Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger

Her Fearful Symmetry - Audrey Niffenegger

The last part of this book was rather off-putting for me. Up until part 2 it was around 3 to 3.5 star material for me but by the time I got to the end I could barely even give it 2 stars. I have to give props for the language though, I think it was simple but flowing. I was interested enough to follow through to the end, but part 3 basically killed it for me.

At first the premise of this book reminded me of another book, The Thirteenth Tale -- there are twins, mysteries, an old house, England setting. Now I think they're totally different, and HFS paled in comparison. While The Thirteenth Tale uncovers its layers of secrets little by little, HFS just throws out everything in your face at the end, and not in a satisfying way either.
