Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Virginia Andrews: 'Beautifully written, macabre and thoroughly nasty... it is evocative of the nasty fairy tales like Little Red Riding Hood and The Babes in the Wood, with a bit of Victorian Gothic thrown in. ... What does shine through is her ability to see the world through a child's eyes' Daily Express 'Makes horror irresistible' Glasgow Sunday Mail 'A gruesome saga... the storyline is compelling, many millions have no wish to put this down' Ms London 'There is strength in her books - the bizarre plots matched with the pathos of the entrapped' The Times

About the Author

Virginia Andrews lived in Norfolk, Virginia, studied art and worked as a fashion illustrator, commercial artist and portrait painter. Flowers in the Attic, based on a true story, was her first novel. It became an immediate bestseller on both sides of the Atlantic when it was first published in 1979. Virginia Andrews died in 1986, leaving a considerable amount of unpublished work.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've always loved this amazing novel! February 4, 2002
Format:Unknown Binding
Its hard to review this book because I don't want to give away any of its twisted plot that never ceases to amaze me each time I read this. My mother bought this when I was about ten years old and I snuck it to my room to read late at night. Now its not suitable reading for a kid but I found this to be amazingly frightening in a way that a family could be this strange Its a Gothic novel. Twisted characters... and its quite bizarre. Its also a heart-felt romance as well.
When you start reading this, you must understand that nothing is what it seems. This is what made the VC Andrews books before she died so incredibly amazing and this is one of her very best. I read this once about every five years and I still enjoy it every bit as much as that first time as a kid. Simply put, amazing!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best V.C. Andrews Book of them All! May 20, 2005
By Justice
Format:Unknown Binding
I love this book! It's just so creepy, so engrossing, so much fun. It also has an odd and compelling beauty and powerfully evokes the passing of time, the dynamics of a deeply dysfunctional family, and the fractured character of a young woman who must come to terms with the bizarre reality of her life-if she can find out what that is. Audrina is a strong, sympathetic, interesting character, and all the characters in the book are well drawn and very intriguing. Audrina is one of the most admirable characters Andrews ever created-she is compassionate, courageous, and a true survivor. I think she's also the nicest of the Andrews' characters. I really like her.

I first read this book at 13,and I didn't guess the ending, and was utterly shocked, but I've reread it since and I think adults would. Actually I know adults would-I lent it to some, and they figured it out, but still enjoyed the story. I won't give it away here though.

This book tells the story of Audrina, who is a beautiful child born to a ruined Southern aristocratic family (they never explain how it was ruined), living in a run down mansion with her older cousin Vera, her father Damian, her mother Lucietta and her aunt Ellsbeth. These are the characters in the beginning, although more come into the story over the course of 400 pages. As usual, most of the characters are in possession of movie-star looks, except aunt Ellsbeth, who is somewhat frumpy, but mostly by choice.

My favorite character is Vera, which may surprise readers. Hey, I'm not excusing her actions, and I would not want to know her in real life, but I love her! She is the most perverse, bizarre, cruel, violent, unrealistic character in all of Andrews' books. For that matter, in a lot of books.

Even though Petals on the Wind and Dark Angel tie for 1st place on my charts on best V. C. Andrews book, I would have to say that My Sweet Audrina is #2 all the way. I could believe it!!! I remember when I found the hardcover in a used book store and was shocked at the cover, I realized that this was the only V. C. novel that was published as a hardcover first and then a paper back, rather than paperback originals like all the others. I was glad to find this book, I cherished it as a rare treasure, but strange enough, I never really read it for two years. I've read all her other books, and the dollanganger and casteel series over and over because that's her real books, not those silly cutler, landry books. But anyway, I knew this was a 100% genuine Virginia Andrews novel, so I know it would be great. Boy, I was so shocked!!! It was superb! Usually V. C. tells a horror story that has the heroine (except if there be thorns is narrated by boys) telling the story about family secrets and lies. My Sweet Audrina has all that as well, but it has something else that no other V. C. Andrews novel has, it just is different. It has more sex, much more violence, more swearing, it a lot more creepy and hold forever to it's gloomy atmostphere. Vera was one of a kind, she was a great villain, and I loved the character Lamar Rensdale, You never here a V. C. Andrews novel describe sex in so much detail, but this one is so different, that characters a SO weird, Vera, Lamar, Damian, Ellsbeth, Arden, and of course, Audrina. Audrina was different too, she didnt' posess the fire that Heaven and Cathy had, but she had her own sense of strength. END

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Stars-- nearly flawless August 22, 2006
Format:Unknown Binding
Never having read any of V.C. Andrew's work I was both skeptical and curious when her name kept appearing during searches for "gothic horror" type literature. What I found in My Sweet Audrina was something terrifying, engrossing, and very psychologically complex; to the point of having teh story stay with me long after I finished the last page.

Audrina Whitefern is a young girl who doesn't go to school, has no friends, and is constantly under the watchful eye of her overprotective father. Secondly, Audrina is not the first young girl in the Whitefern family by such a pretty name--but the second, after her older sister, the much reverred "First Audrina" was killed in the woods near their home.

Everyone in the family knows the secret surrounding the First Audrina' death. In addition to the second Audrina and her father, they are also joined by her mother, aunt, and cousin Vera. Each of them also knows the secret, something so horrifying and unbelievable you won't want to be spoiled until you discover it for yourself.

And as the second Audrina begins to question her past, her life, and the strange happenings around their gloomy victorian mansion, the secret is unveiled, and nothing will ever be the same. This tale of stifling parental love, rape and abuse, and lies and deceit all comes together in the end, leaving the reader with a haunting conclusion that ensures the legacy of Whitefern will continue.
