Описание

From the blockbuster New York Times bestselling author of Look Again comes a novel that makes you question the nature of evil: is it born in us or is it bred?

Bennie Rosato looks exactly like her identical twin, Alice Connolly, but the darkness in Alice's soul makes them two very different women. Or at least that's what Bennie believes, until she finds herself buried alive at the hands of her twin.

Meanwhile, Alice takes over Bennie's life, impersonating her at work and even seducing her boyfriend in order to escape the deadly mess she has made of her own life. But Alice underestimates Bennie and the evil she has unleashed in her twin's psyche, as well as Bennie's determination to stay alive long enough to exact revenge.

Bennie must face the twisted truth that she is more like her sister Alice than she could have ever imagined, and by the novel's shocking conclusion, Bennie finds herself engaged in a war she cannot win-with herself.

A Macmillan Audio production.

    In the story Bennie helps her identical twin sister she (didn't know she had), Alice. After Alice shows up, Bennie agrees to represent her and beat a jail sentence. But now Alice is jealous of everything Bennie has. Alice tries to murder Bennie and buries her alive in a box, believing she is dead. Alice starts to live Bennie's life and takes over completely. She becomes Bennie and everyone believes it, because they look exactly the same, she has Bennies cell phone, ID, credit cards, car and even her boyfriend Grady. One thing Alice never expected thought was that her sister might escape, and when she does it gets much harder to try and maintain her lie.
    Scottoline's books are fast paced and thrilling to the very end where they always become hokey a With everyone ending up just a little too happy.

    It has the same story as the novel (duh!) which probably made it less exciting. I was a bit disappointed with the drawings. Percy and Annabeth and the others has these weird expressions which makes their faces quite "ugly". If you're a fan then you can buy this one but if not then I suggest that you stick with the novels themselves. Overall, it was an easy read.

    The story and plot were ok for me. Had a hard time connecting with many of the characters in it. Also the end was too neatly tied up for me.

    I had no idea that this was part of a series till well into the CD's. I think I would have liked to have known for some of the back story but I think this stood alone very well.

    Alice drugged her twin sister, Benny, and took over her life. There is a little too much death for me, I think the story could of been told just as well with less people dying but I enjoyed it. Now to go back to the begging or just move forward.

    "Think Twice" by Lisa ScottolineFantastic book! Lisa Scottoline is a master at writing suspense. Identical twins, one evil, one good. One wanting what the other has. What does that equal to you? You got it. Chaos. Without giving too much away, I'll tell you this: one twin (Alice) buries the other (Bernie) alive. Alice has her reasons, as twisted as they are. Bernie manages to free herself and literally gives Alice a run for her money.Give yourself a break and read this one. But warning: once you pick it up, you won't be able to put it down.

    I started this book and then apologized to my husband, because I did not put the book down until I finished it. What an exciting book, and being a twin, I especially enjoyed the twin part. The plot could be considered unbelievable to my way of thinking but to those whom are evil, I suppose this could be a reality. Years ago, there was a school bus buried;, with the children in it, so NOTHING is beyond evil. If you like mystery, family, friends, and lovers intertwined in your readings, this is the one for you. And if you haven't ever read a mystery, THIS is the one to start with. I heartily recommend this book to all who love a great plot.
  • (2/5)
    The biggest mystery in this book is not one of who-did-what or will-that-someone-get-her-comeuppance? The biggest mystery is one of IQ. How could so many purportedly intelligent or capable or trained minds have been so impossibly dumb?

    *****WARNING: DANGER, WILL ROBINSON, PLOT SPOILERS APLENTY AHEAD*****

    Brilliant and successful lawyer, “Bennie,” has a body to die for — and an an identical evil twin, Alice. Both women are so driven — Bennie in a “good” way and Alice in an “evil” way — that neither one has developed any close friendships with members of either gender. But Bennie has at least managed to accumulate $3 million in liquid assets. Apparently, evil doesn’t pay as well, since Alice has only got a few thousand from a sideline selling illegal drugs, a Toyota instead of a Lexus, and a gangster trying to kill her.

    As the book opens, Alice has decided to solve her problems by burying Bennie alive, stealing her identity, and making off with all that cash that Bennie has so cleverly left lying around. Bennie walks right into a ruffie because even after having gotten Alice off a murder rap that involved her selling recreational drugs with a cop, Bennie is utterly clueless about the depths of her sister’s depravity.

