    2. Ladies and Gentlemen, let me present you a story where protagonist fails his mission epically by telling a girl secret information he was trusted with and trained professionally not to divulge after first 10 minutes of their acquaintance with the aforementioned girl.<>But it's against the rules to tell you this stuff, so don't say anything in fron of Jill, okay? You'll get me in trouble.Pratogonist: But but she has pretty eyes and her hair is so wiiild.Me: Okay guys, here's what happened.I [...]

    3. Realllly good. Much like the first one, I was pretty confused at the beginning (and on and off throughout). I like learning about this really insane world and would totally read more books in this companion series. I think Sam and Beck were interesting main characters. I liked that the story felt similar enough to the first book to tie them together but definitely different enough to learn more about Canaan.

    4. I enjoyed this companion to THE FORGETTING so much! It was fascinating to get another look at this world from a new perspective (hundreds of years after Nadia and Gray's time). Being one of the Knowing like Samara would be a fascinating and also terrifying experience, I think. And Beckett's experiences discovering an entirely new planet are also well explored. I didn't like the Jillian aspect to this story and the way it affected the romance, but I agree that once Beckett saw Samara that was it [...]

    5. I thought The Forgetting was a great original dystopian story, but wow, The Knowing was even better!! This companion book actually takes place in the same world but with a new cast of characters. I can't go into too much detail about who they are without giving away spoilers.I can say that in The Knowing, Earth sends a ship to Canaan to see what happened to the original lost colonists. Beckett is the young man from earth who is exploring when he comes across Samara, one of the Knowing.From there [...]

    6. I have been so excited to read this book for ages now. Because I loved The Forgetting so much. I'm still a bit sad that this wasn't a direct sequel, aw. Instead it was a companion book, set around four hundred years in the future. I had hoped to love this just as much as I loved the first one. But oh, I did not. And I feel so sad.Don't know where to begin. There were parts of this book that I enjoyed a lot. I loved how it was set in the same place as book one. With a lot of the same things, even [...]

    7. This review and many more can be found on my blog: Feed Your Fiction AddictionOh. My. Goodness. Do I love these books! If you haven’t read my gushing review of The Forgetting, you should go read it. And then come back here and find out why this second book was just as good. The Knowing is a companion to the first book and takes place a few hundred years in the future—so, by this point, Nadia and Gray’s story is ancient history. (If you go in expecting to see more of them, you’ll be disap [...]

    8. 4.5 Stars! Review and current giveaway (ends 10/22/17): Quite the Novel IdeaReviewWell, that was awesome! I LOVED The Forgetting and I LOVED The Knowing! Oh, you want details, do you? Okay, okay, here we go:The Knowing starts almost 400 years after the ending of The Forgetting. I don’t want to spoil the first book for you, so read my review if you want to know more about it. Anyway, the Knowing are descendants of the city of Canaan that live underground and do not forget. Ever. It’s amazing, [...]

    9. I loved The Forgetting. Like, FIVE STAR loved it. It was so unique and Sharon Cameron is kind of brilliant and it was just so good. So, my expectations for the companion novel were pretty high. Where The Forgetting focused on a civilization that forgot who they were every 12 years, The Knowing takes place centuries later and features a people who cannot forget. They even remember being in the womb. It was quite the opposite story in a lot of waysbut also kind of not. I liked the parallels and [...]

    10. Actual rating: 3.7/5 Stars Okay, let me just start off by saying how glad I am that Beckette isn’t as dumb as he looks (or sounds); he actually has a some level of common sense (yay!!) don’t get me wrong, I like him but I just expected more from a main character.I was disappointed in this book, or maybe it’s just that I was expecting a lot more because of the first book. I feel like the characters Sam and Beck were very similar to Nadia and Gray (coincidence, I don’t think so).Other wise [...]

    11. An interesting take on memory and its implications on culture and history. If you love dystopia/sci-fi, this is for you!

    12. 379 years ago, the people of Canaan left their white city to build New Canaan and get away from the Forgetting. But though Samara and the rest of the Knowing cannot forget anything at all, most of their history is lost, or hidden from them. She is convinced that in Canaan there is a way to Forget, so that she and others don't have to live with the memories that could drive them insane.Beckett is also looking for Canaan, but he has come all the way from Earth, travelling with his crew mates for m [...]

    13. Hundreds of years ago, a select group—the brightest, some would say “the best”—humans exited Earth to populate a new planet in pursuit of a better life, for the people and even their habitat, this time. Regression would be the new progression, technology would be eliminated, to a certain extent, of course and mankind and mother nature would blissfully coexist. The socio-economic experiment was a success, but eventually the folks of the Canaan Project stopped responding to their counterpa [...]

    14. I can’t believe it's over! I loved The Forgetting and was ecstatic when I discovered Sharon Cameron would be writing a companion novel! Both books ended in similar fashion with me trying to hold back my tears. When I attended BookCon this year, I snagged a ticket to an I Read YA signing. Sharon Cameron was one of the authors, signing ARCs of The Knowing for attendees. When I gushed to her that I loved The Forgetting and was beyond excited for this book she let out a little secret that these bo [...]

