Short Description for Her Fearful Symmetry Julia and Valentina Poole are normal American teenagers - normal, at least, for identical 'mirror' twins who have no interest in college or jobs. But everything changes when they receive notice that an aunt whom they didn't know existed has died and left them her flat in an apartment block overlooking Highgate Cemetery in London.

Reviews for Her Fearful Symmetry

This book is a real page turner
It sucks you in and won't let you go until you've finished reading the last page. Even then, you want more. Don't expect to get up and do the groceries before you reach the end. Brushing your teeth while reading? Perfectly doable. Open this book at your own risk (and don't forget to drink some tea, coffee, water, hydration of choice)
What you get, is a great mix of ghost story, romantic drama and coming-of-age. The separate elements have been put together to form a fantastic modern day story which tells you that you can't always have what you want, can't always keep what you love, and that playing with ghosts might give some surprising results. You know you're reading a book written by a good storyteller when the ending manages to be completely logical, yet surprisingly unexpected.
Finally, I have to praise the author for the nauwkeurige references: I instantly recognized the Doctor Who episode described, and almost all references to The Netherlands and the fragments of Dutch language were correct. There was one little mistake in an adjective and one slightly out-dated, yet appropriate phrase. by A. van der Helm
I really enjoyed this book. It was an easy read but also kept me wanting more. Another great book by Audrey Niffenegger. by Laura Pocock
A Gorgeous Book
I read this book almost in a sitting - it was one of those beautifully written, gripping stories in which you just need to know what happens next.
It is a little slow starting, a little shocking in parts, and brilliant.
I can't wait for Audrey's next book... by Kylie Cantwell