    Fortunately for Bennie, however, Alice doesn’t kill her. Bothered by the thought of seeing her “own face on a dead body,” Alice instead compassionately chooses to bury Bennie alive in a wooden box — I guess so that she can be bothered by the image of her own face gasping her last while trying to claw her way out of a coffin. It takes Bennie only three days, a _deus ex machina_ in the form of massive haying equipment, and a retarded wolf to escape from the box.

    Meanwhile, Alice has appropriated Bennie’s car, house, password list, boyfriend, and business. She immediately begins schlepping Bennie’s moola into a Bahama-based bank, and develops a closer relationship with one of Bennie's legal minions than Bennie has ever managed.

    Oh, did I mention Bennie’s dog, Bear? Bear is a “huge” dog who is subdued by a few kicks from Alice and a nudge down the cellar stairs. Alice arranges to have Bear put to sleep, but Bennie’s boyfriend-who-got-away-but-who’s-conveniently-back-now instead arranges for the dog to have risky surgery, which ultimately saves this utterly worthless watch dog.

    You know, while reading this book, I spun a half dozen plots-that-never-existed about how various people in Bennie’s life suspected that something was up, only to realize that apparently, no, they were all absolutely as dumb as lumber.

    The only one to suspect was a supposedly wildly successful junior member of the law firm whose business image involved dressing like Ronald McDonald and dying her hair to match. Are we surprised that no one listens to her? I’m haunted by the image of Ronald McDonald serving as my defense attorney.

    Did I mention the frightening uber-witch from Italy? The fake super-strega with a British accent, Armani dresses, and designs on a junior law partner’s deaf and dumpy father? Did I mention that _she_ is the real hero of this story? The only one who can (magically, I guess) tell the difference between a psychopath and a tin-plated saint? The only one who can (magically, I guess) figure out where, geographically, this will all end up and show up just in time to keep our heroine from murdering her deserving evil twin?

    Once Bennie is induced to abandon her I-guess-I’m-as-evil-as-you-are pose, she immediately morphs back into Wonder Woman, and all is forgiven as she resumes the reins of her empire.

    Oh, and whatever happens to Alice? Given Bennie’s epiphany, Alice becomes so unimportant that the author never even bothers to wrap up that loose end. Saying that “she’s as good as dead already,” is apparently more than enough resolution for those of us who wade through to the end.

    Here’s the one good thing I can say about this book — and it is actually a very good thing — I started the book last night and stayed up all night to finish it. So, it does grab and hold one’s attention, even if much of that attention is devoted to spinning alternate plots or marveling at the Munchkin-like size of the cast’s communal IQ.

    To be fair to the author, she obviously spent some mental effort on backstory and motivations. It’s just that she either missed or ignored the huge amount of stupidity required to get this plot to work.

    For reasons of full disclosure, please note that I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway.

    Good novel about good twin/evil twin. Fast paced and a fun read.
  • (3/5)
    A good read about two identical twins – good and evil. Bennie is a lawyer and Alice a very disturbed girl with a dark past. Bennie is buried alive by Alice and in the meantime, Alice takes over her life and everyone thinks she is Bennie; however, Alice underestimates the tenacity of Bennie with a cast full of color characters and associations along the way to freedom from this disaster.
  • (5/5)
    Absolutely a grabber, this book is!! Ms. Scottoline has written a heartwrenching, mind gripping, thriller in "Think Twice"-a story that is realistic about twins who are as different as night and day-but are they really that different? Only the reader will be able to tell. The story keeps you interested without letting you down at all. The ending was interesting, but is there a "sequel" in the works? Could very well be!!

    Wow, great read. Just goes to show people that family isn't always the one who will save you. Another great book from Lisa Scottoline
  • (4/5)
    Bennie Rosato and Alice Connolly are identical twins who were separated at birth. Bennie is a successful lawyer, Alice is a successful criminal who resents her sister's success. Alice decided to become Bennie but she has a problem, what is she going to do with her? She slips a drug into her drink and plans to kill her. She takes over her life, her money even her boyfriend. Alice is just not a nice person..My thoughts:I like Lisa Scottoline's books. I am sure them being set in Philadelphia and me being born and raised there helps. I like Bennie, her friend and co-worker Mary DeNunzio, who is having some problems of her own. Think Twice lets us visit again with the lovable and a bit strange DeNunzio family with an added twist, a visit from a very sexy cousin who is said to be a straga, a witch and it seems she has put a spell on Papa DeNunzio! The DeNunzio family is always good for a laugh among all the serious stuff going on around them.If you suffer at all from claustrophobia the first half of this book will be a tough read, at least it was hard for me to listen to it. Watching Alice get away with madness and fooling everyone is interesting to watch unfold.I dont want to give too much away, but if you like a good edge of your seat suspense read, give Think Twice a try.

