Book Description

Aug. 8 2005
Ann and Diane are twins, both beautiful. As children they had often played at switching identities to confuse the grownups. When Diane is killed in a car crash on the way back from the airport, Ann cannot resist the temptation of her sister's exciting life. She decides to play Diane-this time for good.

But she is not prepared for the ultimate, chilling consequences of her "Diane Game," that by pretending to be her sister, she actually becomes Diane.

3.0 out of 5 stars Once the Decision Had Been Make, Ann Had to Play the Diane Game; Her Life Depended on It! Jan. 29 2011
By John C. Legg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I first read the Diane Game (1973) by Stanley Cohen well over twenty years ago. With the passage of time I forgot what the book was about other than it concerned twin sisters and that it was excellent. At the time, I liked the book so much that I was curious if anyone else liked it; I remember my disappointment when I read a review about the book and the reviewer called it lady prose (boring, simplistic prose written typically by females from a time long gone by.)

I don't want to give away too much of the plot, but from the "Day Books" paperback front cover is the following quote: "Ann and Diane, though twins, couldn't have been more different when it came to sex." The book deals with boredom; a conscious, desperate move to change one's life brought about by the sudden, unexpected loss of a love one; industrial spying in the computer industry in the early 1970's; a pink Englishman; the Mafia; a genius inventor/businessman; ivory; and the promised delivery of an elephant. Not quite as good as I remembered, but still a good read!
4.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly prescient Oct. 7 2012
By Diane Farr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The plot uses one of my favorite improbable-but-irresistible devices, a twin masquerading as the other twin. In this case, the twin unwittingly becomes involved in industrial espionage in Silicon Valley. But the book came out in 1973, which means it was written in 1972 or even earlier! Silicon Valley hadn't even become Silicon Valley yet. So extra points for being eerily ahead of its time. Also great fun.
