At some point, right before my memory clicked off, the nightmare fairy must have paid the world a visit. Everything is dead and abandoned. It’s just… gone.
I don’t remember how the world got this way, but my husband and I were lucky to find the deserted theme park when we did.
I thought we were the only survivors, but a new man has come. Shannon. He scares me. He seems weirdly possessive of me.
He’s going to take me out of the park, away from my husband and the only safety I have. I’m terrified to know what’s out there.

To say I was excited to see Kitty Thomas had a new book coming out would be a understatement. I couldn’t wait to see what kind of mind game she was going to give us this time around. Judging by the lovely green cover and the title that had me scratching my head on how to pronounce I figured it was going to be a wild one.
Elodie what a trippy situation she found herself in. Waking up in a strange world not knowing who she, no past memory whatsoever! And to face a man who said she was her husband – I can only begin to imagine the confusion she was experiencing. Her husband, Trevor, how to you handle someone you love but doesn’t remember. Do you love the person they are now or do you live in the memory of what they once were. Shannon…where did you come from? Why do you feel possessive? Are you a secret Trevor is hiding? Are you part of Shannon’s past..the one she doesn’t remember?
You know when your at a funeral and everybody is very somber and you have that uncontrollable urge to laugh? Yeah, I had quite a few of those moments while reading Tabula Rasa. Not sure if they were intended or I’m just disturbed that way but yeah, I found humor in Elodie’s very unfortunate world. Everything twists and turns for Elodie. No memory, who is she to believe? I tried picturing myself in her shoes and I find for the most part I would have done exactly what she did. I say mostly. Remember this is Kitty Thomas we are talking about here. Expect everything to get tipped on its axis here because that is what happens to Elodie. Does she stay with Trevor or does Shannon take her away? Careful when you open Pandora’s box because what lays beyond the walls of the deserted theme park will blow you away.
On a personal note: Tabula Rasa. What kind of title is that? Really, I have been racking my brain trying to figure out what it was about much less how to pronounce it. So, for S&G I looked it up. Oh. I get it now. I’ll leave you with the definition.
ta·bu·la ra·sa noun – 1 : the mind in its hypothetical primary blank or empty state before receiving outside impressions. 2 : something existing in its original pristine state