    I don't even know where to start. I suppose if I am to start by saying something good, then I should say that at least I only paid half price for the book. As for the things I didn't like...I think it best just to bullet-point them:- plot holes so large you could drive a truck through them- unlikeable characters- unbelievable characters- characters who act unlike any other human I've ever encountered, even imaginary ones- Bennie is described as a high-powered attorney, but I found her just as vapid and stupid as the people she surrounded herself with at work- I understand that she's a recurring character, but even her name bothered me- relationships and dialogue surrounding them that made me cringe- the idea that anyone, even someone who looked identical to the other person, could so completely assume someone's identity & fool (almost) everyone around her when she basically knew not a single thing about the person whose identity she was stealing- the flouting of banking laws and regulations, the flouting of TSA regulations ("you should let me fly because this FBI agent says I'm okay"), the flouting of basic laws of physics and human nature - want to be a partner in my law firm? Okay, you're a partner. Feel free to just change the name of the firm on the fly on the very day that I say you are a partner, before we file any paperwork to that effectTo wrap-up, I would not recommend this book. The only twist I found even remotely interesting involved the dog. I wish I could get back my money, and more importantly my time. Not sure why I flogged myself into finishing this one, probably should have just abandoned it less than halfway through. Though I guess that's another good point: it was definitely a quick read.

    This was a book club selection and it probably produced one of our best discussions on how poorly written and implausible the story was... swimming across the Delaware to Camden ... get real! Buried alive, not... clueless boyfriend. oh well..
  • (3/5)
    Very fast paced book. When one twin sister buries her other twin sister alive and leaves her for dead. The evil sister takes over the other's life...not ever thinking the other sister would come back. Each of them end up living the other's very different life. High suspense! The outcome could have come about so many different ways, but I was happy how everything came together and with the ending.
  • (4/5)
    Quick paced (most chapters are 2-3 pages), action thriller/mystery about identical twins - Bennie a powerhouse lawyer and Alice-a psychopath out to get her--and what ensues. Totally predicable plot that you can guess by page 10. That said, it read fast, was fun, and was like watching a well made Lifetime Movie of the week.

  • (2/5)
    This isn't the best of Lisa Scottoline's books, but isn't the worst, either. Mostly it feels a bit forced and slapdash, but the evil twin plot is always entertaining and she writes some funny characters and gives them some funny lines. Oddly, the best part of the book were the chapters where our heroine is buried alive and struggling to break free - truly claustrophobic and utterly believable descriptive writing that made me wonder if Ms. Scottoline had herself buried alive to see what it might feel like. Those chapters made my skin crawl. Other than that the book is mildly entertaining, but really just so-so.
  • (3/5)
    An interesting mystery where Bennie Rosato's evil twin sister tries to murder her, steal her identity, and make off with her money. After surviving Bennie has to face that fact that all of us have a bit of evil in us and has to decide if she will stoop to her sister's level to get revenge.A nail-biter of a mystery with loads of conflict and well narrated with views from different characters.

