When I was teen, Christopher Pike was the first author I searched for in the book stores. If he had a new book out, I would do anything to make sure I had it. In fact, years later, I still have those books. Remember Me, though, stands out among his books. Just the idea of a girl telling her story as a ghost who was murdered. I loved it. When I think about Pike's books, this is the first one that comes to mind. I know they recently re-released this book, and I think even though it's an old book, ...more
I loved the absolute SHIT out of Christopher Pike books when I was a teenager. They were like the next step up from Goosebumps in terms of creepiness and language, but they felt waaaaaay more mature because the characters, like, had sex and went to parties with alcohol and all that shit.

For some incredibly stupid reason, I decided to reread this, a good 20 years (ohgod I'm so old) after I last read a Christopher Pike book.

And.........this was fucking terrible, you guys.

I read this book more than half of my life ago, but it still haunts me as one of the best books I've ever read. For a thirteen year old girl interested in "the other side", this book was the cat's pajamas. I don't remember much about it despite the main character Shari's plea not to forget (har har), but I do remember reading it multiple times and feeling a little like I could cry when the book was over. I will always have a soft spot for this book, and for Christopher Pike.

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

Remember Me puts the "normal" back into "paranormal" with its main character, an average girl murdered and left seeking revenge. This book has its good and bad points but overall I really enjoyed it.

Do you remember what the supernatural used to be like before the world of Vampires and Werewolves and even Zombies took over our world of modern day literature ?
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

It was meh. Okay. Honestly, it was my least favorite Christopher Pike book I have read. I usually enjoy his books but this one did nothing for me. The plot dragged, I felt there was way too much filler materiel and conversations about a whole lot of nothing. None of the characters were likable nor was I able to relate in any way. Frankly Shari annoyed me and that is hard to not like the protagonist. Even if it is a "I like to hate" type of feeling. I need to feel SOMETHING. But this was dull.

This is so bad it's good!

Christopher Pike's teenagers were everything R.L Stine's Fearstreet's teenagers wanted to be but never could be :P

ummm okay. I found this book at walmart and reading the back cover, it sounded like a good read. It is a reprint of Pikes Remember me, but it is an omnibus, containing the entire trilogy in one. But sadly the omnibus isnt listed on goodreads so ill review them all here.

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

I'm pretty sure I read this for the first time in about 6th grade...and hundreds of times since then. I haven't read it in years (sold my original at a garage sale I'm guessing), but I realized as I re-read it that I still have huge chunks of it memorized. Yikes.

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

BOOK OF MY CHILDHOOD. Explaining the appeal of Christopher Pike novels to someone who never read them as a preteen is, I find, much like trying to explain the awesomeness of something like Grease 2 to a 30-something adult who never watched the movie as a child. It's so wrapped up in nostalgia and how unique it felt like when you were young, sheltered, and hyper-emotional.

Of all of his novels, though, I think that Remember Me still stands up the best (alongside Fall Into Darkness and Last Act), a

I have been listening to the podcast Teen Creeps and became interested in Christopher Pike. I wish I had read more in high school, I would have loved his books in high school. Anyway, a fun to read thriller. Though it was strange how Shari said "blasted" all of the time.

Excerpt from my review - originally published at Offbeat YA.

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 little 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.

One thing I learned from my Christopher Pike obsession was several ways to kill people. For example, this book taught me that if you inject an air bubble into a vein, it'll stop your heart. ***The more you know***

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

What started off as a fairly good concept quickly turned into a downhill story with ridiculous twists and turns that came completely out of nowhere about a shallow, stuck up girl who suddenly has a change in morals after she dies and finds out who killed her. There were few aspects of this book that I found enjoyable. Probably the most interesting character, Jo, was left out of a large majority of the story. I found it hard to really connect with any of the characters or to find the reactions of ...more

I like the idea of this story. A girl who is murdered and becomes a ghost and tries to find her murderer. I think I would've liked it a lot better if I got to know more about the characters and if the person who murdered the girl (Shari Cooper) had a better motive... It wasn't terrible, I did enjoy reading Shari as a ghost, but I don't think I will continue with the series.
I loved this book as a tween/teen (I think I was about 11 or 12 when I read it. I remember being shocked because there was mild swearing in it. Ah, youthful innocence... *eye roll*). On the re-read, I found it was simply awful...and AWESOME! The stock characters, the predictable plot twists, the quasi-New Agey elements (although this one wasn't as bad about that as his later books). It was every bit the quintessential Christopher Pike I remember.

Continuing my foray into Christopher Pike's young adult novels so beloved by my wife, I picked up Remember Me because the back cover copy sounded intriguing. The premise of the story is that it is told from the perspective of Shari Cooper, an eighteen year-old who is dead and wanders the world as a ghost, following the friends she left behind, her family and the world-weary detective assigned to her case who doesn't seem to believe she actually committed suicide.

Remember Me is fabulously paced;
Remember Me by Christopher Pike is a book about a girl named Shari Cooper. Shari is a seventeen year old girl who believes she has evrything. She has wonderful parents and a great older brother, Jimmy, and she even has a best friend Jo. Shari attends a party at her friends house one night. She goes to the party happy and complete, but she leaves the party angry and wanting revenge. Shari goes on a journey to find out what happened to her that night and comes out finding things she didn't expect ...more

I read this when I was younger and remembered liking it but didn't remember much else about it. I was hesitant to read it simply because all I could think was that it was no going to live up to my memories of it. However, this book had stood the test of time.

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

Remember Me by Christopher Pike is still my favorite book by him. I read the book when it was originally released and recently found a new copy that contains this book and the two stories that followed. Even on re-reading the book, I found that I still enjoyed the story as much as I did the first time. The book tells the story of Shari Cooper who went to a party at a friend's house and woke up the next moring dead. The police and her friends and family believe that she killed herself but Shari k ...more

Did you ever read Christopher Pike as a kid?

I remember the first time I read this book. I was in the fifth grade and all I know is that this book scared me so much that I would read it out in the hallway with the lights on. This was my very first scary book and I loved it. This book introduced me to the the likes of R.L. Stine and other Christopher Pike books, however none are as ever good as the first you read. There were some pretty strange stories out there by those two. I always loved reading but this book introduced me to a whole oth ...more

When I was a teen, many moons ago, I was a Christopher Pike addict. This was one of the best ones. I quit reading Pike’s books once they hit a point where it was sequel after sequel. (Remember Me was fine being a lone book and not the first installment of a trilogy.) This is one of the few “teen” books that I kept once I outgrew that phase. Twenty years later and I still have it packed away in a box of books that I don’t want to part with because I’ve enjoyed rereading them but don’t have room o ...more
