Actually almost all the books are like that. The men are moron's, and the girls are desperate and sluty.

Does anyone else not have much time for Heaven in the latter books? I liked her in Heaven but I thought by Fallen Hearts she was a bit snotty and up her own backside.

Well said Virginia. Yeah, I think the new Attic series is good. I thinkn the second will be better. I like Hentai Anime (sp?) and yes, I like stories involving consentual incest b/c it seems to be the last taboo.

Did anybody read Secrets in the Attic? It is a very good book.

I think about this subject of incestious relationships. I think that what Virginia Andrews did with the chacters Chris and Cathy was to show how it could be possible that it happens with some kind of dignity, when in most cases it would be horrifying to hear about. We understand Cathy for making the haunting choices she makes and we forgive her as our heroine. And mostly, we would never want to have to make the choices she has made.

I have heard much praise for the new ATTIC book. What is its premise? I am still drudging through the DEBEERS saga. Willow DeBeers and her lover Thatcher Eaton are rather unlikable stars. They are cold and snobby. While more intelligent than most heroines Willow does show how being smart does not make one a better person. She is impressionable and reluctant to form friendships. She sees everything as a contract. If it does not benefit her enough it is not worth getting involved. While this attitude keeps her out of danger, it also keeps her alone. Her mother Graces story will probably be better as she like most VCA heroines was raped and impregnated by her stepfather whom had her institutionalized where she fell in lover with her doctor. I am also finishing off the SHOOTING STARS series which should be avoided only one of the 4 heroines Rose had a real VCA childhood.

I really liked V.C. Andrews newest release "Secrets in the Attic". It was very well thought out and I enjoyed every page. Finally the ghost writer is connecting with his audience instead of writing drivel and expecting long time fans not to notice. I suggest this book to anyone who wants to get back in touch with V.C. Andrews roots.

Dear Kevin yes hentai anime certainly is mainly about rape and or blackmail. I actually found a first VCA reference in anime in the comedy series THIS UGLY YET BEAUTIFUL WORLD the sister says QUOTE There is no Flowers in the Attic thing going on here. UNQUOTE There is a sharp decline in heroines being raped in VCA. Those poor Foxworths and Culters, sexual predators infested their families and sweet Audrinas life was filled with rapists. Melody Logan should have taught a self defense course as she avoided the most number of rapes. In UNFINISHED SYMPHONY alone by only page 178 she survived 3 attempted rapes. Not that I want the heroines to be raped but it seems Andrew Niederman or the publisher is wimping out by toning down the violence and adding in unnecessary political correctness. Writers should not have boundaries.

Actually, not only is some Anime about incest, but most of it is about rape. Especially if it's porno.... Don't ask me how i know that lol.
