Five things you need to know about The Ice Twins Teaser Review1 “Prepare to be haunted by The Ice Twins” – seeing that you may be blase Seen it all before Heard that than once But PAY ATTENTION If this book does not appear somewhere in some subconcious form or another in my dreams tonight I shall be very surprised2 Storytelling genius Really can’t tell you anything about it though It is obvious of course that there are twins involved and one dies and there seems to be some confusion over which one Apart from that though I would not give anything away You need to read it The pure and haunting prose and beautifully constructed plot will engage and enchant you at the same time as having you feeling vaguely afraid of something you can’t uite capture3 Atmosphere One of the most atmospheric and exuisite novels I have read for some time And I read a lot If I had to liken it to anything it would be The Shining Not in story form the two tales are poles apart But in sense and feeling and the odd sudden reading adrenalin rush that is the novel I would “twin” it with Yes I really did do that4 Don’t put it in a genre box I hate boxes for books But if I must this is not only a top notch highly readable and terribly addictive psychological thriller it also manages to be a pretty emotional and heart wrenching look at grief and survivor guilt However it is also many other things Clever and intuitive writing let it be what it is5 You will worry for the dog I’m not going to tell you whether or not that worry is justified because I really am that meanHighly Recommended 5 beautiful shiny stars and a puppy for this one
