𝑇ℎ𝑒 𝐹𝑖𝑟𝑒 𝑜𝑛 𝑀𝑒𝑚𝑜𝑟𝑦 𝐿𝑎𝑛𝑒 by Felix I D Dimaro – bookreview

Connor is a troubled man, especially since his wife left him after they experienced a traumatic event in which they lost their son. Before he had it all, now he’s contemplating leaving it all behind him. But then comes a certain add, promising eternal bliss, in the form of a vial with blue liquid. That liquid brings memories back to live, only you’re living them again! At first Connor is wary but when he’s offered a tryout, he’s hooked! As broken as he was after his life changed completely, as destructive he becomes now, addicted to his past life!

❗️mild spoilers ‼️

This is part of a read along hosted by @theindiehorrorbookclub – I wasn’t sure I would finish it this month (it has been a weird month, I was in a rather special mood) but I did and I’m glad I did! This book was confronting, eye-opening, funny even and that ending just left me slack-jawed! Connor is a very destructive toxic person and you hate to feel sorry for him, but you can’t not feel sorry! He’s to pity! And the only one still believing in him and his redemption, is his own brother. All others have given up with his behaviour! At the end you might want to ponder the question: is it justice what happens to him?

And what made me realise as well, reading this, is how much time I (and probably a lot of others) am spending on thinking of what has been… I dare wonder in my mind and think of those days… when I was running around as a kid, my first loves, my first party… would I be able to resist Memlain-8? Or would I succumb?
! one last note ! I loved the drawings in this book! (That feather 👏)

So yeah: 4/5⭐️
