False Memory - Dan Krokos False Memory bugged me. It had everything that would make it a book I normally liked but I couldn't get into. There's character tension, action, and unanswered questions. I love that stuff! I should have devoured it. I think my problem was that the seeming depth of the novel was often smoke and mirrors. The characters are really very two dimensional, defined by a single choice or action early in the book. While their emotional reaction to these events resonates with me initially, the plot didn't develop enough for them to evolve leaving me frustrated. Also because of the non-stop action there was no real world building. When I say that I mean that this read much like a television pilot in book form. Since I love world building that was just frustrating. I know a lot of people who will love this book, but I am not one of them.
