According to the back of the book, it’s a book for people that liked Gone girl by Gillian Flynn. I wouldn’t know because I haven’t read that book, but I have read The ice twins and I liked it. It’s about this married couple, Angus and Sarah Moorcroft, and their twindaughters. One twin, Lydia, died in an accident, but Kirstie remains alive. After a while the creepiness comes into play because Kirstie claims that she is Lydia and that is was Kirstie that died in the accident. That makes her mother, Sarah go a little crazy, because how can she know for sure which twin died? After all, Lydia and Kirstie was identical twins, and they didn’t have a good way to tell them apart.
The premise of the book is very intriguing, the interactions Kirstie, or is it Lydia? has with other people, well, some of it is kind of creepy. At least because the twins had made up their own language, and the one still alive claims she is talking to her sister in their language.
The books also shows that you can’t move away from your problems, at least not when your problem is your daughter and your spouse. When you are starting to wonder if you or your spouse is going crazy, who do you turn to? And what about the living twin? And the dead one for that matter. The big question is what happend?
One thing is for sure, if ever someone I know have identical twins, I will strongly recomend that they get a tiny tattoo on one or both of them to be able to tell them apart….
The story in the book is compelling, a little creepy and very good. A book I can recommend to people that want a little drama mixed with psychology and excitement 🙂
