    1. Gosh I read this fast – seriously once started there is no stopping so there’s a slight warning for you. Don’t try and fit “just a couple of chapters” in before you have to go somewhere.The Sisters is a tense and very gripping psychological thriller, totally twisted in the best way possible – in this case rather than one protagonist you just can’t work out and who will drive you mad, you have two.Abi has lost her twin and is a bit lost herself. Seeing Lucy everywhere she goes, she [...]


    2. When I saw this was sold as 'for fans of The Girl on the Train' on the cover, I was dubious. Numerous thrillers have lured me in with similarly dressed promotions, only for me to discover that either the statement is completely false, or the book is nothing more than a sub-par imitation. Imagine my surprise, when this book turns out to be deserving of its accolade!The sisters is a book revolving around Abi, the one remaining twin who survived after a tragic accident. Almost two years later and s [...]


    3. Creepy.icker fiddle feathers!!!!!!!Its not like this book is first rate literature--or educational--nor would I say the prose is exquisite ever, it 'is' an adrenaline rush! A fast read -one sitting- race to the finish line.with unstable, inscrutable characters. Dead or alive( doesn't seem to make any difference).e in THIS novel,it's DOUBLE YOU FUN, DOUBLE YOUR PLEASURE with TWO sets of TWINS!Highly recommended for adrenaline addicts, caffeine addicts, chaos addicts, codependency addicts, relatio [...]


    4. I had seen The Sisters around a lot and knew it was a book I wanted to get to though it took me a fair while. My reading mountain is alarmingly huge!! Abi, our main character, is now living in Bath, after the death of her twin sister, Lucy. Dying in a car accident where Abi had been the driver, Abi is now racked with grief and guilt as she tries to come to terms with the tragedy. She meets Beatrice, a vivacious, charismatic young woman who looks uncannily like Lucy. Abi is immediately entranced [...]


    5. I am going to be truthful, I selected ‘The Sisters’ purely due to its great jacket and a tagline ‘One Lied One Died’ that I thought was really good in its simplicity and I believed promised thrills and perhaps, I hoped, psychological suspense. It delivered neither.The major problem I have with The Sisters is that it reads like a creative writing task, and one that was rushed to meet a deadline. To make matters worse, for the first few chapters I was convinced I’d been reading a teenage [...]


    6. Don't you just love a book that you read cover to cover in one sitting? This is exactly what I did with The Sisters, it swallowed up a whole Friday evening and I loved it! This is a really interesting psychological drama thriller that has some fascinating and surprising twists at the end. You might see it coming, you might now. Abi is still grieving and feeling terrible about the death of her twin sister Lucy. Bea and Ben are twins and Bea bears a striking resemblance to Abi/Lucy and they are pu [...]


    7. Abi has moved to Bath to try & make a fresh start in life after the devastating death of her identical twin sister Lucy. She meets the very colourful Beatrice (who reminds her so much of Lucy) & her twin brother Ben and this is where things start to get really interesting.This is a really good psychological thriller with lots of twists & turns that keep you wondering until the end – Who’s lying, Who’s telling the truth, Who exactly is manipulating who & can you trust any of [...]


    8. Loved this book, another fantastic gripping psychological thriller. From the first page I was hooked and I did not want to put it down, I became totally enthralled in Abi's world. The story is fast paced and you are not sure who is telling the truth and who is telling lies which keeps the suspense level high. I would highly recommend this book


    9. Um Tesouro chamado VerdadeUm thriller psicológico, visualmente bem construído, onde o leitor é indirectamente convidado a participar numa frenética Caça ao Tesouro



    10. Apesar do meu considerável entusiasmo ao longo do livro, acabei por ficar bastante desiludida com a sua conclusão.Sem saber bem o que esperar do livro, este começou por parecer muito mais interessante do que aquilo que acabou por ser na realidade. Irmãs é um daqueles livros que só funciona porque nos é ocultada a maior parte da informação e, no meu caso, quando esta informação foi revelada, todo o enredo passou a parecer-me ridículo, desacreditando bastante a narrativa. Não lhe dou [...]


    11. Prima cosa: se volete leggere un libro di Claire Douglas, vi consiglio "Local Girl Missing", che è un vero e proprio thriller e mi è piaciuto molto come l'autrice ha strutturato quella storia.The Sister è il primo romanzo scritto da questa autrice, e nonostante la sua scrittura sia sempre molto buona e scorrevole, non penso proprio che questo libro possa essere messo dentro alle categorie dei thriller, forse nella narrativa. Ma di thriller non ha proprio niente. Per farvela breve, perchè vog [...]


    12. An effortlessly read thriller cum mystery cum drama from newly established author - and winner of a glossy magazines search to find the next big literary star - this is an enjoyable and darkly fascinating story of Abi who is recovering from the sudden death of her twin sister Lucy. When Abi meets the beautiful, vivacious and outspoken Beatrice and soon after her twin brother Ben, she begins to think that they are what is missing from her life since Lucy's death. But shortly after moving into the [...]



