Renee @It’sBookTalk began this Throwback Thursday meme as a way to share some of our old favorites as well as sharing books that we’re FINALLY getting around to reading that were published over a year ago. I’ve wanted to join this meme for a long time and I thought it would be a great idea because it forces me to read books from the TBR and not only new releases. And, of course, I can also include some old favorites!
What do you do when you don’t know who you are… Jane has lost her memory. …Where you are… Jane is found walking the streets wearing a blood-stained dress with $10,000 in the pocket. …What you’ve done? Unable to get answers from her husband, Jane is forced to seek the truth about her accident on her own. But the truth doesn’t always set you free… When you can’t trust yourself, who can you trust?
I read See Jane Run when I was fourteen years old and I was so shocked that today I still can remember everything about this novel. I’ve read other Joy Fielding books and enjoyed most of them, but as it usually happens, the more books you read by an author, the more you start predicting everything that’ll happen. This was my second book by Fielding and probably my favorite, although it left me quite uneasy, as it’s not a happy book by any means.
I read it in about two days and I can even tell you where I was while I was reading it (summer vacations in Madrid). I remember telling my aunt all about the plot and how addicted I was. I even told her about the twist and the ending and all the characters and their motivations.
So yes, I really loved this book when I was in my teens. Would I love it now? Probably not as much. But nostalgia is undeniable powerful and I think I’ll remember this book forever.
