Amazing. Honestly I can't really get very detailed with this review as far as details because I read it awhile ago, but I will say this. It definately was way more entertaining then I thought it would be.

A very spiritual book I want to say. About the afterlife and what happens after death. Your soul. What it means to die and values on the belief that when you "die" your never really gone that your soul is immortal. It kind of reminded me of The Immortal series ALOT, but condensed into one book.

I don't really like reviewing a book that contains 3 books in the one.

I will try to rate the books seperately. I really enjoyed Remember Me. I would give that one 4 stars. Reading it, I was sure that I had found an author that I would enjoy reading more books written by him. I was wrong. I read The Return and was so disappointed. It was a forced read. The book jumped around so much and the story didn't interest me. I would give that one a 1 star. I started reading The Last Story in hopes that i

I was really disappointed with this book as a whole. Reading the discription, I had high hopes; the plot sounded really interresting. I thought it started off ok, when the accident first happened and the evidence and crime scene were being reviewed, but it just went downhill for me as it went on. I thought there was way too much written about how Shari couldn't fly or walk through walls, etc. That wasn't really all that important of a topic to dwell on as much as I felt the author did. I felt th ...more

Another amazing book about the ETHEREAL. :-)

Talk about the unworldly, the spiritual and the heavenly; add to these the thrill, the mystery and the supernatural, a touch of humor, a little bit of romance, and a little more of life... or DEATH. This book has it all in balanced proportions - Very purely crafted and written to hook the reader's attention until the very end.

The author was able to weave a fantastic story of an eighteen-year-old girl and her life after death, as she str

Sadly, I realized I just can't finish this omnibus. I really enjoyed the first book, REMEMBER ME. I thought it was clever and I enjoyed how it avoided being overtly religious even though it was dealing with ghosts and the afterlife. The second book was just...I can't finish it. I feel like I'm reading a New Age recruitment pamphlet and the characters are bland.

I have to put this one aside.

Bummer. I really liked the first one.

Honestly, Don't Fear the Reaper by Michelle Muto handled the afterlife

Remember me is a sad book. But also a happy one. A young girl is murdered, and after death she wonders the world trying to find out who killed her, and why. Well, jealousy, and betrayal rounds the edges of this book. As I said before Christopher Pike knows how to write a good book. I love Remember me.

Have you ever wanted a book were the main character is dead? Well if you do this book is wright for you!! It is about a 15, 16 year old girl that dies at a birthday party. But how did she die? Was it suiside? Was it murder? It's up to you and Shari (main character) to find the mistery character!!!

**DNF at 154 pages, 2.5 stars rounded down**

I'm really disappointed in this book. It's not that I didn't like it, it's that there was so much wasted potential.

In a book, the first chapter should set the plot up nicely, get the readers hooked. This book did not have that. It's not like it was slow, it's that the plot just wasn't going anywhere. It was so slow, and Shari was annoying.

Shari would constantly say that she was just so pretty, so memorable, so popular, and even at her funeral, she

This mysteriously gripping novel Remember Me is yet another Christopher Pike classic. The book holds your attention as it is told from the main character, Shari Cooper's, point of view. After waking up dead and entering the afterlife, Shari Cooper sets out on a quest to find her killer with the reader right by her side. It is intriguing to see how Shari's story is uncovered since we only know as much as she does. Personally, I enjoy the the fact that the main character is the narrator because i ...more

Remember Me:

I just finished Remember Me and I was surprised. It wasn't what I expected at all. I was expecting it to be a little more creepy, and I probably was judging it solely on the cover. The cover looks creepy. Oh well, don't judge a book, right? Anyway, it ended up being a feel good book, in my opinion. I loved the story line between Peter and Shari. In fact I was disappointed when I finished the book and read the first paragraph of the next book and realized that Peter and Shari would no

I have read Christopher Pike's books before, thanks to Roberta from Offbeat YA, and I am used to his strange / weird writing style. “Remember Me” follows the story of a 17 years old girl, Shari, who dies at a friend’s birthday party and comes back to life as a ghost. Now Shari is trying to find her murderer. This is not just a dark horror story, it is much more than that. Of course, as always, I cannot reveal a lot, but I assure you that there's more than meets the eye in this book. I don't kno ...more

As this is 3 books in 1 I'm going to review as I go.

