I don’t usually read such short books but I had some spare credit in my account and the pr..Show More »emise really piqued my interest as memory alteration is a growing topic in YA right now.
I was pleasantly surprised to find an interesting, well-built future world and fascinating characters were richer and more well developed than some I’d read in longer stories on a similar topic.
The plot was mostly straight forward but still managed to catch me off-guard with a clever little twist I didn’t pick! The ending was fairly tight and satisfying too.
My only complaint is that I wish it was longer or that we’d at least be seeing more of Nora (The ending didn’t obviously set up a sequel though reading, I now see there will in fact be a follow-up and I’m excited)!
It’s so rare with all the ho-hum stories I read that I wish for more but I couldn’t help but be disappointed it was over (unlike being disappointed it was dragging on like so with so many other books!)
Overall, I highly recommend Memento Nora. Despite its brief length it was a solid, enjoyable read.
