The Memory Key:BOOK REVIEW (By: Liana Liu)


The Memory Key   
               
Lora Mint is determined not to forget.
Though her mother's been dead for five years, Lora struggles to remember every detail about her—most important, the specific events that occurred the night she sped off in her car, never to return.
But in a world ravaged by Vergets disease, a viral form of Alzheimer's, that isn't easy. Usually Lora is aided by her memory key, a standard-issue chip embedded in her brain that preserves memories just the way a human brain would. Then a minor accident damages Lora's key, and her memories go haywire. Suddenly Lora remembers a moment from the night of her mother's disappearance that indicates her death was no accident. Can she trust these formerly forgotten memories? Or is her ability to remember every painful part of her past driving her slowly mad—burying the truth forever?

Wow, I did not expect that. I think a small part of the problem was that I went into this book with high expectations. I feel that it was an interesting concept, the story played it badly though. For the majority I could not tell what the main problem of the story was. It felt like there was a bunch of small problems that kinda got solved. At the end of the book I also believed that Lora handled most things poorly. 
The relationships... weren't that good. I liked Tim, I liked how he didn't do everything for the relationship, but for what's right. Ralph, was stupid. If the author had not even included Ralph, everything would have been the same except for the relationships. 
Wendy was my favorite character of the whole story. I feel that Lora treated her poorly. You could tell that Wendy really cared about her, and Lora treated her like crap.
Over all, an okay book that needed a better storyline to go with a great conscipt.
