Review When I first started reading Elizabeth is Missing, I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy it because I don't usually read contemporary novels so it was a little out of my comfort zone. However after reading the summary I decided to give it a go and I am so glad I did. Elizabeth is Missing is about Maud who has problems with her memory and she knows in her head the Elizabeth has gone missing but no one believes her and keeps brushing her off. What Maud is remembering is about something that happened in the past but she confuses it with the present. Maud has memories that have been jumbled with the present and it makes her confused because she knows the memory is correct but she muddles it with something that has happened sooner that she thinks. Maud was a great character and I did feel really connected to her. I have had a family member that problems with their memory and some of the things that Maud did, this family member did as well. So as I was reading Maud felt like a member of the family. I did feel sorry for her because she was trying so hard to find out what had happened to Elizabeth and no one believed her and thought she was just confused. Maud wasn't confused she knew something had happened however she did confuse the person that it happened to. I was intrigued to see where the story was going to go and I did have an inkling on how Maud was confusing Elizabeth with. this was a really enjoyable read and I would highly recommend it to most people, especially if you want something a bit out of your comfort zone.
