Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Jordan Landau has a crap job, a shrewish boss and a dud boyfriend, but when she gets hit by a car and takes a nasty knock to her noggin, things start to look up in Crane's bubbly second novel (after Stupid and Contagious). Jordan, she of the nutty family and unsatisfying junior copywriting job, fakes amnesia and parlays her condition into a better position at the ad agency where she works, a better boyfriend (longtime beau Dirk, who is one-note awful, also tries to take full carnal advantage of Jordan's amnesia, but fails) and an all-around better lifestyle. The setup generates a few chuckles, but no real surprises. Readers in the mood for a light and goofy romantic comedy will find a thin one between these covers. (Aug.)

Customer Reviews

I look forward to reading a third book from Caprice Crane.
Little D
Team the great characters with the outrageously inspired storyline and Ms. Cranes unique wittiness and superb storytelling skill and you have an instant hit!
Book Biddy
Sometimes the characters in these book can drive me a bit nuts with their insipidness or stupidity, but I didn't feel like that with these characters.

I had promised myself a book as a reward for a stressful week and spent a lunch time meandering around the UPenn bookstore... 'Forget About It' caught my eye (great marketing - it's bright green & pops out at you) - I picked it up, merely read that it was by the author of 'Stupid and Contagious' and jetted to the register without even reading the blurb on the back.

firstly - I hate the term 'chick lit'... because there are some books that fall into that genre that are written by incredibly smart & funny & articulate women, and I feel like 'chick lit' implies something else.

but never mind - whatever the genre, I loved Caprice's first book... and I loved this one, which though I struggled to make it last - I was sucked into and read in three days. For me - that's the sign of a good book. If I'm still trying to read it after a week - it's not because it's long, it's because I'm bored!

We all know this heroine, in some form. My roommate is a Jordan - smart and caring, and more often than I'd like to witness - a pushover. I have informed her that she is reading the book next and she has conceded. (see?) In this case - it'll be a good thing.

Yay, Caprice, you rock!! I want another one :) and I want to meet Todd...

The first thing I want to say is that Forget About It is an inspired plot. Yes it's similar to the Kinsella novel Remember Me? along with the Cecelia-Ahern-part-created TV show Samantha Who? but it's different because Jordan chooses amnesia. It's not forced upon her, she chooses to do it in a bid to change her life. Personally I think it's a brilliant idea for a novel and I thought Crane executed it well for the most part. It wasn't entirely what I expected, the faux-amnesia wasn't what I expected it to be, and there's an even bigger plot-changer about 100-120 pages before the end of the novel. It does become a bit of a soap opera during those last pages, with some OMG moments and moments where I wanted to strangle Jordan merely because she wasn't aware of the real truth about all of these people around her.

I must say, the book wasn't as funny as I expected it to be either. Yes, I did laugh out loud a few times but I was expecting a laugh a minute. I follow Caprice on Twitter and she's hilarious, so I kind of expected Forget About It to follow that. I also found some of the relationships during the novel to be lacking. The relationship between Jordan and Todd was very real to me, and Crane set it up wonderfully, with a brilliant confession-type scene early-ish on in the novel but that never panned out. At all. It was almost as if we were all set up to believe it was going to happen and I was mightily disappointed we didn't get any sort of closure on the issue. Don't get me wrong, I love it when an author throws us a curveball and gives us an unexpected ending, but when I get my hopes up for a couple and it doesn't pan out, it sucks. I liked Travis as much as the next guy but I was invested in Jordan and Todd as a couple.

Don't get me wrong by the 3 stars, I enjoyed this book but this was the last book read of Caprice and I do absolutely love her writing style but out of the 3, this was my least favorite.

Jordan really does need a chance to "do-over" and fakes amnesia to get that chance. What made me not "love" the book was the fact that she did really get amnesia at a point where I wished she would finally get the guy and move on. The booked lingered at that point and really spent too much time on the do-over of the do-over. She also spends WAY WAY WAY too much time focused on Dirk and I couldn't really understand the attraction of Dirk to Jordan's crazy mom and selfish half sister. The lessons that Jordan learned really out-weighed my irritation w/Dirk and the real amnesia and it finished as funny and perfect as Jordan deserved.

Few books have made me laugh out loud, and Caprice Crane has written two of them. She writes with such a great voice, at such a fine pace, that while this book stole an entire Saturday from me, I might read it again tomorrow. I appreciate the intelligent story, the clever prose and the character development is fantastic. You'll hate the mother and sister, totally lust after Travis and wish you had friends like Todd and Cat. If you don't laugh out loud at the smelly foot incident, you're not paying attention. I hope she's writing book 3 as I type....!

You can read the summary to see what the storyline is.

I mostly liked the tone, the pace, the New York setting, although I thought the set-up dragged too long. Jordan's got a crappy life because she doesn't stand up for herself, we get it.

I liked Jordan's wit and creativity, and I loved Travis and his lighthouse. What I didn't "get," despite the neglected/emotionally abused childhood, is why a woman with so much going for her would be quite so passive. The bad guys were a little too bad; they needed some redeeming qualities that would have helped explain her ambivalence at blowing them off. And the idea that somebody would be able to fake amnesia well enough to fool not only laypeople but doctors... pretty unbelievable. That she would then get REAL amnesia, AND that she would recover her memory JUST as she was walking down the aisle, about to marry the wrong guy... too many impossible things before breakfast, for me. I *would* read another book by this author, however.
