I finished! My first thought, like usual, is that it could have done some editing.
Kim Edwards is a beautiful writer. All of her senses are finely crafted. This is a very visual novel and there is an underlying metaphor of photography. Capturing the moment, but how each moment could be seen in a thousand different ways.
I found the final third of the novel disappointing. I don’t want to ruin it for anyone, but I was disappointed with how the threads of the story came together.
However, I will definitely read more of her work.
Oh and before I started I thought the Memory Keeper was Caroline Gill, but it turned out to be someone completely different …
I’ve just finished reading The Story of a Marriage by Andrew Sean Greer and I’ll try to get my thoughts down soon.
