Memory Thieves by Tayma Tameem is about a company that takes the memories of adventurous people who have difficulty sleeping. They will insert a device in their head to extract the memories that trouble their sleep and then sell it to billionaires. These buyers can then share in the experience without being there. The business hits a bump when Vincent Michaels enters the scene. Though he wants to sleep, his memories as a soldier are precious to him. The moment Vincent discovers he no longer has those memories, the desire to destroy the company builds. He enlists the help of an undercover agent, Kate. Will he succeed in his quest?
The author is a fantastic writer. She knows how to create things and engage the reader's imagination through detailed descriptions. One can easily see the picture she artistically paints with words. Here's how she perfectly describes Kate: "Her dishwater blonde hair lay gently on her shoulders, shining bright under the sunshine coming in through the window. It matched perfectly with her brown eyes, just a shade darker than hazelnut, yet just as stunning and captivating, he thought. The few freckles scattered around her cream-colored face gave her a younger look, an innocent one. Her smile was elegantly complemented by the dimples in her cheeks that gave her a more lovable look."
I love her writing style; she employs simple and straightforward language in communicating her thoughts. Anyone can easily understand and follow the line of events.
The plot of this book is a unique one. It's not every time one sees a book with such an incredible storyline. The author's creativity comes into play as the story progresses. She structures and executes her ideas with finesse and aplomb. She also manages to keep the suspense alive. The narrative is engaging — it has all the elements of a page-turner. This was what I liked most about this book.
Talking about my experience with the book, I was so captivated by the author's presentation that I found the book difficult to put down. The few times I took a break from reading, I couldn't wait to go back and continue from where I stopped.
The author did a good job crafting this masterpiece. However, I feel she did include many unnecessary details, and there was no touch of humor in the book. In my opinion, the book could use a little bit of humor to spice it up.
Although I found a few errors in the book, they didn't affect how much I enjoyed it. Hence, there was nothing serious I disliked about the book — it was exceptionally written and professionally edited. I'd give it four out of four stars. And I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys an excellent action-packed thriller.
