Remember Me? Review

Title: Remember Me?
Author: Sophie Kinsella
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.

Somehow Lexi went from a twenty-five-year-old working girl to a corporate big shot with a sleek new loft, a personal assistant, a carb-free diet, and a set of glamorous new friends. And who is this gorgeous husband—who also happens to be a multimillionaire? With her mind still stuck three years in reverse, Lexi greets this brave new world determined to be the person she…well, seems to be. That is, until an adorably disheveled architect drops the biggest bombshell of all.

Suddenly Lexi is scrambling to catch her balance. Her new life, it turns out, comes complete with secrets, schemes, and intrigue. How on earth did all this happen? Will she ever remember? And what will happen when she does?

With the same wicked humor and delicious charm that have won her millions of devoted fans, Sophie Kinsella, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Shopaholic & Baby, returns with an irresistible new novel and a fresh new heroine who finds herself in a life-changing and utterly hilarious predicament…







What I Liked:


Writing Style. I loved Kinsella's writing style in this book. She was realtable and it wasn't choppy. It ran smoothly through the story.

Humor. This book was hilarious! It had me in tears, I was laughing so hard sometimes.

The Plot. I love the idea of waking up to a perfect life and having no idea how you got there. Beautiful things, beautiful people, beautiful you. It was all wonderful. Gucci this and Chanel that.

Emotion. Like I said with humor above, this book can make you crack up. But it can also make you cry and rage with anger. I love the way she makes you feel like you are experiencing all of this with Lexi.

Relateable. Lexi was very relatable for me. If I woke up and found out I had a husband, I would have a lot of the same questions she did. My mind would have probably jumped straight to the thoughts that hers did as well, concerning sex and the living situation.



What I Didn't Like:


Eric. His character was just kind of flat. I mean, yes, we get to know him, but he only seemed to have one dimension. Where as the other characters, like Jon, were well rounded. There were some other characters that weren't all that great either, but Eric was the worst of them.


Annoying. There was times in this book that Lexi is just kind of dense. Especially with Amy. Even her 24 year old self should have been able to pick up on what Amy was up to. Sometimes it felt like she was a child. It was very annoying.


The End. I didn't really agree with how this ended. I won't go into it, because I won't spoiler for those of you who might read it, but the ending wasn't for me. This isn't because of the writing or anything, just wasn't something I completely agreed with.



Would I Recommend:



Yes! I would recommend this to any woman who is looking for a funny, light hearted, read.
