Side note: These don’t have motors. They’re completely momentum/wind-powered and literally just wander around beaches unsupervised like giant abstract monsters.

these are both amazing and COMPLETELY TERRIFYING

i’m unreasonably freaked out and disturbed by these

Is this in some kind of uncanny valley?? It’s like an uncanny Communist march or something.

And for some reason I can’t help but imagine these things eternally striding across a barren, lifeless world.

I’ve discovered there’s a lot you can do inside haunted houses.

You can reverse the flow of the hotdogs if you concentrate hard enough

oh my god you can

Or you can make them go back and forth, which gets weirder…

if you squint the hotdogs reverse direction

I liked Audrey Niffeneggar’s Her Fearful Symmetry more than I liked The Time Traveler’s Wife. When I first read the latter book I thought it was one of the most wonderful stories I had ever read. It was magical, it was interesting, it was lovely, and almost believable. When I tried to reread…

I feel the same way for the most part

Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger (2009)
Her Fearful Symmetry is… hmm… how do I give this book a coherent plot summary? Elspeth died and she left her London apartment to her two American nieces, Julia and Valentina, who are twins. The twins’ mother is Elspeth’s twin sister who migrated to the U.S. after they had a rather nasty spat. Elspeth’s young lover, Robert, befriends the nieces as per Elspeth’s will, which results to jealousy both from the living and the dead. Also, they have this neighbor named Martin who has crippling OCD and was recently left by his wife Marijke. I still don’t know what their roles were in the overall plot but Marijke is my favourite character but that’s simply because she was hardly even there.
Let me be blunt. This is the worst book I have read in 2013. I don’t know what it is. I adored Niffenegger’s The Time Traveler’s Wife and was really excited when I first heard about Her Fearful Symmetry a few years back. It seemed like it had so much potential, what with a dead aunt and twins and all. But it just didn’t work for me. It began slow and steady and everything was fine until halfway through the book when shit happens. The characters go crazy. And the thing is I couldn’t see the reason behind their actions at all. Maybe there wasn’t enough character depth or background for me to feel sympathetic, I don’t know. I keep thinking the plot could’ve worked if only the characters were better written. I don’t know! All I know is, by the end of the book, I felt cheated.
I wish I could’ve given this a more positive review but I really can’t. Her Fearful Symmetry left such a bad taste in my mouth that even though it’s been more than a month since I finished the book, the ending still makes me want to pull my hair out.

You seem to have missed some of the plot.
