The Thornthwaite Inheritance - Gareth P Jones
The Thornthwaite Inheritance
By Gareth P. Jones
The Thornthwaite Inheritance is about identical twins, Lorelli and Ovid Thornthwaite. They live in a creepy mansion without a mother or father and are completely cut off from the rest of the village. Another thing which makes them different from most thirteen-year-olds is that they spend their time trying to kill each other.
It starts with a truce which causes a chain of events leading to the explanation of everything that happened to their parents. It gets very complicated towards the end when their history is uncovered. I would recommend reading this book when you are in the mood to work things out. If you read this when you are tired, you will get confused.
Overall, it is a great book, filled with action, mystery and murder. It is fun to read and I couldn’t put it down. As the plot unravels, remember, everything is not always as it seems.
