When twenty-eight-year-old Lexi Smart wakes up in a London hospital, she’s in for a big surprise. Her teeth are perfect. Her body is toned. Her handbag is Vuitton. Having survived a car accident—in a Mercedes no less—Lexi has lost a big chunk of her memory, three years to be exact, and she’s about to find out just how much things have changed.

Somehow Lexi went from a twent...more

This would usually be the time when I would ask the largely rhetorical and semi-pathetic question, “Why do I keep reading Sophie Kinsella books?” Well, this time the answer is blatantly obvious—the plot of this one involves amnesia, yo, and I can never resist amnesia—and the question is kind of unfair. Because this wasn’t so bad—far less annoying than the last few Shopaholic books. Kinsella’s strength has always been her ability to create an amusing, fast-paced narrative, and coupled with the a...more

Sophie Kinsella's books follow a formula that's as simple and delicious as my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.

Start with a twenty-something heroine who's slogging away at her career in London. She's far from perfect. Neither an Oxbridge graduate, cover girl, or WAG of a world-class footballer, our girl's best quality is that she's a true-blue friend. She's a pretty hard worker, decent and well-meaning. She hasn't a mean bone in her body. Her flaws tend to run in the direction of materiali...more

This book represents every reason why I do not just pick up adult novels and read them without getting a trusted opinion. But, I'd heard of this author from her previous work (even though I've never read them), it's been well received, and the description sounded interesting, so I thought I'd try it. The fact that every other page contained the f-word (not an exaggeration) was enough to turn me off to the book. Add in the fact that the characters discussion of sex made it sound more like a boys...more

My First Sophie Kinsella Book
Lexie Smart. Was she or was she not Ghandi in a previous life? The fun and farcical story of Lexie Smart has the heroine in this tale, Remember Me?, wondering how she got to a completely different station in life between the years 2004 and 2007. She believes she's stumbled into a dream life, but soon steps into a hornet's nest of complications, including finding out she's married to a "guy she just met," Eric, who is so rigid you have to sit up straighter just readin...more

The idea behind this book is thought provoking - Ladies, what would you do if you suddenly woke up in the hospital to find out that not only have you no memory of the last three years of your life, but that everything you do remember has changed? This would include your appearance (for the Better!), your career (you've been Promoted!), your love life (You're Married!! & to a really good-looking guy), your lifestyle (Fantastic! Your husband is rich and you make three times as much as you used...more

Opening Line: “How long have I been awake? Is it morning yet? I feel so rough. What happened last night? God my head hurts.”

This was a super fun read as all of Kinsella’s books are. Not too much brain-power needed, just a good time so if you’re in the mood for chick-lit it doesn’t get much better than this.

REMEMBER ME was addictively hard to put down as well as LOL funny in places and I got sucked right into the chaos of the heroine’s life and the double romance. Imagine not remembering that yo...more

I was very disappointed in this book. I felt like the author was spending more time trying to use every swear word she had ever heard than developing a good story. The concept intrigued me -- who isn't interested in amnesia? But the story was really about unhappiness and unfaithfulness. It was uninspired. That being said, if any of my friends still want to read it I read it with a black marker in my hand and now at least the bad language and some scenes are edited out!

Such a different fluffy book from what i've been used to. I really liked it!! :D It reminded me a bit of the movie 'The Vow' and 'From 13 to 30'. I haven't read a book of Kinsella before!! And i have to say i really loved her way of writing!! I need to read more of her books!!! :D I also loved the ending. i need that kind of closure to all of my books pleaseeeeee *.* AMAZING BOOK!!! ♥

Oke. Buku ini selesai gue baca hanya dalam waktu beberapa jam saja.
Sebenernya bukan karena ceritanya yang menarik banget, tapi karena emang gue ngga bisa tidur aja.

Untuk ukuran buku yang menceritakan tentang tokoh utama yang kena amnesia, buku ini ngga terlalu rumit untuk diikutin jalan ceritanya.

*catatan: bukan tipe-tipe amnesia yang seperti di sinetron Indonesia yah. Yang jatuh terguling-guling dari tangga, terus pas buka mata udah ada di rumah sakit dengan kepala diperban, dan bertanya-tanya...more

I love Sophie Kinsella. Whenever I read her novels, I can't help but think she seems like the kind of woman I'd be friends with. She writes the way I think, and I can relate to at least one aspect of every single one of her characters. I AM her demographic.

I also love Kinsella's imaginitive plots. In Remember Me?, Lexi wakes up in hospital with a head injury and quickly realizes she's lost three years of her memory. In her mind, it's 2004 and she's your typical, underpaid twenty-something with a...more

It's not the waking up in hospital that freaks out Lexi Smart. It's the fact that she's got nails to die for, porcelain veneers, a glossy mane of hair, a Louis Vuitton handbag, she's Manager of a whole department ... and, oh yes, she's married to a drop-dead gorgeous millionaire husband.

The only drawback she can see is that she's aged three years. But then so has her mother and (not-so-now) little sister.

How the hell did all that happen?

And what happened to the last three years?

Really good chick lit/women's fiction about what drives a person to change their life around...and the repercussions one then regrets.

