BOOK REVIEW

Title: Remember
Author: Barbar Taylor Bradford
Genre: Romance
Date of Publication: January 1991

Plot: After a particularly emotional assigment covering the Tiannanmen square massacre in 1989, high achieving war journalist Nicki Wells settles into a new romance with longtime friend photographer Clee Donovan. But when something appears on the news one night about her former fiancee aristocrat John Deveraux, that stirs the investigative streak in her, she goes in search of answers.
Review: The book begins on a high note with a touching account of the horrors perpertuated by the Chinese government aginst her own people in 1989. After then, it kind of slows down with a lot of mundane details. Though after reading Ms. Bradford's  descriptions of the streets of New York,Paris and London, am even more determined to visit those cities and see things for myself. A girl can dream, right? But after waiting for so long for super intriguing to happen, it was a bit of a let down in the end. One thing is certain though, Ms. Bradford sure knows how to keep one in suspense. What I think she may have to work on is rewarding it in the end. It's not necessarily a bad book, but I just think that the climax wasn't juicy enough to compensate for all the time I spent waiting for it.
