Her Fearful Symmetry – Audrey Niffenegger

A struggle for self identity.

Twin girls Julia and Valentina have lived a pretty sheltered life up until the time they receive word they’ve inherited their aunt’s London flat. It is this news that acts as the impetus that will lead them to each discover who they are as individuals.

Niffenegger creates a cast of characters that include; a ghost, a mentally ill neighbor, a good looking historian neighbor, that all play a central role in the twins’ journey of self discovery.

This story at times is funny, informative (from a historical perspective), and emotionally painful all in one quick read.

An interesting enough story that keeps your attention and certainly worth the read.

    Wow. I’m really curious about this book. Haven’t read any Niffenegger, yet I’ve heard everyone loves her curious story-telling. The cover I saw of this book was slightly different though. It had two young blonde girls. It was haunting…

    Nice blog you have here. Keep up the good work!

  2. Thanks Zee for the kind words. I am just in the very early stages, so it’s a little rough.
