This is a quick read and the writing keeps the mystery moving along at a proper clip. I read the whole thing in a plane ride so at the very least it kept me turning pages. But -- this novel is bad, and the problem is that the plot is bad.

The plotline is straight out of a soap opera with amnesia and infidelity and dramatic reveals. Nothing in the plot makes sense. We start out with something so intriguing -- a man visits his parents' graves only to see his own grave beside theirs -- but the way we get there through the mystery is just nonsense. Nothing about Justin's childhood and reaction to his memories makes sense. The two families is possible but there is quite literally no way that he would come out of this identifying with the first family. It just doesn't make sense and the author kind of sweeps this aside as though it doesn't matter.

Also, some of the backstory was highly cliched. The father finding out about a question of paternity through the son's blood test? YAWN. And the tacked-on final chapter accomplished nothing other than to conk you on the head with a plot point so obvious it's insulting.

Not recommended. ( )

Man this book wasn't what I thougth it was going to be. And I kept expecting it to get happier as I got closer to the end but it didn't. This story was really good! ( )

This is a debut novel with an intriguing premise. It is rife with secrets that lead a grown man to his own grave with a tombstone stating that he was four years old when he died. It is told in chapters alternating between the relationship his parents had and his own life with his wife and daughter. As the truth behind the lies surfaces, so do his memories of his earliest years. The ending is the revelation of the consummate secret. This is a captivating book from an author whose next book I look forward to reading. ( )

Justin Fisher has a lovely wife, a young son, and a successful career as a manager of a luxury hotel, but he’s troubled by the hole in his life left by his absent family. Hardly sure anymore why they became estranged in the first place, Justin gathers the courage to reconnect, only to find that his parents have passed away. And a visit to the cemetery brings the greatest shock of all—next to the graves of his father and mother sits a smaller tombstone for a three-year-old boy: a boy named Justin Fisher. A story of betrayal and forgiveness, as well as one man’s search into a forgotten past, The Language of Secrets is a deeply emotional novel from a fresh and exciting new voice. Loved the book and could not put it down! ( )

I really enjoyed this book and especially liked the twist ending. The story kept me reading an I had difficulty putting it down. The story was not as well told as some other authors may have done, but I did like how it moved between the past and the present time periods. ( )