    Bennie Rosato has an identical twin, Alice Connelly, who resents her. In a visit, Alice complains how hard things are for her. Bennie has helped her in the past and tells her to stop complaining and get a job.Alice gives Bennie something to make her pass out, then burries her in a small container.Alice takes ove Bennie's identity, going to her job and passing herself as Bennie, even sleeping with Bennie's boy friend.Bennie is a fighter and didn't know her determination until put in this position. She scratches and claws her way until she can get out, determined to take revenge on Alice and make her pay for what she did.Neither of the characters are likable and the story was too far fetched.
  • (4/5)
    When Bennie Rosato is invited to her identical twins for a housewarming dinner, she never suspects the true motive behind the invitation. Alice Connelly, Bennie’s twin is in big trouble; her drug-dealing partners are trying to find and kill her. Alice has decided the only way out of her trouble is to kill her twin and assume her identity. She believes her plan as worked and she fools everyone. Sleeping with Bennie’s boyfriend, stealing all of Bennie’s money and moving it offshore, and fooling everyone who works for Bennie. The plan is moving along very smoothly, even when Bennie shows up, Alice convinces everyone that Bennie is Alice and that Alice is Bennie. Everything Bennie has worked for and loved is threatened. The only questions that remain, are how far can someone go to protect themselves and can a good person be driven to do evil things? I think I must be the last person on earth who’s never read a book by Lisa Scottoline. This is the 13th…yep…I said THIRTEENTH book in the Bennie Rosato series. Huh…who knew?? Not me, obviously. I’m a big fan of series, and a really big fan of mystery suspense series. I have no idea how I missed out on this author. I liked that the author treads the fine line of introducing a new reader to the series, without repeating everything that’s been written in the past. My interest is piqued and I plan on picking up book number one, Everywhere That Mary Went, and working my way through the series. My only real complaint with the story was the attention paid to seemingly minor characters. One of Bennie’s employees, Mary, is featured way too much for my liking. Perhaps Mary plays an integral part in the other books, but I didn’t see the point of including Mary, her parents, her sexy, witchy, widowed cousin, who may or may not be seducing Mary’s father, in the story. I thought it was an unnecessary side trip, and it didn’t add much to the storyline, except pages of text. I’ll reserve judgment on the whole Mary/Bennie/Mary’s family storyline until after I read a few more of the series. Complaints aside, Think Twice was a pretty good read, I suspect it moves the whole series along and I’m guessing it’s not the last Lisa Scottoline’s readers have seen of the Bennie and Alice conflict.

    This was a quick, fun read. Lisa Scottoline never dissapoints! If you have not read any of her books, you really should start with her first one, as the same characters appear in each novel and it is important to the development of the characters to read them chronologically.
  • (5/5)
    This was the first book I read by Lisa Scottoline and I thoroghly enjoyed it. It was the type of book that once you start it you don't want to put it down. I highly recommend it.

  • (4/5)
    I found this book very good, but with having read previous Lisa Scottoline books with the same characters, I did find the way Bennie handled the situation was a bit not like her. Other than that, it was well written, and most of the other characters were more in line from previous books.
  • (3/5)
    Bennie's crazy twin sister returns and steals Bennie's identity. As Alice is busy charming Bennie's acquaintances just long enough to steal her money and get out of the country, Bennie digs herself out of trouble and tries to convince the cops that Alice is up to no good. Fast-paced, fun, suspenseful adventure with some unbelievable (and unnecessary) plot elements.
  • (2/5)
    Ultimately a disappointment. Lisa Scottoline has worn out her welcome with this series. It seems she can find nothing to do with the mostly boring, been there, seen that, characters, and so she decides to lift the plot of A Stolen Life, a second rate Bette Davis movie. That movie though at least had Bette Davis. This novel has Bennie Rosato, perhaps the most lifeless character in the series, and an evil twin who wants to steal her identity. Are we really doing stolen twin identities in the 21st century? If there was such a thing as B movies anymore, this one would not even rate that grade. It's a C all around. The characters are vapid, the plot sloppy and uninteresting, and the author seems to be recycling old novels and changing a few details. Not recommended.
  • (5/5)
    "Think Twice,"is part of Lisa Scottoline's smash hit series about Bennie Rosato and her law practice. In this story Bennie's crazy twin sister tries and almost succeeds in killing her and stealing her identity. Alice(the sister) wants to get rid of Bennie, and steal her money and then hit the road never to be seen again. Alice almost gets away with it, but Bennie fights to convince the people in her life that she is the true Bennie Rosato and not her evil twin sister, and at first when the don't believe her she takes matters into her own hands. Luckily the people she works with finally realize somethings up, and help her reclaim her name and her money. The story ends with Alice basically in the wind, but I doubt this will be the last time Alice is heard from. A story full of adventure and suspense that keeps you wanting to read me.
  • (5/5)
    Great addition to a wonderful series. I thoroughly enjoyed the twists - who knew what and when? Who could tell and who couldn't? Would she or wouldn't she kill? It'll mean a whole lot more to those who have read her books in the past so start with the first one ' Everywhere that Mary went'.
