That was a Whole Lotta Nothin!!!!

Based on the fact that Books 1 and 2 were some of the WORST I’ve ever read, I had extremely low expectations for Book 3 but I persevered anyway because I wanted to know the story of how Cory survived. The good news is: if that’s your goal too, you can completely skip Books 1 & 2… trust me, they are NOT worth your time and really have no connection to Book 3. It makes me wonder: how is this really even a series??

Less than 1% of this book was good… and I think that’s generous! I was genuinely interested in Cory’s storyline – What would happen to him? Would he talk about his experiences? Would he recover? Would there be an investigation into where he came from? I wanted to know all about it… but that’s IT! NOTHING ELSE WAS GOOD NOR INTERESTING!

The story of the angry petulant teenager mourning her brother who died in an accident was pointless and uninteresting. Her budding teenage romance, her life in high school, her Grandpa wanting to turn Cory into Willy 2.0… all skippable. It was boring, tedious, dumb and completely mind-numbing. Is all Young Adult fiction this bad? It was pure drivel.

My biggest question: Why even bother creating a pretext to “frame” Cory’s storyline? Why not expand THAT story and make it the main plot? As it was, I think the entire rest of the book aside from Cory’s storyline could have been cut out and the story left over could have been interesting … even if it would only be 3 paragraphs long!

In the end, nothing is really resolved or concluded; it was a HUGE waste of time!

Now we have come full circle...

This is book 3 of the Christopher Diaries of Foxworth Hall. In Books 1 and 2 of this series, we get Christopher's point of view as to what really happened up in that attic all from a diary he wrote and left in the attic. Now in book 3, we get many answers to what Corrine and Grandmother really did with Cory on that fatal night when they took him to the hospital and he died. At least that is what they told the kids when they came back.

This series has been really exciting, specially since I don't care for "point of view" books, but they books are written very well. Book 3 isn't as exciting as 1 & 2 are, but it is filled with so many answers - almost like we are there watching everything unfold.

The author, VC Andrews did a good job writing this book. I feel this book brought the story around full circle. The narrator did a great job delivering this book. I felt the voices are very smooth, realistic and easy on the ears - very believable!