The main character, Lexi, suffers amnesia after a car accident and can't remember the last three years. Her last memory was of her self as a loser with a loser life...but she wakes up to a hunk of a husband, a promotion at work, and a new look. Seems perfect, right, but she soon discovers it's not and has to figure out what made her change before she can make it b...more

I can always count on Sophie Kinsella's books for a delightful escape, and this one is no exception. Her newest heroine, Lexi, is just as lovable as her others, and she has retained the knack of making me laugh out loud and tear up at the same time. When you finally learn about the sunflower reference on the cover, I hope it takes your breath away as it did for me. Enjoy this charming story!
Melissa
This book was so satisfying, I actually closed the book and sighed when it was over. I love Sophie Kinsella. She's just a guilty pleasure. I know this is not great literature, some of her characters are one-dimensional (Eric, the husband) and I can always see the end coming a mile away, but I just feel so good after reading one of her books.
Ann
Well, sadly, sniff sniff, this book wasn't quite as fun as I was hoping. I mean, it's a comedy, but I just wasn't as into the story or character as the Kinsella Shopaholic books. Too bad, too. I've kind of counted Kinsella as a "favorite chick-lit author" and she still is, just, maybe I'll have to limit it to her Shopaholic series. I only made it half way through this book, so, who knows, perhaps the ending is great! But, I figured there were so many other books I'm anxious to read, that it seem...more

Well, sadly this book was NOT up to Kinsella's standards, in my opinion. I made it about half way through and decided that it just was not picking-up, was not that amusing or entertaining or enjoyable, and really not worth my time to finish it. The plot seemed rather predictable, the humor stilted, and I couldn't get into the characters. Sigh. Annie and I were so looking forward to it, too. Oh well, this will give us more time to read other books together, like the sequel to "Larklight" which we...more

Can't take it anymore...Lexi is not the sharpest knife in the drawer - she has really big problems and all she's thinking about is clothes and crap.

From the Associated Press:
¶ "Remember Me?" (Dial Press Hardcover, 389 pages, $25), by Sophie Kinsella: Lexi Smart is living a fantasy. She woke up from an accident to find herself rich, successful and married to a smoking hot man.
¶ The only problem is that she can't remember how she got to this happy place in life. Amnesia after a car accident has wiped out her memory of the past three years.

Sorry Ms. Kinsella, but this book did not live up to my expectations based on the Shopaholic series. The characters were not at all likable and the plot never meshed. Like a good meal that's been eaten too many times, the chick-lit recipe of "kooky single girl has life fall apart, meets boy of her dreams, loses him, gets him back and lives happily ever after" is getting worn out and stale. Authors of this genre need to bring some aspect to the story that's unique in order to make the book intere...more

Sophie Kinsella is quite the genius. Remember Me? has succeeded at making me even a bigger fan of hers. I think it would be hard to ever top the brilliance of the Shopaholic books, which I adore, but Remember Me? takes a good stab at it. I'm only sorry I didn't manage to get my hands on this book sooner but I'm also sorry that it's finished because I did not want it to end.

Remember Me? contains all the ridiculous, cute and expected humour that I'm used to from Sophie Kinsella yet manages to be a...more

Remember Me? is chick lit at its best.

Lexi Smart is suffering from a disastrous night. Why? (1) Her father just died. (2) She has no Christmas bonus (lacking just a few days of employment). (3) Loser Dave stood her up.

Could the night get any more worse?

Well apparently, it could.

Lexi couldn’t get a blood taxi. So she runs to the middle of the street just to catch one, but Lexi bloody slips.

And voila!

Lexi wakes up at the hospital, and it looks like Lexi just didn’t slip but got involved in a car a...more

I came across a sample book in Barnes and Noble for this one and after reading the chapters in the booklet I definitely wanted to read it. Not only because its by one of my fave authors but because of the premise its based on "what if you suddenly had everything you wanted would it really make you as happy as you thought it would". I recommend this one.

I’ll admit that I enjoyed this book; after all I gave it 3 stars. The plot line was intriguing – albeit not entirely believable. Lexi Smart wakes up in a hospital thinking that the year is 2004 and that she has bad teeth, frizzy hair, and a lacklustre job. Imagine her surprise when she finds out that it is 2008 and she not only has amnesia, but a whole new (and improved) appearance, job, and relationship! But along with the positives of her new life are plenty of negatives, most notably her brok...more

This was a really good book to me... unlike her shopaholic book I loved this one and the undomestic goddess book. This book however left me wanting more info about her memory coming back. I have been thinking all day of how else it could continue on... maybe I just have an overactive imagination.

Okay this was my second book by Sophie Kinsella and I was not disappointed. In fact, I was so delighted that mid-book I checked out a copy of her book, Can You Keep A Secret? from library.

I really enjoyed Remember Me? Although the heroine in the book Lexi Smart was reminiscent of the heroine in Undomestic Goddess (also the same in Can You Keep A Secret?) the storyline itself was pretty formulatic just like Undomestic Goddess and Can You Keep A Secret but they are all so well written that you get...more

I just love this book! I re-read it over the weekend and it's still an exiting read! It's an unlikely plot: Lexi wakes up in a hospital with amnesia and the last thing she remember is being stood up by Loser-Dave the day before her father's funeral. Now it's three year later and she's a beauty, married to a good-looking millionaire and head of her department. How the hell did she get there?

Lexi is an adorable heroine who struggles to get into this new life. It seems that she has landed the perfe...more
