    This best-selling thriller has captivated over 4.5 million readers of all ages; V.C. Andrews’ fans know her mixture of vivid characters and ominous moods is highly addictive. Flowers in the Attic is the first book in a gripping series featuring the Dollangagers - a family haunted by a remorseless, demonic history. This tale of obsession, also made into a haunting movie, has made V.C. Andrews’ name synonymous with the best in dark suspense.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Flowers in the Attic to be better than the print version?

    I never read the book but I saw the movie many, many years ago. It was almost a new story for me because it has been so long.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Even though I knew the final outcome, I listened to almost the entire book non-stop to hear what would happen next.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I was unwilling to stop listening because I wanted the children's pain to be over. By not listening, it was like I was prolonging their imprisonment.


    Any additional comments?

    It is a very disturbing story that I hope has no basis in reality.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It is never a waste of time to listen to any book in Nevada Barr's Anna Pigeon Series, but you miss so much of the beauty of the backdrop for each story (the National Park), that is it almost a crime to abridge it. Hold out for the unabridged version.


    If you’ve listened to books by Nevada Barr before, how does this one compare?

    Hard to compare this book to the others I have listen too (all of them) because I always opt for the unabridged if available and the abridged version disappoints.

    LAPD lieutenant detective Decker and his wife, Rina, have willingly welcomed fifteen-year-old Gabriel Whitman into their home. While the enigmatic teen seems to be adapting easily, Decker knows only too well the secrets adolescents keep - witnessed by the tragic suicide of another teen, Gregory Hesse, a student at Bell and Wakefield, one of the city’s most exclusive prep schools. Gregory’s mother refuses to believe her son shot himself and convinces Decker to look deeper. What he finds disturbs him. The gun used in the tragedy was stolen....

    "Least favorite Faye Kellerman story ever! Skip it."

    Story
    Would you try another book from Faye Kellerman and/or Mitchell Greenberg?

    Yes, but not based on this story. I have read all her other Detective Decker books.


    What could Faye Kellerman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The dialog between Jasmine and Gabe was boring, uninteresting, unbelievable and for the most part, irrelevant to the story which dragged.


    Which character – as performed by Mitchell Greenberg – was your favorite?

    Gabe, when not with Jasmine.


    What character would you cut from Gun Games?

    Jasmine


    Any additional comments?

    This story reminded me more of a teen book except for some of the more explicit descriptions near the end which I would not recommend to teen readers. The story did not grab me and if I had been reading it, I would not have finished it at all.
