    martin7360's book review was featured in The Amnesia Clinic.
    James Scudamore’s novel The Amnesia Clinic which has two main protagonists, Anthony, also known as Anti, and Fabián, whose friendship is based on fictitious storytelling, is based on them trying to find an “Amnesia Clinic”. The whole story spans over about a week, so it was expected from the author to introduce a lot of detail, which has been done in a thorough manner, however beware for the use of various, not that often used, words, or even swear words, which appear more towards the end as tension grows. I often found myself imagining the picture of what was happening thanks to the very vivid and thorough descriptions and images, which could span over a whole page. The concept of the novel is very... interesting to say the least. Even though the main goal is to find and reach the “Amnesia Clinic”, it is not the main focus. The main focus is on the surroundings and other sub-stories, which happen throughout their journey. I find this book interesting for its focus on how lies may become an important, or rather crucial, part of a person’s life after certain, perhaps tragic, events, like the death of one’s parents. Even though the story in itself wasn’t that interesting to me for the most part, I find it excellent for analysis purposes and for thinking about.
