Imagine waking up each day remembering nothing about the day before, your past, your whole life!
I did not enjoy this book as much as I had hoped. The story hook was compelling and I was drawn in quite quickly because of it, but just a quarter of the way in, things began unravelling for me.
Firstly, not having had much experience with amnesiacs, it was hard to understand some of the issues the character was facing. I know that we are reading the story through the narrator’s own confused perspective, but the downside to this is that the reader begins to raise more questions than the narrator can effectively answer.
I also found some of the events implausible, the ending seemed to hurriedly tie up the story threads without making much sense. I felt that the ‘circumstances’ the narrator found herself in all seemed a tad far-fetched, and so I was detracted from any enjoyment I could have felt whilst reading it.
Surely, many readers will find this gripping as it does have some very creepy aspects, but for me it was slow-going at points, jerky, and the climax left me feeling a bit disappointed.
