I have finished half of the novel. A woman, namely Christine, has suffered amnesia for over 20 years. Her memory can only retain 24 hours. Everytime she goes to sleep, her daytime experience evaporates. She cannot remember her husband, her dead son and her doctor. When she wakes up in the morning, she has to learn about her life through the journal she writes everyday.
I am overwhelmed by the concept of this novel. The feeling of lossing memory is so real that actually frightens me. A person without memory has nothing to anchor. Everyone seems to be strangers so you can trust no one. That puts you into a solitude, helpless, vulnerable and sometimes hysterical status.
Something has happened to rob the life of Christine. I will read on to find out.
