Description

From the author of the #1 bestselling "The Time Traveler's Wife," a spectacularly compelling novel--set in and near Highgate Cemetery in London, about the love between twins, men and women, ghosts and the living.
Julia and Valentina Poole are twenty-year-old sisters with an intense attachment to each other. One morning the mailman delivers a thick envelope to their house in the suburbs of Chicago. Their English aunt Elspeth Noblin has died of cancer and left them her London apartment. There are two conditions for this inheritance: that they live in the flat for a year before they sell it and that their parents not enter it. Julia and Valentina are twins. So were the girls' aunt Elspeth and their mother, Edie.
The girls move to Elspeth's flat, which borders the vast Highgate Cemetery, where Christina Rossetti, George Eliot, Stella Gibbons, and other luminaries are buried. Julia and Valentina become involved with their living neighbors: Martin, a composer of crossword puzzles who suffers from crippling OCD, and Robert, Elspeth's elusive lover, a scholar of the cemetery. They also discover that much is still alive in Highgate, including--perhaps--their aunt.

I bought this book thinking that since it is by the auther of "Time Traveller's Wife", it must be good. But no!! The plot is good. The narration is in simple language. But there's no grip in the story. Its more of a fantacy trying hard to get near the real life but I'm afraid, Its a failure. At the most, its a dedication by the auther to her job. She works in Highgate Cemetery and the book is full of the unnecessary and awkward details about the cemetery, which by the way doesn't even come close in relation to the main story-line. The characters are are unique but you can't picture them in your mind except Martin. The chemistry, love and devotion between Martin and Marijke is good and commendable and Imaginable but the rest of the love stories, either between Robert and Elspeth or that between Jack and Edie or even between Robert and Valentina, are poorly shaped and more of lust, social-peer-pressure, compromise RATHER than true passion. I was not happy. Even the end is very abrupt without any proper conclusion. The depth in the charaterization is lacking. It mat appeal to Londoners 'coz of so-much useless description of its lanes, shops etc!!
