‘Her Fearful Symmetry’



Book Title: Her Fearful Symmetry
Author: Audrey Niffenegger
Read: 10th June 2013

After reading and falling in love with Niffenegger’s ‘The Time Traveler’s Wife’ and finding out about this through a friend, I decided to read it straight away. I was not disappointed. It was such a charming book and hard to put down, meeting not only the main characters of the twins, but the people around them who are prominent in the book and make the book even more interesting. It was an interesting view on ghosts and what life is like after you die, and the various stories woven within the main storyline was really interesting, my favourite being the story of Martin, who has OCD. This was not only because I’m very supportive of mental health awareness and equality/access to support, but I’d never read a book about someone with OCD and to have that part in the book made it that bit better for me, to see how other people perceive him and how his life is affected by it.
This book really is fantastic and well worth a read. 

My rating is 5/5 – you will not regret buying this one!
