ONE AND THE SAME My Life as an Identical Twin and What I've Learned About Everyone's Struggle to Be Singular

by | Read by Justine Eyre

Biography & Memoir • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Abigail Pogrebin, an identical twin, examines "twinness" in every way possible. She mixes her own experiences with those of others into an engaging exploration of heredity and psychology. Her book purports to include her answer to the most common question people ask her: "What was it like to have grown up with an exact likeness?" She mentions some scientific studies, but her own ideas fill most of the discussion. Narrator Justine Eyre's comfortable manner makes her seem like the author talking. She sometimes assumes a silliness appropriate to a light topic but can morph into a serious mode for an academic discussion, for example, of twin dependency or competition. In the interviews, Eyre individualizes the various characters by giving each one a hasty personality. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2010]
