Forest of Memory is a forgettable novella dealing with real memory vs. technology assisted memory and how we remember events. It was just an alright read that I wouldn’t recommend to others. The novella fails to deliver the ending in a way that makes the themes powerful. Katya is a collector and reseller of antiques in the future. In the future, antiques are anything that wasn’t created by a 3D printer. During one of her jobs, she loses her connection to the internet that is always on in her brain and gets kidnapped. Her kidnapper is shooting deer in the woods but doesn’t want anyone to know about it. This is the first time that Katya has to rely on her actual memory instead of the constant recording that she usually could use when the internet is available. For a novella that is so concerned with memory, it doesn’t leave much in the reader’s memory when finished.
