really liked it
Read in December, 2007

Very funny and often sad at the same time. I like the way this book played with appetites--for food, sex and books--and showed how in its own way, each can have its pitfalls. The twins formed an interesting contrast, outwardly very different but perhaps not so dissimilar in some fundamental ways. Fun that it began with a hurricane and ended with a blizzard and has a little lightning strike thrown in for good measure. Nicely written and kept me wanting to know what on earth was going to happen next.
