This review is from: Before I Go To Sleep (Paperback)
I can only add my voice to those other 1 and 2 star reviews. The idea is very interesting, and would have made a great novel. This isn't it ! There are just too many things that aren't logical. How can a person who does not remember the last 20 years know how to handle a cell phone ?
As soon as I read that first cell phone conversation the author lost all credibility for me.
I did continue reading - but it was not satisfying. I kept wanting to yell - 'no no, she can't do that'. Good idea, poor execution.

"And there's a mobile phone-"
"A what?" I say.
"A phone", he says. "It's cordless. You can use it anywhere. Outside the house, anywhere. It'll be in your handbag. Make sure you take it with you if you go out."
She would be well aware of what a phone is and what it does from before she lost her memory - and phones are pretty intuitive these days. I think the author did a reasonable job of putting the mobile phone into the realms of plausibility.

Hi Coastin Bear,
You're correct - but it wasn't enough for me. I remember when I got my first cell phone - back in the 90's - it took some getting used to. Today's cell phone may be intuitive, but for someone who has never seen or handled one , still a bit confusing. But you are right - probably not so major. Just that I didn't buy the whole concept so the cell phone loomed large for me.
