Publisher's Summary

What would you do if you googled yourself and uncovered something shocking?

In this gripping psychological thriller, a group of privileged suburban moms amuse themselves by googling everyone in town, digging up dirt to fuel thorny gossip. Caroline Thompson, devoted mother of two, sticks to the moral high ground and attempts to avoid these women. She's relieved to hear her name appears only three times, citing her philanthropy. Despite being grateful that she has nothing to hide, a delayed pang of insecurity prods Caroline to google her maiden name - which none of the others know.

The hits cascade like a tsunami. Caroline's terrified by what she reads. An obituary for her sister, JD? That's absurd. With every click the revelations grow more alarming. They can't be right. She'd know. Caroline is hurled into a state of paranoia, upending her blissful family life, desperate to prove these allegations false before someone discovers they're true.

The disturbing underpinnings of The Memory Box expose a story of deceit, misconceptions, and an obsession with control. With its twists, taut pacing, and psychological tenor, Natiello's pause-resisting suspense cautions: Be careful what you search for.

    Story
    "Just couldn't finish it..."

    I wanted to like this book SO much... I mean, what a cool plot idea: a woman who sees something strange online after Googling herself, which leads to family secrets. The problem was, it was boring. It was clear early on what this "family secret" was, and after listening to very (very) detailed and endless descriptions of this woman's many breakdowns, I just got bored with it. Clearly she wasn't mentally all there, and being inside this woman's head was just... well, annoying. There wasn't much action besides the protagonist gasping, freezing, choking, spinning with dizziness and collapsing over every single thing every single step of the way. I would never act that way. I just didn't like her, and couldn't relate to her. Also, the barely-there husband didn't help the shallowness of the story. Such a bummer, but I gave up after investing nearly 3 hours. I just didn't care to hear the rest it.

    "Crazy!"

    This book was not just good, it was crazy good. I can't go into too much detail because I don't want to give anything away. If you are suffering from Gone Girl withdrawal, clear your schedule for a whole day and read this book.

    It really is that good!

    "Painful listening"

    I kept listening in the hopes that this book would get better. The only thing tolerable was the Narrater, Casseandra Campbell.

    There just be a warning label on this novel- "finishing this Novel may be difficult."

    "Worth it"

    Parts of this story dragged but if you hang in there, the ending makes it worth it. At times it was easy to figure out where this story was going but done in such a way that nothing wS spoiled. I enjoyed the very realistic portrayal of life in the suburbs with everyone caught up in their own little dramas.

    Story
    "Memory Box..sealed with a twist."

    I was intrigued by the summary and found myself dragged in by suspense. While there were no chases, gun toting bad guys, or bloody corpses around every corner; I found the building plot delightfully troubling. The ongoing internal monologues , 'repressed memories', and psychopathic deception, all came together and left me wondering how it would all end.

    "One of the worst books ever"

    I downloaded this without looking at any reviews. Big mistake. I would suggest reading some of the one and two star reviews on Amazon, which detail exactly why this book is so very awful. The one thing I would add is that it's even worse on audio because about 9 of the 11 hours are read in an overwrought or hysterical tone.

    "Overall Good Read"

    I enjoyed the way that this story was written. The author truly did a great job. I just can't decide if it's too descriptive at times or if it was just because I was on edge wanting to know the truth and therefore lacked patience with the characters at times. Interesting read.

    Story
    "Pretty Predictable"

    Found it kinda boring at first. No explanation of why she had memory loss (this is addressed later, but too late). I guessed most of the ending pretty easily. And the narrator just sounded like she was out of breath a lot. Sharp intakes of breath.

    Story
    "Tedious"

    The book could've been great but for me, it failed. Explanations, conversations and thoughts were tediously drawn out. I stuck with the book because it received good reviews and so I kept expecting great things to happen. From my perspective it was predictable. I hoped I'd be wrong. But the ending was just the way I'd imagined.
