The Amnesia Clinic is a gripping and powerful novel set in Quito, Ecuador, about storytelling and imagination, the loss of innocence and the shortcomings of reality. Anti, a quiet English boy, strikes up a friendship with a flamboyant local classmate, Fabi#65533;n, and before long, the relationship between them becomes one conducted almost entirely through the medium of storytelling.

Deeply troubled by his parents' death and desperate to believe that his mother may still be alive, Fabi#65533;n becomes obsessed with one of their fabrications: a bizarre hospital on the coast for patients with memory loss. As their grip of reality grows increasingly tenuous, the boys embark on a quixotic voyage across Ecuador in search of an "amnesia clinic"that may or may not exist.

Interesting story with great settings and developed characters. What's better, story or real life is the question of this novel. Worth reading.
