This is more a short story than a full blown novel. Having seen the film, it's one of those rare occurrences where the film fills out the story from the book, as the book has a bare bones story.
I loved the opening scene on the first page, such a great way to open the book, as a man having come round from a coma goes seeking his life. Whilst he has a clear recollection of people and places, they don't seem to recognise him. What's going on?
There's a lot about him being a botanist and the life of plants (a strange addition for a thriller!) but in many ways that helps to add to the confusion of the characters.
Intriguing idea. Short story. Not as detailed as the film!!
