An unexpected guest could have easily described what the two of them had been up to for the last three days, from the vestiges of their home-body existence cluttering the place. It had to be said- merely dressing themselves or clearing the table was a challenge. And for good reason: living with a twin brother on a daily basis was no mean feat. It required constant compromise. Furthermore, as these brothers were joined at the abdomen, and knew it would always be so, life together could be quite a trial. However, it would be unfair to reduce their situation to such a simplistic observation. They had been living like this for over thirty years now- each had learned to cultivate his own uniqueness, which added a little spice to their life.Jacques was a little gruff and sure of himself, whereas Charlie liked to lend himself a detached and distinguished air. While one of them was yelling in front of a football game on TV or watching a B-grade action movie, the other would be doing his best to concentrate on reading the latest literary prize-winning novel. Actually, no, that was not exactly it. To be fair on Jacques, he also read books occasionally. He was even quite a fan of some science fiction authors. Being a Siamese twin was not always easy, but ....You thought Man was alone on the Earth ? Think again ! They are here too, and they always have been. Full of suspense, this book will have you holding your breath until the last page and beyond. When the most ordinary of humdrum, daily lives is suddenly changed, who can tell where it will lead ?
