Summary: She’s a wife, a sister, a daughter…but she remembers nothing. Now she must ask herself who she is and choose which stories—and storytellers—to trust. One of only two survivors of a plane crash, Nell Slattery wakes up in the hospital with no memory of it, or who she is, or was. Now she must piece together both body and mind with the help of family and friends who have their own agendas. Although Nell can’t remember all that came before, something just doesn’t sit right with the versions of her history given by her mother, her sister, and her husband. Desperate for a key to unlock her past, she filters through photos, art, music, and stories, hoping that something will jog her memory, and soon, in tiny bits and pieces, Nell starts remembering. . . .From the New York Times bestselling author of Time of My Life comes a novel that asks: Who are we without our memories? How much of our future is defined by our past? ~amazon.com
Review: When I began reading The Song Remains the Same, it reminded me of the movie The Vow. Married woman gets amnesia, husband tries to woo her, she puts her life back together. Similar right? Actually no. As Julie reminded me, the similarities end with amnesia. In the beginning, I kept looking for those nonexistent similarities so much that it blurred my perceptive. It didn’t help that I didn’t feel any love towards Peter (Nell’s husband), Nell’s mother and sister, or Anderson, the movie star and other plane crash survivor. Nell, on the other hand, I adored.
Final Take: 4/5
