Remember Me (Remember Me #1)
SHE DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THAT SHE WAS DEAD.
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 fol...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
It starts off with Shari Cooper - the main character - retelling her life from the other side. She starts off to the night before she went to her friend Beth's party. Little did she know that it would be her last night. She was shoved off the balcony that night and she's determined to find her killer from the other side as she teams-up with Peter - her long-dead friend who died in a motorcycle accident, shows up at her funeral and offers to help her cros...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
But then again, I'm not part of the target audience.
I do love ghost stories, but what removes the thrill factor...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
Remember Me follows a young girl's path of acceptance following her murder. The reader is introduced to the ghost of Shari Cooper as she struggles to understand her death and the circumstances around it. Along with this story line there is an adventurous mystery, asking the r...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
Remember Me is fabulously paced;...more
1. The main conflicts, well one major one is, Shari Cooper died, and she knows she was murdered. So through out the book, the conflicts are her finding out she is dead, how she gets used to "the other side", The Shadow, then all the conflicts after she comes back as a Wanderer in a new body.
2. To me, what makes this book unique is the way the author describes the "other side" and all the conflicts, there is always something to keep you guessing, you never really know...more
Let me start of by saying that this is one of the best books i have read in such a long time.
I am hating myself right now. I buy so many books, and this one i brought about a year and a half ago and it has been sitting on my book shelf ever since. I just hate myself for not picking it up sooner.
I literally loved everything about this book. Here is why.
1. It Flowed
Considering other young adult horror writers who were writing around the same time, this was a good novel despite some corny elements. Yes, it was very cliched. Yes, it was cheesy at points. But it...more
I would recommend it for anyone that enjoys a little mystery and suspense. There are sad parts and parts that will upset you (in the best way).
A book a lot like it (although this one is a quicker read, as I have pointed out) is Elizabeth Chandler's Kissed By An Angel. They are definately in the same genre, although Kissed By An Angel i...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
I read a lot of good reviews on this one, and I thought it was truly genius. The way things worked out, it was completely unexpected and very well written.
One thing ticked me off at first though, and that was the main character. To me, she seemed a bit selfish and snobby. A privileged girl with anything she could want.
But then she went all nice and gooey. Great.
No, she did change a lot throughout the book, but one thing did not change. Her obsession with her green eyes. I mean sure, it ends up...more
I think I read all three books (I think there were three?), but it is the first one I remember the most. I really felt for the lead girl, and actually remember feeling quite emotional towards the end at what...more
But who pushed her off the balcony? Why did someone want to murder her? Throughout the course of the book, Shari finds out the identity of her killer, meets up with an old friend who died in a motorcycle accident (the addition of Peter is a lovely romantic twist) and discovers secrets left buried since her birth.
A really good, classic Pike story. Shari is a doll, Peter is amusing and sexy, and the denouement is satisfying. I sa...more
Let me make that clearer - I love Pike. He was my main groove back in middle school and high school, and even though his books can be a bit overly uncomplicated at times, he has an innate ability to present some rather complicated and fantastical concepts to teenagers in a way that never seemed preachy or condescending. And despite that fact that he was a grown man and I have since become a young woman, he has a way of captu...more
