Book Review of the Month 3- Her Fearful Symmetry

I have wanted to read this book for a while now and I asked this as a gift for Christmas. I had previously read The Time Travellers Wife so was interested in what Audrey Niffenegger's next novel would be like.

Her Fearful Symmetry is a dark, yet beautifully written ghost story dealing with the relationships of a range of different characters, set amongst the setting of Highgate Cemetery. It is ultimately a love story, addressing the power of love from beyond the grave, and as the magazine Elle states on the back cover of the book " There may be ghosts, but it's human stories that glitter".

I enjoyed this book and like the Time Travellers Wife, was a book that I couldn't put down, hence it has only taken me a couple of days to read.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good ghost story (though it wasn't too spooky) and anyone who wants an orginal love story without the mush.

Good Evening from Pickle Land

Hope to speak to you very soon
