Thanks For the Memories by Cecelia Ahern

Thanks for the Memories by Ahern Ahern: Book Cover

Back of the book: How can you know someone you’ve never met? That’s the question driving Joyce Conway these days. As she recovers from an accident, she’s suddenly plagued by an overwhelming sense of deja vu that makes her feel as if her life is not her own. She dreams night after night of a little girl she’s sure she doesn’t know, remembers cobble-stoned Parisian streets she’s never visited. She’s convinced she’s going crazy. . . until a series of coincidences takes her on a journey to find the one person who may hold the answer she needs. Thanks for the Memories is a heartwarming story of hope, love, and second chances – and Cecelia Ahern’s most magical novel yet.

I’m probably not Ms. Ahern’s target reader. While I enjoyed the film version of P.S. I Love You, I haven’t read any of her books. When this book was made available as an arc I thought I’d give it a try. I found it almost “sit-com”ish in it’s pace (as if the laughs were timed). That was distracting to me – but it may not be to her fans. I thought the overall concept was far-fetched but, again maybe not to her usual audience. There were some amusing spots and it was a very quick read. So I’ll just say that if you’ve enjoyed Cecelia Ahern’s other books, there’s a very good chance you’ll like Thanks For the Memories.

Thanks to HarperCollins for the ARC.
