcome).V.C. Andrews books are also among the only ones that compel me to write plot summaries because they're bonkers, and because they speak for themselves. Unfortunately these two are also incredibly boring, but here's what happens anyway:I can't remember the protag [...]


    4. Alright, I stopped reading VC Andrews books when they all became the same character with the same scenario. I wish I could say I stopped reading VC Andrews books when they stopped being written by VC Andrews, but I clung a little longer to what I hoped would be the continuation of something good. When I realized it would not be, I had to give up.So when I heard that Neiderman was going to create something new out of the ultimate classic, Flowers in the Attic, of course my curiosity was piqued.Th [...]


    5. Wow. This was insanely addictive, and had fast become one of my favourite reads of VC Andrews. The end of The canon Dollanganger novels had me wondering so much; especially about Chris's mind. This book certainly answered those; and Kristin's character grew on me really fast. I noticed the similarities between her and Cathy and Chris very soon after I started reading; and was engaged throughout the plot and horrified yet excited for what was to come. Christopher's Diary has certainly stayed with [...]


    6. NOTE: My review contains spoilers. If reading this via , they're individually marked. Elsewhere, they are not, and also there are spoilers for Flowers in the Attic, Garden of Shadows, and the forthcoming Echoes of Dollanganger and Secret Brother. Read at your own risk.P.S. Secrets of Foxworth contains mentalism/saneism/ableism/gaslighting, and SO MUCH SEXISM. Seriously, that diary is full of it.Well, that was pointless.I don't say that lightly. I spent 2013 catching up on the V. C. Andrews books [...]


    7. At first glance, and for most of the book, CHRISTOPHER'S DIARY: SECRETS OF FOXWORTH felt like a retelling of FLOWERS IN THE ATTIC. The book makes no secret of this, but present-day Kristin's story was little more than background noise as I revisited the original telling of FLOWERS I knew and loved so many years ago. Kristin is a distant relative of the Foxworths who lives in the shadow - literally and figuratively - of what happened in that house. Thanks to her father's protection, she seems to [...]


    8. Firstly let me state that I LOVE the original Flowers in the Attic series. Even the books that weren't actually written by V.C. Andrews. I have even read quite a few of the other series as well that can be a bit redundant, so I know the drill as far as these books go. I was very excited about this book because I'd hoped it would provide a fresh look at a story that I know backwards and forwards because I have reread the book so many times, similar to Midnight Sun by Stephenie Meyer. I was wrong, [...]


    9. Fans don't get too high of hopes. This isn't from Christopher's POV, not really. You relive the first half of Flowers In The Attic via his journal entries, and you don't really learn anything new. The main character is the girl who finds his journal in the rubble of Foxworth Hall. To see my whole review on this novel, please go here: memyshelfandi/2014/10/


    10. I am a confessed Dollanganger fan/obsessed/crazy(?) girl, so OF COURSE I HAD to read this. There's almost(?) nothing new, but reading about these beloved characters again, it just melts my heart all over.Kristin becomes so obsessed with their story that, even though I don't particularly love her character, I understand what drives her to it. I can't wait for the next book!



    11. I meanI don't know what to say that you don't already assume about this book. Actually, that may not pertain to younger readers, who may not know the original Foxworth series. For the adults, who, like me, read every damned V.C. Andrews book and was at least a little warped from it, you are well aware of how removed this ghost writing is from the actual V.C and even from the series' penned right after her death, although you could still sense the differences in thoseThe story involves a young gi [...]


    12. I bought and read this in one day. Andrew's stories (or more precisely, those of the ghostwriter) I tend to breeze through in a just a few hours. Though I will be the first to admit that I probably need to reread this at a slower pace.Those who think that this is a direct retelling of Flowers in the Attic will be a bit left behind. Without giving too much away, it is a story within a story: what happened after the events in "Seeds of Yesterday" to Foxworth Hall part Deux and the discovery of Chr [...]


    13. Here is an excerpt from my review: "If you're a fan of Flowers in the Attic and the subsequent books, you'll probably enjoy this new take on the story. But much of it will be familiar to you because it really is just a re-telling of what happened in the first book. There's not a whole lot of action happening in Kristin's world because she spends most of her time reading the diary. Kristin does have a boyfriend, Kane, and some nosy, gossipy friends, but that action doesn't take up a whole lot of [...]


    14. It's hard to know where to start with this review. First off. I've actually read a book by the ghost writer in his own name. And it wasn't bad. Which makes it even harder to understand why he writes so badly as. Virginia Andrews? Secondly he seems obsessed with pbreasts. He also makes all his teenage girls such deep thinkers. What teenagers compare losing their virginity. To crossing the Rio grande?Neiderman should never have been allowed to mess with Flowers in the attic.Nothing new has been le [...]


    15. I didn't expect this to be amazing. I wasn't surprised to feel too old to be impressed with it. I was willing to wade through lame YA angst for the promise of new insights to the beloved Flowers in the Attic of my youth. There are none. Like really. NONE. Bits of a surprise diary written by Christopher comprise many pages of this book, but they really just feel like reading condensed versions of the original book (and not written at ALL in a diary style; very much like a memoir where everything [...]


