When Laura wakes up after her workplace drinks get together and sees a person’s shirt on her bed room ground, she is horrified. However that is no unusual one-night-stand remorse. Laura suffers from extreme face-blindness, a situation which means she is totally unable to establish and bear in mind faces. So the person she spent all night time dancing with and kissing – the person she thought she’d introduced dwelling – was ‘Pink Shirt’. However the shirt on her ground is blue. And now Laura should go to work day by day, and face the person who took benefit of her situation. The person she has no manner of recognising. She doesn’t know who he’s . . . however when she finds him she’ll make him pay.
I’ve by no means learn a guide like this earlier than. To be sincere, I’ve by no means heard of face blindness and I discovered it so fascinating to find out about it. The guide explored the problem of consent all through in a extremely completely different strategy to some other guide I’ve learn. I discovered that, at occasions, the guide could possibly be a bit repetitive. Quite a lot of it simply centered on Laura’s work life and it was a little bit of a drag generally. I favored how the guide centered extra on Laura and the way the assault impacted her relatively than her attacker. For me, the ending was a bit meh. The precise attacker was a little bit of a let down simply because I felt we didn’t know them tremendous properly and so they had been largely within the background. I’d have most popular if a extra distinguished character had been behind it. I didn’t actually like that the climax of the story didn’t give attention to what occurred to Laura. It was extra about David and Rebecca. The reveal of Laura’s attacker did really feel like an afterthought in a manner. I did like how the completely different tales got here collectively and my points with the tempo of the story have been made up for a bit with the fascinating storyline. All in all, a good learn with an excellent story. It was a bit gradual and it did drag however I nonetheless loved it and I’d suggest it.
