i always wondered about the life of conjoined people..about how they do things that we take for granted. this puts all those questions to rest.
the author actually makes you believe that they are seperate persons,with seperate lifes. a really interesting read

I was expecting more of a historically accurate novel than I received - this is more of a book of fictional personal memories from ONE side of the "double-boy". Overall, an okay read. I didn't care for the time warping back and forth way the author presented this novel.

I enjoyed reading about how, in theory, these twins may have lived -- how they were treated in their small village in Siam, their visits with the King of Siam, their travel to America, marriage, fathering children ... although there are no complete records of every detail of their lives, the author has given a good approximation of how they might have lived, and provided a good story in the process. Recommended.

Very well written - a chapter by chapter, flash back and current style that really works as you see the two points converging. Told from Chang's viewpoint it's an interesting possiblity and mostly focuses on their marriage, and their early life in Siam.

Oh, what a bizarre book! These brothers go through so much in childhood-some even try to seperate them! And they marry sisters and have children! Just reading about how that was done was practically a whole other story in itself!
