Christopher Dollanganger was 14 when he and his younger siblings - Cathy and the twins, Cory and Carrie - were locked away in the attic of Foxworth Hall, prisoners of their mother’s greedy inheritance scheme.

Better than I thought it would be!
I buy every book by this author and have since back in the 80s! This book it much better than I thought it would be. I thought it would probably be boring as it was a diary and most diaries are, however I was pleasantly surprised. This is an actual novel. I love how there were two narrators. The female narrator, Rebekkah Ross, read the 1st person parts and Kirby Heybone read the parts of Christopher's diary.
This turned out to be an actual novel! Kristen Masterwood' is a cousin of the Foxworths. Kristen's dad is contracted to tear down the old Foxworth Hall (after 2 fires) and clean the grounds up to sell the land off. It is here where Kristen's dad discovers an old box and let's Kristnen open it. This is where Kristen discovers and old book which turned out to be a diary written by Christopher Dollanganger back in the attic days.
Until now, the town has only had rumors as to what happened so any years ago. Now through Kristen's eyes we venture into the past and hear the truth according to Christopher. Kristen is consumed by this diary and the rest you have to read to find out what else is learned...
I did enjoy this book. The author VC Andrews, did a great job writing it in my opinion. As always, I wasn't disappointed. The way the book was written, I sat down and listened to this story all in one day! Both of the narrators did a great job reading & delivering this story to us with all their voices. I found this book to be very entertaining!
By the way... VC Andrews was the 1st authors book I read after turning 18 and being on my own. Flowers in the attic was so good, it made me a VC Andrews fan for life!

I am not one to give reviews, much less bad reviews, but I feel ripped off, the half of the story is what we knew, no secrets revealed, the other half is about a teenager in the present time that expresses her self as my great grandma would, but the worst part is that NOTHING HAPPENS!! Just ramblings about a rich boyfriend, and some other nonsense. I loved VC Andrews because her books were filled with outrageous and unexpected twists and turns ...absolutely nothing happends . I have to literally force myself to finish listening to this nonsense / the performances the girl was upbeat and entertaining the Chrispher voice put me to sleep Every time. Sorry really bad overall
