Remember Me? – A Review

Posted in books., interests. by Lex on November 15, 2009

What if .. you remember yourself living in 2004, working in a crappy job with no Christmas bonus, with bad teeth and nails, cheap boots that murders your toes .. and suddenly wakes up in 2007 in a hospital bed with a Louis Vuitton bag, a gorgeous, multimillionaire husband, a stylish loft, free carb diet, and  a Mercedes?

Just imagine Lexi Smart’s reaction and feelings. Imagine yourself in her shoes. Me? I’d be the happiest. But not until I step inside the office again with no memories of previous meetings and of important people and places.

In business, three years is long, very long. And it’s no easy job to learn everything that happened in the past three years and keep your chin up and position away from predators who try to take advantage of your situation.

How much more if you remember your self hanging out with your best friends and then find them way different from what you remember them? How do you win their trust back without feeling stupid? How do you prove that you weren’t the bitch-boss-from-hell?

And then some hot Architect named Jon spills the biggest bean in your life? That you have a secret affair with him, that you planned schemes to hide the truth, that you weren’t happy with your gorgeous multimillionaire husband, that you used to have dates together, that he knows more about your life this past three years. But how would you trust someone you remember wasn’t part in any page in your life? How would you know if he’s lying or saying the truth?

Poor Lexi has to deal with all these.

Remember Me? was a beautiful story. It was thrilling to read about how Lexi was once down there is now up here. I was rooting to know more about how Lexi would regain her memories and who would help her. I wanted to know how she’d regain the lost friendship with Fi and the others. I wanted to know she would prove herself to the heads in her office.

Eric, her husband, was a weird man. He gave Lexi a Marriage Manual so she’d remember how they do things together. He is weird in bed. His Mont Blanc was the weirdest. He is so uptight about cleanliness and that Lexi should follow their carb-free diet.

Jon on the other hand was suspicious but cool. On his first meeting with Lexi, he was obviously hurt for Lexi does not remember one bit about him. Probably because he was the most important memory, that was the most affected. I was surprised when Jon showed up and straight forwardly told Lexi that he loves her and that she loves him. I was surprised with all the revelations that Jon spilled. It was the most bizarre. Like he could be lying or he could be sincere.

Another surprising things that Jon revealed to Lexi were her possessions on his house. Lexi knows for herself that the toaster was hers. That the other things she found in his room were hers. That the Sunflowers meant something. That surely, these things did. But she couldn’t comprehend why he would cheat and be untruthful to a man she vowed she’d love for ever.

Would she believe Jon? Or would she not?

Remember Me? was a fun read and I most enjoyed it. From the beginning of the book until the last when she remembers a vital piece of memory which involved Jon. With 430 pages, I finished it in 6 hours for I really cannot put it down. As if I’d lose my head too if I put this book down. I wanted to know more.

For sure, Remember Me? are already one of the books standing on your bookshelves. After all, it’s one of Kinsella’s babies. If not, then what are you doing?

Ratings: 4.5 out of 5!

    I don’t mind kids asking for cash so they can buy what they want.
