Again, I break my own rule about reviewing stories that have already been reviewed, but I thought this story deserved more than The Black Knight had written. On the other hand, if we didn't live 4,000 miles away, I'm sure people would say that my reviews of Bob's stories intimated he and I were having a sexual relationship.
As that relationship is an impossibility, I guess it means his stories really are as good as I keep saying they are. So good I keep running out of superlatives. As for Mistrusting a Memory, I'm inclined to believe this is Bob's best story ever!
This is a tale of crime, justice, and lost memories, and deals with a crime that I consider to be more heinous than murder, the crime of rape, a particularly vicious rape. If you want to know the rest, read the story, but you may have to steel yourself a little to read it.
Technically, the work achieves a standard very few SoL authors ever achieve, the grammar and spelling are faultless, and there is no sign of the intrusive homonyms that blight other works on the site. The plot for Mistrusting a Memory, is, as far as I know, unique, and is beautifully crafted by the author. The characters are three dimensional, and engaging, and I confess I read this story in one hit, I couldn't leave it alone.
Mistrusting a Memory is part of a series of stories by Lubrican that revolve around loss of memory, and how the protagonists deal with that loss. So far, there are four stories in the series, and I can only hope there'll be more. All of them are excellent, though in my humble opinion Mistrusting a Memory is the best.
What's that you ask? Does the main female protagonist get pregnant? All I'm going to say is, Lubrican is ... Lubrican!
Read, and enjoy! Immensely!
This is yet another excellent story from Lubrican. It is a little outside of his normal style, but I found it, if anything, an improvement. The storyline and characters were really compelling, and even the minor members of the cast were interesting and served the story well. Technically, as usual, it was above average, although not without problems.
Anyone who enjoys a good crime drama with a bit of romance and some adult content should find this a must read. Anyone looking for pure stroke may be disappointed, and those who are squeamish about thee content might be better served looking elsewhere for their reading material, but I'd definitely recommend it to anyone else.
