In fact, I think it's almost Hollywood in nature. Okay, here's how it goes. This character, in the middle of the climax, is nearly beaten to death by way of a blunt object to his head. He enters a coma for a few months. When he finally gets out of it, he has no memory of what had happened, nor who was involved. The nearest he can remember was the events before the book (or just in the first chapter). He still remembers his friends, his family, who he is, where he is etc, just not the people that dragged him through the plot of the entire book and brought him to the climax. They're just strangers to him despite knowing them for a good long while. What I think is unrealistic is that he seems to get into a coma for a very specific length of time and is gifted with a very specific form of memory loss. Yet all that hinges on a tragic scene I have set up where an aquatience the main character that he had just gottent to know goes to congradulate him for his brave acts, but the main character has no clue as to who he is. What should I do? Should I revamp the scene?
