The Identicals: A Novel

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Elin Hilderbrand

Narrated By: Erin Bennett

Publisher: Hachette Book Group USA

Date: June 2017

Duration: 12 hours 53 minutes


Identical twin sisters who couldn't look more alike...or live more differently.

Harper Frost is laid-back, easygoing. She doesn't care what anyone thinks of her. She likes a beer and a shot and wouldn't be caught dead wearing anything fashionable. She's inherited her father's rundown house on Martha's Vineyard, but she can't hold down a job, and her latest romantic disaster has the entire island talking.

Two beautiful islands only eleven miles apart.

Tabitha Frost is dignified, refined. She prefers a fine wine and has inherited the impeccable taste of her mother, the iconic fashion designer Eleanor Roxie-Frost. She's also inherited her mother's questionable parenting skills--Tabitha's teenage daughter, Ainsley, is in full rebellion mode--and a flailing fashion boutique on Nantucket in desperate need of a cash infusion.

One unforgettable summer that will change their lives forever.

After more than a decade apart, Harper and Tabitha switch islands--and lives--to save what's left of their splintered family. But the twins quickly discover that the secrets, lies, and gossip they thought they'd outrun can travel between islands just as easily as they can. Will Harper and Tabitha be able to bury the hatchet and end their sibling rivalry once and for all? Before the last beach picnic of the season, there will be enough old resentments, new loves, and cases of mistaken identity to make this the most talked-about summer that Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket have experienced in ages.

    This book would be better if the main characters were more likeable: two extremely self-centered, annoying, identical twins who go through life caring about no one except themselves. They have an equally wretched mother and a truly detestable daughter/niece. Weak story line, very weak characters.

    I couldn't get past the first few chapters. It felt like listening to a text book.

    Didn’t like this book at all. The story was awful and boring. I only listened to a few chapters and then gave up in it.

    I enjoyed the book for the most part and the development of the characters, but some characters and side storylines were introduced and not woven in well and were not resolved adequately by the end of the book.

    Started off interesting, fell a little, but then the narration had me hooked and I couldn't wait to get in my car for traveling to and fro!
