Publisher's Summary

For identical twins, Kate and Violet are about as unlike as two peas from the same pod can be. Except for their 'Senses', a special kind of intuition that can allow them to see things that are yet to come.
When one day Violet ignites a media storm by predicting a major earthquake in the St Louis area where they live, Kate's normal suburban family life is turned upside down.

Good story

Top 10


What other book might you compare Sisterland to, and why?

To Sittenfeld's previous books "American Wife" and "Prep" which I loved. This isn't quite as brilliant as the other two, but I really enjoyed it nevertheless. The ending felt a little contrived to me, but that's just a small niggle.


What about Laurence Bouvard’s performance did you like?

I thought it was spot on.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It's a quiet story, but very absorbing. The portrayal of the relationship between the two sisters is utterly convincing. There were a few moments which made me laugh out loud.

Brilliant, entertaining, enchanting

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Didn't really know where this book would go, but from the start it sets out it's stall pretty well in the borderline magical arena, but it retains (very well) the core of the title, being about relationships and the ups and downs of family relationships. I was truly enchanted


What did you like best about this story?

The characters are well written and I really enjoyed the different perspectives, all believable (mostly) and easy to spend time with. A lot of the character interactions resonated strongly


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Would have been happy to listen all the way through, never lost interest
