    1. Gosh I read this fast seriously once started there is no stopping so there s a slight warning for you Don t try and fit just a couple of chapters in before you have to go somewhere.The Sisters is a tense and very gripping psychological thriller, totally twisted in the best way possible in this case rather than one protagonist you just can t work out and who will drive you mad, you have two.Abi has lost her twin and is a bit lost herself Seeing Lucy everywhere she goes, she suffers a breakdown we [...]


    2. When I saw this was sold as for fans of The Girl on the Train on the cover, I was dubious Numerous thrillers have lured me in with similarly dressed promotions, only for me to discover that either the statement is completely false, or the book is nothing than a sub par imitation Imagine my surprise, when this book turns out to be deserving of its accolade The sisters is a book revolving around Abi, the one remaining twin who survived after a tragic accident Almost two years later and she still [...]


    3. Creepy.icker fiddle feathers Its not like this book is first rate literature or educational nor would I say the prose is exquisite ever, it is an adrenaline rush A fast read one sitting race to the finish line.with unstable, inscrutable characters Dead or alive doesn t seem to make any difference.e in THIS novel,it s DOUBLE YOU FUN, DOUBLE YOUR PLEASURE with TWO sets of TWINS Highly recommended for adrenaline addicts, caffeine addicts, chaos addicts, codependency addicts, relationship addicts, d [...]


    4. I had seen The Sisters around a lot and knew it was a book I wanted to get to though it took me a fair while My reading mountain is alarmingly huge Abi, our main character, is now living in Bath, after the death of her twin sister, Lucy Dying in a car accident where Abi had been the driver, Abi is now racked with grief and guilt as she tries to come to terms with the tragedy She meets Beatrice, a vivacious, charismatic young woman who looks uncannily like Lucy Abi is immediately entranced with e [...]


    5. I am going to be truthful, I selected The Sisters purely due to its great jacket and a tagline One Lied One Died that I thought was really good in its simplicity and I believed promised thrills and perhaps, I hoped, psychological suspense It delivered neither.The major problem I have with The Sisters is that it reads like a creative writing task, and one that was rushed to meet a deadline To make matters worse, for the first few chapters I was convinced I d been reading a teenage novel and only [...]


    6. Don t you just love a book that you read cover to cover in one sitting This is exactly what I did with The Sisters, it swallowed up a whole Friday evening and I loved it This is a really interesting psychological drama thriller that has some fascinating and surprising twists at the end You might see it coming, you might now Abi is still grieving and feeling terrible about the death of her twin sister Lucy Bea and Ben are twins and Bea bears a striking resemblance to Abi Lucy and they are pulled [...]


    7. Abi has moved to Bath to try make a fresh start in life after the devastating death of her identical twin sister Lucy She meets the very colourful Beatrice who reminds her so much of Lucy her twin brother Ben and this is where things start to get really interesting.This is a really good psychological thriller with lots of twists turns that keep you wondering until the end Who s lying, Who s telling the truth, Who exactly is manipulating who can you trust any of them 4.5


    8. Loved this book, another fantastic gripping psychological thriller From the first page I was hooked and I did not want to put it down, I became totally enthralled in Abi s world The story is fast paced and you are not sure who is telling the truth and who is telling lies which keeps the suspense level high I would highly recommend this book

    10. Apesar do meu consider vel entusiasmo ao longo do livro, acabei por ficar bastante desiludida com a sua conclus o.Sem saber bem o que esperar do livro, este come ou por parecer muito mais interessante do que aquilo que acabou por ser na realidade Irm s um daqueles livros que s funciona porque nos ocultada a maior parte da informa o e, no meu caso, quando esta informa o foi revelada, todo o enredo passou a parecer me rid culo, desacreditando bastante a narrativa N o lhe dou duas estrelas porque p [...]


    11. Prima cosa se volete leggere un libro di Claire Douglas, vi consiglio Local Girl Missing , che un vero e proprio thriller e mi piaciuto molto come l autrice ha strutturato quella storia.The Sister il primo romanzo scritto da questa autrice, e nonostante la sua scrittura sia sempre molto buona e scorrevole, non penso proprio che questo libro possa essere messo dentro alle categorie dei thriller, forse nella narrativa Ma di thriller non ha proprio niente Per farvela breve, perch voglio che capite [...]

    18. Could these characters be MORE unlikeable and shallow Obviously not This book tested my nerves and patience all day And Abi dear, did you really need 300 pages to get the idea of leaving the house where, btw, you live rent free when suspecting that someone there is trying to harm you and drive you mad


    19. I really enjoyed this one The tension just kept building and just when I thought it was going one way, it would veer off into different territory I think fans of psychological suspense will really like this book.


    20. ooooh if like me you love an unreliable narrative, lots of twists and turns, dark and deep secrets, strange and sick individuals and a fast moving, extremely tense and gripping psychological thriller then you will devour this one 4.5 stars.

    22. This is an utterly gripping psychological thriller Once started, it won t let you put it down It is told from the viewpoints of two characters Abi, struggling to comes to terms with the death of her twin sister, and Bea, glamorous and wealthy, but troubled When Abi moves into the house that Bea owns and shares with her twin brother, Ben, and a collection of artistic lodgers, strange things begin to happen treasured letters go missing and menacing messages are left in Abi s room It quickly become [...]

    25. Psychological ThrillerI g ve this book five stars because it had me on the edge of my seat the whole time, I 4ead it in one sitting I could not put it down, I highly recommend it to anybody who enjoys their chillers with lots of twists and turn s with an end ing I did not anticipate,


    26. This book is engaging, that is true I kept listening, waiting for the promising twists, turns and then the end All strange characters, undeveloped shallow creatures I can t say I agree with any of the favourable reviews it s reminded me of a Bouquet of Barbed Wire A complete let down.
