There are only so many plots and endings that can make up a thriller. I thought this book had a refreshing story-line and an unpredictable ending. While searching for herself online, Caroline realizes that she cannot remember much of what has happened in the last six years as her memories have disappeared. She struggles to get a grip on her present as she learns about her past. The story became very intriguing as Caroline learned more and more about what has been going on for the past six years.
In the beginning of Natiello's novel, I wasn't very engaged. Things started out slowly as the solid plot was being built. Once the story began to pick up, I was much more interested. Although there were a few other slow parts in the book that didn't seem necessary, they didn't slow me down. I kept reading, finishing the book rather fast in order to find out what would happen next. Throughout the book, there were times I had to take a brief break, letting my brain wrap around what I had just read. Then I picked the book right back up, eager to find out what secrets Caroline would uncover and what she would do about them.
I think the main character, Caroline, was very well developed. She did many things that I would not have guessed, causing me to laugh out loud a few times. While I did suspect one of the major secrets that was trapped in Caroline's past, there were so many that shocked and surprised me! Also, the ending seemed very realistic, which is important to me as a reader.
I would give this book 4 out of 4 stars. It kept me engaged and I felt connected to the main character. It left me feeling stunned many times. I would recommend reading this book, whether you love suspense and thrillers or even if they're not really your thing. You won't be disappointed with The Memory Box!
