Amazon book review:
... a haunting tale about the complications of love, identity, and sibling rivalry. The novel opens with the death of Elspeth Noblin, who bequeaths her London flat and its contents to the twin daughters of her estranged twin sister back in Chicago. These 20-year-old dilettantes, Julie and Valentina, move to London, eager to try on a new experience like one of their obsessively matched outfits. Historic Highgate Cemetery, which borders Elspeth's home, serves as an inspired setting as the twins become entwined in the lives of their neighbors: Elspeth's former lover, Robert; Martin, an agoraphobic crossword-puzzle creator; and the ethereal Elspeth herself, struggling to adjust to the afterlife. Niffenegger brings these quirky, troubled characters to marvelous life, but readers may need their own supernatural suspension of disbelief as the story winds to its twisty conclusion.

After reading "The time travellers wife" I was looking forward to reading this book. My feelings about the book are a bit ambivalent. The story certainly has potential and I enjoyed reading it very much at the beginning. Also, the 'story in the story' about Martin's character and his struggle is very good. However, I was disappointed with the unfolding of the story at the end, which is somewhat bizarre and too much "Harry Potter"-like for this kind of book.
Nevertheless, an interesting read.
