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

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

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

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

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

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!!! ...more

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

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

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?

3.5 stars. Not bad, I enjoyed the fun amnesia aspect.
Karina
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

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

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

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.

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.

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

If you want humour, you can always count on Sophie Kinsella.
In 2004, Lexi Smart is a fat 25-years old girl with a stupid boyfriend, crooked teeth and an underpaid job. In 2007, 28-years old Lexi wakes up in hospital to find herself a Cinderella with fabulous teeth-line & hot-shit job as CEO. What she just don't get is the memory of the past three years of her life which is filled with only-god-knows-how-it-had-happened twists and turns. Her condition dawns on her only when she finds out the

I thought it would be fun and at least some laugh out loud moments like Undomestic Goddess, obviously it was far from it. Aside from the hazy 'love story', said love story itself was far from giving me the fuzzy feels. I felt detached from all the relationships in this book - love, familial or friendship.

On the heels of reading Can You Keep a Secret?, this book was a major disappointment.

Junior assistant Lexi Smart has a car accident and wakes up with complete amnesia. The last thing she remembers happened 3 years ago and now she has the perfect executive job, the most gorgeous husband imaginable, a stunning penthouse apartment, a housekeeper, and the perfect body and face. The only problem is that she doesn't remember how she got to this most perfect place. Erik, the perfect husband...NOT, is

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
