    This was difficult to put down but I deliberately tried to read slowly beause it was such a pleasure to read Niffenegger is one of the finest contemporary writers and noone does longing and stymied love better than she does.This book reminded me of Time Traveler s Wife as well as The Lovely Bones The stories center on an apartment building right off of Highgate Cemetery in London One apartment belongs to Elspeth Noblin who dies on the first page of the book and bequeaths the apartment to This was difficult to put down but I deliberately tried to read slowly beause it was such a pleasure to read Niffenegger is on...

    This is a very tricky book to review I thoroughly enjoyed Her Fearful Symmetry Having heard plenty of mixed reviews about this one, I wasn t sure how I would find it On top of that, it was soon due back at the library, and I had 4 other library books calling my name desperately I needn t have worried This book definitely got me thinking and I like it when a book does that when it stays in my mind for a long time after I actually finished reading it.Her Fearful Symmetry is definitely a cha This is a very tricky book to review I thoroughly enjoyed Her Fearful Symmetry Having heard plenty of mixed reviews about this one, I wasn t sure how I would find it On top of that, it was soon due back at the library, and I had 4 other library books calling my name desperately I needn t have worried This book definitely got me thi...

    Like so many other readers, I was enchanted by The Time Traveler s Wife There was a willing suspension of disbelief on my part which goes against my skeptical and cynical nature but the story was sweet and engaging enough to pull it off Not so much with Her Fearful Symmetry Again, through at least the first 2 3 of the book, I was willing to suspend disbelief and go with the story But then it just got ridiculous beyond the point where I enjoyed the story any Essentially a ghost story, Like so many other readers, I was enchanted by The Time Traveler s Wife There was a willing suspension of disbelief on my part which goes against my skeptical and cynical nature but the story was sweet and engaging enough to pull it off Not so much with Her Fearful Symmetry Again, through at least the first 2 3 of the book, I was willing to suspend disbelief and go with the story But then it just got ridiculous beyond the point where I enjoyed the story any Essentially a ghost story, Her Fearful Symmetry features two sets of twins, the older Elspeth and Edie, and Edie s daughters Valentina and Julia The story opens with Elspeth succumbing to leukemia in a London hospital Her twin sister and nieces have not seen her inthan 20 years, as a rift between Elspeth and Edie as well as distance Edie lives in Chicago dr...

    Audrey Niffenegger s Her Fearful Symmetry is for the most part, a good, solid old fashioned ghost story with a contemporary setting The backdrop to the novel, and what to an extent becomes the dominant character in the story, is London s Highgate Cemetery which is paradoxically an obvious but inspired and perfect choice It s a fascinating, hugely atmospheric and wonderful place to visit and is ideal as the setting for a haunting story of the supernatural such as this one Audrey Niffenegge Audrey Niffenegger s Her Fearful Symmetry is for the most part, a good, solid old fashioned ghost story with a contemporary setting The backdrop to the novel, and what to an extent becomes the dominant character in the story, is London s Highgate Cemetery which is paradoxically an obvious but inspired and perfect choice It s a fascinating, hugely atmospheric and wonderful place to visit and is ideal as the setting for a haunting story of the supernatural such as this one Audrey Niffenegger worked as a tour guide at Highgate Cemetery whil...

    I read Niffenegger s first novel before the days of GR and I remembered when I decided to rate it, I wavered between 3 liked it and 4 stars really liked it I ended up opting for 4 stars, because I did remember so much of it due to its sense of place and its unique storytelling Her second novel has these same elements her strengths are obviously her imaginative story lines, which she roots in concrete reality But the story, which started out strong, lost its way long before the weak en I read Niffenegger s first novel before the days of GR and I remembered when I decided...
