This book really only becomes chilling at the very end. Otherwise, it's a story about miscommunication that makes the reader want to shriek to the protagonists, "Just say what you mean!" None of the main characters is especially sypathetic except the dog.
The pace can be maddeningly glacial, largely because the central character spends an enormous amount of time paraphrasing her thoughts.
The narration is good.

Maybe this is one of those rare books that's better read than listened to. Whatever the reason, in spite of terrific narration ( wonderful accents) and evocative descriptive prose, the dialog thwarted me at every turn. Why not simply embrace the supernatural angle and go with that?? I found I had to repeat sections often to keep track of which twin was "active". Probably worth another listen down the road sometime.
