"My name is Steve Lewis.
I know this because it's one of the few things I remember.
I have a wife, a son, and I run a successful business.
I know this because that's what they tell me.
I remember things that aren't true.
I forget things that are.
I see things and people that aren't real.
You see, I have brain damage
...and that's the only rational explanation for things like this."

I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
Steve is an ordinary man who wakes up in hospital after an accident. Suffering amnesia, he doesn't remember his wife, his son or his business.
This was such a wonderfully written novel, I couldn't stop listening. It was so interwoven that even at the end I was asking myself questions about the plot. It was easy to get caught up in Steve's confusion and to completely immerse yourself in the novel. Part of that must be attributed to the brilliant narrator, Timothy McKean, who really made Steve feel like a flesh and blood person. Every emotion was brilliantly portrayed and amazingly crafted.
I loved the psychological twist running through this book, and at times I did start to question whether Steve was really suffering from brain damage, especially after he started seeing his father. The explanation for this was so sweet and made me love this book even more.
The love triangle between Hayley and Lisa threw me a bit. I thought from the beginning that Steve was married to Hayley and Lisa had used the accident as a way of slipping herself into his life. Well kind of and not really at the same time. Lisa and Tyler I found rather interesting. Given the ending, I'm not entirely sure why the plot is as it is, but I'm willing to give it another listen to try and understand. Tyler also confused me throughout the novel because he never acted like a son to Steve, and given the ending, I do now understand, but it was a major question that I kept asking throughout the novel.
Overall, this book was amazing. Absolutely worth a listen.
