‘An artfully twisted modern fairytale’
The Times Magazine
‘Beautifully written, macabre and thoroughly nasty… it is evocative of the nasty fairy tales like Little Red Riding Hood and The Babes in the Wood, with a bit of Victorian Gothic thrown in. … What does shine through is her ability to see the world through a child’s eyes’
‘Makes horror irresistible’
Glasgow Sunday Mail
‘A gruesome saga… the storyline is compelling, many millions have no wish to put this down’
‘There is strength in her books – the bizarre plots matched with the pathos of the entrapped’

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
This story felt like it was all over the place, I could not keep up. And the characters from the first two books seemed way to different to be believed they were the same people no matter how much time had past.
A far cry from flowers in the attic what happen?
Could not finish this one disappointing.

It certainly has a different feel to it compared to the first two books in the series. We get to see Cathy and Chris in the periphery of the story only, which can be frustrating at times as you want to know what they are thinking.
Bart isn’t a very likeable character even before he meets John Amos Jackson. I know he is only nine when we first get to know him, but he acts like the world has been cruel to him up until then. Whereas, in reality, he has had everything his heart could wish for, especially when you consider the events that Cathy and Chris have had to endure. He becomes even worse once all the secrets start to come out of the closet and into the mind of an impressionable little boy.
I can’t say I was that enamoured by this book. In fact, I don’t even remember reading it before. Has it been changed or rewritten, as I know I’ve read the entire series before now, but none of this felt familiar at all?
Cathy and Chris’ reactions to everything were frustrating; there would be large periods of time passing by where nothing seemed to be done about their son’s very worrying behaviour. There also appeared to be a lot of story we weren’t privy to. There would be references to conversations that hadn’t happened in the book but really needed to have been included for the book’s continuity and fluidity. This just added to the frustration of the adults’ behaviour.
I don’t remember ever having been disappointed by one of the books in the series, but this is how I feel after reading this. So for me through fresh eyes and more critical eyes now that I write reviews for books I read, this is only a three-star read.
I’ve read them all a few times over the years. But think you only need to read this one once!
The story bounces back in the next instalment!!
