A brilliant novel about conjoint twins
written in the form of a dual autobiography. The twins are joined
at the head and share each others blood. They have so much in
common, the same genes, the same enviroment and upbringing and yet
they have very different personalities.
The book brings out the selflessness of the
twins and how they deal with disfigurement. I was fascinated by how
they shared each others emotions and reactions as hormones
such as adrenaline or alcohol ingested by one twin affected the
other. Most poignant of all they are bound together in the
knowledge that when one of them dies the other will only have hours
An unique subject for a novel, very well
researched by the author, beautifully written and easy to read.
