The Memory Keeper's Daughter Reviews

  • Dorie  - Cats&Books :)
    This is a wonderfully unique story. Ms. Edwards creates characters very real and situations that are effectively believable. After delivering his wife's first child, while she is unaware of what is happening, he delivers another child, this one with Down's syndrome. He makes a quick decision to spar...

    This book was terrible, not because it was bad, but because it was so good: I couldn't put it down until I finished the final pages at 3 in the morning. Not a good thing, when your alarm goes off at 5:50 AM.What fascinates me about this book is what it has to say about "secrets." The basic premise: ...

    I read a bunch of reviews of this book prior to reading it myself, and wasn't sure whether or not I would enjoy it.I was pleasantly surprised to find that I liked this book quite a bit, and here's why:1.

    Note: This review is chock full of spoilers! Read at your own risk.Ugh. This book was a disappointment. I was drawn in by the premise, my mother-in-law having borne twins where one was neurotypical and the other was not (cerebral palsy in our case). As I got into the story, though, its shortcomings ...

    Will someone please explain to me why, at my age, and I should know better, I'm stilled swayed by the words "No. 1 N.Y. Times Bestseller!"? I found this for fifty cents at my library's used book sale last week. A warning I clearly ignored. But it had a good title, a beautiful, mysterious cover, and ...

    At first I couldnt pinpoint exactly why I was not enjoying a book that sounded as though it would be my kind of book in every way, but the more I read and the more I thought about it, the more reasons emerged. From the beginning of the novel there were little details that bothered me. The plot often...
