This was an interesting concept, all children born are twins and when one dies its twin also dies. I felt that the author, Mike Essex, needs a better editor to check spelling etc. In saying that, I quite enjoyed this book, it was different.

I have read this book a while ago, and now I have write the review, I had to quickly browse through the book to remind me of what's going on in the story. The book is pretty good, but I feel is let down by an over-complicated plot. It is also never made quite clear why it is that each person on Earth has a twin. There are many twists in the plot, and it's not always easy to follow (or remember what's going on). The idea of writing each chapter as seen or told by a different character is quite interesting and gives the book different angles throughout the story. I would still recommend this book.

I'm not entirely sure what this book is about. It seems that there is a link (the Tether) between twins which means that when one dies the other one does, too. Then a mad scientist creates a radio wave generator that gets out of hand and has the effect of destroying all within range. Society is now polarised into two classes, the haves and the have-nots. There is no explanation of where the haves get their goodies; maybe it's a bit like the Morlocks and Eloi of "The Time Machine". Anyway, one twin happens to survive the death of her twin, so she is Special and destined, I presume, to be the Saviour Of Mankind. She is helped by the Good Guys (or are they?) and hindered by the Bad Guys, who are not always Bad but their eyes turn orange when they are. Bad, that is. Otherwise the Good Guys wouldn't know when to shine their Magic Blue Lights (which incapacitate Bad Guys), would they?

I got 91% of the way through this book, where there is a mad battle going on, set in the Olympic Park ruins, worthy of a Channel 5 USA budget movie. I could no longer kid myself that this was a grown-ups' story. I have to admit it was cheap at 77 pea. I'm just surprised at the huge number of readers who gave it five stars....

I had the good fortune to read this book on my new tablet on downtime after new year. It's gripping from the start and well written which given some of the popular dross I have read recently is more refreshing than you could know.

I liked the idea of this book since I read the first synopsis. So I bought it. I'm always up for new things to read and new writers to discover. I can read anything
And it started almost well... until it was clear that I couldn't carry on reading without thinking why I was reading it. The story line is good if it would have been developed in a way that sound almost convincing, but I can't say I bought anything... it's full of good ideas badly put together
And the end... what in heaven is that about? It doesn't make any sense at all. Not even if you want to sell more books. So many more ways to end this book and we end up with that...
Very very disappointing indeed and I really sorry about it

I do think that this book has a strange premise - that everyone has a twin who is tethered to them. The story itself was OK, but a bit weird in places. For me it is one of those books which I was not quite sure whether I liked or not. I appreciate that with any story out of the ordinary the reader has to accept certain ideas in order to make the story work, which I can usually do, but struggled with this one. I probably won't bother to read the sequel.

I really enjoyed this book, a very different post apocalyptic type of story, the ending does leave the way ready for the next book in the series, but that didn't stop this bookmfrom being a good read on its own.

It took me a while to work out what Tethered Twins was, well written from the start, I couldn't quite place it in any genre and it's safe to say, it crosses genres, part sci-fi, part adventure, part social commentary and even in places, part horror.

Set in a dystopian future parallel Great Britain where everybody has a twin and the twins share a psychic link called a tether which means they share every major emotional event, this book follows the story of Emmie (and I think only the first part of her story) - Quite frankly, I couldn't put it down.

I would say this book is a great read both for adults and in all honesty, for teenagers, a good comparison would place it in the same age range as the Hunger Games Trilogy etc. It does contain some harrowing scenes and truly horrific characters though so certainly not for young ones.
