Loved "Flowers in the Attic" despite the unnatural turn of events. The story is chilling yet heartbreaking; it is depicted beautifully; I truly felt as though I was trapped in the attic.. Did not like "Petals on the Wind" because the protagonist changed a lot. Also did not like the male characters intoduced nor the timeline of the story.

These books are very good, and it's hard to put down. I just felt very depressed after I was done with the series, so I recommend a light, easy to read book after this.

I'm a 14 year-old girl and I absolutely LOVE this book. I just finished Flowers in the Attic, and have just started on Petals in the Wind. I had seen the movie a few years ago so I knew it was a great story, but I had absolutely no idea it would be THIS good!!! I just can't put it down! It took me just four days to finish Flowers in the Attic, and I enjoyed it so much! While some people have said they feel that the brother-sister relationship was strange, and have also voiced other complaints, I feel that this book is pure genius and every detail in the book, like the relationship between Cathy and Chris, was added for pure entertainment and to help move the story along.

i am a 13 year old girl who picked up this book and thought it would be an interesting book-a different idea. But once i started getting to the middle of it i was very disturbed. I t was so creepy how the brother and sister actually loved each other in the way boyfriend and girlfriedns ove each other. I WOULD NOT reccomend this book to any people 13 and under

This dual book was sensational! I vaguely remember "Flowers" from when I was in Jr High. I never finished the series then, not really sure why. Glad I chose to re-purchase this series! The "Flowers" & "Petals" were so good I found myself thinking about the characters and what would happen next as soon as I stopped reading. It took me less than a week for both books and I am not a fast reader. The torment Chris & Cathy dealt with was horrid and tragic. Their suffering continued into the second book. I do not want to give away anything else for fear I will spoil it for someone else. Happy reading!!

I read all of these books years ago, I enjoyed them back then and am going to read them again. I saw the movie and was not happy with it, read these books, you wont be able to put them down!

Flowers in the Attic is definitely an incredibly chilling story that is told beautifully by Andrews. It's the kind of infamous classic that is unforgettable and will leave you haunted by the unique story. The story is mostly surrounded by a heartless mother's actions that will impact her four children for the rest of their lives; every single one of them equally yet in so many different ways. Petals on the Wind showed the core of the main troubles that progressed and continued to envelop the children as their lives changed and they became adults. Mainly cause and effect of how their dear mother's actions had so severely impacted them. I felt extremely saddened by Petals on the Wind and nostalgic for Cathy, the main character. It was a very depressing story. I have yet to read the rest of the series. Both Flowers in the Attic and Petals on the Wind are both extremely emotional stories I found, yet so spectacular. I like Flowers better, though. .

This novel follows the story of four siblings, the main character being the second oldest, by the name of Cathy, born into a very rich family, with a loving mother and father. When the family is struck by the tragic death of their father, the mother, desperate to return to her rich, trouble-free life, moves in with her own detested mother and ill father, in the hopes of winning her father's favor and becoming the heir to his fortune. In doing this, she hides away her four children into an attic within the parents' mansion, on behalf that the father disapproved of her marriage, and would perhaps put to end their chances of inheritance, continuously insuring the children that any day the sick grandfather would meet his end. Throughout the story, Cathy and her brother, the eldest of the siblings, develop a strange, and not a little creepy, relationship, and an obsessive one, at that. As the children grow, Cathy becomes obsessive upon the idea of vengeance, (the reason I am incapable of recording in the case that the reader yet wishes to read this novel) unrealistic, and unconvincing. In her hatred, she incessantly describes the blame that she puts forth upon her enemies, in that it was 'their' fault for all of the faults in her life, when, quite honestly, they were all her own. The main character also becomes a racy figure, throwing herself upon every man that she encounters (goodness knows you can't love that many people!), and also (I'm not lying on this) blaming her enemies yet again for her behavior. Not the best novel, unrealistic, in all, and poor in writing style, in the case that V.C. Andrews continuously over-explains certain aspects, so as the reader is incapable of making their own assumptions, bestowing a sense of bland predictability upon the reader. I, personally, would not recommend it, although it be the reader's right and entitlement to form their own opinions.

I thought this book was amazing I finished both of them in four days, although the romance was kind of strange I did feel extremely bad for Chris, not to spoil anything but if your looking for something that will pass the time i would definitely read this book. I would recommend it to anyone who likes creepy romances and what we would do for money.

i had my doubts about reading this book.... my friend recommened it to me .. she could barely put the book down... when i first started reading the book i have to say it didn't intrigue me as much as I wated it to. Although later on I started loving the book and getting more addicted. The characters can have you hating them in one in minute and then loving the next. You go through this journey it Cathy,Christopher,Cory,and Carrie as if you were one of the children in the attic. Flowers in the Attic and Petals in the Wind tell you about the four little flowers that were trapped in a attic for the reason that the only person they depended on,their mother was blinded by money and fortune. It tells the tale of how when the flowers are deprived their perspective of life changes completely and how they have no one else to depend on but themselves.

This book a complete page turner. In every chapter theres something new to discover about the characters and the whole book is just worth its money. The book has vivid description and is just a wonderful book throughout every page. You get very into the book even at the first chapter.
