Book Review: Memory Thief by Bryce Moore9:18 PM
|The Memory Thief by Bryce Moore|
The Book:Twin brother and sister Benji and Kelly wander off at the local county fair after witnessing their parents argue. When Benji runs into a group of bullies, he escapes into a tent called The Memory Emporium, where he meets a strange old man inside named Louis. The old man shows him a magically vivid memory of a fighter pilot, in the hopes of getting Benji to pay to see other memories Louis has collected from people over the years.
My Review:I accepted this book for review thinking it would be a quick easy read that would entertain me on a rainy day, and it did exactly that, only the day wasnt rainy it was just extremely over cast, but it was cold, so i could accept that as a happy medium.
This novel had such a thought out way of explaining a core part of human life in a way that will have it's middle grade readers taking away a deep and personal message from this.
The Memory Thief I'm not too familiar with reading books with male protagonist in it but this novel was a good introduction to that.
I thoroughly enjoyed learning about memories and the effects they have on who we are and our lives, Bryce Moore weaved an epic journey of positive and negative consequence that can be a lesson for all of us, especially the middle grade readers this novel is aimed at.
The Memory Thief is a story everybody can get on board with and still enjoy, and get something out of.
I will be giving this four stars on Goodreads.
