The Book of MirrorsThe Book of Mirrors by E.O. Chirovici

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Do you trust other people’s memories? Do you trust your own? Should you? Princeton, 1987: renowned psychologist Professor Joseph Weider is brutally murdered. New York, twenty-five years later: literary agent Peter Katz receives a manuscript. Or is it a confession? Today: unearth the secrets of The Book of Mirrors and discover why your memory is the most dangerous weapon of all.
This book had an interesting premise, a tale told from three different viewpoints, each casting a little more light on the question of who murdered Professor Weider. It is a well-constructed psychological mystery which aims to highlight the difference in how witnesses remember things. But this is nothing new, we all know that if 10 people witness an event, you’ll get 10 different stories, each convinced they are right. Having said that, it is an enjoyable read. There has been an enormous amount of hype about this book. It was a good read, but a great one? Not for me. There are better books out there more deserving of the ‘great’ description. 3 stars.
