"When a man is found on a British beach, drifting in and out of consciousness, with no identification and unable to speak, interest in him is sparked immediately. From the hospital staff who find themselves inexplicably drawn to him, to international medical experts who are baffled by him, to the national press who call him Mr. Nobody, everyone wants answers. Who is this man? And what happened to him? Some memories are best forgotten. Neuropsychiatrist Dr. Emma Lewis is asked to assess the patient in a small town deep in the English countryside. This is her field of expertise, this is the chance she's been waiting for, and this case could make her name known across the world. But therein lies the danger. Emma left this same town fourteen years ago and has taken great pains to cover all traces of her past since then. Places aren't haunted . . . people are. But now something--or someone--is calling her back. And the more time she spends with her patient, the more alarmed she becomes that he knows the one thing about her that nobody is supposed to know"--… (mais)

Honestly I don’t have a lot to say here. I loved the first book by Catherine Steadman, but I barely liked Mr. Nobody. The beginning started off well enough, but it quickly went downhill from there and never picked up for me again.
Expecting much more from this author, I was disappointed, but I will give her next book a shot. There’s only so much suspension of belief one can do and Mr. Nobody didn’t give me any reason whatsoever to do so. I’m definitely not a fan of giving reviews that aren’t great but in this case I think it would be a disservice to both the readers and the author to not be honest here. As always, there are differing opinions and I know this worked for some people, which I’m thrilled about, but it just didn’t work for me. ( )

A book that gets me intrigued about a true event or condition is my kind of book. I closed Steadman's book and went to Psychology Today to read about this baffling condition called Fugue. Then my husband and friends are drawn in and a few friends pick up the book as well.

I enjoyed the book and liked Emma. The home in the woods away from her childhood trauma set the tone. Although, I'd like to think the suspenseful sprinkling of Emma's past could have been revealed a bit better than the ongoing snippets of childhood trauma.

There is enough info., here about fugue that I can say Steadman did well. She brought an intriguing condition center of her story line leaving me saying. "that was really good, now let me look up fugue"!. ( )

More like 3.5. Definitely did not enjoy as much as Something in the Water. ( )

When a man is found on a British beach, drifting in and out of consciousness, with no identification and unable to speak, interest in him is sparked immediately. Neuropsychiatrist Dr. Emma Lewis is asked to assess the patient in a small town deep in the English countryside. This is her field of expertise, this is the chance she's been waiting for, and this case could make her name known across the world. But therein lies the danger. Emma left this same town fourteen years ago and has taken great pains to cover all traces of her past since then. The more time she spends with her patient, the more alarmed she becomes that he knows the one thing about her that nobody is supposed to know.

This was an interesting psychological thriller about a man who couldn’t remember much. The first half of the story was a bit slow but the second half moved at a good pace with a number of unexpected things happening. Despite some of Emma’s questionable decisions, it kept me interested and guessing. There were some interesting psychological insights sprinkled throughout, which I liked. The plot was somewhat unique and, even though it’s pretty unlikely something like this would happen, I thought it was easy to go along with and enjoy it. ( )

That's the thing about habits. They're comforting. They're hard to kick.
People don't want truth from us doctors, not really; they may think they do but they don't. People want doctors to be like priests. They want hope delivered with authority.
Isn't it funny how you can successfully not think about something for months or even years, you can almost forget, almost, and then one simple sentence or word can bring it all back with a sudden sickening immediacy?
The music swelled and then the fireworks display began.
The first crack and flash of pure white light shot straight up into the chilly winter air; an explosion of diamond dust.
And then color after color, faster and brighter and louder until the whole sky was lit with pulsing, flashing, magic. And then, as swiftly as it started, it was gone.
The night sky empty but for the afterimage on our eyes and the ghost of smoke in the wind.
If she could only see herself through my eyes. But that's my job, isn't it, to shine a light back on her.
