(I received a free copy of this book – accidentally, but I’ve still read it and am reviewing).
(This review may contain spoilers).
This was actually a book I particularly wanted to read. I didn’t win it in a giveaway, but I received it accidentally and therefore took advantage of that to read it.
The blurb of this book was quite good and I read the book quite fast. The interactions between Violet and Kate reminded me of my own arguments with my sister and how we make up almost as quickly as we start fighting.
I liked the whole Senses thing and how it worked different for the twins. I did like Kate’s relationship with her husband and her children (especially Rosie) made me smile. I did think, however, that there were too many flashbacks. I kept losing track of my place in the story.
It was good to have a book written in first person that stayed with only one character, but I had a bit of trouble relating to Kate. She came across as racist and homophobic a couple of times and I didn’t really like her that much. I did like her husband and her children and I thought some of the other characters were quite well-rounded and interesting.
The book was well-written, but I did have some issues with the main character. It might have been interesting to see the events from Violet’s perspective, but although the book was an entertaining read, I don’t think I’d read it again.
