The Last Thing I Remember
What I liked about the book
I liked the action in the book had and how in the beginning the author does a great job of hooking the reader and keeping them interested. The flash backs within the story were a good addition to the story and the timing of everything was very good. The author never gave away anything and kept my interest throughout the book. The author also wrote in first person, which I personally like, and he did a good job of making Charlie, the main character, easy to relate to. He was an all-American, teenage boy that had school, relationship, and family problems like everyone in today's world. I really liked this book and the way the author times the events. Nothing happens too soon that something is given away, but the story keeps moving and doesn't drag. I also finished it in a day.
What I did not like about the book
The only thing I can complain about this book is the fact that there were some racial stereotypes that could have been changed easily. With the enemy and who turned out to be who it was a little stereotypical.
"Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never - in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in except to conviction of honor and good sense." (pg. 26)
Would I recommend it
Yes I would recommend this book to anyone. It was a pretty quick read and it was an enjoyable book. It has action, mystery, and the author did a good job of writing the story line. With the flash back and how Charlie finds out more and more about his past.
