    Just Not Needed

    Ah, my trip down memory lane. When I was younger, graduating from reading YA novels to reading adult ones via Virginia Andrews was almost a rite of passage, so I picked up this book with much nostalgia. A lot of this book was repetitive and recapped My Sweet Audrina - the book it has been written as a sequel to. This isn't surprising, maybe, considering how long ago the first book was written. It's also worth mentioning that the first book was written by VC, herself, and the second book by the ghost writer employed by the Andrews family to, in essence, continue the legacy. In truth, although the family has found a pretty worthy ghost writer in terms of style, content was lacking and not much happened in the book. I felt disappointed that the characters had become pretty unlikeable - there wasn't even one redeeming hero to pul the book through, and my memory says there was always one of those. I had no idea when this book was set. I couldn't pin down a time period at all. There weren't really any cues that tied in together. I have given 2* for over all style (very similar to the VC Andrews melodrama and overly-descriptive prose that I remember) but the story content was really, really lacking and it didn't add anything to the previous book, in my opinion. I think My Sweet Audrina should have been left alone. Still it was a quick read. I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in return for an honest review.
