Petals on the Wind (Dollanganger Series #2) by V. C. Andrews, Leslie Charleson, Leslie Charleson

For Carrie, Chris and Cathy the attic was a dark horror that would not leave their minds.

Of course mother had to pretend they didn't exist and grandmother was convinced they had the devil in them.

But that wasn't their fault. Was it?

Cathy knew what to do. She knew it was time to show her mother and grandmother that the pain and terror of the attic could not be forgotten...Show them. Show them -- once and for all.

I love the story - I've been reading this story when the desire strikes for a decade now - but there are so, SO many spelling errors in this book. Words are missing, or are replaced by characters such as dollar signs. How does someone mess up even quotation marks? I'm actually frustrated trying to read in some passages.

If I were rating just the book I'd give 5 stars, but the errors and symbols in the text are very anoying. Its frustrating getting into a good read and having random symbols and missing words show up! Please fix this!!!

Intriguing tale and part 2 of the Dollanganger series. The nook version is troublesome, though. There are so many spelling and typing errors that it is literally distracting. Several passages were butchered so bad that it's impossible to decipher what was me crazy, but I like to be able to read what I paid for, and the numerous errors prevented that. To give you but one example, the title of the book as it shows on the nook is "Petals Won the Wind." They couldn't even get the title right!

I was dying to read this, since I just finished reading the 1st book but I found that there were typos on, like, every chater! Honestly, who the hell editing this and why are there missjng words and $$$ in the middle of nowhere?! I am outraged, there are missing words and it getting so irritating and the editing is so bad up to the point where I couldn't even understand what was happening! Honestly, save yourself the trouble and buy yourself a physical copy of this book instead of wasting your time trying to find out what $$$ means. But I am just shocked that these people didn't notice, like, don't you read over your work and how can you possibly mistaken the work "the" for "$$$". No joke, that literally happened in this book. Other than that, great, but someone please fix this!!!

Terrible book with a strange and twisted plot. I purchased the Nook edition and there were so many typo's it was incredibly difficult to read. I started to highlight all the mistakes but gave up as there were too many.

I was so excited to read this sequel to Flowers In The Attic that I could not hardly wait to get this book! It was not as good as the first but definitely worth the read to find out what happened in the lives of the children after they escaped the attic. My only complaint ( and it's a biggie!) Who in the heck edited this book? I definitely hope they were not getting paid for their so-called editing skills because they did a poor job! It was so bad and so many mistakes and $ signs where there were supposed to be words that it made it distracting at times to even kerp reading. I thought 'really' they must have gotten a high school drop out to do this job! I hope this is only on the ebook Nook version and not in the paperback. How can mistakes in grammer, spelling and typos like this happen and get published like this? I could only give 4 stars because and it really should have been 3 1/2 but it did not give me that option!

I thought that this was a great follow up from Flowers in the Attic. I loved how reading the first 2 of this series was like just reading one story. I will be reading the rest of the series later on cause it left me wondering where else this story can go. I def recommend this book to others and have a few of my friends already reading Flowers in the Attic..

It was hard to enjoy this book because of all the typos. Save yourself a headache and get the paper book.

Did anyone proofread this before publication? There are so many typos, misspellings, etc. And they are very distracting. I am disappointed that Nook woul sell such a shoddy product.

While I am trying to enjoy the story, I can't even stay focused because of the mass typos on the Nook version! Horrible!

Overall I enjoyed this book but there were so many errors that it got distracting and at times it was impossible to read.

I loved Petals on the Wind. Full of sex, vengeance, death and drama. I find Cathy irritating sometimes just as I did in Flowers in the Attic. I still love it though. But, if you are buying the book as an ebook, beware that there are a ton of screw ups. Dollar signs and numbers where letters should be, run on sentences, misspelled word, etc. It doesn't mess up the story but is a distraction.

I bought this hoping to relive one of my favorite stories from yeas ago but I was very upset about the quality of this ebook. The spelling mistskes and instead of words you just got $$$$$$$$? It was very disappointing. I've never tried to return a book, but this copy makes me want to. The story itself is amazing, but if you can,t read it than its not worth it

The story is great. This book was my favorite out of the whole series. The errors that are in the Nook version are horrible! Misspellled words, symbols where words should be, etc. Horrible! Someone didn't do a good job editing this version.

