This review is from: Her Fearful Symmetry (Hardcover)
Definitely not as good as TTTW but it would have taken something really remarkable to surpass AN's first novel. I agree with many reviewers that the first half of this book is very slow but it leads into a surprising and delicious ending. I felt the book was a modern adult fairy tale and for that I could overlook the sometimes OTT scenarios. The whole concept of American born twins inheriting their Aunt's London flat, which overlooked Highgate cemetery, and needing to live in it for a whole year before they could sell it, was brilliant but I think a much stronger story could have been written.
However for all its odd faults Her Fearful Symmetry is a novel well worth reading.
