I know, I screwed up and accidentally wrote book, but I meant MOVIE. I just finished Olivia and thought it wasnt as bad as everyone says. Yes, Belindas character was very annoying, but I could not beleive what Olivia was like. It kept my interest enough that I finished it in one night so it couldnt have been that bad. What I dont get is the dislike in the movie. Is it because it didnt follow the book exactly, or what? But really, the way that Olivia was about Nelson totally suprised me, I wasnt expecting what happened to actually happen on Olivia's yacht. It was almost like she forced him to, right? Thats how I took it. That was a shocker. Overall it was a little slow but I liked it.

I didnt say there was anything wrong with the book! I said the film was utter rubbish.

Jenny- why do you say that about the book, whats wrong with it? Now that you say that, I remember not liking the movie when I saw it back then, but you really didnt like it? Oh, that is so disappointing!!! You know I think I will be agreeing with you about Belinda's character. From what little I've read about her so far, I was a little suprised such a person was even in one of these books. I cant think of anyone else quite like her. But, regardless of how bad they are or are not, I will find out soon cause I just have to get them. And I do expect to be disappointed in some. But we'll see...

Delia's Crossing is very good because it is a sad story about Delia having to live in Palm Springs with her aunt because her parents got killed in an accident.

JRH the Melody series wasnt bad but quite predictable. I quite liked the Grandmas story but there were no surprises and frankly I found Belinda quite irritating. I wouldnt bother with the FITA movie if I were you. I dont anybody who watched it and liked it after the book. Funnily enough my daughter likes it but she is only 12 and hasnt read the book! I will give her a couple more years then encourage her to read it. I was about 14 or 15 when I read it for the first time.

Jenny-what did you think of the Melody series? I started it and am waiting on the last three books to finish it. You know I am also waiting on the FITA movie. I saw it 12 years ago when I was 16 but dont remember alot of it. Sheri- I havent read the Delia's book, Why is it good?

JRH and Alba. The letter and the diary was put there simply for Andrew Neiderman to make up the story. All the books he wrote contradicted each other. And yet funnily enough, that is the only one he wrote that was more in the VC Andrews style. All the others were obviously written by him with no attempt really to write them in her style. I havent read delias Crossing and probably wont. I havent read any of the books after the Melody series cos of the fact that they went so downhill and predictable.

Did any of you read Delia's Crossing yet?

The whole letter in the diary in WOD doesnt make very much sense ALBA you are right. At first I thought maybe Tony put the letter in there not Jillian but then I thought Jillian was so good at pretending about everything that maybe she was just acting. I am not really sure you are ever suppose to know

Jillian is my all time favorite character. Yes the fact that she lived in her own crazy world is completely amazing to me!
