Review of Removable Echo by Anne Sophie

How can she trust, when she doesn't remember?

In the seemingly perfect world of Paliav, the government enforces a strict way of living on its citizens. Before beginning a new stage in their lives, they are required to attend an appointment where their irrelevant memories are removed. This is supposed to make them live carefree, and adjust to changes well.

As sixteen-year-old Mara is plucked out of her daily routine, and brought to a removal centre, she prays for a miracle that will allow her to keep all her memories, especially those of her loved ones. But with no way to fight back, she forgets everyone she’d ever known.

Back to leading an ordinary life, Mara is confused and frightened when she finds a forbidden note from someone who reveals a secret: one that might threaten their very lives. With no memories of their shared past, Mara must decide whether or not she can trust this person.

Mara has to overcome her fear and doubt to fight for freedom and a happier life, without the looming threat of another removal. And she has to decide if she can trust her feelings, when she no longer knows how they came to be.

My Review: 5 STARS

I picked this up for pre-order having seen it talked about, the cover called out to me and the blurb left me intrigued to know more. Straight off the bat, I was hooked on Mara’s world. The thought of losing my memories at someone else’s demand was terrifying, and I adored the way the story pulls you in and leaves you wanting more. As the story progressed, as you got deeper into the twists and turns of the plot, you find yourself trying to work out more about how this dystopian world fits. I loved Mara, liked Emily and Flynn, and am glad I’ve picked up the second book to read ASAP. Very much recommended to all those who are fond of dystopian!
