Publisher's Summary

Sharon Cameron returns to the rich world of The Forgetting with a companion novel as thrilling and intricately crafted as the first.
Samara doesn't forget. And she isn't the only one. Safe underground in the city of New Canaan, she lives in a privileged world free from the Forgetting. Yet she wonders if she really is free, with the memories that plague her and secrets that surround her. Samara is determined to unearth the answers, even if she must escape to the old, cursed city of Canaan to find them.
Someone else is on their way to Canaan, too.... A spaceship from Earth is heading toward the planet, like a figment of the city's forgotten past. Beck is traveling with his parents, researchers tasked with finding the abandoned settlement effort. When Beck is stranded without communication, he will find more in Canaan than he was ever trained for. What will happen when worlds and memories, beliefs - and truths - collide?
This pulse-pounding, evocative companion to Cameron's highly acclaimed The Forgetting explores the truth and loss that lie within human memory and the bonds that hold us together.

Nowhere near as captivating as The Forgetting

This book felt like it was just a re-hashing of the forgetting. Sure, it's hundreds of years in the future and the main conflict is somewhat different. But it's the same basic premise - some people hold all the knowledge, and one person trying to change things wants to know more. It just wasn't as interesting as The Forgetting, and didn't feel original.

Also, I get why Emily Woo Zeller did the accent she did (as they remark in the book that Sam speaks haltingly/strangely a few times). However, listening to it for hours on end really grated on my nerves. She did this over-enunciated, whispery voice that was hard to listen to (and hear while driving at times). It certainly did not help my enjoyment of the book. The male narrator was perfect - no complaints there.

Not a sequel to The Forgetting--unfortunately

I remember being confused and bored for the first hour of The Forgetting, but ended up liking the book. Not so with this one. I was expecting a sequel but instead this is a "companion" book that takes place hundreds of years after The Forgetting.

Zoo Weller's audio narration is super annoying. She reads with what sounds like a made up accent that's choppy, quiet, and usually a bit monotone. The male narrator is fine.

So I was confused, bored, didn't like the female narrator but I pressed on. And fell asleep. I slept through about two hours total of the book and the last 4 hours I listened to on 1.5 speed. If I were reading instead of listening, I think I would have just skimmed much of the book and turned to the last page to read the ending.

Tedious is the word that comes to mind. And way too long--16 hours. I thought I was going to scream every time Sam "falls" (or plunges) into memory. But worse, I just didn't care about the characters.
