Remind Me Again What Happened

Remind Me Again What Happened by Joanna Luloff

My Thoughts

4 ‘It’s Complicated’ Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟

This was a complex character driven book… Full of unlikable characters… leaving me with more questions than answers…. it is a straightforward unraveling of the personality and friendship of these three complicated people…. no twists, no turns, just a real story about real relationships…

Claire has developed encephalitis from a mosquito bite which ultimately wipes out her memory from age 17 to34… told from the point of views of Claire, her BFF Rachel, and her husband Charlie… we get a look into this trios complicated relationship with one another, from all sides… These three were the best of friends, living together, practically family, until….

The very best part of this book was the characters, even though they were unlikable they were very well-developed… I also really appreciated that there was no extra fat… no unnecessary storylines, no unnecessary characters, it was all pretty above board…. my only complaint is the ending, it was just a little lackluster, probably because I wanted that twist, LOL 😝 so that is clearly a me problem! And I would really like to see what happens to these characters in the future, follow up???

Recommend to fans of the character driven book, with some pretty complicated characters….

*** many thanks to Algonquin Books for my copy of this book ***

Synopsis

“There is a smudge where my memory is supposed to be.” 

Claire wakes in a hospital room in the Florida Keys. She has no idea how she got there or why. The loss of so many memories is paralyzing. Some things she can piece together by looking at old photos saved by her husband, Charlie, and her best friend, Rachel, and by combing through boxes of letters and casual jottings. But she senses a mystery at the center of all these fragments of her past, a feeling that something is not complete. Is Charlie still her husband? Is Rachel still her friend?

Told from alternating points of view that pull the reader into the minds of the three characters, the story unfolds as the smudge that covers Claire’s memory is gradually, steadily wiped away, until finally she can understand the why and the how of her life. And then maybe she and Charlie and Rachel can move forward, but with their lives forever changed.

Have a wonderful day! Berit☀️✨
