I was expecting this book to be really really gripping. I mean, VC Andrews almost has a cult following and the subject matter certainly seemed interesting enough.
Her writing itself was pretty good, very easy to read and interesting enough. But it just dragged on and on with not much of anything happening at all. And there's four other books in the series! ... I shudder to think.
I'd be curious to read a stand alone novel by her but another series. It's just too much. Too too much.