Remember Me 5 stars

I'm happy to give it 5 stars I really enjoyed this first story and the little shocker of a twist that happens towards the end. Such an easy read I found my way half way through with out knowing it. I'm really interested as to how the series continues as its seems so sewn up by the end of the first.

The Return 2.5 Stars

I really enjoyed Remember Me and thought the story was complete so why a sequel had to be written I don't k

We recently got this all-in-one trilogy at work and I picked it up because I remembered reading the first book as a "tween" and really liking it.

Well, I did like the first 1/3 on the re-read, which is the reason for the three stars. The first book is a murder mystery where the victim tracks down and busts her own killer with the help of a fellow spirit friend and a washed-up police detective. It was fast-pased, creepy, and kept me reading. It was just as good as I remembered. I hadn't read the

I originally bought this book because it sounded really good from the cover and it was really thick so i had plenty to read on the long plane ride. I again learned not to judge a book by its cover!
The first book( the book is 3 in 1), was pretty good, but the secound was dissappointing. For a young adult book it was kind of boring and it felt like the author was trying too hard. There were concepts that he was trying to make the reader grasp that were very contriversial and in some parts disturb

This book definitely wasn't what I expected. When I picked it up, I was expecting what I see in any other young adult fantasy, a common plot with a mildly interesting climax and a satisfying ending to wrap it up. What I got was a book that took me deep into the philosophies of spirituality and belief in oneself. It got me thinking about some of the more deeper aspects of life and had me questioning things that I'd believed for my entire life. I felt at multiple times that this book wasn't my typ ...more

I read these in my tween-to-teen years, I picked it up again just to see if they held up and I have to say I was impressed. No vampires, no werewolves, no clumsy pale lip-biting thinly veiled versions of biblical implications of female sexuality, just a strong female protagonist. The trilogy boasts strong metaphysical and spiritual themes and makes no apologies for main characters strength, weaknesses, sexuality, and sense of self. This cements Pike as one of my favorite authors.

The first book had some highs and lows. I liked the characters as a whole but the love interest is just weird to me, I feel like the author rushed into it a bit. I also didn't like what kind of abilities the author gave to the "ghosts." The Epilogue was disappointing to me too. The rest of the spiritual aspects and such were interesting though. The only thing that really kept me reading was the suspense and wanting to know who killed her. I'm not too excited about starting the second book. ...more

Remember Me is a great book if you like mystery, gohst and on the edge of your seat type of books. This book was a great book cause i love mystery and this is a great mystery book. If you like trying to figure out crimes then this is a great book for you. You feel like you are acually there with Shari and helping her find out who killed her. It is kind of long but it is the best book I have read.

I am giving this massive piece of literature 3 stars. The first book was pretty good, but under no means I am reading the second or third. I like how the first ended, and I would hate that to be spoiled because the author wanted to continue on something that should not have been continued. Christopher Pike is an amazing author and I will continue reading his Thirst books.

Remember me was such a magnificent story. A definitely MUST READ especially if you're into what happens after death type of genre.
I have to say though that I enjoyed the first two books more than the third one. I feel that the first two were more spiritual and the third one relied more on sci-fi, but overall it was such a great book to read.

“Relationships are mysterious. We doubt the positive qualities in others, seldom the negative. You will say to your partner: do you really love me? Are you sure you love me? You will ask this a dozen times and drive the person nuts. But you never ask: are you really mad at me? Are you sure you’re angry? When someone is angry, you don’t doubt it for a moment. Yet the reverse should be true. We should doubt the negative in life, and have faith in the positive.” 1404 likes
