ARIA: Left Luggage

ARIA: Left Luggage - Geoff Nelder Favourite location / setting … When Ryder observes the Marimar (jet) and he is so awestruck that he almost forgets the recent incidences. Ryder was my favourite throughout the book. He always puts others ahead of himself. And while some may think it is stupid, it struck me as compassionate. Given that they were dealing with something so dangerous, he made it a point to have a "first one in, last one out" attitude.
Favourite scene …. Reading this book got many of us thinking about what it would be like to not remember things that had happened so my favourite scene is when Teresa explains what ARIA actually is and how people are actually diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Of all the diseases aliens are able to release on humans, I wonder why the author picked memory loss? Has he dealt with something similar in his own life, which then inspired the foundation of this story?
Favourite quote … "But unless you talk to us, we’ve little idea about how you feel.” - This applies to real-life as well. There were many part of this book, although it revolves around science fiction elements, that had a realistic feel.

Disclosure - As a Quality Reads Book Club member, I received a free copy of this book from the author via Orangeberry Book Tours in exchange for my honest review.
