Review: The Last Thing I Remember

The Last Thing I Remember by Andrew Klavan

The Last Thing I Remember

By Andrew Klavan

Blurb: Charlie West just woke up in someone else's nightmare.

He's strapped to a chair. He's covered in blood and bruises. He hurts all over. And a strange voice outside the door just ordered his death.

The last thing he can remember, he was a normal high-school kid doing normal things--working on his homework, practicing karate, daydreaming of becoming an air force pilot, writing a pretty girl's number on his hand. How long ago was that? Where is he now? Who is he really?

And more to the point . . . how is he going to get out of this room alive?

Genres: Action, Adventure, Christian, Mystery, YA

Series: The Homelanders by Andrew Klavan

My Rating: 4 stars

I really liked this book. It's not stereotypical Christian Fiction. Honestly, I couldn't really tell it was Christian. That's not a bad thing, it just means that it was a lot more Action-y then usual and it isn't preachy at all.

The story starts off with Charlie waking up and not remembering anything after one seemingly normal day at high school. But wait, there's more; he's also being tortured in the middle of nowhere.

...I mean come on, how can you NOT pick this book up?! That's one of the most awesome plots ever! (Some people compared it to the Bourne series; I've never seen them, which made the book a whole lot more interesting)

I really liked Charlie West. He was responsible, stood up for what he believed in, and you just can't help but root for him.

You don't get very many answers in this book, and that made me hungry for more of this series. Andrew Klavan knows how to write a good thriller!

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes a fast paced story and/or Christian fiction. Trust me, you won't want to put it down!
