THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Name a book that was turned into a movie, and completely desecrated (in your opinion).

I am currently reading a NetGalley e-ARC that will be released tomorrow!  Usually, I am more ahead of the game, but I had written down the wrong release date.  At any rate, it is a quick read because I can’t seem to put it down.

All Is Not Forgotten, by Wendy Walker, is “a powerful novel that blends suspense and rich family drama…it is, in a word, unforgettable.” –William Landay, author of DEFENDING JACOB

Blurb:  It begins in the small, affluent town of Fairview, Connecticut, where everything seems picture perfect.

Until one night when young Jenny Kramer is attacked at a local party. In the hours immediately after, she is given a controversial drug to medically erase her memory of the violent assault. But, in the weeks and months that follow, as she heals from her physical wounds, and with no factual recall of the attack, Jenny struggles with her raging emotional memory. Her father, Tom, becomes obsessed with his inability to find her attacker and seek justice while her mother, Charlotte, struggles to pretend this horrific event did not touch her carefully constructed world.

As Tom and Charlotte seek help for their daughter, the fault lines within their marriage and their close-knit community emerge from the shadows where they have been hidden for years, and the relentless quest to find the monster who invaded their town – or perhaps lives among them – drive this psychological thriller to a shocking and unexpected conclusion.

The story is told from an interesting perspective, an omniscient one, if you will.  It takes a while to get used to this, and the narrator is unknown to us for a good portion of the book.

Check it out!
