After finishing Memento Nora last year, I was extremely excited for this sequel to come out. I really thought the story line was intriguing and unique and I was going crazy waiting for it. Over the months while waiting for it, I completely forgot that the character's points-of-view were different than it's predecessor. In The Forgetting Curve, you follow Aiden, Winter, and Velvet. I really missed hearing about Norah and Micah, but following Aiden, Winter, and Velvet was still enjoyable.
A lot has changed since the first book in their world. There are new chips coming out that is mandatory and they work with the new mobiles that Aiden's father's company is coming out with, to help work a lot like the TFC pills do; help people forget something that may have happened to them.
But a lot of people are finding out they have the new chip without ever remembering getting it, and forgetting a lot of memories they wouldn't have wanted to forget. Things that would have made them very suspicious of the government.
The underground movements are growing and the government is really cracking down after finding out about the Memento comics Micah, Norah and Winter were creating. I really missed hearing about the new issues of Memento, but it was still mentioned once in a while throughout the story.
Also, there is a new underground radio station that lasts only a few minutes and the talker is someone who calls herself Meme girl, which you figure out who she is later in the story.
Overall, it wasn't as great as the first book, but still enjoyable. It was a fast read, not very long. Only a little over 200 pages, so I read it in one day on my Kindle. I'd recommend this series if you want to read a fast, enjoyable dystopian series.
