Read full description of the books Sibs:Like F. Paul Wilson's other books, this one is full of suspense and compelling characters. Kara travels to New York City to try to understand her twin's apparent suicide. Kelly was engaged in a threesome and jumped or was thrown out the window of a high rise. Kara can't believe this behavior fits with her twin's personality and lifestyle. Throughout the book, the possible explanations for Kelly's behavior and her death expand and change as Kara becomes more and more entwined in her sister's world. Some of the twists and turns I expected, others took me by surprise.
The book was published over 20 years ago and is set in the 90s, but at times the characters' attitudes seem more fitting to the 70s. For instance, one night Kara drinks too much and passes out. Her ex-boyfriend Rob, who is portrayed as still loving her, stays the night. When Kara wakes up, she is relieved to find Rob didn't have sex with her while she was unconscious. This makes her think what a great guy he is. I found this appalling -- what was she doing with a guy who she thinks even might be capable of that? The fact that Kara is allegedly a feminist makes this even more surprising. Also, it's a little hard to like Rob when he chuckles over Kara's supposed feminism, which involves things he thinks are ridiculous, like the idea of wanting her daughter to be aware of ways the media exploits women's bodies. The good thing about these types of passages is that they reminded me that things really have changed (though slowly) in this regard.
For writers, reading the book now highlights how changing cultural attitudes can affect the way readers view characters. It's also a good study in how to work in supernatural aspects of a mystery to make them believable to both the characters in the book and readers.
