Customer Reviews

"What Was Lost" by debut author Jean Levy is the ideal psychological mystery for fans of SJ Watson and Paula Hawkins and I for one thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I was instantly intrigued by the storyline - Children's writer Sarah Blake is found unconscious, bloodied and frozen on a beach miles from home. However, she has also lost her memory and can only recall fragments of memories prior to being a young child. The police are also interested into how she ended up there and with specialists trying to help her retrieve her memory about what happened prior to being found........ are things best left forgotten?? Some of the neuroscience terminology did pass me by a little but it's obvious the author has intelligently used her own knowledge and a tonne of research in the story to create a professionally written, unsettling psychological story. Using a possible frighteningly realistic scenario and an unreliable narrator in Sarah, who can't recall whether her memories are real or not, we are treated to a fantastic thriller that had me hooked from the very beginning. I also liked that a lot of the setting of the story was based around an author and the publishing industry and along with interspersed chapters going back to Sarah's time before the 'incident', this made for a very entertaining and enjoyable read. Debut author Jane Levy is definitely an author to watch out for, her study of creative writing certainly shines through and for a first time novel this really is a cracking book. Confronting mental health issues, memory loss and PTSD and with a storyline that keeps you guessing till the very last line this will appeal to many readers young and old. Exceedingly well written, I'd have no hesitation in recommending this intriguing and compelling thriller. Perhaps a little too much detail on the medical side for me (though not necessarily a bad thing) it didn't however effect my overall enjoyment of this absorbing story and I would love to read more by this very capable author again in the future. 4.5 stars.
