    One thought on “The Persistence of Memory”

    1. **WOAH, now FREE at US! 2/19/16**A new, awesome Jordan Castillo Price series has arrived!!<--- (Were sweeter words ever spoken?)I adore JCP. Her Psycop series is a huge favorite of mine, and I've liked each of her stand-alones that I've read, so I had a pretty good feeling going into this one. I was not disappointed. JCP keeps delivering on these interesting, out of the box concepts in M/M, and she kills it every time. Though this book was a little Total Recall meets Eternal Sunshine of the [...]

    2. Cross-posted at Outlaw Reviews and at Shelf Inflicted45-year-old Daniel Schroeder and his father, Big Dan, own Adventuretech, a business that specializes in implanting fabricated memories based on a client’s needs. While the memories are temporary, the feelings of confidence, happiness, or inner peace that result are lasting. Daniel developed Life is Awesome, a mnem intended to make his business rich. Instead, the mnem has altered his father’s past, seemingly permanently. And just who is tha [...]

    3. Written December 29, 20153.8 Stars - Tricky to understand at first but addictive interesting - part one of three and this will be greatBook #1The Persistence of Memory didn't feel like a complete ended novel, so my rating may not be really accurate until all three Mnevermind parts are read. So far intriguing good. I don't know if this is to be called paranormal, a bit Sci Fi, or just 201x M/M contemporary with a nowaday (quite gray, non glamorous and ordinary) North American world with some char [...]

    4. Re-read May 2017Wow, the audio of this is amazing! This narrator really rocks!---------------------------------I loved this. Quite surprising since this book isn't heavy on the romance at all (at first).But the whole mnemography thing was just so intriguing!I loved it every time Daniel was questioning whether something was real or not.Mnemes are a sort of daydreams, where people can have a good time in a sort of virtual reality kind of environment and create a happy feeling. Not a memory, since [...]

    5. This is a strong start to what promises to be a haunting new series set in an alternate-universe Madison, Wisconsin, where the intersection of neurology and computer coding form the mind-bending field of mnemography. (Mnemography is a programmed fantasy sent via computer to a customer's mind, enabling him to inhabit a mnem experience that isn't confused with a real memory.) First-person narrator Daniel is forty-five. (Thank God for sexy older heroes in m/m fiction!) He is consumed with guilt and [...]

    6. 2,5 stars rounded up to 3 starsI understand now why Jordan Castillo Price is so popular. And even if I had a hard time with this book, the writing doesn't belong to my issues.I'd like to read something less focused on the technical aspect. Where I have more fiction and less of manuals. This book was simply mnemoverloaded. I finished it totally exhausted, and I know for sure, I'm not going to read more of this series. There were too many technical details that spoiled a fluent pace of the story f [...]

    7. 3.5I discovered Jordan Castillo Price's creative writing through her PsyCop series and have been curious on reading of her stuff even since. In 'The Persistence of Memory', Daniel operates a run-down false memory stimulator facility called Adventuretech. Daniel runs into a mysterious man while running some of the mnem's, and the two eventually figure out what is real and what isn't between them. Kind-of. Meanwhile Daniel has to deal with breaking bad news to his father every day because his life [...]

    8. This review sucks because I'm too sick to write a good one. This was freaky-deaky and I don't think it was just the Sudafed and Benadryl I've been sucking down. The whole is this reality? when you're medicated makes for tricky reading. That said, totally solid read, not really a romance, but definitely entertaining. Continuing on with the series.

    9. Definitely on with the next one. After a confusing part JCP did not leave me floudering in the dark, things are way more clearer now, I do need to continue with the story as I was to see, I want to know.Present rating after reading only the first part of the trilogy 3.5 stars - subject to change later.Read with Ingela.

    10. I chose this after being blown away by and it didn't disappoint. I found it to be utterly unique, thoughtful, surreal and heartbreaking. Poor Daniel is so defeated and sad I can't wait to see how his relationship with mysterious Elijah will change this. Book two cannot come fast enough!

    11. Fabulous. Lovely premise, great atmosphere - I am a sucker for shabby-junk sci-fi - and the author is ruthless in repeatedly pulling the rug from under the narrator's feet. Off to get the next one. Highly recommended

    12. Compelling writing, fascinating and vividly-drawn world.Daniel's attraction to and interactions with Elijah make me uncomfortable. It feels like Daniel's not treating Elijah like an actual person. It's difficult to rate a book when it cuts off so abruptly; I'm looking forward to book 2

    13. Excellent alternate reality m/m romance about a mneomographer who's lost his confidence after accidentally changing his dad's reality permanently. And then he runs into something inexplicable during an mneming session Totally sucked into this, and impatiently waiting for the next segment. *taps fingers*

    14. I had to sleep on this one before rating and reviewing. I was torn between a 4 and a 5, but I just can’t get this book out of my head. JCP is a sci-fi master as far as I’m concerned. The world building and level of detail is amazing. The concept of mnemography is very cool. Throw in Daniel, Big Dan, Larry and Elijah and you have a 5-star read. I can’t wait to start the next book.

