Sometimes books show up in my "Ready to download" queue and I have no idea what they're about or why I ordered them. I think this author wrote a tor.com short story?

I didn't realize this was a YA novel, so I had higher expectations based on what I vaguely remember of the author's other work. But the story is fast paced and easy to read, so despite my low rating, I'm still totally going to order the rest of the series. ( )

Turned into an exciting read with lots of little twits and a major one at the climax, although I did skim a lot in the first half to get past her excessive denials that only delayed the inevitable reveal when the thriller really started. ( )

It took me a while to get into this one. We start off meeting "Violet"after she is discovered on the wreckage of a plan that went down in the ocean. She had no memory of how she got there or who she is, actually she doesn't seem to remember anything. She spends time in the hospital, and while everyone is looking for her next of kin, and her photo is plastered all over the news; no one seems to be stepping forward to claim this 16 year old girl. "Violet" is so called because of her unusual eye color.

Violet has a visitor while in the hospital, but trying to fight against the drugs given to her to help her sleep isn't easy and she starts to think that it wasn't real. Once she is released from the hospital, she sees someone that she thinks was the visitor from her room, though she isn't sure and she is frightened of him. She is placed with a foster family that lives out in a little town. This is where things start to pick up a little bit.

Violet meets her foster parents son after he returns from camp. Violet, ends up going to the store with her foster mother, and there she runs into this mysterious guy again, he tells her what her name really is, and that she was never on that plane. While "Violet" whom we now know was called Sera, short for Seraphina; doesn't really belive the boy, she convinces her foster brother to go with her to the airport, to see if she was really on that plane.

I got kind of bored with the story at this point and stopped reading for a few days, and then went back to it. Long story short, Sera starts to believe what the boy Zen is telling her and she ends up at a diner where she is chased. She is captured, and in the end released by one of the guys who created her. So she isn't fully human, she's more super human. But then things change again! She leaves with Zen and he helps her recover some of her memories, using a device sort of like a thumb drive for a computer. In the end Sera believes everything that Zen has told her and they run off together, only to have Zen captured and Sera eventually give herself up to save him. I really hope that this turns out to be more than just one book, I can't stand not knowing if the two love birds make it to where they were originally heading and if the people that created Sera continue to look for her.

I didn't hate this book. At least, I don't think I did. it's hard to tell, since I read half of it while procrastinating on an essay and finished it half a year later, but I was honestly just confused.

I did read this book badly. that's on me. but this book was also nonsensical, and that's on the book. before I read it, I tried to ascertain what it was about by reading the gr description, asking friends, etc., but no one could actually tell me what this book was about without spoiling it. having read the book I now know they weren't exaggerating--this book didn't have a clear plot until I was two thirds of the way through it. I'm sorry, but that's not okay.

I've liked Brody's work in the past, and would have loved to enjoy this... if I'd read it well, I might have. but I didn't. ( )

Unremembered's plot reminded me of Miracle by Elizabeth Scott, both having to do with lone survivors of plane crashes. While Miracle was a more realistic read, Unremembered ventured off into the more unknown sci-fi type of world. Whether this was a good thing was all up to the writer's ability to draw me into Sera's story. Alas, that wasn't the case for this book.

This had so much potential by depicting a survivor of a plane crash that can't remember anything even who she is or where she came from. There was a lot of build up to the moment Sera realizes who she is. Originally the story was flowing and I was enjoying the mystery and even the build up to the big reveal. But, it fell stagnant for me. Sera, wasn't exactly a character who I could feel for. Her character wasn't exactly flat; it was just how the events were occurring that didn't shape her into being someone other than the lost girl we first see her as. There's a boy (there's always a boy) who is supposed to be her soul mate but when Sera was discovering her memories I didn't really understand their love for each other. It didn't tug at my heart like it was supposed to. So not enjoying one of the largest parts of what made the book was disheartening.

The mystery of Sera was really interesting. I was enjoying the story half way through when the big mystery started coming to light. But I didn't like how it was presented at all. Again, the characters made the big difference in me not enjoying how the story was proceeding so that was a major factor in how I perceived the rest of the story. It just didn't work for me. Looking back I feel like most of the story wasn't just build up to the "reveal" but to the second story which frustrates me because if you aren't going to make characters that you can care for it's not worth creating a second story. If more time was taken with the characters I believe I would have enjoyed this book way more. Its sci-fi and mystery elements were on point but the way Unremembered was executed just wasn't believable. ( )
