i was about 15 when i first read this book - i read it through the night and finished it at 7am - i had a hour sleep before i had to get up for school. this book had a massive impact on me at that age. to this day nearly ten years on, i have never found another author whose writings have had such an impact on me. and i have read hundreds if not over a thousand novels over the years. this book, as well as flowers in the attic, were the books that gave me the thirst for reading. i'm just sorry that andrews is dead beacuse the company that now writes under her name has never written anying that can even compare to the real andrews works. this book is a gem - i would however suggest that when you buy it - you must also purchase the following 4 in the series because once you have finished this - you will not be able to wait a couple of days for the next! can anyone reccomend to me a book that is a good as this - i would love to read it.
