This review is from: Forget You (Paperback)After reading 'Going too far' by the same author I was incredibly disappointed by 'Forget you' I found that the plot was trivial and boreing and the characters shallow and the story was predicable.
The story in a nutshell is: Zoey has a car accident but she remembers nothing about the night itself. The only person who seems to have any idea about this is mysterious Doug who seemed to hate Zoey before but now doesn't? Wasn't really sure what was going on there? Zoey needs to find out what happened to her that night while pretending she hasn't forgotten.
I found Zoey incredibly infuriating and at most points in the book I really wanted to slap her. She had some odd ideas about her 'boyfriend' Brandon and her 'best friends' Lila and Keke, what was going on there?They were the typical stereotypical high school twins, they were also very bad best friends, in fact it was only about halfway through the book that i realised they were fiends at all.
I found the whole plot about trying to find out what happened at the party was really predictable and odd, I guessed what had happened straight away while it took Zoey the whole book to work it out.
The wierdest thing about the book for me was when Doug is sitting there with Zoey and suddenly says 'I can see into your future....' If anyone understands what that is about please enlighten me. As this is only mentioned in the book once i couldn't understand whether it was meant to actually have any relevance to the story or if the author just decided to drop this randomly into the story. If so, i dont know why as as i said it was not relevant at all.
I would recommend 'Going too far' instead of this book as I found it a much better read, however I would recommend that if you did want to read 'Forget you' you borrowed it from the libary or someone else rather that buy it.
