Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger

Her Fearful SymmetryThis is the second novel by the author of The Time Traveler’s Wife and, like in that book, the plot depends on supernatural occurrences. Twin sisters inherit an apartment near Highgate Cemetery in London from the twin sister of their mother, with the stipulation that they must live in it for one year and their mother may not enter. I was interested in these characters and enjoyed the writing up until the appearance of the first ghost. The writing continued to be good and I enjoyed the various inhabitants of the London apartment building that was the center of life for the deceased aunt (ghost) and, increasingly, of the twins. I did find the plot a little complicated with spirits and people, and a little thin as well, but it was worth the read for the novelty and for the characters.
