Told in a back and forth style, Identical Strangers recounts how identical twins separated in infancy and adopted by two different families as part of a nature vs. nurture study found each other and set out to learn about the study and to discover who their biological mother was. It’s quite interesting and includes tidbits of information scattered throughout about topics ranging from twinning to what we know about twins who were separated and find each other later to mental health issues. Sometimes the narrative dragged on and got repetitive. Sometimes the women were rather insufferable and not very likable. Overall I enjoyed the book, however, and actually learned quite a bit.
