Wonderful, moving book told from the perspective of one twin about his life and family. A lot of books stall out, or have long narrative passages; this story seemed to drive forward at all times. I liked that.

This story is engrossing! I was captivated and buzzed through this book in record time. Well developed characters and complex storylines. I thought about this book for a long time afterwards.

I hated this book and only bought it because it was an Oprah book club selection. I quickly learned that she & I have very different tastes.

I couldn't finish this book. It was horrible, disturbing and I don't understand the popularity of it, or how it got published in the first place. I don't recommend it for anyone, especially someone who is sensitive.

Lamb's portrayal of a family dealing with schizophrenia is hauntingly real. Well written, complicated, and sensitive. Too many people have little understanding of what it is really like to live with someone who has a mental illness, but Lamb hit the nail on the head. Well worth the time it takes to read it - you won't soon forget this book.
