Review

The futuristic fantasy Smibert began with Memento Nora (rev. 7/11) continues in this sequel. All citizens of Hamilton, USA, are required to have an ID chip implanted, one to which the corporation Therapeutic Forgetting Clinic, or TFC, will have full access. Aiden, Winter, and Velvet realize that TFC will wipe out true memories and implant false ones—all part of a plot for the suppression of independent thought and industry. The three main characters combine their varied skills in technology old, new, and avant-garde to thwart the corporation’s plot and protect their families. Written in alternating voices, Smibert’s novel is quick and engaging, colorful with its enjoyment of sculpture and mechanics, vintage dress, indie music, and hacker skills. In keeping with its dystopic theme, this second volume offers no comfortable resolution. Deirdre F. Baker, The Horn Book Sept. 2012

More About the Author

Born in Blacksburg, a once sleepy college town in the mountains of Southwest Virginia, I grew up thinking I wanted to be a veterinarian. Organic chemistry had other ideas. But I always had stories in my head. Eventually, after a few degrees and few cool jobs--including a 10-year stint at NASA's Kennedy Space Center--I wrote some of those stories down.

I'm the author of several young adult books, including MEMENTO NORA, THE FORGETTING CURVE, and THE MEME PLAGUE. I've also published many short stories, for both adults and teens.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My review is necessarily somewhat incomplete since I've not read the first book in the series and don't know what the third book will be like. And both of these are important since "The Forgetting Curve" is far from a stand-alone effort. It's somewhat like Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back in that it appears to assume certain background knowledge and does not end with anything resembling closure.

The book is set in a dystopian future in which memories can be removed. There are suggestions that removing memories might be a benefit to people who need to suppress certain horrific memories. But the overwhelming thrust of the book is that the ability to remove memories is a valuable weapon for a Big Brother-like government, especially one wed tightly to powerful corporations.

Against this backdrop, Aiden, a teenager, heads home from his boarding school in Switzerland when a bombing apparently threatens the safety of the city. His cousin, Winter, meanwhile, has just come home herself--without her memories. When Aiden shows her an underground comic she sent him, she has no memory. Meanwhile, other misfits are having their own problems with the new rule that everyone must have a security chip implanted (making identification and tracking far easier), and it seems that some people are having the chips implanted without being aware of it.

Without having read the first book in this series, I had some difficulty following the various characters, though I can't say that I ever lost the thread. I just had the sense that there were reference that I was missing.

Also reviewed on my blog, The Vintage Bookworm. [...]

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.

I read and reviewed Memento Nora earlier this year. The Forgetting Curve is a satisfying continuation of that story. In fact, I think I even liked this one better than the previous, due to the narrators, and the sheer creepiness of seeing the brain wipes in action.

Going into this one, I was a bit concerned, because I knew that this one had two new narrators replacing Micah and Nora. Anytime there's a POV change, I can't help but worry it will be for the worse. Thankfully, though, I loved the new additions: Aiden, Winter's cousin, and Velvet, Micah and Winter's friend. Both of them are so much more lively and funny than the characters they replaced.

Aiden is so awesome, sort of the replacement Nora, in that both are wealthy and, on the surface at least, fit into society perfectly. I loved reading Aiden's POV, especially when he talked about hacking and code. Maybe I've been infected by my day job, but I just thought that was all so cool. I also enjoyed the fact that he is not what he at first seems. He may look like a rule-following prep, but he's actually constantly messing with things.

Velvet is so sassy, and you know how I adore sassy narrators. Her Book of Velvet, aka the rules by which she lives life, is totally fantastic. I mean, I have to love a girl who has a rule that says not to run, ever, for any reason. (I hate running.) Another rule I wanted to fistbump her for was: "A girl can't wait for Prince Charming to rescue her ass or save the universe" (188).

Winter's POV didn't too much for me. For the most part, I thought she was kind of boring in this one, and I was very grateful her sections were kept to a minimum. The constant reference to the hummingbirds were irritating.
