Comments for Remember Me?

Remember Me?: 10/09/12

 cover art (Link goes to Powells)Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella is a standalone romantic comedy by the author best known for her Shopaholic series. In it Lexi is trying to peace together the events of the last three years of her life after waking up in hospital with amnesia.

Lexi's last memory is getting in a fight with Loser Dave and falling off the curb after a night of drinking. Now she finds herself married to a real estate developer, living in a posh London flat, the director at a carpeting store and with a whole new set of friends. To confuse things even more, she apparently has a lover on the side — giving her two men who vying to be the one to awaken her memories.

The set up is a bit hokey but Lexi is such a well rounded, believable and sympathetic character that I was willing to go with the set up. Following through with Lexi on her quest to connect with her old friends, to sort out her marriage and to figure out the truth about the possible affairs was completely fascinating and addicting.

Remember Me? though isn't a fantasy romp. Lexi doesn't use her opportunity to stay perpetually 24. Instead, she does her best to be the 27-year-old she was before the accident. There are some heart wrenching scenes too as she tries to come to terms with suddenly (from her current state of mind) being older and changed.

Five stars

I really love Kinsella's standalone novels-this isn't my favorite but it sure is a fun read!

It was my first Kinsella novel but I just finished Twenties Girl and loved that too.