    15. DNF at page 167. This one stung because I LOVED "The Forgetting". The narrative was fantastic, the characters were people you wanted to root for, and the battle was something you got emotionally connected to. This? Oh HELL TO THE NO. I tried epically hard to like it, but I couldn't - the concept of being 400 years later was great, but execution is terrible.Samara as a character is sort of a terrible narrator and as much as I understand her pain of "knowing" (I think? it's not explained well), yo [...]

    16. More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress/It took awhile for me to get into the Knowing - I had a hard time figuring out where it fit into the timeline and I felt like I had forgotten some key point in the ending to The Forgetting. Eventually, I learned this takes place 400 years in the future and so we won't have the culture or the protagonists from the first book. Instead we have a companion book that takes the theme of the first book and flips them around completely. It's [...]

    17. This is definitely more of a 4.5 stars kind of read.I loved The Forgetting. It was on of my favorite books of 2015. Therefore I was super excited when I heard it was going to have a companion novel where we find out what happens after the events of the first novel. And it was just as interesting a science fiction novel.I want to start by talking about the world. Because I really loved the world in The Forgetting and I liked it even more here. Now that we know that this is a science fiction serie [...]

    18. Caitlin Welsh1/22/18Pd. 4/6Theft of Memory “Always I thought it would be my Knowing that killed me, when actually, it's going to be this rope.” Wrote Sharon Cameron in her mysterious adventure romance, The Knowing. This book is based in a fantastical world set in the future on a far away planet. It consists of a young teenage girl named Samara who is Knowing, a superior, one who remembers. They remember love, hate, and their first drawn breath, and they replay their memories in their mind, [...]

    19. The Knowing by Sharon Cameron *3.5 stars * 01/19/2018.I am fascinated with memories. For a while, like I mentioned on The Forgetting review, I'm looking for a book with a character with unforgettable memory. Forgetting gave me the opposite, people forgot everything all at once every 6 years. But it was very interesting to see how Nadia and Gray searched for a way to Not forget. When I saw the synopsis of The Knowing, I thought I would finally read the book I wanted about people with unforgettabl [...]

    20. I really enjoyed this companion sequel to The Forgetting; taking place some time after the events of The Forgetting, a new crazy group has taken over and deluded themselves into thinking they're doing what's right (of course), whatever means necessary. Earthlings have also arrived on the planet and two teen explorers (Beck and Jill) stumble across the ruins of the first colony, and run into Samara. Samara and Beck (with Jill's reluctance) work together to figure each other out and how to save Sa [...]

    21. UggghhhhhhWhat makes the disappointment of this sequel so much more painful is how very much I loved "The Forgetting." I've read it twice now and enjoyed it just as much the second go-round as I did the first time time. So I was eagerly anticipating this book.This story takes place about 400 years in the future from the first book and I was frustrated by how much the characters didn't know about the world they were in and how much *I* didn't know, despite having "lived through" (so to speak) the [...]

    22. Sam remembers everything, including her days when she was in the womb of her mother and she is not the only one who does that. They are called knowing. The are ruled by council but Sam knows something that she wasn't supposed to know. She knows that the council is lying and hiding something and exploring that is what happens through the book. This book is not made for all the audience because the phasing is slowing. They show the society as a whole, their troubles, the truth of how people can be [...]

    23. I enjoyed this book! It was a good companion to The Forgetting and answered pretty much all of the questions raised at the end of that one. It was interesting to see that everything that happened at the end of that book didn't cause things in their society to be just automatically happy ending, it really transformed into a whole new society with its own problems. I find the storytelling is slow at some parts, and the action didn't really pick up until the second half. But I like the world create [...]

    24. I enjoyed this one, but I think I liked the forgetting better. Nadiya and Gray were just the better couple for me. I mean, I liked Sam and Beck but I didn't get all the feels from their relationship. And the book had kind of an Avatar/Dances with Wolves feel to it. Still, I really enjoyed reading more about what happened after Nadiya and overall liked the book. The audio narrators were really good as well!

    25. I enjoyed this book, I liked having all the answers that I wanted at the end of the forgetting. I do think it dragged a little at some parts and was hard to keep my attention. From the ending I’m wondering if she is gonna write a third 🤔

    26. 3.75 Stars. This could have been trimmed down a bit, and some of the jargon was difficult to figure out, but I did really love the blend of cultures - the high-tech with the technology-absent - as well as the lovely writing.

    27. Cameron, Sharon The Knowing (The Forgetting #2), 448 pages. , 2017. $19. Language: G; Mature Content: PG (lots of kissing); Violence: PG (some fighting).Since her brother died, Samara has been discontented with her life as one of the Knowing. With the help of her Outsider maid, Samara has been venturing outside. But the day comes when she realizes that someone knows about her adventures and her life is now in danger. Beckett has travelled across the universe with she scientist parents and a larg [...]

    28. Thanks to Edelweiss and the publisher for access to this title.Samara is one of the privileged, one who never forgets. There is no longer a need for archives or record keeping as citizens of New Canaan never forget anything, and can learn just about anything from visual instructions. Once seen, it is forever embedded in their memory. Unfortunately, along with the special abilities a perfect memory brings, there are also problems: when you can't forget things, it also leads to keeping bad memorie [...]
