Read from June 05 to 06, 2014 as part of the June reading Challenge.
Synopsis: Without a past, how can we possibly have a future? Darkness. The black, shapeless void that refuses the presence of light. The kind of darkness where only the dead dare to explore, and the living fear to gaze upon. With no memory of my past, I wake up inside a pizzeria with nothing but a wadded up piece of paper in my pocket. I will have to rely heavily on my instincts in order to survive. I have no idea who I am. I don’t know who to trust. Faded images briefly flash through my mind, but they make no sense. Are they memories from a past I have somehow forgotten? Are they clues to my identity? Only time will tell.

Unknown is a quick story that takes us through a couple of days in the life of our protagonist. We don’t know his name, nor where he came from, but then, neither does he.
Imagine what it would be like to wake up somewhere and know nothing… Not who you are, what you like, what you do for a living, if you have a partner? Imagine still, that in the midst of this personal horror, that someone is trying to kill you. That they’re determined to shoot you and you don’t know why.I enjoyed this mysterious thriller, it highlighted the scariness and creepiness of amnesia and the extent we rely on our memories to get by in everyday life.
One thing I noticed:
25% how could mom hold a purse he bought her for Xmas if she died while giving birth to him?
