the description of this book is extreamly missleading, this book is chick-fiction, half the book is about a woman dealing with the awkardness of unshared intimacy between her and her husband and her shock at being older then she rembers. the mystery aspect is really weak and choppy. the story has no flow and no build up. if your into that buy it.

This book sounded interesting and I stayed to the end. There just isn't enough in the premise to sustain suspense. Certainly not original as a notable film handled the whole amnesia idea far better. The ending felt rushed and contrived. Disappointing.

Why read the same thing over and over again only to get to a predictable ending?? Not good. I was very dissapointed after all the good reviews.

I have never been so disappointed in a book. Drawn in by the accolades on the cover, and a huge fan of neurologically damaged characters I thought I'd enjoy the subject matter. How wrong I was. Literally three quarters of the book was dedicated to the description and constant, endless reinforcement of the main character's plight, full of holes as she writes (as only a writer can) what we are supposed to believe is the ramblings of a confused amnesiac. When you're ready to throw the book across the room there's a teaser of an ending and the hope that maybe, just maybe it's not going to end as predictably as you have convinced yourself it would do... And lo and behold, it does. In a hurry. With all the excitement of a wet Wednesday. Sorry, but I won't be making a dash for novel number two...

This book stinks. A reasonably good story line is buried under tons of sloppy research and stilted writing. The female voice is unconvincing. The author has done too little research on amnesia which he then attempts to mitigate by forcing the psychiatrist to tell us that this case is really unusual. The only unusual thing about the story is that this book is on a bestseller list.

The writing is pedestrian and consists almost entirely of dialogue. There is so little description of houses or people that you can't even imagine them. You develop no interest in the main character and so don't really care if she lives or dies. It's a drab little mystery novel that was published because they thought they could sell it. And they did.
But this is a thriller at the absolute lowest most inept level. God, it was boring.

Do not believe the rave reviews on the book cover, or you'll be sorely disappointed. Oh, it's a "page-turner" alright, but you're turning them with speed hoping that the story will improve. But it doesn't. It goes along in a simplistic, uneven way up until the last 20 pages, when it becomes a haphazard flurry of explanation spelling out the rhyme and reasons. And by then you don't care, because the characters are like cardboard cut-outs, so there's no emotional investment right up to the end. Believe me, this is no 'thriller'.

This book is 50 First Dates with an evil twist, right down the journal, the husband and the child she doesn't recognize. Deja vu.

I liked the premise of the book, and kept hoping it would get better. I held out and finished it but was sorely disappointed that I wasted my time. The plot was predictable, the narrative was plodding and the protagonist was pathetically helpless and didn't spark an ounce of sympathy from me. Would not recommend.

I just read all the unfavourable reviews, the reviews that gave this book a low score. All I have to say is that I AGREE with those poor scores and then some~!! Very boring book, repetitive and you could almost write the ending by yourself.
I wouldn't recommend this book. Very disappointing.
