I wish I could give a 2.5 rating to this book...but there is no such option.

As I read somewhere in a review, Forgotten can be easily forgotten...Forgotten has a story line which will question your logic many times if you think through the story...

The author has made the story based on what could go wrong in a person's life in a short span...And the thing that questioned my logic is the theme of the story.

Lisa was a 20 year old when she met David in a party. David was married to Catrina for a few years and their marriage was going through a rough patch. David and Lisa fell in love with each other. Meanwhile Catrina was demanding for a divorce. Later Catrina wanted to get back with David and they did so, leaving Lisa in a difficult position. Twenty years later Catrina dies of cancer and David and Lisa gets back together and decides to get married.

Probably because I am still single, I couldn't absorb the logic of Lisa and David sharing the same feelings they had for each other 20 years back. The character of David's daughter Rosalind is pathetic especially when she is a mother of a 8 yr old kid suffering from Asperger's syndrome (Yea this is the favorite disease of the modern writers.)

I enjoyed reading through the story and wasn't disappointed as I had no high expectations about this book. There was so many sad moments described in the book, but nothing went through to my heart.

This is all I can write about this book without giving out the story...
