Oh, nostalgia...

When I heard this book had been released, I immediately purchased it. I was a huge fan of the Sweet Valley series as a pre-teen, and having a chance to see how they'd grown up (now at almost exactly my own age) was an exciting prospect. The book delivered what I had hoped for: a return to my childhood "friends." As with meeting old friends in real life, this book allowed me to see how they had grown. The characters changed in ways I could never expect, and yet somehow stayed true to those people I had once known.

Let's face it. If you're looking for a great literary masterpiece, this will not be your cup of tea. It's an extension of the original teen literature, written for the now grown-up fans. There is sex, drama, and more drama. Some of it a bit far-fetched, yes (even a lot far-fetched). But isn't that what the original series always was?

I got what I expected. And for what it is, it's great.

Does this mean I'm old?

If you’re of a certain age, you grew up with Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield, the beautiful twins of idyllic Sweet Valley, California, who have been immortalized in hundreds of books and even a television show. It just so happens that I’m of this age, and listening to Sweet Valley Confidential: Ten Years Later was like being reunited with old friends. Finding out what happened to the twins and their inner circle was actually more exciting than my high school reunion (thanks for ruining that milestone, Facebook), courtesy of narrator January Lavoie. And even if you didn’t obsessively read the Sweet Valley High books as a teen, this adult novel stands alone as just plain fun…and really entertaining.

I'm nostalgic about Sweet Valley too...

But this book is really bad. Tedious and bad. Filled with lame descriptions of all of the Sweet Valley cast of characters, detailing a Jessica and Elizabeth scenario that I would never wish on America's favorite identical twins. I wanted to like it, but alas I cannot recommend it.

Sweet Nostalgia

I was the biggest Sweet Valley High fan when I was a teenager so I nearly burst when I saw this was available in audio. It's not a perfect title in that you realise how basic the writing is which you would not have realised 15 years ago however I thoroughly enjoyed this and relished all the scandal that had gone in the then years we've been missing the Wakefield twins. The narration is suited to the story and characters.
