Read The Twins Online Free - They were inseparable until an innocent mistake tore them apart.
Growing up, Viola and Issy clung to each other in the wake of their mother's eccentricity, as she dragged them from a commune to a tiny Welsh village. They thought the three of them would be together forever.
But an innocent mistake one summer set them on drastically different paths. Now in their twenties, Issy is trying to hold together a life as a magazine art director, while Viola is slowly destroying herself, consumed with guilt over the events they unknowingly set into motion as children.
When it seems that Viola might never recover, Issy returns to the town they haven't seen in a decade, to face her own demons and see what answers, if any, she can find.
A deeply moving, gripping debut, this is a novel about the secrets we carry, and the bonds between twins.

Unfortunately, I finally had to give up on this book after drudging my way through 40% of it. So please keep in mind that this review is only for the parts of the book that I was able to finish.
I really did want to like this book...it had an intriguing premise, based on the powerful connection be...

I read The Twins on a flight between Sydney and Perth, and the book allowed the hours to pass almost unnoticed. Two threads are interwoven in this tale of Isolte and Viola, twin sisters who were inseparable as children but who have grown to live very different lives. Isolte has a successful caree...

Gostei muito da capa deste livro, achei-a muito bonita. Infelizmente a história não me cativou tanto como a capa. A história tinha potencial mas não gostei da forma como foi escrita. Tinha pouco suspense, pouca emoção e totalmente previsível, sendo o final nada surpreendente

I received an ARC from GoodReads in exchange for an honest review.
This book is difficult for me to review because it's so muddled, I don't know where to begin to describe the story or my opinion of it. The book was described as involving a set of twins who were inseparable until an innocent mista...

I know many people who hate reading books that are told in multiple points of view. I happen to love it. I feel like I get a more rounded picture in my head. This book is not only told in multiple points of view but also alternates between first and third person.
This is the story of two twins who...

I won this book in a Goodreads first-reads giveaway.
I absolutely loved this book. It is definitely one of the best books I have read in a long time. This is one of those books that you keep thinking about when you lay it down and after you are finished reading it. The story is wonderful, the char...

O livro tem um início complicado. Capítulos que são no presente, outros no passado, uns que são narrados por uma gêmea e outros por outra... tudo isto sem nenhuma indicação
Tive alguma dificuldade em me adaptar a esta forma de escrita mas o enredo em si é bom. Achei o final um pouco decepcionante...

This had the potential of a four star book, I expected it would be. I was very disappointed.
My main criticisms of the book are:
*Being to drawn out
*Not giving the reader enough clues about what the 'dreadful event' was throughout the book
*Changing time period and character perspective without eno...

"We weren't always twins. We used to be just one person."
I absolutely loved 'The Twins'.
I read it on a long a train journey, and I think that is part of the reason loved it...because although it is a great story, it is quite confused. I would not want to put it down and pick it up again after a...
