*Like a fifty fifty on life basicly i dont know i guse you will have to read it to get *a fifty fifty on life basicly i dont know i guse you will have to read it to get An nticing concept vividly written Lawrence has a fluid and vivid writing style and creates believable protagonists in Alaric and Naia Alaric and Naia Underwood both live in an old Victorian house in a small village They both have dark hair and the same nose and the same parents They Invisible (The Curse of Avalon even have the same bedroom But Alaric and Naia have never met they don tven live in the same world Things have been difficult for Alaric since his mother died in a train accident two years ago after being given a fiftyfifty chance of survival When Alaric travels to an alternate timeline he meets Naia who is the female version of himself But the bigger difference between Naia s world and his own is that Naia s mother lived and his didn t Naia has been living the perfect life that Alaric could only dream of until he saw it for himself Together Alaric and Naia try to understand how they could both Yummy Supper exist and meet one another But things becomeven complicated when Alaric discovers that there are other alternate realitiesThe first book in the Aldous Lexico trilogy follows two different versions of the same person one female and one male book provides an in depth look into how one variable can alter so much and how one decision can your life This isn t the first story I ve read or watched that deals with alternate realities but it s how the author handles it that makes this book so special Everything was thought out perfectly and the idea that started the story is xpanded on throughout the novel There is a reasonable although complicated reason for Alaric and Naia being able to visit the alternate worlds which some stories with similar plots lack I was a bit worried about reading a book where the two main characters are practically the same person but there are so many differences between Naia and Alaric not only from their different sexes but also from Alaric losing his mother while Naia did not For this reason Naia is much well adjusted and happier and also had time and nergy to put into her schoolwork making her smarter than Alaric The one flaw that comes to mind is that at times the story was slow moving but the twist Deep Listening ending made me want to pick up the seuel right away If you live outside of the UK this book might be difficult.
