    If Cameron Vaux can’t find it, he will lose everything. “You will lose your mind. When it starts happening.... You must find the Book of Days.” When Cameron’s dying father delivers this message, he brushes it off. Lose his memory? He’s only 25. Find a book that doesn’t even exist? Foolishness. Nothing more than the product of his father’s dementia. But now, eight years after his father’s death, it’s happening. Chunks of Cameron’s life are just — gone.

    Kathleen says: "Positive and interesting -Not too heavy handed"
    "UGGGH. As I suspected, a book with a message..."
    Overall

    I thought this might be a preachy God is real kind of book. And to me, it was. If I had been reading it I would have put it down. Because it was on my Ipod on my Bose speakers, I listened to it while I did household tasks. The same underlying message repeated over and over. Spoiler alert: main character does not believe in God but those he cherishes in life do. A loosely veiled lecture with what could have been an interesting premise if the author had developed the plot instead of the continued doubting Thomas/I need proof/oh wait there is a God story. If you were expecting any kind of variation on the many novels following the old Dan Brown mystery/search/uncover a secret hidden for centruries--this is NOT close. Some folks who like religious fiction, reiterating the "God is real" theme in a weak story may like this. It wasn't what I hoped for and the writing/dialogue was not mature or rich.
