Her Fearful Symmetry
Her Fearful Symmetry | Audrey Niffenegger
Another brilliant, original and moving novel from the author of The Time Travelers Wife. Julia and Valentina Poole are normal American teenagers normal, at least, for identical mirror twins who have no interest in college or jobs or possibly anything outside their cozy suburban home. But everything changes when they receive notice that an aunt whom they didnt know existed has died and left them her amazing flat in a building by Highgate Cemetery in London. They feel that at last their own lives can begin but they have no idea that theyve been summoned into a tangle of fraying lives, from the OCD-suffering crossword setter who lives above them to their aunts mysterious and elusive lover who lives below them, and even to their aunt herself, who never got over her estrangement from the mother of the girls her own twin and who cant even seem to quite leave her flat. From the Hardcover edition.

A book about a #ghost. I've been meaning to read this for so long, but have been hesitating as I loved TTTW so much.

This is an August #bookspin (maybe) pick that‘s been on my shelves for too long. And now we can part ways…

TheAromaofBooks At least it's off the list!! 5mo
JackOBotts @TheAromaofBooks yes! AND into the donation pile…🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 5mo
TheAromaofBooks SO GOOD to get books out of the house!! 😂 I've added Pango Books into my pile of ways to get books out of here - have you checked them out? It's truly the easiest way to sell books I have ever found. Of course, that has also led to BUYING more books so it may not be working out as well as I had hoped 😆 5mo
JackOBotts @TheAromaofBooks thanks for this recommendation…will have to check it out, for sure!! 5mo

I dived into this without knowing what to expect. Turns out a disappointment. Firstly I didn‘t like the writing style. I have no sympathy for the characters, save for one. The 20-year-old twins talk and act like teenagers, while one character is a real creep. I didn‘t find the story chilling or spooky and how it unravelled..need to suspend disbelief. Seems like a marmite book.. I‘m not in the love camp.

MsMelissa Yup. I hated this one, too. 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage I thought this would be my #twins choice as well. But on the spur of the moment, I picked a debut book instead. I‘m not sorry now. Thanks for the review! 2y

My 2nd book from this author, and I don‘t get why her books seem so polarizing, but it feels like readers love them or hate them. I‘m still in the love camp.🖤

Delightfully weird, genuinely affecting, beautifully written ghost story with a very gothic feel—but not what you expect from a ghost story. I did figure out what was going to happen a few minutes before the twist, but that didn‘t stop the goosebumps. LOVE!

I found this book a little slow going but was surprised by the turn it took. I don‘t feel the ending was as satisfying as I hoped it would be. I like the author‘s style of writing and Time Traveler‘s Wife was one of my favorites so I might give Audrey Niffeneger another try!

Today‘s #chillingphotochallenge prompt is #graveyard . Immediately I thought of this book. To me, London‘s Highgate Cemetery is as much a character as a setting in this book. Thinking of it again today, I may need to read this again.

We ended our lovely (if very cold and drizzly) London day, with a wander round the magical Highgate Cemetery..... the higgledy-piggledy graves, rampant wildflowers and crumbling statutes in the woodland-like setting, is just so beautiful.
(And makes for the perfect setting for this creepy book 💕👻🐱🐱)

After reading about the ghost that haunts this novel, I bet the protagonists wish they‘d said “don‘t haunt this place”. This is a gorgeous gothic novel that gets very weird and uncomfortable. A marmite book that some people can‘t stand. When I first finished it I felt squeamish but now I look back on it fondly. I wish Niffenger would write more novels!

Centique @Cinfhen it‘s very different to TTW. As if she was playing with the idea of time travel in that one, in this one it‘s ghosts. Apart from ghosts it‘s very realistic. If the idea of ghosts doesn‘t feel too unreal for you, you might like it! 4y

Literally just finished the book last night. It was a pretty good combination of drama and supernatural suspense, in my opinion. The twists were pretty predictable, but I thought they were still executed pretty well. It was all in all a book that left me thinking a lot at the end. If you're sort of sensitive or an empath even with fictional characters, this book may be enjoyable but upsetting.

