This is one of my favorite books. It's out of print but if you can find it, I swear it is well worth reading. I've read it probably 5 times or more. I've given copies of this book to all my friends over the years. My son found a copy of it for me a few years ago and I wouldn't let it go for anything in the world. I love this book. This story touches me in so many ways. It's funny and emotional. Nadine wants so much from her relationship with the twins - she's obsessed with the twins. She talks her best friend into meeting them and they end up getting married, the four of them in a marriage - the twins being attached at the waist, and all. And what was wonderful for Nadine before the marriage becomes a burden. Dianne imposes sexual limitations on the four of them and the intense feelings Nadine had prior to the marriage become suppressed. They have children and move to Maine where the men open a car repair shop, Diane works as a lawyer and Nadine takes care of all of them. Then the twins get separated and they find that separate lives are not what they thought it would be. Nadine comes to realize that she thought she loved the men when they were joined, when they were freaks, but finds that may not have been true, even then.
I thought this book was witty, and sad, and hilarious all at the same time. The subject makes it sound like it will be a corny story, but it's really not. It's a great character study in which we follow the narrator through many years of experiences. She makes good and bad decisions, but what is most interesting is her thought process while making those decisions. Rossner fans will love this one.
I only read this book due to a mistake. I ordered the book Attachments by Rainbow Rowell and received this one instead. I had nothing else to read this weekend, so gave it a try. It was interesting at times, sad much of the time and not something I would have picked up on my own.
Absolutely bizarre novel about two female friends that marry Siamese twins. Oddly erotic, if that's your fetish.
One of the strangest books I've ever read. Best friends marry siamese twins. And learn valuable life lessons along the way...
Siamese twins! And Siamese twin sex! Yay!
An unusual, weird plot. Kind of incestuous. But doesnt make you feel uncomfortable. Sad in parts.
I read this a very long time ago. My main memories of the book are that it involved siamese twins and I thought it a very strange book indeed!
