The author tells this story from two points of view . The first is from Eugene , the son of Dr. Lawerence. He has been long suffering test subject for his father. He is a little crazy and shows it through out . He has been molested by a sick nurse and is a lab rat for his father . At first you are a little scared of him and want to know what the heck is wrong with him. But as you read you start to really feel for him an the torture he has gone through and the pain and agony.
The second point of view is Justine's the new girl in town. Her parents and her have moved from New York and she just doesn't know what is going on. The kids are acting like stepford children . They don't do anything for fun and she can't understand why. Until she meets the doctor and start taking the vitamins . She starts to feel different and forgetting everything she likes , like her music. As she figures out what is happening she just goes along with it. She fricken drove me crazy . She was like oh if I tell my mom and dad , they will understand and fix it . Well guess what kind of hard to fix something when they are under the influence . I kind of just wanted to slap some sense into her. I mean lets not do something ourselves lets just tell our parents who in turn are going to the well basically cult leader.Read more ›
This story starts off with an amazing prologue so I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen. I loved the Eugene part of the book. They were really great and I loved trying to figure out what was going on with him. He was a wonderful character for a book like this. It is obvious what Dr. Lawrence is doing in the rest of the town, but not as much with Eugene. He is kind of crazy and it is kind of gross at some points, but in a way that I enjoy. If you don't like really horrifying things, really cringe worthy things, you probably want to skip this book.
The rest of the story is told from Justine's point of view. Justin and her family have just moved to Elysian Fields and they have to get with the program quickly. Justine knows something is up, but then she starts to be affected by everything and starts forgetting what her old life was like. She does have the one other girl in town who tries to help her not succumb to everything, but man Justine annoyed me. So like everyone in town is being controlled by the doctor, but Justine is so stupid. Once she realizes this she thinks oh I will just tell my parents. They will listen to me even though they are like zombies and totally not themselves anymore. I mean they are my parents of course they will listen to me! She was told again and again that she has to try and blend in, and she just doesn't really try very hard. Even once she is afraid of what will happen she is still like whatever. I expected more from her. If you were in her situation would you really be so blase about it?Read more ›
The storyline is not a very original one having watched horror films with the exact same theme, but it didn't make it any less enjoyable.
As soon as Justine and her family move to the idyllic Elysian Fields it is obvious that everything there as well as the families are just to perfect. Everyone is very friendly and happy. All the teenagers are nice, no mood swings what so ever and are generally happy to come straight home from school to study or do house chores.
Being a parent I have to admit that the thought of my children doing everything they were told without any argument is one that is very tempting. Unfortunately they are more like robots and have no personality and as much as it would make life so much easier at times, I would never want my children to be like that.
Everyone seems to be very much controlled by the doctor. The parts in the story which are set in his house with his son Eugene and nurse were very disturbing ones. I have to admit it certainly sent shivers down my spine.
Perfect Little Angels is a great mix of horror and suspense. It certainly turned out to be a very gripping read. My only issue is though I have to admit to finding the ending a bit weak. The story really seemed to be building up to something and I thought I would end the novel on a high but instead I was left feeling slightly disappointed with the very tidy ending. Otherwise than that though it's a very entertaining read.

This is not a type of book I'd normally read, however, I was intrigued, disturbed and even amused throughout this book. I'm glad I gave it a chance.Published 13 months ago by Tina
Probably best to avoid if you're faint-hearted; this novel adheres so firmly to the "evil doctor" horror genre that you might feel like washing your hands after reading it. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Aviva
