Publisher's Summary

V. C. Andrews has enthralled millions with her suspenseful, gothic family sagas, including the best-selling Dollanganger series that began with Flowers in the Attic. Now, one of her strangest, most beloved classics, My Sweet Audrina - a haunting story of love and deceit, innocence and betrayal, and the suffocating power of parental love - is soon to be a major Lifetime movie event.

The idea of her sister hovered above them all.

Audrina fiercely desired to be as good as her sister. She knew her father could not love her as he loved that other girl, for her sister was so special, so perfect - and dead.

Upstairs in a locked room awaited her sister's clothes and dolls, her animals and games - and her sacred rocking chair. Now Audrina will rock and rock and rock to reclaim all of her gone sister's special gifts.

And then finally she'll learn the secrets everyone else knows but her.

    Audiobook narrator in my own right, I'm a voracious listener of anything & everything. I'm a sponge, absorbing entertainment & the craft!

    "Great Book! TERRIBLE NARRATOR!!!!"
    Any additional comments?

    When I saw that "My Sweet Audrina" was finally available as an audiobook, my heart leapt! Such a fantastic book deserves to be on audio, as does the rest of V.C. Andrews early work! When I saw that Rebekkah Ross was the narrator, my leaping heart just about stopped...from disappointment. I've listened to her readings of other V.C. Andrews books (or should I say Andrew Neiderman books) and found myself irritated by her high-school student drone. She hardly does any voices to begin with, but she whines along as though it's okay for an audiobook narrator to read the book without the tiniest bit of performance in her voice. I began listening today, thinking perhaps a book actually written by Andrews (and not Neiderman-blah) might redeem Ross as a narrator in my ears. I'd only gone in about 30 minutes and I knew I would never be able to handle another 13 hours of it! Such a great novel-ruined! Never mind that she can pronounce "objets d'art" but not "cupola", I'm bothered more by the lazy way she says "Uh-dree-nuh" instead of "Odd-ree-nuh". Perhaps that's being too finicky, but if I have to listen to it for 13-plus hours, I deserve to have the name pronounced the way the introduction to the audiobook says it should be, let alone how anyone I've ever heard say the name has pronounced it. My final verdict is, read the book, it's great. DO NOT buy this on audio. The narration is terrible and will ruin the experience!!

    "Even better in audio!"

    My Sweet Audrina has always been my favorite, favorite book. I haven't read the book in a decade or so, so listening to it after so much time was a real treat. This is a dark story like all VC Andrews stories. Audrina is the second and less perfect Audrina. She lives with her parents, aunt and evil cousin Vera.

    Vera is my absolute favorite character. She's evil yet I want to like her. She's been dealt the worst hand out of them all. Audrina is a niave goody two shoes with a swiss cheese memory. The first Audrina died before the second Audrina was born and she can do no wrong whereas Vera does everything wrong, everything.

    The narrator does such an excellent job with the story. She's clear, great quality and inflection. She adds more to this already amazing story.

    Loved it! Loved it! Loved it!

    "Depressing Disappointment, Victimized Women"
    How could the performance have been better?

    The actual narration was done pretty well.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Utter disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    The book was very repetitive, simply written and full of weak female characters. Each woman in the book seems to play the victim. They each depend on a man's love to survive and to be truly happy. V.C. Andrews tries to keep the main character's secret a mystery. Even though I figured out the secret very quickly, there were still a few horrible surprises about how truly evil certain people were. I had hope for the characters and story, until the book ended in total disappointment. The book was so depressing, I think it actually reflected in my mood, I could not wait for it to end so I could feel happy again. What a waste.

    I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!

    "HIT ME MUCH HARDER AFTER 25+ YEARS!"
    If you could sum up My Sweet Audrina in three words, what would they be?

    Haunting, Twisted, Sad


    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Sweet Audrina?

    When Audrina learns the truth..


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I cant choose...I liked it all...


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    They did, and I thought it was pretty good until now...I had forgotten this stories true line, I guess I had forgotten more of the book then I thought...but 25+ yrs is a long time to go with a re-read...and I remember reading this book multiple times in my late teens, early twenties...I just really remembered liking it a lot!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this story years ago and still do, but my feelings have definitely changed...Papa was so mean, and being a female in that household was bad news, no matter who you were...I felt so bad for Audrina especially...her life was stolen from her...she was so mentally abused..made to be weak...and most certainly traumatized....But she got strong, I just wish she would have left...

    GREAT GOTHIC FICTION AND A CLASSIC! VERY WELL NARRATED! I RECOMMEND!!

    "Pretty Good"

    Starts off slow and repetitive but it eventually sucks you in to where you don't want to stop listening. V.C. Andrews is a great author. I don't like the narrators man/boy voice but other than that the narration was easy to listen to. The story is full of lies, deceit, death, and love. You follow the main character as she tries to i puzzle her strange, secluded life. There's not so much action in this book as there is family moments and a lot of discussion about the main characters confusion about why she is the way she is and why the things in her life are the way they are.

    "Cheesy and sort of disappointing"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It's so repetitive, the whole "the first and best Audrina" is mentioned way too many times.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I'm sure anyone who reads this will have suspected the ending, it was good and creative...but I feel like the story attempts to take you on too many twists and turns only for a sort of predictable outcome.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I enjoyed the narrator, she didn't bother me as much as some others who've reviewed the story. Though it did bother me a bit the way she pronounced "Audrina"...I feel like she completely forgot the "u" in the name and referred to her as "Adrina" the entire time.


    Did My Sweet Audrina inspire you to do anything?

    I loved VC Andrews "Flowers In The Attic" series. And since I read those I've always wanted to read this book...but now I kind of feel let down by it. It was a bit cheesy and predictable, I guess I expected/hoped for more.

    Love the narrator but the story line took too long to get to the point. Dragged on & on.. not her best book.
