Remember Me (Remember Me #1)
When Shari Cooper awoke at home after being at her girlfriend's birthday party, her family acted like she wasn't there. They didn't hear a thing she said. They wouldn't even look at her. Then the call came from the hospital. Her father and brother paled. Her mother started to cry. Shari didn't know what was wrong. Not until she follo ...more
Remember Me is the story of Shari, and it all begins the night she falls of a balcony. Shari was at a firends house for her birthday party. When most of the guests had left the remaining kids decided to call up the dead. Everything liked they were actually talking to a spirit when all of a sudden Shari decided to break the connection and walked to the balcony for some fresh air. A few minutes later she was found lying at the ground, two floors beneath the balcony. Was it murder or s ...more
Ghosts were the scary thing, things going bump in the night, spirits being summoned out of Ouija Boards and seances occuring. In Christopher Pike's Remember Me, it brought back some good memories of a time when scary stories just had ghosts and a simple storyline-nothing more as according to the cover, at the time released this book was ...more
The first book, Remember me, was real good. It's about a girl, Shari who falls off a balcony and dies, and comes back as a ghost I guess you would call it. She doesnt know she is dead. I dont wanna give too much of the story away ...more
Happily, I feel like the story still pretty much holds up. I remember loving it as an 11-year-old, and I love it still as a nostalgic not-so-11-year-old. This was my favorite of the series. I liked the second one (The Return?) okay, but...more
Of all of his novels, though, I think that Remember Me still stands up the best (alongside Fall Into Darkness and Last Act), a ...more
This is the story of a ghost trying to solve her own murder. She can't remember how she died--did she jump from the balcony, or was she pushed? She tries to recreate the events of the party that led up to her death, going over and over who was in which room, who had the opportunity to k ...more

Pros: Likeable lead. Interesting set of characters. Emotions ring true. Story sucks you in.
Cons: Not the glamorous, imaginative afterlife you find in nowadays novels, since lead still walks the Earth. Very small action (if you prefer a faster pace).
WARNING! Moderate sex references (if they upset you at all).
Will appeal to: Everyone who doesn't care for very fast-paced books or romance-centered ones.
First off, RM was published long bef ...more
I've got to say, the first couple of chapters are rough, mainly because you go into it realizing what a self centered and stuck up individual the main character is and since it's told from her point of view, this is a bit bothersome. Howeve ...more
This first was when Shari wakes up after the accident, not realizing she's dead. It's supposed to be a highlight sequence and had the potential to be powerful but because there's been so much leading up to this point, I wasn't feeling it.
The other thing is that ending! The motive for Shari's untimely death was flimsy and quite frankly stupid.
this book was recently re-released in a fancy new omnibus edition, but i was reading a sweet paperback from 1989. the main character wears slacks and says "he's so neat!" as a compliment. it's pretty awesome. perfect hallow ...more

This is the first of three books in a Christopher Pike trilogy. To be able to really review the books, I'm going to need to describe the plots, which means the next two reviews at least will likely contain spoilers.
I have been looking for Christopher Pike books for a while. I was fairly obsessed with his books when I was in high school; they weren't horribly written, they were quick reads, and the characters (as I recall) were pretty interesting and dealt with some odd stuff. They wer ...more
One thing I do like about paranormal and thriller books is its ability to make me reflect on my own life, about dying and the fact that I'm definitely scared of it. I hate dying - imagining my own, but worse imagining others', especially innocent children and young people who have their lives planned out in front of them.
This book was a really good one. Shari is an absolutely ...more
