The name of Malcom's daughter is Corrine, not Coleene.

Scattered Leaves, the sequel to Broken Flower, was so very disappointing. It was a guilty pleasure, but what kind of family secret was that? SPOILERS: did it really affect the plot who Jordan's grandmother was? The family secrets used to mean something. Um Chris, sorry about your job.

I just lost my second job in less than a month. How was your day? I finished BROKEN FLOWER. There were many good aspects. There was the stereotypical perfect family, big mansion, and grandmother but of course a series of tragic events tare the family apart and bind a brother and sister. Even more tragically the siblings are separated. It had a very unreal fairytale feeling to it like FITA or MY SWEET AUDRINA did. My main problem was that it was very slow moving. The whole story could have been told in only half the space. VCA had the talent to write a true epic in a single book. Niederman seems to drag things on for several books. The sequel boasts more family secrets than FITA. I hope so since there have not been any yet. Dear Ashley, I too did not like the way Joel was made into a villain for no reason. They should have let him rest in peace. I felt the same way about some other villains. I felt sorry for them not frightened of them. A good villain is someone like Olivia or Grandmother Cutler, or Fanny. They have many opportunities to lead good lives but choose to be evil and hurt the innocent.

My Sweet Audrina is also one of my favorite VC books and always was just because it is so unique. Poor mysterious Audrina as she sits wondering what day and what time it is all of the time. Her mother and father are so heartless. I even remember reading that she cannot dress well until she somehow absorbs the first Audrina's memories. How sad.
She reminds me of Carrie a little bit in Flowers when Carrie is at the boarding school and is so alone.

Yeah I felt bad for Carrie too. It seemed nothing could work out for her and I kept hoping things would. I was so upset when she committed suicide. It was one of the parts that affected me the most in POTW.
My Sweet Audrina is actually one of my all time favourite books out of any book I have read. I can re-read that one a lot and not get sick of it.
At the moment I am reading Garden of Shadows again. There are a lot on inconsistencies in this book and the other ones. I'm only at the start of it, so once I get further in I'll mention them. But has anyone else noticed? I remember in Flowers in The Attic Corrine called Joel her younger brother, which he wasn't.
I kind of hate to see Joel turning into such an evil character too when he was a good character in Garden of Shadows.

Dear Lena, I was getting the same feeling from the GEMINI series it was pretty far off and disorganized. INTO THE WOODS was disappointing for me. They could have done a lot more with the heroine. The DeBeers series is stuck in some odd times. I pointed out how there are many historical oddities. The book should take place during the late 60s early 70s but there are references to the Hubble telescope, the USS Cole bombing, the internet and other recent events. Chris was a very heroic character in FLOWERS. He saved them and did everything he could to help the others. He made Cathy feel loved. She fully acknowledged her only happy moments during their entire imprisonment were with Chris. But like Cathy, Chris changed in POTW. Chriss optimism vanished after they went two weeks without food. He was never the same. The reason he came across as annoying in POTW was because Cathy would not embrace their love. She was stubbornly determined to make herself miserable. She was trying very hard to get him to hate her, which could never happen. This just made her miserable as she was jealous of her dancer friend in New York, whats her name Yolanda? Chris was far less heroic in POTW. He should have sought revenge on the Foxworths. Violent revenge. His best admirable scene was when he stood up for Cathy after the Christmas ballet.