Wow. Where do I begin? First and foremost, I love the series. Let there be no mistake about that! The Dresdan Dolls were and have been my favorite of all from the amazing mind and imagination of VC Andrews. The typo's in this E-book are just so frustrating to read through. The names are mispelled, the sudden $$Money signs$$ appearring out of nowhere hust ruins the entire read for me. To have to sort through and to figure out what the word is *supposed* to be, borders on the rediculous. Surely, they could have found a better word editor than the one that they used! I will be getting the next in line of this series and hope that it is better edited than this one was. Hopefully, there won't be page after page of worthless character key strokes that are truly distracting from what is a really good book. I would have given this book 4 stars, but the poor editing equates to a 3 star review. Kadi'

I loved the second book in the series just as much as the first one.

In the beautiful lands of greenglenna, virginia, there lived a stunning young woman who goes by the name of Catherine "Dahl" Dollanganger- Foxworth. Once the daughter of a young gorgeous couple (Corrine and Christopher Foxworth), and the loving older sister of two twins -Cory and Carrie and the younger sister of Chris Jr., her life was made to be perfect...that is, until her perfect father dies in a crash and she and her siblings have to live in an attic with their rich, evil grandmother. Just escaping the wretched house of a woman who hates them, the children (excluding the one killed at the grandmothers house, cory) find themselves at a doctors house. Cathy soon falls in love with the doctor and a few other guys including her mothers new husband. As cathy journies through a painstaking path to love and self peace, she stops along the way for a treat. She bows to get revenge on the woman who hurt her the most. Her dear old mommy. Taking everything she has one by one, cathy shows her mom what real betrayal and revenge is-- and she wont stop until she gets her fill. Oh yes. Revenge is sweet...but the bitter....

I could not put this book down! What an amazing plot and in depth characters! WOW is the only word for it!

I just finished this book the other day after reading piece by piece for over a month. Andrew's books all seem to have so much content that you really have to stop and contemplate what you just read before moving on to the next part. This book is incredible and extremely emotional. Of course seeing as that my favorite character was Carrie, I was a bit torn up towards the end but never the less the final chapter wrapped it up and sort of healed all the open wounds. In this book we meet the amazing doctor Paul and Henny and see what happens to the despicable mother Corrine Winslow. You'll be on the edge of your seat the entire time! Cathy's character really grows as an adult in this book and I am so proud of her (haha). I would compeletly reccommend this book for all ages (mind you there is a lot of sexual content), and I can not wait to read onto the next.

V.C. Andrews is one of my favorite authors. I oculdn't put it down. Me and my sister enjoyed this series so much. Its so twisted and ingeniously plotted. The names of the books go so well with books. Everything twists and turns into a great story teller to read over and over. Me and my sister are going to read the series again. I'm 13 and this book got me hooked. My grandma, mom, bght it and i read the fisrt couple chapters and i didnt want to stop reading. This series shook me at times and made me sad at the same time. I will always love this series. Greatest series I've ever read!

I read this for the 1st time just after it was published, when I was about 10. Since then I have re-read it countless times, always finding something new. I just read it again as a married adult and found so much I never noticed before. This is VC Andrews at her very best, and I never thought Flowers in the Attic could be bested. Yet this book, number 2 in the Dollanganger series, never ceases to captivate me. The theme of the story seems to be revenge and redemption, as Cathy works hard to prove she is not unworthy, yet at the same time seeks out vengeance for the many crimes committed against her, and her family. I loved the whole book- there were no slow parts IMO. I felt as if I WERE Cathy and fell in love with Paul, Julian and Bart, and always Chris. I didn't care for the next 2 books in the series as much, perhaps because this book was so good. I still think it would've made an incredible mini-series, but Hollywood messed up and tried to make a movie of the 1st book. In any case, this is definitely the best series Andrews wrote, and luckily she wrote each of the books herself. I still read the VC Andrews books that are written by the author chosen by her family after VC died, but never have I been as enthralled with a book as with Petals on the Wind. I've read this book more than any other in existence and it remains my favorite, no matter how many books I read. Definitely a keeper!
