Never Never by Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher

Updated on March 1, 2015

Colleen Hoover is a good writer. I became a fan ever since I read Hopeless in 2012. To date, I have read all her published books. She never fails to surprise me with her stories. Each and every book is unique. When I found out about Never Never, I didn’t hesitate to grab a copy and read it. I knew I was up for a different type of writing and storyline since the book is a collaboration of Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher.

Never Never
Never Never

“Best friends since they could walk.

In love since the age of fourteen.

Complete strangers since this morning.

He'll do anything to remember.

She'll do anything to forget.”

 

Never Never Synopsis

Losing ones memory is nightmarish. It is doubly frightening when you lose your memory at some point in the course of the day. You cannot remember your name, face, family, friends, and recollection of the moment before.

Charlie Wynwood looses her memory during lunch time at school. It seems she was walking the school corridors with her memory intact and in a split second looses it. Given her predicament, she is forced to tag along with someone whom she assumes as her friend. They end up in the cafeteria and sat down with a couple of people and Silas, her boyfriend it seems. Going through the motions, she survives lunch but with a lot of questions unanswered. Unbeknownst, Silas Nash is in the same predicament but he manages to act nonchalant despite his lack of memory.

When Charlie and Silas end up in the same class, they both discover their shared dilemma. Decisively, they combine their efforts to find answers to the many questions and find solutions that will bring back their lost memories. Finding bits and pieces of the life they lived only add confusion to their state. But it allows them to look into their past lives in a new perspective. What were they to each other? Why did they make unwise decisions? How did they end up without a memory? How do they get it back?

Never Never Review

The setting is all too familiar. The story is set in high school where students are divided according to status. Popular and guy is together with a common girl and everybody else seems interested in their drama. The romance between the two seems like a “you and me against the world” type. Families tear them apart, siblings keep them stable and grounded, and friends sustain their relationship. Readers are quite acquainted with this setting. We probably read it in some books, watch it in movies, or experience it in real life. This is a wise setup by Hoover and Fisher because the readers can easily get attached to the story and the characters.

The main characters are typical high school students. They seem tough and without trouble. Silas is rich and popular. Charlie is the exact opposite. Despite their differences, they seem like a perfect couple with a mix of misunderstandings every now and then. However, further reading will reveal that they are far from perfect. They have troubles at home that force them to be apart, issues that are left unresolved and suppressed feelings that influence their judgment.

Hoover and Fisher shaped the main characters well. They introduced us to familiar personalities; too familiar that we can easily relate to their situations - pressure of high school peers, teachers, coaches, high expectations from parents, and troubled family life.

Each of the supporting characters served a purpose. Through them, readers get a glimpse of the different aspects of Charlie and Silas. The relationship with their parents allows readers to see the burden and expectations that they carry. Interaction with their siblings gives us a look of their true nature - how they deal and react with the expectations and current situations. Association with their friends and other people allows us to see how they manage to look unburdened in the eyes of other people.

Hoover and Fisher chose the supporting characters well. Readers are given a peek in Charlie’s and Silas’ personality and past life through interactions with the support. And because of this, a lot of assumptions and speculations are formed in our minds that are likely answers to the many questions.

The story is new. I have read my fair share of books and ebooks but nothing is comparable to Never Never. The concept of losing ones memory is not new. A lot of books have embraced this idea and came up with different storylines. However, what sets Never Never apart is that both the protagonists lose their memories at the same time and they are forced to work together to bring back their recollections. That is something you don’t read and see everyday, right?

The mystery of their lost memories is enough to captivate the minds of the readers. Together with Charlie and Silas, the readers come up with their own speculations on the truth behind the mystery. And each discovery leads us closer to the truth. Kudos to Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher!
