  "Afterlife in a London Flat" by kathymixon (see profile) 06/10/10

Generally, our club liked this book - although one thought it was creepy. I loved the detail about Highgate Cemetery in London, which made it essentially another character. Very imaginative - if unbelievable at times - premise of what a ghost-like existence might be like. We also thought the portrayal of mirror twins and their idiosyncracies was very interesting.

 
  "Little Symmetry for this Reader" by nbaker (see profile) 10/24/13

I gave the book a thumbs up because I liked the historical stories of the old cemetery and how it was described. However, I felt the story lacked in many areas. The story started off with hope of a good mystery (and there were some "gotcha" moments) but I felt the story fell flat in believability and human nature. Throughout the entire book there is dialog and immediately following in italics what the speaking person is thinking. That writing technique drove me crazy. Without giving the story away, it had some interesting twists in the end, some predictible, others not so much, but I generally felt that the book was leading up to some pinnacle ending and then just died off. I was expecting a story of a mother's love, the unseen connection between twins but was given a story of deceit, selfishness and lifetimes of heart-felt longings.
