Rated 1 out of 5 by from Slow and agonizing I tried, but I really couldn't get into this one. Although things were looking promising with Anna going through tests for her memory loss, the book was moving way too slowly. Also, quite a few characters were introduced. Since the book is based in Paris, the characters have long, hard to pronounce names that I couldn't easily remember. Life is too short and there are too many good books out there to spend time on the ones that don't capture your interest right away!
