There is currently a minor sub-genre of stories about (paranoid) women losing their short(ish) term memory. With always a suspense supposed – building up to a crisis – and never are they really ‘mad’ – always someone trying make them seem so.
So, when I started this book, my suspicions were immediately aroused. I know that such memory losses can be caused by drugs – see other similar stories – was her husband drugging her? The oh so wonderful Matthew who can’t have children – I wonder why not?
Now we come to the phone calls – we get some kind of an explanation as to why she doesn’t contact the police – but in the UK, he first thing you do is contact BT who put a trace on your line and can change your number. This to me was a big plot hole.
- Due to my disbelief at the story-line right from the very beginning it was clear to me that I have read too many stories with the same plot!
- there are too many stories out there with the same plot;
- the writing and story-telling in this book are too derivative;
- I am too cynical and need to read with a more open mind;
she really was losing her memory and going mad ….. and something nasty happens…..
