An Indirect Title Character

There are plenty of fictional title characters that stand out in our literary memories. Jane Eyre, Oliver Twist, Carrie, Harry Potter, they all take center stage right in the title and their books revolve around their stories. 287 more words

The trouble with twins

I am not a big fan of books that feature twins. Now read that sentence again carefully before you get all huffy. In fact, I love the few twins I have met; it is the use of twins as a plot device of which I am suspicious. 400 more words

Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger

The first half of this book was okay, an interesting theme with some interesting, albeit unlikeable, characters.

The second half was a travesty. I got to page 395 (of 482) before a shouted “THIS IS B**LSH*T” to the empty room. 119 more words
