Her Fearful Symmetry

Most Recently Read Book:

Her Fearful Symmetry

By Audrey Niffenegger

I am so happy to be posting about another book written by Niffenegger. She wrote my beloved Time Traveler's Wife and I have been anxiously awaiting another book by her. This book is definitely a completely different book though...I enjoyed it but not the way I adored TTW. I know lots of people who agree and disagree with me about TTW so there's a chance that if you liked or didn't like it you may or may not like Her Fearful Symmetry!

I wasn't sure what to expect from this book. When it comes down to it, this book is a great ghost story. I guess I wasn't expecting it to be as much of a ghost story as it was. I really liked the characters and I liked the idea of the book but I wasn't a huge fan of the ending...I so wish I could share more but I don't want to ruin it for anyone. If you have read it, or once you do, e-mail me though so we can discuss!!!!!!

On a side note, the younger girls in the book grew up in Lake Forest which is also where I grew up! It was cool to hear them talk about Lake Forest and going to the beach. There really isn't that much reference to it, but it was still cool!

You make a good point. I'm not sure what I missed because I didnt' like TTW (and everyone else really did!) So I will give this book a try :)
