My Review of Remember Me from Goodreads and my Blog
Remember Me - Amaleen Ison
What a fantastic little story.  I just loved it! Now, I say little, because it is a novella, and only about 50 pages. But, those 50 pages are fictional gold.

The descriptions are so vivid, as if Ms. Ison is painting a portait in your mind. So clear you can just sit back and watch the story unfold. I just love when a story can do that. Make the words disappear and you are left watching a film — a mental movie of the book you’re reading. I really felt IN the story beside Sera throughout her struggles to understand what is happening to her.

The characterizations are just as strong. Each of the characters in the story, from the more prevalent, Sim, Father and Noah, to the less seen, Martha and Angela — each one completely flesh out and three dimensional.

I don’t do spoilers in my reviews, so the excerpt and blurb will have to give you enough clues to go by. I’ll not be adding any. Sorry, folks. You will have to just content yourself with knowing how much I enjoyed the short read, and how highly I recommend it to all the YA fan out there, as well as anyone who just enjoys a great, well written story.

 

5 Enthusiastic Pirate Skulls for this well woven YA tale.

The Trouble with Nightingale
The Trouble with Nightingale - Amaleen Ison

This story might have been short, but the pacing was just so that I was able to take my time with it. I have to admit, I did worry that I was going to be faced with a story that had been crammed into too few words. Whilst, yes, it would probably make an awesome novel because Millie and the GP could be sent on so many adventures cleaning up the neighbourhood, I didn’t reach the end and find the story particularly lacking for its length. Ms Ison’s prose was pretty smooth, allowing the reader to amble along without a hitch, her descriptions were cool, ensuring I always knew what was happening and what the MC was seeing, and her characters were witty. Whilst I did like Millie a lot, I do believe Mr-Nekkid-Guinea Pig-Polar Bear-FABian almost stole the show from her because he was a hoot. I’ve read a few of the reviews that have described this as a dark and creepy tale. Personally, I giggled most of the way through it. The ending certain induced a snort that gained me a few stares. Maybe I have a perverse sense of humour. But this is, without doubt, a fun little tale that would suit almost anyone for a bit of light-hearted entertainment.

Remember Me - Amaleen Ison Was rather disappointed that it was such a short story. The idea/plot was one that had the potential to be a good full length book. However, once cramped into 46 pages, it was rushed and the characters did not get the full development that they rightly deserved. As a result, the book fell apart and turned out to not be that great.

Remember Me - Amaleen Ison Remember Me is a poetic masterpiece of intrigue, suspense and a touch of paranormal romance. As with everything this author writes, the prose flows through my head like silk and weaves the story like a piece of art I can see behind my eyes. Sera's plight had my heart hurting and me clinging to the edge of my seat while she tried to break free of her tortured existence to discover her past and make decisions on her future.

Bravo, Ms. Ison, on a story that will haunt the halls of my memory for a long time.
