    Den trettende fortælling af Diane Setterfield (obscurelens, sruszala, lahochstetler)
    obscurelens: Story about twins and ghosts. Darker than Her Fearful Symmetry, but I think it's far better than this.
    lahochstetler: Gothic tales of devoted twin sisters, love, and death.

    Highgate Cemetery: Victorian Valhalla af Felix Barker (lilithcat)
    lilithcat: For those who wish to know more about this book's setting, I highly recommend Barker's. It includes an essay on the history of Highgate, one on well-known burials, and has a section of wonderful photographs. Highgate is very unlike the manicured, geometrically laid-out modern cemeteries, and, if those are the only ones with which you are familiar, Barker gives you a sense of the atmosphere this young American women encountered.… (mere)

    Gargoilen : stendragen af Andrew Davidson (heidialice)
    heidialice: If you couldn't get enough of Martin and Marijke, or were hoping for a something a bit more like "The Time Traveler's Wife" try "The Gargoyle".

  5. 20
    A Certain Slant of Light af Laura Whitcomb (wegc)

    Nobody af Neil Gaiman (heidialice, Othemts)
    heidialice: Similar in setting, and both ghost stories, these are very different books, but fans of one should be interested in the other.

This was not a compelling read. I did not relate to any of the characters and didn't find them very interesting. As a ghost story.......it wasn't much. The theme of identical twins exchanging identities could be more interesting if handled differently. The only good thing about this book were the descriptions of Highgate cemetery........maybe if we remove the characters and the plot and substitute that material with more stories about Highgate this would be a fine book.

Story held my interest to find out where the author was going with the various characters. Was not pleased with ending of book except for Martin being able to move on with life. Enjoyed getting to know the twins (both sets). Could not understand Robert especially later in the story; maybe that is why the book ended like it did. ( )

2019 started re-listen. // Re-listen complete and I still loved it. Look forward to a re-read someday.

hmmm what to say. Two young women (twins) move to London because they've inherited their aunt's "flat". Their aunt is their mother's twin. It's a 3 family "flat". Upstairs lives Martin and his wife Marika. They have their own complete story that intertwines with the main story line. Downstairs lives Robert who was their aunt's boyfriend. He is a main character along with younger set of twins. Across the street is a large cemetery that Robert volunteers at and is writing his thesis about. We are taken to a couple funerals and a tour there in Highgate Cemetery.

That's it, I can't tell you more. There are ghosts but it is not horror.

Author said: Stole ideas from these 3 books. the woman in white. the turn of the screw. portrait of a lady.

I like it, would recommend it. Possibly re-read it some day.

I've listened to audiobook twice narrated by Bianca Amato. She is an outstanding narrator. (She sounds quite a bit like Cersei Lannister.)

From the book: A bad thing about dying is that I've started to feel as though I'm being erased. Another bad thing is that I won't get to find out what happens next. ( )

This is an odd sort of book, as those of you who have read The Time Traveler's Wife might expect from Audrey Niffeneger. It plods along somewhat devoid of a plot - some things happen, sometimes weird things, sometimes for no apparent reason, and there is no discernable climax. Having said that, it's interesting and I didn't find it predictable at all. ( )
  adam.currey | Nov 14, 2020 |
i had great hopes for this book but alas, twin!tropes left and right. whilst it wasn't necessarily predictable, i wasn't surprised by anything that occurred and that, in and of itself, was sad; there was so much potential for creepy awesomeness that never seemed to come to fruition. audrey niffenegger, i see your issues and i call shenanigans.

Niffenegger’s story is written with a lightness of touch and with a great eye for the oddities of human behaviour.
 
Niffenegger has always identified loss as her main subject, but here at least it’s dissolution: the grim inevitability of decay. The theme of doubleness feeds into this. Valentina wants to break free of the controlling Julia and live her own life, but can she survive without her? Forced togetherness, the “fearful symmetry” of the title, can lead to a diminution of individual identity, a merging of personalities. Sometimes apartness is preferable.
tilføjet af riverwillow | RedigerThe Times, John O'Connell (Oct 10, 2009)
 
Instead of fabricating ghosts and faux-Englishmen, it's a shame that Niffeneggers didn't just cut away all the cobwebby Halloween trappings and write a moving, realistic story about a man with OCD who is trapped for real, rather than ersatz, reasons in a flat overlooking a cemetery. She sustains a mood, but it is vaguely repellent, rather than enjoyably disquieting. Instead of a lingering, unforgettable ghost story, this is the novelistic equivalent of a cut-rate séance, a parlour game complete with Ouija boards and cheap theatrics, as unconvincing as knuckles rapping under tables
 
Niffenegger is an extraordinarily sensitive and accomplished writer, and Her Fearful Symmetry is a work of lovely delicacy... But Her Fearful Symmetry is not a book of great emotional force, not the way Time Traveler's Wife was.
tilføjet af Shortride | RedigerTime, Lev Grossman (Oct 5, 2009)
 
Mysteries and truths slowly unravel as the story progresses. The major plot resolves predictably, but its grim inevitability fits well with the genre, and a few more surprising twists produce an even more satisfying read than Niffenegger’s bestselling debut.
