Unsuccessfully trying to repress the memory of a horrible event in her past, Gale realizes that her current life has become unbearable and agrees to take a chance on an untested treatment that has just become available, even though there are profound and unknown risks.
Treatment for Gale is directed at erasing her unwanted memory, but unforeseen complications occur, including confabulation, which leads to abrupt changes and new challenges.
Fortunately for Gale, she has friends who are there to help her: Jeff, a fellow graduate student, who is in love with her and will do absolutely anything for her, Peters, a relentless and ruthless detective who refuses to abandon her case, and Sibyl, her funny and sarcastic roommate, who also loves Gale in her own way.
I read this book when it was first released, and I just finished the audio book. It was even better the second time around, and the narration was very well done. The story is very original, and I think the scientific concepts woven throughout it are fascinating. There are many unexpected twists and turns, and the ending? I think you'll be surprised.
This story had me completely enthralled from the very beginning. The narrator was terrific with a great voice. Can’t wait to hear more books from this writer and narrator.
