    7. What do you get when you put five people with different memory disorders in one house You get The Memory Artists.Jeffrey Moore s second novel plays strictly upon the idea of remembering and forgetting He introduces the reader to a motley cast of characters, all of whom suffer from some sort of memory related issue Immediately, we are introduced to Noel Burun, a man who has the unusual syndrome of synesthesia and hypermnesia Accordingly, Noel s ability to see words as color lends itself to his ab [...]


    8. This is a quick and engaging book to read The characters are fabulous they are interesting and sympathetic But the plot gets and confusing as the book goes on By the end, I had no clue what was happening In fact, I found the ending very disappointing The writing style isn t well developed, and in my opinion could have benefited from vigorous editing Too much of the plot in the book seems to fall back on literary cliches The dialogue is stiff and hackneyed.That being said, the characters were [...]

    14. Less about synaesthesia than I d hoped, because only a fraction of the book is from Noel s the synaesthete s perspective, but still an entertaining story.



    15. When you finish the book, you will be thinking that its a true based story rather than a fiction, although it s what section you bought it from.
