Thoughts: Other than what I think was an impossible way to go through labour, I really enjoyed the book and thought that the book flowed really well. While I haven’t had amnesia, I have heard of when amnesia has completely changed a person’s personality and it probably also can rob a person of their memories to the point where they have to ask people about things about their likes and dislikes. It was a nice quick read when in the middle of some very dense books.
