Memories, 1st Book to Freak Me Out! I was only 13.

I have no idea, how at the age of 13, I managed to get my hands on this book. But I did, and I became completely obsessed with it.
I read it so much, that my Mother took it away from me. She said "I acted different and strange" while I was reading it.

She must not have read "Flowers" before me. Because there is NO WAY she would have allowed me anywhere near this book. What with the child abuse, the incestuous affair, the murdered child, not to mention, the poisoning of the three legged pet mouse . I wouldn't let my kids read it either.

So, imagine my surprise to find "Flowers In The Attic" while checking out the New Release page on Audible. All those old, strange feelings came rushing back. So, of course, I bought the book, downloaded it, and began listening right there and then. All the while feeling the familiar naughtiness of my youth. Like sneaking to the candy store without telling anyone (which I did a lot) .

What are my thoughts and reactions to "Flowers" after all the time that has passed? Well first, I can't believe how much I remember from the story. I can still picture the characters exactly how I saw them as my younger self. And second, I'm amazed how well this story, which was written in the late 70's, has held up to the test of time. It's still a sad and very interesting tale of love, loss, and the ultimate betrayal.

Would I recommend it? Yes, it's credit worthy. Alyssa Bresnahan is an experienced and talented narrator. Which as fellow audiobook readers, we know, can make or break even the best written books out there.

FYI : While listening to this book, I acted "different and strange ". But no one noticed. :)

Finally

I remember my mother reading this series many years ago, she loved it. I don't know why it came to mind but I am so glad it did. Can't wait to get to the next book. I listened to it straight through, very hard to put down!! Also I really liked the narration so much, I had to speed it up a notch and that did the trick.
