"TWIN TOWERS: A SIBLING LOVE STORY"- Book Review by AMANDA BARNES, ALTON GAZETTE, HAMPSHIRE, UK. This novel is a heady mix of law,love, hate and revenge.Don't be misled by the title- Twin Towers has nothing to do with 9/11. The tales of twin sisters are cleverly entwined and, although there is never a moment in the book where they meet, their paths cross throughout in this dark and tragic tale.The innocent use of language keeps the reader at comfort level despite some sexual episodes and antics. I use as an example: "I'm not much of a one for bottoming on men's laps". The language is very playful whilst nostalgic of an earlier time.
The novel has plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader entertained and on the edge. There are moments in the book which are reminiscent of a Jerry Springer episode. However, unlike Jerry Springer, the climax of the novel is left until the terribly dramatic finale. William clearly has a warm sense of humour and although the tale is twisted and dark, sparks of child-like humour- such as the naming of Professor Ian Farting-Bottom- keep the novel light.
The novel opens with a law case which sets the tone for the rest of the book.The characters are on trial and the reader eagerly anticipates the outcome. The narrator is objective and matter-of-fact and it is William's unpretentious and open narrative voice that makes Twin Towers an enjoyable and easy read. It is a short novel that I would recommend for long journeys or a few hours snuggled up on the sofa - AMANDA BARNES.
