The Last Conversation
The Last Conversation | Paul Tremblay
18 posts | 22 read | 10 to read
What’s more frightening: Not knowing who you are? Or finding out? A Bram Stoker Award–winning author explores the answer in a chilling story about identity and human consciousness.
Imagine you’ve woken up in an unfamiliar room with no memory of who you are, how you got there, or where you were before. All you have is the disconnected voice of an attentive caretaker. Dr. Kuhn is there to help you—physically, emotionally, and psychologically. She’ll help you remember everything. She’ll make sure you reclaim your lost identity. Now answer one question: Are you sure you want to?
Paul Tremblay’s The Last Conversation is part of Forward, a collection of six stories of the near and far future from out-of-this-world authors. Each piece can be read or listened to in a single thought-provoking sitting.

Once again as I have come to expect, fabulous work by Paul Tremblay! In this short story we are immersed in a patient‘s mysterious healing process as Tremblay explores the idea that we only know who we are by what others tell us and our memories, which change over time.

Just finished this read that's perfect for the #IllRemember prompt. This is the first I've read anything by Paul Tremblay & it's quite astonishing the levels of dread he managed to convey in a short story/novella. A person wakes up alone in a room, trying to remember, & it's slowly revealed the condition they're in. I felt a keen sense of desolation as I read this. The confusion & the low-key creepiness felt wholly dystopic. #movember @Cinfhen

Part of Amazon‘s Forward collection, an assortment of popular writers focusing on the possibilities of the future. A man awakens with no sense of who he is or what has happened when he wakes up in a small isolated room. A disembodied voice is his only connection to the outside world. Over a month, he slowly learns what has happened and who the voice belongs to and the result is a terrifying story that haunts long after the final words.

🎶I'll be your fire when the lights go out
When there's no one, no one else around
We'll be two souls in a ghosttown🎶

Waking up in a dark room, not knowing who or where you are, you have only the disconnected voice of a caretaker. It‘s just the 2 of you and she wants to help you find who you are, but should you?

4 STARS | GRADE B+
I was leaning towards two stars for most of the way through this, right up until the end...and well, you can see I upped it to four. This one has an actual ending to it, even though it was left hanging in a way it still totally worked. If you listened to it, you'll get what I mean.

So my boyfriend, my friend, and I were all reading Amazon‘s Forward Collection sort of together and we‘ve all finally finished, so I decided to see what our group average ratings were for all the stories. “The Last Conversation” came out on top for us (Woo! I need to read more Tremblay now. 😃) and, much to our surprise, “Emergency Skin” was unanimously our least favorite (I‘m a bit relieved I wasn‘t the only one with that #unpopularopinion 😅).

This was a very short audiobook that keeps you guessing as to why the narrator has insomnia. The story begins with him in dire pain. The listener expects it to be a car accident. The book would have been better if the ending were a surprise. The story is a tad too long, making it too easy to figure it out before the big reveal. In other words, the ending was disappointing. Still, it‘s an original and suspenseful short story worth a listen.

At first listening to this I was just comparing it slightly unfavorably to the phenomenal first season of "Within the Wires" but the ending really blew me away. You are recovering alone in a dark room. You have no memory of your life but the doctor speaking to you from somewhere else is trying to help... A haunting little dystopian tale for spooky season!

Eerie and unnerving are my thing right up there with coffee and carbohydrates. This Twilight Zone adjacent story is here to remind you that you can‘t always get what you want. Don‘t sleep on this. It‘s about the same price as a dang coffee. Tremblay is the shizzle!

I enjoyed this better than You Have Arrived at Your Destination. I found it interesting that it was written in the second person, it felt fitting for the story in order to relate to the protagonist (well, basically, the reader is the protagonist). For most of the story, you are kept in the dark about what's happening, you just know that something is very eerie about the situation.
Rating 3.5/5

One of six Amazon Original Stories

About the Collection:
For some, it‘s the end of the world. For others, it‘s just the beginning. With brilliant imagination, today‘s most visionary writers point to the future in a collection curated by bestselling author Blake Crouch. These stories range from darkly comic to deeply chilling, but they all look forward.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Out of the three stories in Amazon‘s Forward collection that I‘ve read so far, this has easily been my favorite. The story moves kind of slowly, but it always kept me interested and curious about what would happen so I was never bored. The 2nd person pov worked well too and didn‘t get on my nerves like it did in “Emergency Skin.” ⬇️

Just downloaded these new Amazon Original Stories. 😄 Which one should I read first? I‘m having trouble deciding. 🤔

DrexEdit I'd have trouble deciding where to start too! So many good authors! You may have to resort to the dartboard method. 😁 4mo
AlaMich I'll have to check these out. These virtual covers are pretty neat. 😊 4mo
