Thanks For The Memories, Cecelia Ahern,
Building on a very popular talk piece of the time of writing, Thanks For The Memories, is a fantastically crafted story that highlights how much another person’s perspective can change your life.
Joyce Conway remembers things she shouldn’t. She knows about tiny cobbled streets in Paris, which she has never visited. And every night she dreams about an unknown little girl with blonde hair.
Justin Hitchcock is divorced, lonely and restless. He arrives in Dublin to give a lecture on art and is persuaded to donate blood. It’s the first thing to come straight from his heart for a long time.
When Joyce leave hospital after a terrible accident, with her life and her marriage in pieces, she moves back in with her elderly father. All the while, a strong sense of déjà vu is overwhelming her and she cannot figure out why.
This is an incredibly well written story about two people, going through very different, and yet overlapping similar, phases of life. Both characters in this novel will captivate you for very different reasons, revealing how similar a story can be, and yet how ones perspective of that story, that life, can shape the outcomes.
A wonderfully thought provoking story that sits comfortably on any book shelf, Thanks For The Memories is a true joy to read.
We give Thanks For The Memories Four stars.
