Her Fearful Symmetry

Entwined. Audrey Niffenegger gives readers over 400 pages of finely written prose in her novel, Her Fearful Symmetry. I found myself mesmerized by this odd story of two generations of twins whose lives and relationships are entwined. A supporting cast of characters provide plot movement and opportunity for Niffenegger to display her skill in character development. Readers with low tolerance for the paranormal will be overwhelmed by how much of the novel is outside the world we can see and feel. Readers willing to suspend disbelief and allow the novel to proceed will be rewarded by the behavior of character that disclose fundamentals about the ways we relate to one another. I suggest any reader sample some pages before committing to this unusual novel.
