Review :Dead Ringer by Jessie Rosen left me in a place where I feel unable to make up an opinion about the content of this book as I am not able to decide if its a brilliant psychological thriller or some really bad idea brought to paper. What I know is – I felt bad when reading this book and even if I love feeling the emotions of a book THIS I did not like at all . There was just too much packed into this story that got peeled away like layers from an onion.
And while the peeling itself was good it was the amount of stuff itself that started to feel unbelivable.
I am not even sure if I could give any age recommendation on this story. There is something about this book which is impossible to explain. One of the most special books I have ever read. I still dont know if this is good or bad….
