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.

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

“Remember Me?” is a solid book if you like Sophie Kinsella, and it's got some humor, but I think it's a pretty big step down from her other books. The story was just too slow moving and predictable for me. I kept waiting and waiting for something interesting and funny to happen, but I’m disappointed to say nothing ever did. In typical chick lit fashion, the conflicts do get resolved with some twists and turns, which are pretty fun and empowering, but I'm not digging the whole romance between Lex ...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

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

Typically, I don’t give 2 star ratings cause I’ve never felt like a book was just “ok.”

It’s usually, I love a book, enjoy it, find it pleasant, or hate it. Finding a book that is just “ok” for me is rare.

But sadly, I must give it to this book.

Remember Me was an interesting book with great potential but terrible, terrible implementation.

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

I really enjoyed this one! My favorite Kinsella book to date. I'm still not a fan of the relationship storyline that I get from this book and the other two adult SK books I've read... I don't know if it's the chick lit genre or just Kinsella, but I'm hoping some of her other books have something different to offer. But aside from that, the story was so funny and crazy but it just worked. I was laughing out loud and cringing all the way! Is it just me or does Sophie know ho

Lexi Smart has the most ironic name in literature. I think there must be houseplants smarter than she is. Pages and pages and chapters and chapters of her trying to digest the fact that she doesn't remember the last three years. And it's like each new thing she learns is this totally amazing, unexpected event. "I'll send your sister in, then, shall I" and she spends two pages wondering who the sullen teen is who enters the room. What, you can't add three to 12 and come up with teen? She seriousl ...more

Sophie Kinsella é Sophie Kinsella...a rainha do chick-lit! Os seus livros divertem-me como ninguém se bem que entre todos os livros únicos da autora, este é capaz de ser o mais fraquinho (Agora lembrei-me do "És capaz de guarda um segredo? esse sim é o mais fraco dela!) Ainda assim foi uma boa leitura de entretenimento.

A sinopse lança basicamente a premissa do livro, temos a Lexi que numa noite de farra com as amigas, cai ao tentar apanhar um táxi. Na manhã seguinte, acorda numa cama de hospital

Ok this was fun but WHAT kind of ending was that?!?! This book's not my least favorite Sophie Kinsella story, but there was hardly any romance or the usual lighthearted/upbeat tone.

Basic story: Lexi wakes up in a hospital and learns that she was in an accident a few days ago and lost all of her memories from the past 3 years. She's changed into a new person she doesn't recognize, both physically and personality-wise. And she's married to a super rich, gorgeous guy. Most of the story is her tryin

Very readable - I could not put this down. but the main character is the most shallow and insipid character I've ever read about and the fact that no one communicated properly infuriated me. There were a million ways I kept thinking of how things could have been handled better. Also, this is yet another Sophie Kinsella book that glorifies cheating.

Audiobook review: The narrator was good and fit Kinsella's style very well.

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!

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!

Typical Sophie Kinsella chick lit, pure candy fluff.

Lexi was a complete thicko, and it wasn't down to her amnesia, it was just her. It was impossible to believe she used to be some high flying, smart tough businesswoman when she acted like a fool 99% of the time. She was also a flakey, irritating doormat. I kind of hated her but at the same time rooted for her purely because the friends/family she was surrounded by were a million times worse than her.

It was bizarre how Lexi constantly made 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!!! ♥

I'm not sure I can quite write down the reasons why I love Sophie Kinsella so much.
But these books... they're so refreshing - the absolute best solution to cure reading slumps - so full of life, hilarious just to think about...
Sure, they do have their faults. Our main characters are somewhat uninteresting at times and the situations they get themselves into are utterly ridiculous. But it's all... SO MUCH FUN! That's how I can describe Kinsella's work best.

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

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

4'5... más 5 que 4. La verdad es que esperaba una novela algo más floja, pero Kinsella siempre me sorprende para bien. Quizá hay partes que se hacen un poco pesadas, pero siempre levanta el vuelo un par de páginas más adelante.

El libro trata sobre la amnesia que sufre la protagonista después de un accidente. A medida que avanzamos en la obra, podremos ir descubriendo junto a ella qué es lo que ha ocurrido durante ese tiempo que ella no recuerda. Me ha gustado mucho el carácter de Eric, un poco p

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?

Quando Lexi acorda no hospital, não tem qualquer memória dos últimos três anos da sua vida. Assim, intrigadíssimas, transitamos com ela das suas recordações de 2004 para o desconhecido, em 2007. Como é que Lexi passou de uma miúda com uns quilinhos as mais, cabelo mortiço, dentes a precisar urgentemente de correcção e um namorado misógino - uma Lexi que, digamos de uma vez por todas, velejava a velocidade desastrosa num mar de azar - para uma autêntica Barbie morena e bem sucedida?!

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

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.
