Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella

I think I am going to end up reading all the books by Sophie Kinsella. At the same time, I do not think she is one of my favorite authors. I enjoyed The Undomestic Goddess very much and Shopaholics series are okay. I really wanted to listen to Can You Keep a Secret? by her but I have to find the audio book for it. In the meanwhile, I decided to read Remember Me?

Remember Me? is about Lexi Smart who wakes up in a hospital after a car accident to find that she has no memory of her past three years. However, in those three years a lot has happened. She became the director of the department she used to work in 3 years back. She now drives a Mercedes. Best of all, she is married to a good-looking millionaire. She realizes that with every good thing, there is something bad. Now she has to work on figuring out her life.

One thing I liked very much about the book that it did not drag. I finished the book in a day and a half. It was a very light read and after listening to The Unnamed and The Little Giant of Aberdeen County, I appreciated this book very much. The personalities of the characters were justified. I was disappointed with one fact but I will not say it here. I think it is a spoiler.

Jon was such a sweetheart. I felt bad for him for a while but I have noticed that Kinsella does not leave her characters stranded. He definitely has a positive ending. Lexi's rich husband is too focused and businesslike to understand relationships. Lexi, the main character, is charming and witty. I felt that Lexi and Samantha from The Undomestic Goddess shared few similarities.

Overall, I enjoyed it. I give this book 8/10.

Fact: Madeleine Wickham goes under the pen name Sophie Kinsella.

I did not know that. Interesting.


Thanks for sharing about this, Tanu. I think I have it on my Kindle. After reading Twenties Girl last year, I want to read more of Sophie Kinsella's books.
