review The Midnight Twins

The Midnight Twins

Er a mysterious and nearly fatal fi re on their thirteenth birthday Meredith and Mallory Brynn begin having visions Mallory can see into the past Mer. I know identical twins often have a connection but this book took things a little into the supernatural world The twin girls can see each other s dreams and communicate very strongly with each other They not only feel each other s pain but can predict the future so their lives get complicated when they start seeing death Someone is going to get raped or killed and the girls have to try to stop himI liked The Deep End of the Ocean but I struggled with this book Not only were Mallory and Meredith interchangeable but the other characters didn t have much personality either I felt like I needed a character list because the author didn t do a very good job distinguishing between them And the writing was choppy For example when the book is almost over p 214 the following paragraph occurs That was true enough Despite everything Kim had lost the only brother she would ever have unless Bonnie and David adopted a Chinese baby or something And they were old at least probably forty like her parents The twins are supposedly smart and almost 14 I really don t think they would throw the Chinese baby comment out there There were lots of moments like these during the book that I just thought Really

A beautiful and suspenseful tale by a master American novelist The Midnight Twins tells the story of mirror twins born on either side of midnight Aft. on sale 7 3 08 young adult fictionMitchard is a rare breed of writer who can capture the emotions and hearts of both the adult fiction and the teen fiction world She s the author of the tearjerking Deep End of the Ocean among many other books I agree with the publisher that this book is a 12 and up it deals with some fairly violent themes as the book goes on but the story is gripping and suspenseful and easily kept THIS adult s attention in fact there were points where I couldn t turn the pages fast enoughThis is the story of Mally and Merry identical twins who on the eve of their 13th birthday discover there is to their minds and talents than just being able to communicate with each other telepathically not unheard of in twins especially identicals These new talents begin to tear their lives apart as they pull away from each other trying to deal with andor deny them But they are a part of a generations old tradition of powerful women and what is reuired of them cannot be avoided or denied and it s very nearly the death of themThe story is tight for the vast majority of the book my only gripe is with the last chapter Mitchard becomes a bit ham handed trying to tie up too many loose ends and give the reader the back stories of too much My best guess is she s trying to lay the groundwork for a follow up novel with these characters but it was done in such a below par way I was severely disappointed it was tedious and anticlimatic For that reason alone I give it 4 out of 5 stars

    I have a hunch that this will be one of those series that people pick up because the cover looks pretty and there’s a pretty famous author’s name on it Otherwise THE MIDNIGHT TWINS is a jumbled jumpy and gnarled mess of characters ooooo spooky events and rushed conclusionsI understand that the twins at 13 years old an

    actual rating 25 starsI really wanted to read this book being a twin and all but I was not pleased at all This book somewhat offended me to say the least This book mentions twin telepathy and other unbelievable things that are suited for things such as children's books Although the author did express that the twin telepathy in this book was exaggerated it was still to biased The book mentions how twins often think of themselves a
