    I take no pleasure in writing reviews for books I found less than thrilling, but unfortunately Mr Nobody by Catherine Steadman ticked only a few of my boxes Perhaps it is having read too many books in the genre, but I found the pacing to be slow to the point of crippling, and the climax lacked the twists and turns I expected based on the author s previous novel, Something in the Water If you enjoy psychological thrillers that feature amnesia storylines, this might work well for you, and I enc I take no pleasure in writing reviews for books I found less than thrilling, but unfortunately Mr Nobody by Catherine Steadman ticked only a few of my boxes Perhaps it is having read too many books in the genre, but I found the pacing to be slow to the point of crippling, and the climax lacked the twists and turns I expected based on the author s previous novel, Something in the Water If you enjoy psychological thrillers that feature amnesia storylines, this might work well for you, and I encourage you to give it a try for yourself The cover is stunning, and I will definitely give the author s next book a tryMany thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy via NetGalley.

    2.5 stars, rounded upCatherine Steadman scored big with Something in the Water, although it wasn t a particular favorite of mine But I was still curious to see what she would do with her sopho effort The book opens with a man awakening on the beach, wounded, with only hazy memories Among the missing memories are how he got there and what his name is Dr Emma Lewis is brought in to oversee his case She wants to see if this is truly a fugue state, a case of Retrograde amnesia, the loss of 2.5 stars, rounded upCatherine Steadman scored big with Something in the Water, although it wasn t a particular favorite of mine But I was still curious to see what she would do with her sopho effort The book opens with a man awakening on the beach, wounded, with only hazy memories Among the missing memories are how he got there and what his name is Dr Emma Lewis is brought in to oversee his case She wants to see if this is truly a fugue state, a case of Retrograde amnesia, the loss of all personal memories.I m not a big fan of books where the main character is privy to information that isn t shared with the reader Here, we quickly learn that something happened in Emma s teen years that caused the family to move away and change their names But we aren t told what It soon becomes apparent that Mr Nobody knows what has happened as well Despite the irritation at the author s little trick of misinformation, the book moves at a fast clip and kept my interest The book is written so that Mr Nobody s sections are written in the third person and Emma s in the first person At times, it feels that she s almost talking to the reader It allows the author to slip in little psychological bits of knowledge, like defining blindsight His sections bring you forward from the time he is discovered, hers don t start until after he s been in care for six days and she s brought in to consult So, there is initially a back and forth jostling in the time There are other characters which also kept my interest In fact, my favorite part of the book was the drama between Chris and Zara and I wish their story had played a bigger part overall So, I was all happy with this book until about 80% in when it completely falls apart The ending was so nonsensical that all my earlier happiness with this book just disappeared Seriously, I would have graded the first part of the book 4 stars and the ending at 1 My thanks t netgalley and Random House for an advance copy of this book

    Something In the Water was a 5 star read for me that blew me away When given the chance to read Catherine Steadmans new book Mr Nobody I jumped at the chance While for me this one wasn t as addictive as her first book, I still really enjoyed it It took me a while to get into the story but once I did I was really sucked in and wanting to know how it would end Every time I thought I had it worked out it twisted again The ending was a little bizarre and over the top and not at all how I saw it Something In the Water was a 5 star read for me that blew me away When given the chance to read Catherine Steadmans new book Mr Nobody I jumped at the chance While for me this one wasn t as addictive as her first book, I still really enjoyed it It took me a while to get into the story but once I did I was really sucked in and wanting to know how it would end Every time I thought I had it worked out it twisted again The ending was a little bizarre and over the top and not at all how I saw it going A man is found on a beach in Norfolk with no identification He is It speaking and appears to have no memory He is taken to hospital and is soon the talk of the media Doctor Emma Lewis never thought she would return to the beach town she grew up in But when she is asked to help Mr Nobody she has to face her past She is an expert in this field and is intrigued by the man Who is he, where did he come from and what is going on in his brain Thanks to Simon and Schuster Australia and Netgalley for my advanced copy of this book to read ALl opinions are my own and are in no way biased

    Emma Lewis is a leader in her field of memory loss and is chosen to work on a case that will challenge her to determine the diagnosis is it retrograde amnesia, fugue or lying It will require her to return to her home town, which she and her family changed their names and left 14 years ago But Emma knows it s a big opportunity for her career because these cases are so rare This perfect offer out of the blue, this opportunity, the chance I ve been waiting for But I d have to go there Why doe Emma Lewis is a leader in her field of memory loss and is chosen to work on a case that will challenge her to determine the diagnosis is it retrograde amnesia, fugue or lying It will require her to return to her home town, which she and her family changed their names and left 14 years ago But Emma knows it s a big opportunity for her career because these cases are so rare This perfect offer out of the blue, this opportunity, the chance I ve been waiting for But I d have to go there Why does it have to be there of all the places in the world I ve spent fourteen years of my life trying to get away from that place, what happened there, and now now I find out that the only way forward, the only way out, is back. if I m honest, it scares me My face out there connected and connected and connected until it all leads back to that one night The night when my whole world was shattered and it was easier to just throw the whole thing in the trash than try to fix it.Both main characters have issues with the past Emma hides her past whereas Mr Nobody has no past He was found on a beach and has no memory of who he is or where he came from It s up to Emma to determine whether she can help him to remember But she is having problems of her own His world shrinks to a pinhead and then dilates so wide, suddenly terrifyingly borderless He has no edges any Who is he He has no self He feels the panic roaring inside him, escalating, his heart tripping faster His mind frantically searches for something anything to grab a hold of, his eyes wildly scanning the landscape around him But there is no escape from it, the void He is here and there is no before There are no answers. I ve been so focused on putting those pieces and you back together again that somewhere along the way I came apart at the seams.What a fun ride this was It had all the elements of a great psychological thriller suspense, mystery, twists and turns, hard to put down, kept you guessing, etc I was in the minority with my response to Steadman s previous work Something in the Water It just didn t float my boat LOL I was hesitant to read another book by Steadman but ultimately decided to take the chance and I am so glad I did Mr Nobody grabbed me right from the start and kept me turning the pages as fast as possible The premise was fascinating and the execution did it justice This is a compelling story that you won t be able to put down I thought I had figured some of it out but I was happy to learn I was wrong Mr Nobody is a unique story that you won t feel you ve read before The premise is fascinating and the execution does it justice.Thank you to Random House Publishing Group Ballantine Books and NetGalley for an advance reader copy in exchange for my honest review