    16. I read the original series of Flowers in the Attic several years ago. This seems to follow the story okay. Make sure you have the next copy available to read it doesn't really end at the first book.


    17. Corny and cheesy as hell but what can I say, I was sucked into the VC Andrews in 7th grade and never managed to completely come out of the attic.


    18. This was the book that many V C Andrews fans dreaded Fuelled by their love of the original Flowers in the Attic , to have it rewritten in any form was almost sacrilege to the purist fan (myself included). However, as the release date approached the frenzy of excitement and curiosity overtook. What exactly would it be like ? Is this just another cash cow for the Andrews estate or will this actually be any good?Firstly, I have to say the main story isn't like expected, Christopher is still, like i [...]


    19. I have a bit of an emotional connection to the Dollanganger / Flowers in the Attic series. My sweet little old white haired church going perfect everyone in town loved her grandmother had loaned me her copies of the books when I was in the sixth grade. It was the first adult book series I’d read. Looking back, I’m not sure she’d ever gotten around to reading them herself or she might not have loaned them to me. I mean it’s possible she just found me so mature that she trusted me with the [...]


    20. Eh what absolute tripe! Oops! Mr Andrew Neiderman did it again. RUINED what Virginia Andrews created when she was still alive, only, this time he cashed in just because of the movies that have been made based on the series. Christopher’s Diary is a short novel MEANT to be written from the perspective of no one other than himself, Christopher Dollanganger. The eldest son of Corrine and Christopher Snr, and older brother of Cathy. However, a new character and new face has been written in; Kriste [...]


    21. I received a free copy of this book from GoodReads First Reads in exchange for a review. Thanks for choosing me but this feels like I'm writing a breakup note. I read the original Dollanganger series because my friends read it; I wasn't a fangirl but I didn't hate the series either. The original series excited me because I was able to share it with others and I was pleasantly surprised to see a return of the series. Unfortunately, this book disappointed me with its promises of a new perspective. [...]


    22. Kristin has always been harassed because it is known fact that she is a relative of the Foxworth's and there's rumors going around about what the Foxworth's did to a couple children over 50 years. Everyone tells her that she will grow into her Foxworth madness, but she isn't really sure what that madness is. Kristin's father gets a job that requires he demolish what is left of the Foxworth mansion and she tags along with him to look at what his job will require. There they find a metal box with [...]


    23. I was not expecting this to be a good solid book to “sink my teeth into”, I was expecting something along the lines of a fluffy beach read…. Imagine how bad a book has to be to not even hit that low benchmark!I liked the Flowers in the Attic series when I first read it in high school; I was completely absorbed by the tale. I re-read the books a few years ago to see what I’d think as an adult and they barely rated above a “meh”. STILL, I was curious about this book. Curiosity killed t [...]


    24. I'm definitely torn between a 3 and a 4 star so 3.5 it gets and I round down. I watched both flowers in the attic movie while reading this. lol Good refresher. One right after the other I like the 1987 one better though it made some big changes. Lots to say on the movies but this is a review on the book. Oh heck with it. Grandma more evil. Better acting. Better actors for characters. More feeling towards kids especially Cory. House matched the book way more. Looked more believable as in the plac [...]


    25. *yawn* I had stopped reading V.C. Andrews' books a long time ago. The ghostwriter hired by estate had, in my opinion, messed up some great writing and was taking some potentially great story lines right down the tubes. I had high hopes when I saw this book at my local library though. After all, the characters were already well developed - all the author had to do was retell the story from another point of view. I should have known that the he would mess it up. It started out promising enough - a [...]


    26. As an avid reader and lover of V.C. Andrews novels since I found my aunt's stash of V.C. Andrews books when I was eight in 1985, I have been in love with the Dollenganger family. When I read those books that tender age, (view spoiler)[I felt like I was right there growing up in the attic with the Dollenganger children. (hide spoiler)] I felt like I was in the book because they were so well written and they grabbed my attention right away. When the series ended, I was very sad. When I saw the new [...]


    27. Christopher's Diary: Secrets of Foxworth by V. C. AndrewsThis book is in Andrew's usual style of writing about children who have parental issues, in this case cruelty by the grandparents. I found the book quite similar to her other books such as Flowers in the Attic and The Unwelcomed Child. This installment of this series is about the diary of Christopher Dollanganger. The book didn't really offer any more insight to the overall plot than the previous books. It didn't even get to the end of the [...]


    28. I didn't even finish this! And that says a lot for me because I have read old V.C Andrews all throughout Junior High and her stories will always be dear to me. Flowers in the Attic will always be my favorite novel of all time. But this this needed to be stopped. The 'ghost writer' did not get the characters whatsoever. When I was reading Chris' 'diary', I felt as if it wasn't Chris. And when I got to thinking about it, remember how Chris's character was always so determined to become manly in f [...]


    29. I was 14 when I fell in love with VC Andrews. My love affair started with my sweet adrina. I read the flowers series, the Heaven series and the Dawn series. I lost interest with the Ruby series. I did not have high hopes for this book. curiosity won out to see how exactly they could add a book to a series 20 some years later and boy image glad it did. the book is well written. the premise is plausible. it's an amazing journey. I do not know if it is the same author that has been writing for VC a [...]
