The Memory of Animals
by Claire Fuller

Memory of Animals is a haunting novel that explores the complexities of survival. Neffy signs up for a drug trial shortly before a pandemic (not that one) ravages London.  Now she and her fellow triallers are trapped in the very place that may have saved their lives.  This book is certainly a dystopian novel, and it may surprise those who have loved her earlier books, but her powers of observation – of the world and of human nature – are very much in evidence.
