Anyone who was ever listening will know that one of my favourite books is The Time Traveller’s Wife. So with much anticipation I recently finished Audrey Niffenegger’s latest novel Her Fearful Symmetry. I am one of those people who needs a hook in the first page and this one got me in straight away and kept me interested and wanting the next chapter… Her quirky characters are fascinating – 2 sets of twins, an obsessive compulsive neighbour, the cemetery historian who can’t get over his dead love…. and the cemetery is a character in itself – full of stories… I wish I had the imagination of this woman…. I was thoroughly satisfied with this read, and wish she was one of those prolific writers who released a book every year….
