Amazing adventures - a real page turner!,
This review is from: The Amnesia Clinic (Paperback)
The Amnesia Clinic
Ecuador in the 1990s. Fabian and Anti (Anthony) are great friends. Fabian lives with an exotic uncle, Suarez, and suffers from the dark cloud of a dead father and missing mother - almost certainly dead, but he is not prepared to accept her death. Anti lives with his much less exotic expat family who expect him to turn up to events at the British Embassy whenever required, and who are now planning to send him to boarding school in England.
Fabian fantasises about the whereabouts of his missing mother, and his fantasies get wilder. The boys skip school, with the necessary forged excuse notes, to go and find her, Fabian believing that this might actually be possible, Anti going along for the adventure. And indeed it is an adventure, with crazy characters met en route, and different modes of transport.
This is definitely a page turner - all the time you want to know what will happen next - each time they put themselves into danger you wonder how they will get out, or even whether they will get out.
