Nora and Micah have a bigger role in this novel than book two. The characters face very difficult decisions as they go against TFC and the government. The upcoming elections don't ease their problems either. As the group struggles to hold onto who they are, they are facing a world that they might not be able to change.
Although I enjoyed Memento Nora and The Forgetting Curve, I felt this novel had something missing. There was a lack of urgency and underlying pace. Yet the ending was perfect for the series.
Though not my favorite of the series, I recommend The Meme Plague by Angie Smibert as well as the entire Memento Nora series.
This is riveting and well written fiction that I am looking forward to sharing with my 12 year old once he is old enough.
If you don't have the first two books in the series I included the publisher's synopsis to save you time but you will want to get them, so might as well before you read The Meme Plague.
Memento Nora (2011) In the future, it doesn't pay to remember. Nora, the popular girl and happy consumer, witnesses a horrific bombing on a shopping trip with her mother. In Nora's near-future world, terrorism is so commonplace that she can pop one little white pill to forget and go on like nothing ever happened. However, when Nora makes her first trip to a Therapeutic Forgetting Clinic, she learns what her mother, a frequent forgetter, has been frequently forgetting. Nora secretly spits out the pill and holds on to her memories. The memory of the bombing as well as her mother's secret and her budding awareness of the world outside her little clique make it increasingly difficult for Nora to cope. She turns to two new friends, each with their own reasons to remember, and together they share their experiences with their classmates through an underground comic. They soon learn, though, they can't get away with remembering.
The Forgetting Curve (2012) All that you remember may not be the truth. Aiden Nomura likes to open doors--especially using his skills as a hacker--to see what's hidden inside. He believes everything is part of a greater system: the universe.Read more ›
Dystopian stories are thing right now and likely because there are elements of relatable timeliness to this genre, it is growing even more popular. In this series, the chip is the controller. Not an uncommon device in sci fi stories to use a chip to control memories and feelings in order to then control the population. After all, happy people are contented people who keep the status quo.
So it is with this world, but in previous books, the stage was set for the chips to be circumvented and that's where this story picks up. In "Meme Plague", the 'powers that be' use brain hacking tactics which makes trusting one's own brain difficult. What if what you are thinking isn't really your thoughts or ideas?
It is a super quick read and it is a premise that I can get into and straightforwardly presented. I like the characters and the way the narrative flowed. Bonus points to the nice font used as it made reading easy on the eyes.
It was well written but I was left wanting more, the book would be better if the author focused more on the corporation and less on the specific characters or at least added a bit more information on the corporation involved. I found that part of the book more interesting than the characters themselves. Like another reviewer stated, the concept is interesting, started off great, but lost it's way a bit going back and forth. Also, hoped for a better ending- interesting plotline, not so interesting overall story and ending. Too many overlapping stories, not enough concentration on the main idea. Reminded me a lot of the movie Memento, as if the author took a lot of parts of the movie and thrown in some modern day technology, a touch of Matrix and a dystopian future. I notice some of it has a basis in reality rather than science fiction. Overall, pretty good, but could of been better.
