ABOUT THE BOOK
How do you solve a murder when you can only remember yesterday?
There are two types of people in the world. Those who can only remember yesterday, and those who can also recall the day before.
You have just one lifeline to the past: your diary. Each night, you write down the things that matter. Each morning, your diary tells you where you were, who you loved and what you did.
Today, the police are at your door. They say that the body of your husband's mistress has been found in the River Cam. They think your husband killed her two days ago.
Can you trust the police? Can you trust your husband? Can you trust yourself?
Welcome to a world where there are only two types of people - Monos and Duos. Monos can only remember yesterday while Duos have the capacity to remember yesterday and the day before. For this reason, Duos feel far more superior to Monos and are considered the upper echelon of society. Armed with their iDiary, everyone carefully keeps an account of their days so that they can remember what has happened in their lives.
Claire and Mark are an unusual couple in that Mark is Duo and Claire is Mono but on the outside, they appear to have a very happy life. Mark is even hoping to go into politics and is pushing a bill that will support mixed marriages between Monos and Duos, using his own happy union as an example of how it works. But when a woman's body is discovered, suddenly the police are interested in talking to Mark, because he is mentioned in the victim's iDiary. A lot. As events start to spiral out of control, Claire desperately wants to figure out exactly what has happened but how can she do that when she cannot remember and her iDiary doesn't seem to be shining light on the truth. But not everyone is always honest in the accounts of their days, and what if there are people who can remember everything...
Intriguing, unconventional, and fresh, YESTERDAY by Felicia Yap drew me into a new world that still somehow felt familiar, and held my attention with compelling characters, suspense, and plenty of drama and subterfuge. Written in short chapters from different characters points of view, the plot moved along at a good pace and gave enough detail to keep me hooked and give us an insight into who these characters really are.
With lies, betrayals, secrets, and unbridled anger, YESTERDAY is a wonderful debut novel that will translate perfectly onto the silver screen, and the ending was absolutely perfect! If you are looking for a crime thriller that is outside of the box and unlike anything else that I have read in a long time, then YESTERDAY by Felicia Yap is the one for you.
Felicia Yap grew up in Kuala Lumpur. She has been a cell biologist, a war historian, a university lecturer, a technology journalist, a theatre critic, a flea-market trader and a catwalk model.
