Didn't read the print version.
The twist - didn't see that coming!!
Her emotional attachment to the characters.
Yes, but not until the middle of the book - I was glued to my headphones!
Doubtful. The ending was uneventful.
Rosie. She was cute
The feeling she really had the feelings about her sister
Every time she realized how brave her sister must have been
Another fun listen from Curtis Sittenfeld. Story centers around female twins who share a psychic ability. It's not all "supernatural thriller" tho; this is a modern story with a dash of the magical. And there's enough relationship strain to keep you interested.

I was disappointed, expecting a story more about twins and their psychic abilities and the consequences. Instead it is more about the relationship between two sisters, their differences and similarities, somewhat interesting but not exciting.
Let me start by saying that I LOVE Curtis Sittenfeld. Prep is one of my all-time favorites. Having said that, Sisterland is just as well written and Rebecca Lowman's performance is excellent. However, the story is so boring for the majority of the book I almost felt like giving up on it. The 1st 80% of the book consists of Kate's flashbacks (most of which are completely irrelevant) and her interactions with Vi/Jeremy/Hank/the kids in present day. A ton of focus is put on Vi's earthquake prediction for the first 80% of the book. But then, it seems as though it was just written off in a few sentences as we moved on to the other big plot development. I almost felt duped--I had built up all of this anticipation for Oct 16th, only to be let down. Then it was like I was reading a completely different story in the last 20%. And the last 20% was the best part! In hindsight, I wish that Oct 16th would have just happened somewhere around the halfway point, so we could have explored the aftermath a bit more fully.
the intimacy of authentic feelings, misgivings, steadfast love and the messiness of real relationships.
I imagined Jennifer Jason Leigh as the psychic sister.
I can't say that I loved the book but I did finish it and was curious to know how it would all end up. Being an identical twin myself, I found some of the situations and dialogue between the sisters to be spot on. Otherwise I thought the twins were generally an unlikable pair.
Yes, I liked American Wife very much and am going to listen to other books by author
