Book Review: No Two Persons by Erica Bauermeister


The first time I read a book by Erica Bauermeister I had intended to skim the 1st chapter only and ended up powering through it in 5 hours (and I am a slow reader!). Once again, I was sucked into her book and emerged hours later, completely amazed at the journey I’d just taken.

No Two Persons is such a unique and captivating story about the number of people through who’s lives a book passes. Some people are more impacted than others, some are readers, writers, narrators, others never read the book but are changed in some way by it’s presence in their lives anyway.

Bauermeister is a master of telling a story through the senses, pulling readers deep into the storyline so that they experience it on nearly the same level the characters must. She’s done it again with No Two Persons.

Each chapter offers a different character, life, perspective, and literary experience. And the thread that weaves through each of them is a novel entitled “Theo”, which I’m so curious about, but don’t feel that anything is missing in really not knowing what’s in that book.

No Two Persons is a well-paced, engulfing, emotional reading experience that I highly recommend.

No Two Persons comes out May 2. 2023.
