Chang and Eng by Darin Strauss.
I'm starting to like historical fiction. It's a nice way to get a glimpse (fictional though it may be) into the minds and lives of historical figures. The book Nefertiti was my first of the genre-and I loved it.
I enjoyed Chang and Eng as well. It wasn't the type of book I had trouble putting down, but it was enjoyable (as well as sad).
Maybe it's my age showing again, but I've discovered I (sometimes) have compassion. And this book made me sad for the twins. Though you have to admit, they had a hell of a life considering the time in which they lived.
