The subject matter was very interesting but the execution was slow and tedious The book was about three times as long as it needed to be Most of that extra space was Different Class devoted to long uotations that were only tangentially related to the topic at hand the most maddening to me were passagesescribing impressions of a city given by someone with no ties at all to the twins the fact that the twins had passed through that city was justification enoughThe factual highlights include how entrepreneurial and athletic the twins were how many years they toured but rarely as part of circus like freak show how many children they had how thoroughly Southern they were they owned slaves and they had sons that fought for the Confederacy and their method for sharing time between their familiesmy favorite uote A Herald Man at the Hyphenated Brethren s Home Chang and Eng Bunker s lives were absolutely fascinating They were probably the first truly famous Asian Americans in America Successful and intelligent they would be on tv shows like The View and Oprah if they were alive today Although if they were alive today they would have been separated at birth They medical know how to The Essential Good Food Guide do soid not exist Textbook of Wisdom during their lifetimeI would give this book three and a half stars if possible It is a very factual biography relying a lot on letters and that sort of thing The first half of the book is a little boring The book gets uite interesting once the twins settleown and get married The book tries to answer uestions like How In Defence of Dogs did they have sex Howid they treat their slaves How id they get along with each other Did they want to be separated So basically I ended up really liking itI googled for info and iscovered that somebody has written a The City in Mind different book which is a fictionalized account of their life Ion t think it sounds like a very accurate book because the author says they would have Revenge (The Red Ledger died if they had stayed in Siam No they wouldn t have They were very much alive and successful there He also says that Chang was theim witted one According to The Two the twins had No One Wants You different personalities but both twins seemed intelligentSo I would recommend.

This factual biography over a fictionalized novel The truth is very interestingThere are photos at the end of the book One of my last AABB book swap finds I took forever to ecide to read it because it has a musty falling apart book jacket that I thought I would lose if I carried it around much I was right but it s not in terrible conditionI ve always been kind of fascinated by conjoined twins so reading about the original Siamese Twins was pretty interesting The story encompasses a lot of topics actually not just conjoined twins but also SiamThailand in the 19th century the vaudeville circuit and a bit about the Civil WarI found the book to be a little slow at times particularly in its coverage of the melodrama of the Twins early management and the later melodrama of the marital situation but it was all worth reading The minutia of life as a conjoined twin was covered a bit less than I expected mostly because the Twins lived in a time when tell all stories weren t really as graphic as they would be now Still it seemed that the brothers were uite willing to share their lives with the audience at least when they were younger and their openness is pretty impressive when you consider the attitudes many people have about freaks I found their later life to be amazing though it made for somewhat boring reading simply because of the acceptance of their unusual family in a small Southern communityThe book wasn t can t put it own engrossing but it got a 4th star for being about an unusual subject and covering so much etail Kind of a weird read but uniue enough to be entirely worth the experience Read this years ago 3 12 4 Stars AudibleA very interesting and informative bookIt tells the history of other twins that livedbut non were so spectaculor as these menMichael Adashefski gave a fine performance in sideshow barker styleI was given this free review copy audiobook at my reuest and have voluntarily left this review If 12 stars were an option I would give the book 2 12 stars The story of Chang and Eng is fascinating but the book borders on boring and the authors put in so many uotes letters and newspaper snippets Es The Two Jakes Jack Nicholson's seuel to Roman Polanski's Chinatown picks up years after its predecessor finding Jake Gittes Nicholson still mourning the Divine Beauty death of Katherine Mulwray Gittes which of the two French translation – Linguee Many translated example sentences containing which of the two – French Englishictionary and search engine for French translations Jeux two Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone dots Jeuxcliccom Jeux twoots Take Two Two foxes puzzle Two friends at school coloring Connect the Down to the Sea in Ships dots toys The two towers mud Jouers maintenant et gratuitement ces jeux The Two Popes Rotten Tomatoes The Two Popes Critics Consensus Led by outstanding performances from its well matched leads The Two Popes Wife by Wednesday (The Weekday Brides, draws absorbingrama from a pivotal moment in modern organized religion Two Rock | Reverb Two Rock Amplification has swiftly risen to the top.
