Book Review – “Losing Clementine” by Ashley Ream


Losing ClementineLosing Clementine by Ashley Ream
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’m giving this book four stars even though it pissed me off. For the first half of the book I didn’t really like Clementine, the main character, which made it hard to care about her. What gives the novel four stars is the compelling way it’s written.

Ms. Ream is an extremely talented storyteller. She pulled me through the tale until I couldn’t put it down. Until I began to feel angry because in the end, I was forced to care about a woman determined to end her life. I was mad at Clementine. The novel made me feel, which for me is the greatest compliment anyone can give to a writer.

Losing Clementine is not a lighthearted read. It’s a powerful one, about relationships and how deeply they can affect everything, right down to personality.

There's a writer in here, clawing her way out.

  1. I always feel funny about awful protagonists. It really is a dredge to continue when you know they do have a good side but damn – reading about their crappy is so off-putting.
    But since you rated it so highly anyway, I’ll give it a try 🙂


    • I’ve read a few other reviews since I wrote mine, and what annoyed me about the main character, other people called “quirkiness.” So who knows – you might like her.
      Hope you find it as worthwhile as I did. 🙂
