Book Review - Think Twice

Think Twice by Lisa Scottoline


Is evil born in us - or is it bred? That is the question at the heart of this penetrating novel from blockbuster New York Times bestseller Lisa Scottoline.

Bennie Rosato looks exactly like her identical twin, Alice Connelly, but the darkness in Alice's soul makes them two very different women. Or at least that's what Bennie believes-until she finds herself buried alive at the hands of her twin.

Meanwhile, Alice takes over Bennie's life, impersonating her at work and even seducing her boyfriend in order to escape the deadly mess she has made of her own life. But Alice underestimates Bennie and the evil she has unleashed in her twin's psyche. Soon Bennie, in her determination to stay alive long enough to exact revenge, must face the twisted truth that she is more like Alice than she could have ever imagined....and by the novel's shocking conclusion, Bennie finds herself engaged in a war that she cannot win - with herself.


This was an excellent book. I don't really agree with the summary about Bennie becoming evil because her twin was. That was just silly. But the story kept me on my toes. I think I read this book in just a few days. Some of it was a little unrealistic - as in, this stuff doesn't really happen to people, but it was a still a good "page turner" book. I will say that I have read better books by this author (Save Me was amazing), but this one was good as well.

I saw this at Target the other day and thought it looked good. I looked it up on Good Reads and it looks like there are a ton of books featuring the main characters. I am going to have to check them out!
