    RIGHT? The Cathy Chris make-outs were AMAZING and the stuff of my dreams. And the SHAVING CREAM HAND JOB?

    I am so ashamed of myself. I only made it 20 mins in before bailing. Once they were all grown up, I just couldn't care about their incesty probs no more!

    I think I remember losing interest in the book pretty fast, too.

    I actually saw the book of PotW at Target and couldn't resist buying it. Totally looking forward to reading it again. In my early teens, V.C. Andrews was my life.

    I have to assume my religious mother had NO idea what I was reading.

    Finally got to watch Petals on the Wind today and it. was. everything. The casting was 1000x bettah. There's something almost Amy Adamsian about the actress playing Cathy? LOL that Carrie was one of the fractured Rorys from Bunheads (she's 5', so she's even small enough to be believably stunted!) and the pastor was Tom Long from HoD.

    We've had so many discussions over the past...14 years that I feel TLT almost deserves his own thread.

    Can u imagine. Can u.

    Do you think the poet's blouses laced up the front like a pirate? Do u.

    Maybe I can get Dark Angel on my kindle for my trashy summer read. I remember staying up all night to read this shit.

    Can we get a Kickstarter going to make Heaven happen?

    I was thinking about the tediousness of Troy's severe depression in a poet's blouse just the other day!

    Ok, as I recall Julian killed himself because he would never walk again, yes? And Cathy did love Bart. But Cathy loved errrrrybody and Chris loved NOBODY EVER except his mother until he couldn't anymore and he transferred all that fucked-up mishmash of maternal love, sexual love and obsessive love to Cathy's doorstep. And he NEVER looked back and just perved on her whenever they were alone and she totally liked it but wanted them to have real boundaries and they could never pull it off. Later, she just accepted that it would never be anybody but him but there wasn't a through-line in the book like there was in this movie.

    However, there was the other bitchy ballerina, Yolanda? I feel like she had a bigger part in POTW and that she banged Julian and perhaps tried to or actually did bang Christopher? And was just super mean to Cathy.

    The shaving cream handjob was FUCKING AMAZING.

    I was super sad Cathy didn't whip the grandmother but they amped up the evil of Corrine and cooled off the grandmother's evil in this version so Corrine was the mastermind. I'm actually super okay with all the changes. I think it made it better, funnier and true to spirit if not the letter!

    And I think in If There Be Thorns (LOL at the title alone) Corrine was disfigured by the fire she set but once she gets out of the sanitarium she tracks them down and moves in next door. And Bart's son is a sociopath who kills animals, Jory is fiery and a ballet dancer but not nearly as crazy. He's more normal. I honestly have zero memory of his plot points. But Cathy keeps little beds and a picnic basket literally in her attic. I really can't remember anything else about it. I feel like Corrine has a creepy manservant, maybe?

    What I really/want need is an adaptation of Heaven! UGH. I LOVED that series. Troy Langdon Tatterton and Chris Dollanganger are my childhood boyfriends for sure.

    It was so so SO ovah the top! Even for Lifetime!

    Was Christopher engaged at all in the book? I have little memory of this one.

    Dead Carrie and her creepy doll. Mummy Cory! (They left out Cathy whipping the invalid grandmother.) they glossed over Julian's suicide! That book scene scared me for IVs for years.

    But my grudgey-ness was for Bart! BookCathy loved him over time, didn't she?

    Shaving cream handjob with accusations!

    IT WAS SO GOOD.

    From what I remember, they skipped the years of Cathy being creepy with their Dr. Dad. And the stuff with Christopher and his fiancee was not in the book but it was PERFECT and AMAZING PotW fanfiction! I loved how HOT Cathy and Chris were for each other. It was EPIC. And insane.

    Can't wait for the next one but it focuses too much on Cathy's weirdo kids, IIRC.

    I thought Petals on the Wind was AHHHMAZING. So deliciously cray.

    I haven't read the book since I was about 15 and I can't remember how close they were to the original book, but I loved it.

    Julian was actually a big part of the movie. And I really liked the new casting of Cathy and Christopher. It worked for me.

    Supposedly it starts ten years after they left Foxworth Hall so a lot will probably be left out.

    OMG. This is very exciting. WHO PLAYS JULIAN!? I bet they cut him out altogether. He's sort of pointless.

    SO MUCH happens in Petals. It would have to be a Game of Throwns type show on HBO to cover it all.
