Who would you be if you were unable to remember anything from the last 24 years? Sampson is found wandering in the Nevada desert with absolutely no recollection of his teen or adult years, including his relationship to his wife, whom he apparently loved very much. With his blank slate of a mind, he is recruited to be part of a cutting edge research project, but the understanding he hoped for remained elusive. His attempts to reinvent himself take him on a cross-country journey of discovery. ( )

Not quite history but a nice story about a man who has lost his memory. I am into these kinds of books and I wouldn't say this is the best of the genre but I did enjoy it thoroughly. ( )

Wow. Read this book. I’m not going to be able to explain it properly, but it was compelling and deep. The protagonist loses 24 years of memory, which drives a wedge between him and his wife (no – more like a chasm, because there’s nothing there) who he no longer knows. His memories end at age 12, but he is able to make new ones. He volunteers for a charismatic doctor’s project to copy and paste memories from one brain to another which has, as they would put it on a dust jacket, “disastrous consequences.” This is a phrase that normally turns me off cold and makes me put a book back on the shelf, but I’m glad I checked this one out anyway because the consequences and their fallout (all of which are emotional) are written so deftly I hated the author a little bit. (Always a sure sign of good writing when I curse the author.) A quote, if I may: “And what is a life, Samson wondered now, without a witness?” Ugh – so many implications for writing, for reading, for memory, for relationships. ( )

I love Krauss's quiet, empathetic style. She goes to the heart of understanding what it is to be human and the nature of relationships. ( )

Reading the back of this book led me to believe that I had picked up an edgy and philosophical novel. The two pages of positive critical reviews encouraged the belief that I'd found a literary gem. Man Walks into a Room is nothing like that. Krauss tried so hard (or maybe she didn't try - maybe that's it) to write a novel that questions what it means to be human (an overrated and cliched goal) but she just can't deliver.

The premise is fairly interesting - a college literature professor is found wandering in the desert. After a tumor is removed from his brain, he is left with no memories past the age of 12. Samson Greene, however, has the mind of a mature adult (just no memories). Strangely, he doesn't have much desire to regain those memories. He passively lets his life go by. He isn't very concerned about his marriage. He ends up participating in an experiment (described on the back of the book as a "bold" experiment). Nothing really happens. Samson then wanders around for a bit, but I'm not convinced that he experienced a "beautifully painful revelation of what it is to be a human being" (I'm quoting the back of the book again).

None of the characters (there aren't that many) are interesting. It's even hard to sympathize with Samson himself, despite the fact that he lost his memory.

This is a very boring, very disappointing, little story. There is nothing "deep" about it. Would not recommend. ( )

Having introduced this straight-out-of-Philip-K.-Dick plot twist, Krauss leaves it unresolved, and fails to unite the myriad thematic strands involving memory and solitude, including many heavy-handed biblical allusions (not least the protagonist's name), into a coherent whole. Worse, Krauss seems to want to make each paragraph a poem: nearly every page contains a strained simile on the order of ''the dog crouched between them like a small country'' or ''Samson took out the Jack Daniel's that he'd been clutching to his chest like a wounded baby rabbit.''

And yet what else does it mean to be loved, Samson wondered, than to be understood? What else but to be profoundly touched by another?
