This review is from: Her Fearful Symmetry (Paperback)
I picked up this book simply because it was written by the author of 'The Time Traveller's Wife' which I loved. Unfortunately this book just didn't match up. I struggled to get into the plot, I struggled to care for the characters and I really stuggled to believe in the characters choices.
Most of the characters were so robotic it made it difficult to feel what they should have been feeling. Facts that could have been used to give you an insight into the character (Elspeth keeping all of the things from her childhood in her flat) were just ignored and their emotions couldn't have been more top-line.
There's no denying that audrey niffenegger has an amazing imagination but the execution of this novel left a lot to be desired
