The X President
I really wanted to read this book.
I remember seeing mentions of it and thinking the premise sounded fantastic. I sought it out. I read it. I remember really enjoying it.
You know what?
I can't tell you a single thing about it. If I read the synopsis I'm sure it would come back to me, but failing that, my mind draws a blank.
Similarly, I came across a novel by Hugh Laurie many years ago, well before House MD, called The Gun Seller. I thought it looked entertaining. I read it. I enjoyed it. I remember, at the time, reading a review of it on Amazon that said it was good but that a few months later the reader could remember nothing about the novel.
Guess what. I remember nothing about that novel.
