    I received this book from the author after a discussion about another book I reviewed - and the basic premise brought back some very embarrassing memories for me! I have to be very careful not to give away any spoilers, even for people who have read it, so I will just say that getting involved with identical twins can be very confusing! It also brought back happy memories of millenium era Manchester, and captures some of the joys and frustrations of the time beautifully - those of us old enough will probably still shudder at the thought of 56k dial-up, Pentium II PC's and Windows 98... and at how wonderful they seemed at the time! The main character, Alex, is a thirty year old, still living at home with his Mum and his sister, Kelly, and seems to have been stuck in a groove ever since his girlfriend at university dumped him, until a chance encounter gives him a chance to get his life back on track. The story is beautifully told, with multiple layers, while at the same time giving us a... More > straightforward romance firmly rooted in family life, with all it's trials and tribulations - while also operating a shell game worthy of the late lamented Elmore Leonard, where not only does the story have a twist in the tail, but it has an entirely different story going on underneath, yet still in plain sight... This is the type of book that rewards re-reading, as you begin to spot more depth, and notice the clues you missed the first time around - although in some cases, you may need to make good use of Google and Wikipedia ( and in one instance with me, XKCD - which I think is a website Alex would love!) This is the first book I have read by Karl Drinkwater, but it will not be the last - if only I can get through my "to read" pile (although it now seems to be becoming a heap!)< Less
