Publisher's Summary

Identical twins Dominick and Thomas Birdsey were born in the waning moments of 1949 and the opening minutes of 1950. Now at 40, Dominick's entire life has been compromised and constricted by anger and fear, by the paranoid schizophrenic twin brother he both loves and resents, and by the past they shared with their adoptive father, Ray, a spit-and polish ex-Navy man, and their long-suffering mother, Concettina. The brothers' relationship undergoes the ultimate test when Thomas commits an unthinkable act that threatens the tenuous balance of both his and Dominick's lives. Wally Lamb's long awaited follow-up to the critically acclaimed novel She's Come Undone is narrated by Tony Award-winning actor Ken Howard.

Disappointing

Much of the substqance of this fine book was lost as a result of it being abridged. I had read the book previously and was grossly disapointed in the audiobook.

I could tell a lot was missing

I really enjoyed this story, but even though I never read the whole book, it was so obvious that there where huge gaps and holes. I still gave it 5 stars, but would love to hear the unabridged version of this. 6 hours is not enough time for character development, or to do justice to a saga like this one. It's a shame neither audible or itunes offers an unabridged version.
