Review: The Last Thing She Remembers by J. S. Monroe


Release date: May 28, 2019

Publisher: Park Row

Genre: Mystery/Thriller


Who can you trust if you don’t know who you are? She arrives at the train station only to realize her bag had been stolen–her passport, credit cards, laptop, house key now all gone. And even more disturbing, when she goes to report the incident, she can’t recall her own name. All she has on her is a train ticket home.Suffering from stress-induced amnesia, the woman without a name is a source of mystery when she appears at the sleepy Wiltshire village where she thought she lived. She quickly becomes a source of conspiracy and fear among the townspeople. Why does one think he recognizes her from years earlier? And why do the local police take such a strong interest in her arrival?From the critically acclaimed author of Find Me comes a shocking new tale of dark pasts and deception, leaving us breathlessly analyzing the role memory plays in defining who we are–and who others think we might be. 


I’ve been in a weird reading mood lately y’all, I’m either absolutely raving about a book and pushing everyone to read it or I hate it and am pissy. Just wanted to put that out there before I get started on my thoughts about this one because unfortunately this one fell on the the I didn’t like it all side of things 🤷‍♀️

I’m not going to sit here and completely bash this one but I do wanna quickly share why it didn’t work for me. I wasn’t invested in the characters and I think it’s partly because there were way too many of them and none were fully fleshed out. They were very one dimensional to me and I just didn’t really care what happened to them in the end. I also felt like it was longer than it needed to be and I really had to push myself to finish, and I’m talking once I got to like eighty percent. That’s never a good sign for me, usually when I’m reading a thriller the ending is where I’m hooked and don’t want to put it down and I didn’t feel like that here at all. The plot itself was fine, at least most of it but I did find certain aspects to be far fetched and just highly unbelievable. Overall I just didn’t care for this one, the characters, the writing, the story, I was very apathetic about the whole thing and I can’t say I recommend it.

Overall rating: 2/5

Thanks to the publisher for my review copy.
