it was amazing
Read from April 05 to 08, 2012

Loved this book, loved the poetic writing and the incredible emotional roller coaster ride it took me on. Clearly a tipple hanky read. I am rarely so moved by the written word, but this one socked it to the deaths of my soul. This journey could be any number of people I know and will ever meet all over the world. A special glimpse of what twins share that no other sibling can ever know. Medicine it truely a jelouse lover and demanding friend for those brave enough or compassionate enough to give a part of themselves to other who suffer. This will stay wih me for a long time!
