Winner of the Canadian Authors Association Award for Best Novel Noel Burun has synesthesia and hypermnesia: he sees words in vibrant explosions of colors and shapes, which collide and commingle to form a memory so bitingly perfect that he can remember everything, from the 1001 stories of The Arabian Nights to the color of his bib as a toddler. But for all his mnemonic abilities, he is confronted every day with a reality that is as sad as it is ironic: his beloved mother, Stella, is stricken with Alzheimer's disease, her memory slowly slipping into the quicksands of oblivion. The Memory Artists follows Noel, helped by a motley cast of friends, on his quest to find a cure for his mother's affliction. The results are at the same time darkly funny, quirkily inventive, and very moving. Alternating between third-person narratives and the diaries of Noel and Stella, Jeffrey Moore weaves a story filled with fantastic characters and a touch of suspense that gets at the very heart of what it means to remember and forget, and that is a testament to the uplifting power of family and friendship.… (mais)

I didn't like this book at all to begin with: words like 'glabrous' and 'pullulating' were used and it felt pretentious. But I'm glad I stuck with it, because it got a whole lot better once Noel's memory-bereft mother, Stella Burun was introduced. I enjoyed the multiple viewpoints and the element of mystery about the attacks on Samira, JJ, and Norval. The denouement was satisfying, too. ( )

So different! I loved the uniqueness of the book. It is a novel, but designed to be a compilation of narrations and diary entries "written" by a neuropsychologist as if it were actually an academic work, complete with the narrator's endnotes (for once you actually need to read the endnotes!) Vorta, the doctor is a complete nut job, but you only really meet him through the endnotes and the character's discussion of him. Noel is a synesthesia and hypermnesia dealing with his mother's Alzheimer's. Noel, Samira, Norval, and JJ are all patients of Vorta and he sees it as some sort of experiment, them all coming to live in Noel's house. There's lots of discussion about poetry, chemistry, alzheimer's, synesthesia, and of course psychology in the book, minimal romance, plenty of cynicism and optimism, wit and chaos. If you're looking for something unusual, this is it! ( )

Steeds maar doorlezend, hopend dat er een echt verhaal gaat ontstaan; dat het ergens toe leidt. Ik heb het niet kunnen ontdekken. Heb het gevoel dat ik iets gemist heb; iets niet doorzie, maar wat? Of is er toch niets? Ben wat teleurgesteld. ( )

This is a quick and engaging book to read. The characters are fabulous; they are interesting and sympathetic. But the plot gets more and more confusing as the book goes on. By the end, I had no clue what was happening. In fact, I found the ending very disappointing. The writing style isn't well-developed, and in my opinion could have benefited from more vigorous editing. Too much of the plot in the book seems to fall back on literary cliches. The dialogue is stiff and hackneyed.

That being said, the characters were so interesting that I still enjoyed reading this book. And many of Moore's ideas are fascinating. Jeffrey Moore definitely shows potential, he just isn't there yet with The Memory Artists. ( )

A fabulous mystery by a new Canadian writer, a psychiatrist reflects on his past, an immoral experiement he conducted on young people with a specific and rare psychologocal disorder. Unput downable (sic). Looking for his next book. ( )
