It's really hard to write a review for this book without a bunch of spoilers. That being said if the premise of the book sounds really cool and original to you then you should pick this up now and sta


rt reading. I picked this book up on the recommendation of a friend. Instantly I was hooked on the premise. It's a really simple idea so utterly well executed that really put this one over the top for me. One day an apocalyptic event occurs and people start to lose their shadows. Once you've lost your shadow you lose all your memories. Not just your apparent memories but even your inherent memories. So unlike someone with amnesia you can indeed forget to breath one day or drink water when you're thirsty. What follows is a well paced and compelling story that follows a set of a few characters and the events of living out their lives in this shadowless world. I honestly wish I could say more than that but I feel it would just give away too much of the story. I'll say this though the book takes a lot of fun twists in it's story telling path that while some are typical or even expected the way it's told and the world that surrounds it makes it worth it. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up you will not be disappointed. This is one of the more original and fun stories I have read in a very long time.

Welll... it was different, but it also felt long and also unsatisfying to me in the way it ended. I come away feeling let down and too many things unresolved. not one of my faves.

Thank you. I have read many of these, but have so many more to seek out. I'd never heard of some of these. I may start with them first.

I would love to write a review, but every time I start a book and get half way through it, you lock it out so I can't finish reading.
