    1. A young woman is “born” in a Manchester car park. She has no idea who she is. But she has credit cards and ID in her pockets and knows that her name is Elizabeth. She establishes herself in a flat, gets a job – but is haunted by memories that link her identity to that of a boy in a town outside the city. She goes in search of him. It is a quest that will take her to a strangely deserted Cheshire dormitory town, where she sees something deeply disturbing; then to Hong Kong; and thence to th [...]


    2. The Forgetting was oddly confusing but in a very good way. Immersed in a world part fantasy, part sci-fi, the concept that propels the story has the reader engrossed in a world that pulls at the senses while it develops an unsettling uncertainly that leaves the reader perplexed at times.The prose was a bit erratic but with the short staccato sentences Astbury has created a definitive writing style engaging the reader to read at a quick, frantic pace and thus mimicking the tension surrounding the [...]


    3. What a strangely interesting story. I felt as if I was swept up and gazing in wonder at a Picasso masterpiece in front of me. Vibrant colors, vivid descriptions, the feeling of disjointed togetherness.

There's somethi [...]

It is told from the perspective of a woman starting at a moment of self-realization with no past recollections, perhaps after something traumatic. We don’t know, at that point all we know is this is the start of her current state of awareness. The narrative voice is so unique. Barreling forward with a pac [...]


    5. Forgetting, by Samuel Astbury, is a creative novel that falls into multiple genres: science fiction, fantasy and suspense. Its fast-paced, short prose and unique voice make it an intense read that, while at times perplexing, will also keep readers engaged. The first moments of the novel set the plot in motion, when the protagonist, a woman who is yet unnamed, wakes in car park. She has no memory of what has happened, why she is there, or even who she is. She does, however, have a very good sense [...]
