Just as you progressed from childhood to adolescence to adulthood, so did I. I suppose I had different experiences though.
What would you do if you lost everything that mattered in your life?

Forget the Name of the One You Love based on 0 ratings. 6 reviews.
This is an emotionally weighted reflection on the loss of identity caused by heart break. As evidenced by the conclusion of the story, the main focus is on the psychological level, so the descent into fragmentation feels like it distorts time. Whereas the story starts with the cohesive passage of time in the narrative, after he leaves the jungle all we get are images from scenes of his life, so it feels like he isn't real as he attempts to destroy his memory with drugs and alcohol. I would have liked to see more details about the therapy. When the protagonist claims that we shouldn't expect him to remember these details, I feel like that's just an excuse to not go deeper. But though the novella fails to go all the way, I think it is an uplifting story in the end.
This is a fantastic piece of literature and I can't wait to read more from this fantastic bright and captivating author. Highly recommend this to everyone!
I started this novel on Friday and didn't put it down until it was over...yeah I lost some serious sleep over it! Valentine does an exceptional job drawing her readers into the world of his characters. I felt like I knew each and every one of them by the time I was finished with Forget the Name of the One You Love ...and let me tell you I was really sad when it was over!!! I can definitly see a sequel in the making...please give us a sequel!!!!!
sure it does. Beginning is in the jungle middle is after he comes back and the end is when he goes through therapy. it's clearly about dealing with a lost love.
This book honestly has no point. There is no middle or end. Most of it doesnt make any sense. Half the time it talks about drugs and alcohol and some one night stands. This book has no point to it at all.
such bard writing. the book literally doesn't make sense. the author should literally pay you to read it.