    13. Este livro manteve o meu interesse da primeira à última página. Muito intrigante, impele-nos a ler mais e mais para tentar deslindar o que se está a passar. Recomendo aos amantes de thrillers.


    14. The first thing that struck me about The Sisters was how adeptly I was pulled into the story from the opening pages. You meet Abi who is reeling from the death of her beloved twin sister. As well as grief she is experiencing terrible guilt and she is needy and fragile. Abi meets and becomes involved with another set of twins - the glamorous and privileged Beatrice and Ben who seem golden siblings with their five storey house in Bath complete with artworks and a brace of artist lodgers. Claire Do [...]


    15. Arrebatador! É daqueles livros que prende o leitor logo desde a primeira página e que não queremos que acabe.


    16. Brilliant!Would totally recommend this. Kept a few things up her sleeve the whole way through. Well written, tight language and vivid descriptions. Don't miss a chance to read this one. I don't want to give anything away for this one. Just read it.


    17. Sooooo, here is my confession: I judge books by their covers. I picked up The Sisters by Claire Douglas based on the cover and tag line. It was set in Britain so I was eagerly awaiting to read this book in one shot. Two days laterTHE SISTERSWritten by Claire DouglasMAY 31, 2016 (already released in UK 2015); 363 PagesGenre: suspense, mystery(I received an ARC from the EDELWEISS in exchange for an honest review.)​​★★After the loss of her twin sister, Abi has moved to Bath to be closer to [...]


    18. After the tragic death of her twin sister Abi moves to Bath to make a new fresh start. It is there she stills sees her twin sister everywhere. Abi is haunted by the memory of her dead sister Lucy all the time. Before Lucy died, Abi was fun and hard-working,and popular within her group of friends. But now Abi has become the sort of person that others try to avoid. Where Abi keeps being haunted by her twin Lucy she thinks she has seen her sister but it is someone handing out flyers who makes and s [...]


    19. Could these characters be MORE unlikeable and shallow? Obviously not. This book tested my nerves and patience all day! And Abi dear, did you really need 300 pages to get the idea of leaving the house (where, btw, you live rent free) when suspecting that someone there is trying to harm you and drive you mad?!


    20. I really enjoyed this one. The tension just kept building and just when I thought it was going one way, it would veer off into different territory. I think fans of psychological suspense will really like this book.


    21. ooooh! if like me you love an unreliable narrative, lots of twists and turns, dark and deep secrets, strange and sick individuals and a fast moving, extremely tense and gripping psychological thriller then you will devour this one. 4.5 stars.


    22. Having pre-ordered this book a couple of months ago, I was anxious to sit down and get stuck in, and I wasn't disappointed. Abi has moved to Bath from London to try and start a new life after the death of her twin sister, Lucy. She has been through a lot and is very fragile and vulnerable, and when she meets artist Beatrice, she is very quickly drawn into her circle of friends, which includes her twin brother Ben. Abi grows close to both Beatrice and Ben, and as these relationships progress, the [...]


    23. This is an utterly gripping psychological thriller. Once started, it won’t let you put it down. It is told from the viewpoints of two characters: Abi, struggling to comes to terms with the death of her twin sister, and Bea, glamorous and wealthy, but troubled. When Abi moves into the house that Bea owns and shares with her twin brother, Ben, and a collection of artistic lodgers, strange things begin to happen: treasured letters go missing and menacing messages are left in Abi’s room. It quic [...]


    24. 4.5/5 stars! Okay wow, I actually flew through this! This book is a psychological thriller with mind fuck after mind fuck. You think you've got it all figured out, that you know who the crazy ass is but then the next page your suddenly sitting there with your jaw plastered to the floor bc it's not that person at all. Or is it?! This is about Abi, a woman who's lost her twin sister, Lucy, in a horrible accident. She moves to Bath to run away from everything that reminds her of Lucy and what happe [...]


    25. This was a really well written psychological thriller which deals with grief, loss, love, trust and guilt so well - all those things we tackle in real every day lives. It tells the story of Abi whose twin sister has recently died. When she meets Bea, who looks like Abi's sister, and Bea is also a twin, they strike up a friendship that at first is magical. It's only when they move in together to Bea's house (I want to live there)that things start to unravel.Though its a gripping thriller, it's al [...]


    26. À Psychological ThrillerI gàve this book five stars because it had me on the edge of my seat the whole time, I 4ead it in one sitting. I could not put it down, I highly recommend it to anybody who enjoys their chillers with lots of twists and turn s with an end ing I did not anticipate,


    27. This book is engaging, that is true. I kept listening, waiting for the promising twists, turns and then the end All strange characters, undeveloped shallow creatures. I can't say I agree with any of the favourable reviews it's reminded me of a Bouquet of Barbed Wire. A complete let down.


    28. Justas seriam 3,5*, recai Para as 4 pois não me custou, em momento nenhum, lê-lo.Um thriller simples, bem pensado, escrito de forma descomplicada e com um final bem engendrado :).Gostei e recomendo.
