Review: Half Life

I recently devoured Half Life: A Novel by Shelley Jackson. I’ve been soooo slow at finishing everything lately. But I tore through Half Life in no time at all. I loved it!

The premise seems a bit gimmicky. Conjoined twins and the concept of self and autonomy. But it really works. The ties between Nora and Blanche are fascinating. The story really is about Nora and Blanche, but the other characters are odd and wacky in a manner that I find quite charming.
