The Gramarians

Overall, I liked The Grammarians by Cathleen Schine, though I didn’t particularly like the twin main characters or the story. Hmmm. I liked the way the sisters lives focused on words from their original twin secret language and the moment their father brought home a huge stand and monstrous dictionary to put on it. It was easy to read and pretty skimmable, in addition to being short. The last ten pages and the ending were the best part of the book. I went into it thinking it was a memoir and was disappointed to discover early on that it was a novel. So, I guess, based on reading my review to myself, I wouldn’t really recommend this one. 🙂
