Amnesia – Michael Ridpath


I found the beginning of this book intriguing as it described the relationship between an elderly gentleman with his young carer extremely well. I don’t usually like a novel where the time flicks backwards and forwards between two eras, but this one was so well written that it all fitted in really well. I did find the plot a little complicated and the coincidence of a covered up murder occurring twice in the main character’s life rather unbelievable. The descriptions of both characters and the surrounding Scottish landscape were extremely good making them all rather dark. There was a good twist at the end too. (less)
