Customer Review

on October 10, 2011
I like to read and there is so much out there I find it hard to choose. I also have very little patience with books for this reason; if it doesn't grab me or charm me or somehow seduce me from the start, I'd rather move on to something that does.

What Alice Forget did charm me at first. I became very involved in the story, but about halfway through I had a feeling of trepidation. I thought: "There is no way for this to end that would feel satisfying." But I was still pretty absorbed by the story, and was hoping that the author had a surprise waiting for me.

Sadly, this was not to be. Without badly spoiling the ending, let me just say it took not one but both of the predictable paths. The ending was so neat, and trite, and terribly pat. The book could have been titled "Chicken Soup for the Amnesiac's Soul." I almost felt like I'd been cheated. Moriarity is a good writer, and I expected better. It was just a letdown.
