The Book of Memory Gaps by Cecilia Ruiz | Review

Melancholy. Memory Disorders. Beautiful illustrations. Darkly humorous.

This short book will have you re-reading sentences and empathizing with the characters. This book introduces characters with memory disorders and offers a sentence or two describing each. It may be short in textual content, however, it is large in emotional punch. The illustrations, also created by Ruiz, emphasize the tone with a palette of cool colors and soft ink drawings.

Ruiz keeps with a theme of sadness and loneliness that many readers can relate to, which is what makes this 60-page book worth reading.

I received an ARC of this novel from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
