He sighs and slows to a stop “There are a lot of things about the world we live in that you don’t understand Things you’ll find out in time” This is such a strange book I didn't hate it but it was just too much too confusing This book is like a strange mixture of Gone Girl and The Handmaid's TaleFor me this book was so anachronistic I liked it and I didn't like it It was somewhat original while being completely predictable There was nothing outrageously terrible in this book There's a love triangle that didn't bother me at all because for the latter 50% of the book I was likedafu am I reading D The last half of the book was a journey into what the actual fucks villeI'm just so utterly confused This book reads like a contemporary but it turned out to be a dystopian It started off fantastically The first 25% held my attention rapt But sadly this book didn't live up to its initial promiseIt's a little difficult for me to express my exact feelings on it so allow me to describe it to you through the use of DigimonIt starts off interestingly enough There's an egg You don't know what it holds Oh the possibilitiesThe egg is cracking open Oh it's so interesting How neat You the reader are intrigued However will it evolve nextAND WE'RE ON A MOTHERFUCKING HORSE YEAH YEAH This is going to be a hell of a ride It's hard to believe that this thing hatched from just a tiny little egg rightWait What the actual FUCK How the hell did we get from a horse toTHISThe Summary Emma doesn't remember anything She has been in an accident Nobody will tell her what happened She has to relearn everything Her handsome husband tells her what she needs to know Emma repeats and believes what she is told Declan her husband is so kind so loving She just wants to please him “You are my husband Declan Burke I am your wife Emma We were married in a small ceremony with only our closest friends atop our mountain”“Yes Emma that’s right You were absolutely beautiful” Emma is attracted to her husband but Declan is strangely reluctant to touch her He rejects her advances Emma feels safe in his embrace His arms wrap around tight and hold me as if I would run away and he could not bear it But I will not Not ever I want to be with him always Emma undergoes tests after tests She doesn't feel like a patient so much as a lab rat She absolutely hates these tests Emma has nightmares she has flashbacks in which she is someone else After these nightmares doctors try to uestion her about them Emma always lies; there's a voice inside her head that tells her not to trust these people This voice is called her she Emma and her mind are at war I told you to lie She says coolly You don’t understand yet but you willI only understand that I am at war with myself and I do not know why One way or another I will win Her days are a litany of tests medication; for some reason the doctors feel that Emma needs to be restrained When I look down I find I am bound to the table by Velcro straps Instinctively I jerk and the bindings burn and pinch my wrists“What are you doing” I ask panicked“I’ll remove them when I think you’re no longer a danger to yourself” Nobody will tell her what happened What is this accident Why did Emma lose her memoriesVery soon we realize that something's rotten Something's not right This is not our world as we know it There is strange technology Those take you out of the building She tells me Probably to other floors too They’re teleportation units Teleport Teleporting Teleportation You know teleportersThey split you into a million different pieces and send your bits to your destination You tell it where you want to port and it sends you there Get it Tell—a—port Stranger still than the existence of teleporters is the slow buildup of knowledge that something is deeply wrong with this world I recognize the acronym from one of my earlier dreams with Toni “WTC”“Women’s Training Center Where all our young women are prepared for marriage” There are so many uestions here There are no easy answers Who is Emma What is her husband hiding from her Who is the mysterious people who appears in her dreams Why is she in danger “You know what I am talking about Why do you insist on keeping my past a secret from me If you are trying to protect me stop I do not need your protection I need the truth before this gets any worse The Setting This is a rather unconvincing dystopian setting There is absolutely no info dumping at all but it doesn't feel entirely convincing It started off feeling like a contemporary but we're slowly given the buildup that this world is not what it should be Slowly we uncover the details It's intriguing it is Here we are presumably in the future We have teleportation technology we have huge ass television screensand we have an issue with female infertility “The women who are fertile these days” he continues while he stands and moves to one of his bookcases “are only fertile into their late twenties early thirties at most It isn’t disease or genetics just the unfortunate way things have progressed” This world is extremely vague and I don't uite understand it The background is pure telling not showing We're expected to believe that this happened that that happened without much of an explanation Part of the frustration comes from the narrator because of her amnesia and her innocence and placidity and acceptance of everything as factThe world itself is very two dimensional We have vague laws tossed out without much of a backdrop He slaps his hands to his knees and stands “I’m afraid you don’t have a choice Birth control is illegal Abortion is illegal with a very severe punishment Emma pregnancy is not a choice I’m sorry” We have inconsistencies in technology and medical advancements Her finger is healed with lasers A couple of nurses arrive take our vitals and clean up our scrapes and cuts One uses some kind of laser to heal my knuckle While there's still trouble with using blood thinners to fix a hemorrage We have teleportation technologies but we're still using phones and tablets and 21st century technology I mean these days we're starting to have Google Glass and etc don't you think in a future where we can teleport around telephones would be obsoleteThe Characters I had a lot of sympathy for Emma in the beginning because she is so innocent so trusting so naive My sympathy for her had severely diminished before the first half of the book is through Emma makes everything feel underwhelming She just doesn't feel like a real person with human emotions to me Emma ended the novel like she started a pretty doll slightly beaten upThe Plot I have a problem with the flashbacks We are pelted in every single chapter with memories flashbacks I get that these are important but it felt like I was reading two separate books at the same time without knowing what exactly was going on in either There was no infodumping regarding the world but there was a massive amount of infodumping regarding the characters in the flashbacks and dreamsThe story itself became intriguing to uh oh we're not in Kansas any and then uickly turned into a clusterfuck of tremendous proportions The book completely lost me around the 50% markThe Romance Very unbelievable since from the very beginning we are set up to hate and distrust one of the love interests I didn't have a problem with the romance because it was unconvincing it had no subtlety It like the book itself is completely predictable A good love triangle works because the emotions are convincing the characters are likeable and the reader is caught holding his or her breath to see who will emerge the victor There was no uestion as to who would win in this book it was that obvious
