I liked the cover of this book, so I read it.
Numb: A Novel is by Sean Ferrell. Numb is about a man with amnesia that has a condition by which he feels no physical pain. He could have a nail hammered into his hand and not fell the slightest bit of pain. This talent is first exploited in a circus and later he convinced to move to New York City for fame. The story is about trust, exploitation and learning who your friends are.
Numb was a quick read and the author did an excellent job of planting seeds of doubt on the integrity of different characters throughout the story. I really liked Numb. I’m glad I stumbled upon this book.