I *really* struggle with the choice to abandon books... especially when there‘s nothing abjectly wrong with them. I always feel like I might love them, given more time! Who knows??? But I‘m having a super-hard time sticking with “Her Fearful Symmetry.” So I think I‘m gonna do it. Be brave, Dear Heart! So many books, so little time! 😱

ReviewsMayVary Awwww! I really liked that one... but there are too many books to keep reading one you don‘t like. I say, ridiculously, as i continue my current rage read. 4y

Torn between a pick & so-so cos of that ending 😕
I had few expectations of this book in terms of plot. So most things were pleasant surprises. But that ending...it‘s jarring. And I feel like we didn‘t get enough time to adjust to Elspeth‘s trick. Or Elspeth & Edie‘s deception.
It‘s too bad, because there is a lot to like here. Niffenegger paces her story well, and has an inventive tale to tell. She just doesn‘t pull it off at the end.

TrishB I loved this book ❤️ 5y
Sweettartlaura @TrishB How long do you think Elspeth planned on it? Is that why she had the girls move in? Was it when she saw Robert & Valentina? Or was it just an opportunity she took? 5y
TrishB I think if memory serves me I thought it was when she saw Robert and Valentine 🤔? 5y
Sweettartlaura @TrishB It leaves without knowing what to think of her. Robert isn‘t happy with her, & he knows her best. But it‘s a weird feeling to not even have an opinion on the MC - I could be ok with hating her, even. This just feels... undecided. I‘m not crazy about that. 5y
TrishB I don‘t mind undecided so I was ok with that - but I can understand the frustration. 5y

👻 👻 What the hell did I just read? I gave it two stars (or ghosts) and I think that might be pretty generous. Ghost stories are meant to be scary, not squicky. This...just no thank you.

My husband has brought to my attention that I like to say what something is 'supposed to be' and that I shouldn't do that. So I'm editing to say that I prefer ghost stories that are scary and not squicky. Sorry Audrey. Not telling you how to write your books. 🤐

Reviewsbylola Hahaha nothing like a husband to interject. 😂 5y
DebbieGrillo I liked this one. Had to look up squicky. Here's what I found: "squicky. Adjective. (comparative squickier, superlative squickiest) Engendering a feeling of disgust, distaste, nausea or revulsion, but without a judgment regarding the rightness or wrongness of the stimulus." 5y

#uncannyoctober #spooky I love this creepy twin-centric novel set in one of favorite places in London.... Highgate cemetery... it‘s beautiful and spooky! 👻⚰️

DebbieGrillo I loved this one too! 5y
scripturient I‘ve been to London so many times but never made it to Highgate. Definitely planned for my next trip in March. I mean, what could possibly go better with seeing the HP play? 😍 5y

Mehso-so

A very strange, grief filled book. A ghost story and family drama rolled into one. I loved the first 3/4 of the book. The ending? Just strange.

WanderingBookaneer That scene with the cat's soul will forever live in my memory. 6y
Nebklvr @WanderingBookaneer It was deliciously creepy but the ending was unsatisfying 6y
TrishB I loved this book 💜 was ok with the ending! 6y

8little_paws I remember this one! The ending went off the rails 😂😂😂 6y
Nebklvr @TrishB I am partial to more cut and dried endings,even strange ones! It is a failing, I know!! 😝 My friends all tell me so! 6y
Sweettartlaura I agree with you @Nebklvr - I can handle odd endings just fine, but this one... not so much. It‘s jarring, it doesn‘t resolve anything, & there is lots to resolve. It‘s not even that I hate it. It‘s just... asymmetrical, let‘s say. 5y

I'm currently in San Miguel de Allende in Mexico. We spent a full day in San Francisco before my flight and went two bookstores-Borderlands in the Mission and Dark Carnaval in Berkeley. I went a little crazy at both, but I only get there a couple times a year. #bookhaul. Good thing they all went back home instead of with me on the plane! The book I tagged is cut off- it's on top of the Cronin.

MrBook #NiceStack!!!! Safe travels! Trying to travel as much as your #LGP book? 😆😉👍🏻😎🙌🏻 6y
PatriciaU Good stack! Enjoy your time in Mexico. Hope you have *some* books to read! 6y
LeahBergen Wow! I love the Gorey bookmark. Enjoy your holiday! 😘 6y

Lidia San Miguel de Allende is such a lovely place ❤️. Enjoy! 6y
Crystalblu Dude! I would have loaned you a few of those ;) 6y
ApoptyGina69 @Crystalblu thanks I know, but both bookstores, while each is decades old, continue to teeter on the brink of existence. They're mostly used, so we did our part. 🤑 6y
Crystalblu @ApoptyGina69 Good on ya! 6y

About halfway through this mysterious little book... the depth of the characters really stands out and although the plot moves slowly, the attention to detail makes it an interesting and thought provoking read.

Ubookquitous This has been on my shelf a while... I loved 6y