    15. First read: November 2014Reread: February 2015Is it possible JC Price is getting even better! She's already my most favourite m/m writer UF/sci-fi/horror/ whatever else she decides to write author! Our character Daniel is in the business of selling fake short-term memories, or mnems. He's stopped creating his own memories since the last one he created stayed with his father permanently. Daniel is a loner and not really ready for a relationship. Yet when he meets a strange man in his clients' mne [...]

    16. Once again, JCP has given us a wonderful main character in a believable setting with just enough near or alternate future contextual background to be complete but not overdone. And as always, I can't wait for the next installment. The idea of a main character who is capable of two different types of interaction in two different settings sets up a wonderful tension here. The way the narrator faces the difficult task every morning of reminding his father that the man has been divorced from his mot [...]

    17. This new series is set in an alternate reality Madison, WI. It focuses on families and work and normal day-to-day stuffwith a dreamy twist. Daniel Schroeder is in the business of implanting recreational memories, and between guiding his clients and testing out his own equipment, his reality isn't always what it seems.Goes on sale 5/4/12

    18. I have to admit that there were several parts of this book when I had absolutely no idea what was going on. Still liked it though!

    19. This was wonderful, although i will admit I found it difficult to get into in the beginning. but when i did, i was totally in!

    20. I’m writing this after I’ve read the Mnevermind trilogy, and this one is my favorite of the three.I liked Daniel from the start - he is troubled and stuck in one place because of an accident that happened to his father - Big Dan. To love your job so much, to be confident that you are great at it, and then to end up hurting the person you love the most by doing that same job – how does one recover from this? And it’s not just guilt that’s crushing him - it’s his and his father’s dre [...]

    21. I liked this one, found it intriguing and different, much like the Psycop series. Unfortunately, it also lacks a little emotional depth, and the romance is somewhat off-putting. This is a trilogy, and I've read all threee conclusion is rather disappointing, especially considering it leaves loose ends from the second. Price's imagination is top-notch, and she riddled this trilogy with words I love (packet, pixel, stacking, to name a few), so my mental voice was happy as a pig in shit. But the lac [...]

    22. Jordan Castillo Price has done it again. It is no secret I am a huge fan of her Psycop series, my fanship is such that I am purposely holding back from reading the last published book in that series, GhosTV, until the next in the series is published. I am that fearful of being without a Jordan Castillo Price book in my favorite series. Well, I now have a new series of hers to follow. The Persistence of Memory, is a richly written story told from the first person point of view of the main charact [...]

    23. BR with Susan, Bucletina & ElsbethIf there's something that I don't think anyone can dispute, is that JCP writes wonderful stories taking the most unusual topics as part of her main plot, and incorporates brilliant and completely original characters that end up together in relationships that are kind of "out of the box". None of her characters are ever dull, boring, flat, uninteresting, paper-thin. EVER. There is always so much more to them than what is seen on the surface, and she explores [...]

    24. This is a cool story. It's science fiction. People now go in to undergo these lifelike dreams. It's common place and after awhile they fade. Some trippy things happen. It's interesting and definitely not the end of the story arc. I'll continue for sure.

    25. 4.5 starsReview Summary: This book felt like a fantastic first date that ended abruptly, full of excitement and promise that leaves you edgy and eager for the second date, when you’ll finally start to really get to know this intriguing person (or story, as the case may be).Review: This was a fascinating adventure and exploration of mind and memory, with heroes outside the “norm” for m/m. I also loved that they were both something other than the classic, youthful perfection of the typical m [...]

    26. How does she come up with this stuff?!? You would think all the technical talk would be boring, but as someone who is frequently guilty of skimming, I can honestly say I read every line with wrapped enjoyment. It's such an interesting concept, that people pay for "experiences" that they don't even remember, but that their brain retains and therefor leaves them feeling better, more confident, sexier, etc. I loved how he was constantly checking his hand for the mnevermind mark to make sure what wa [...]

    27. Mnevermind: The Persistence of Memory is the first in a new series (a trilogy, I think?), and is an engrossing character-driven story. I read it in one long go, shifting from the chair to the bath to the bed--I just couldn't put it down until I figured out what happened next.Set in an alternative-universe Madison, WI, the story's main character and narrator is Daniel Shroeder. Mid-40's, currently single Daniel has been focusing over the last year on running his father's memory palace, a place wh [...]
