Dear Amelia Atwater-Rhodes,

Persistence of MemoryI’m wavering between three and four stars on Persistence of Memory, but I think I come down on the side of three.  It had many elements of a likable fantasy–strange happenings, vampire women, sexy wizard men, action and confusion, and also some interesting commentary on the mental health industry.  My issue with it was that it was too short to contain all of that.  I didn’t get to spend enough time with the main character, or with any of the other characters, to get to like them or understand them.  As a result, most of them started to grate on me by the end, rather than arouse any empathy.  I wish you’d written this book twice, or even three times, the length it actually was–then, I think, there would have been enough space for the many plot elements to stretch out their limbs.
