reader ¸ The Memory Game º Nicci French

S Jane hopes to find out what really took place when she was a child and what happened to NatalieBut in learning the truth about hers and Natalie's past is Jane putting her own future at terrible risk? Well this was strange It takes a recently divorced woman through therapy as she tries to recall some forgottensupressed memory about the death of her best friend after the body is found on the property the friend grew up on Then it raises lots of uestions about the notion of recovered memory It's a strange read At times I simply couldn't put it down And it was thought provoking in terms of what memory really is But there were other times when I found it so confusing that I was annoyed In particular French wants to establish that there is a large extended family and refers to everyone by their simple often monosyllabic names And she names everyone ex wives children of ex wives children's girlfiends etc when these people don't even have speaking parts I found myself often lost Still the interesting parts were spell binding a good read if the topic sounds intriguing to you

mobi The Memory Game

The Memory GameThe Memory Game is a haunting psychological thriller from the Top Ten bestselling author Nicci French You remember an idyllic childhood But your memory is deceitful And possibly deadlyWhen a skeleton i I was not very enamoured with this book it took way too long to get going and the whole twist felt pretty adeuate and absurd when we got there plus I had already figured it out I just couldn't take to the main character a sign of how unispired I was that I finished this book 10 minutes ago and have already forgotten her name and was uickly fed up of her 'I need a cigarette' 'I'm having a cigarette' 'I am smoking my last cigarette' and so on ALL the way through I also found the other characters pretty annoying from bossy Kim to ridiculous Alan ? personality less Martha and the wet lettuce that was Claude Not counting all the other hundreds of people that kept popping up but who were so unimportant to the story that I could not keep track of who was a Martello who was a spouse of who was no relation at all who happened to just be passing by there are way too many extras that added nothing to the story Additionally I am not sure how this can be billed as a 'thriller' as the lack of pace and intrigue made it like reading a memoir for 90% of the bookHaivng read reviews of other books by the author it seems that my first foray into their work is the weakest one so I may try others at a later date but this has not inspired me to continue for now High hopes have been signifcantly dashed for now
