Review: The Ice Twins
All love is a form of suicide.
Sarah and Angus appeared to have it all: a beautiful home, a set of identical twins and a faithful dog. But behind closed doors things weren't that perfect. And the death of their twin girl brings everything to light. But exactly which twin died? Why does the child keep switching names? What did happen that night?
The tension in the book is so thick you'd need a knife to slice through it. Both Angus and Sarah keep many things hidden from the reader, and yet, the twins don't fall into the background. It's a beautiful (literary) mess and love plays a major role. Whether it's the preference of one child to another, or simply what happens to couples after children are born. The author really thought these topics through and concocted a crazy scenario.
A great read that takes place in Scotland.
