Rush hour, Grand Central Station. Aaron Clifford stops dead in his tracks, commuters swirling around him -- but he doesn't know he's Aaron Clifford. He doesn't know who he is at all. No matter how hard he tries, he has no memory of why he is there, where he came fro

I was a bit reluctant to start reading this book, but once I did, I just wanted to keep going and going and going ...
You know something is off the whole time, but you can't quite put your finger on it.
The curiosity to know what exactly is going on along with the fast paced well written structure of the book makes it such a pleasure to read.

Andrew Neiderman was born in 1940 and is an American novelist, screen writer and ghost writer. He taught English in upstate New York before he started writing books. Neiderman is married to the former model Dian Wilson and they have two children, and three grandchildren.

Amnesia is certainly not the best known of his novels. Still, I enjoyed it, it was not your average ‘amnesia’ story and I stayed up late to finish it as I could not wait to see how it ended.

The story starts during rush hour in Gr

This has similarities to The Stepford Wives(or at least, I think so, but I haven't read/seen that so I'm only going on vague memory of what has been said about it). It also took me several times to scenes in The Truman Show. I thought I'd check out to see what came out first, but I can't be bothered when it comes down to it.

I quite enjoyed this book, and it has a lot of descriptions of how the protagonist understands his "amnesia", so it's useful for my research.

Couldn't decide whether to give this 2 or 3 stars. I enjoyed it, it wasn't your average 'amnesia' story and I stayed up late to finish it as I couldn't wait to see how it ended.
But the ending spoilt it for me. It seemed to conclude in 2 short chapters, left questions unanswered & didn't fit the feel of the rest of the book. The ending could have been from a different novel. It's hard to go into too much detail without giving any of the plot away, but it's still worth a look as it's an easy

This was another freebie from Sony eReader. I thought it was a good beach book. Sort of a Stepford-Wives type tale where a man suddenly finds himself in Grand Central station not knowing who he is or where he is going. He finds his way "home" to find he is moving the next day to a new home in what may be a little bit TOO much of an ideal community. A good, light read.

I have to say this book droned on for a while and really only got good by the last three chapters. Andrew neiderman uses a great amount of metaphors and similes (sometimes too many). However this book kept me guessing the whole time and the ending was not at all what I was expecting. Therefore I give this three stars.

The promise is great. But, there's something lack with this story. I feel like it's lack character development, tension, conflict, and so on. Yes, there's mystery but if feels superficial. It's like we've given subtle hints about the ending. Or maybe this is just not my kind of story. Anyway, I appreciate the author to make the story about amnesia since I really love amnesia story.

This was weird but in a good way. Very descriptive, interesting characters, different.
There were three or four too blatant instances of foreshadowing that were unnecessary, the reader was already suspicious.

From start to finish this book is very spooky. Not in a, something is about to jump out and get you, way. More like they are acting in a strange way. Something doesn't feel alright way. Would you like to live in a world where everything is perfect. But you aren't allowed to question anything?
