Whole review is here -

When l received this book (Thanks again Diana) l was shocked by how small the book is, it’s only 192 pages. You couldn't be blamed for thinking ‘Can this book be any good when it’s so small? Can it introduce the characters in time and get a good story line in?’ well in answer to that, yes. Yes it is a good book even though it is only 2/3 the size of most books, yes it does let you get to the know the characters well but still have a good story line behind it, yes the size of the book fits the story perfectly.

I was straight away drawn into the book even though the beginning is a bit confusing. When you understand it, it is very clever way to start the book and definitely makes you want to read on. More importantly, when it keeps you wanting to read more Memento Nora doesn’t feel rushed, you have the information you need to follow the story, probably not as much as any books but enough. I didn’t know the book is told from three peoples point of view but l enjoyed this, although sometimes l forgot to look who’s point of view the next chapter is fro. I felt by doing it from more than one persons point of view it meant the information you need is there as you are in three peoples 'minds'

This book is hard to write a review about without containing spoilers as everything happens quite quickly. l wouldn’t say there is ALOT going on in the book but it still keeps me engrrossed, mainly because l love the concept of this book about the pill which you can take. The differences between characters also interested me, l love how they interacted together when they are different (In ways l won’t say) Also like l mentioned above, the characters are still developed well even though everything happens quite quickly in this book. I felt l knew Nora as well as l know other characters that are in books that are 400 pages long, that shows the book is written well in my eyes!
