    1 thought on “Twins: Dead Ringers”

    1. You know, sometimes you just really want to read a novel about incredibly handsome codependent twin gynecologists who sleep with their patients and each other's lovers and each other, and descend into the depths of barbiturate addiction, and shit in chairs, and eventually commit murder-suicide. And when you want to read that novel, Twins is there for you.

    2. I was only made aware of this novel after reading a book about David Cronenberg’s films. A book that inspired “Dead Ringers” you say? Better yet, real life twin drug-addicted gynecologists that inspired said book? I knew I had to read this. Of course I went in figuring it would probably be sensationalist entertainment and little more. Is the prose great? Not really. Is it weirdly engrossing and easy to read? Yes. Despite a few problems (one being the homophobic attitudes and slurs…but th [...]

    3. Checked this one out because it was the iinspiration for the movie "Dead Ringers". This book is so trashy. Delightfully so at times, but yeah. (I'd call this a 2.75 star book. I read the whole thing on the toilet over several months. It doesn't deserve any better bookshelf than teetering on top of the towel rack.)

    4. [These notes were made in 1990:]. Splashed all over the cover of this paperback is the title (Dead Ringers) of the Cronenberg film made from the novel -- a film I did not see, though I like Jeremy Irons. I was no further than a few pages into it, though, when I realized that I had read this book, or at least skimmed enthralled and horrified through it, in the late seventies. It is essentially the story of the enslavement of one twin -- I guess you could call him the "good" twin, Michael -- by hi [...]

    5. The idea of this book is much cooler than the book itself. The characters were whining all the time and it seemed like it dragged on forever. I guess I am immune to the shock value of incestual twins. I've read to much shock/horror fiction when I was a teenager. Don't get me wrong, it's an alright bookbut I don't exactly understand why someone would think it was great enough to make into a film.

    6. Terrible, and terribly Seventies, novel of murder, sexual excess and abandonment issues revolving around a set of twin doctors. Based -- very, very loosely -- on the lives of Cyril and Stewart Marcus, who you also saw immortalized by David Cronenberg and Jeremy Irons in DEAD RINGERS.

    7. Disapointing. I was a huge fan of the movie so I thought I would be of the book as well, but, alas, that was not the case. It sets up a good premise but does not go far enough, focusing on drug addiction and little more.

    8. I read this after seeing the movie, because I do that. Sometimes I read the book instead of seeing the movie. Anyway, it's true crime, and not quite as disturbing as David Cronenberg's film.

    9. The book on which "Dead Ringers" is loosely based. Cronenberg didn't need to credit this; it has as little relationship to his ingenious film as Yanni to Mozart.
