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

Where does Sisterland rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

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.
