The Forgetting Room (w/spoiler)Posted: 2006/10/22
Bantock, Nick. The Forgetting Room. New York: HarperCollins Publishers, Inc. 1997.
I have always been a fan of Nick Bantock’s work. I fell in love with Griffin and Sabine and reread the trilogy a thousand times over the years. When I found out Bantock had more to offer I jumped on the chance to read them all. I just finished The Forgetting Room. Part fiction, part art and all mystery, The Forgetting Roomis one man’s journey to Spain. It’s his nine day journal about unraveling mysteries surrounding his grandfather and the life he led. In true Bantock fashion there are glorious pages of artwork and of course, voyeuristic letters to unfold.
Spoiler: Armon doesn’t completely solve the mystery. There is romance is the air.
