Review of “The Weight of Memory” by Shawn Smucker

This is the third book I have read by Shawn Smucker. Unlike the other ones, I do not feel as if I am coming into the middle of a story. However, I would have been a little lost had I not read what the book was about first. For reasons unknown to me, I feel like this book is reading slower for me than other books. I am thinking that one reason may be that it is written in first person. Also, every once and awhile the story goes back to the past without much warning. I know there is a lot of symbolism in this book but for some reason it’s going over my head. All that being said, it is still an intriguing book and quite puzzling enough to where I’m wondering what will happen. If you like thought provoking novels, then you will like this story.
