Sharon @ Fictionally Inclined - Thanks!

Oh, excellent rec. We discussed a condition similar to that in my Child Development class last semester – without the flash forwards, of course. That’s certainly an interesting premise. And I’m a sucker for beautiful writing! That is probably the fastest way to get me to read something is to tell me that, haha.

Magan - I’ve got it! No worries! Thanks so much for the comments, Sharon! If you enjoy books about memory, you should also consider checking out Forgotten by Cat Patrick. It was one of my ABSOLUTE favorite books from last year. So beautifully written. I have a friend reading it right now and she texts me to let me know where she is and gives me status reports. I think you’d love it, too!

Weird coincidence about Dink. Maybe if you read Unforgettable, you can think of him as something other than Dink so as not to defame your Grandmother? 😉

Sharon @ Fictionally Inclined - Um. That was odd. Sorry about the duplicate comment! It told me it didn’t post and to retry, so I did. And now not only did I double-comment, but the second one was…well, that. I can’t figure out a way to delete it. Bah, technology savviness, why must you elude me when I need you?

Sharon @ Fictionally Inclined - Oh, excellent. I’ve always been fascinated by perfect photographic/eidetic memories. I just find the entire idea so intriguing. It’s one of the reasons I love the show Suits so much.

As for me, I think I would rather remember fragments than absolutely everything. There would be times when a photographic memory would come in handy, of course, but overall, I don’t think it would be worth it. It would drive me crazy. I still enjoy reading about it, though, and I will definitely be adding this to my TBR list!

Random extra bit of information: “Dink” was my grandmother’s nick-name, and I’ve never seen it anywhere else. It’s certainly odd to find it in a fictional middle-aged male criminal.
