Also reviewed on my blog, the Vintage Bookworm. (http://www.vintagebookworm.blogspot.com)
Here is another really good dystopian debut novel. It is told in three point-of-views; Nora, Micah, and Winter. All have their own hopes to change something through a comic strip they decide to distribute. It's mostly Nora and Micah's idea because Micah draws the comic strip and Nora adds the story to it, based off their own stories with the TFC (To Forget Cares.) and the little white pill that they take when they go to the TFC to erase the memories of the traumatic events they may have happened to them. And some go to the TFC to take the pill just to simply forget.
They name their comic strip Memento, which is a strong word to them in this new futuristic world. To them, memento doesn't mean a small object kept as a reminder of a person or an event, it's to remember the past. To remember EVERYTHING that the government would want you to forget.
Don't let the compact size of the actual book, or the amount of pages fool you. This may be a short read, but a lot happens throughout its pages. A lot that you won't soon forget.
The writing was really good and the characters were believable. I really liked Micah. Micah and Nora worked well together. I liked each of Nora, Micah and Winter's stories.
Overall, this was simply a good read. It was a fun and fast read. I can't wait to see what happens next! The ending DEFINITELY has be anxiously awaiting the next installment.show more
