No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
If you are a Kinsella's fan you won't want to miss it. However, it was not my favorite by far.
This book was good - it seemed a bit tedious to me as I was just waiting: Will she remember? As others point out it is Kinsella's style but the chuckles weren't there as much. When they hit they were hilarious-spit your soda, snorting laughter.
I think I wanted a different ending-but cannot say anymore without spoiling.
When 28-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 25-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?
Absolutely, she is one of my favorite 'Chic Lit' authors. Marian Keyes is my favorite but Sophie Kinsella is a close second!
Yes, she does a fantastic job although she does sound a bit 'old' for these characters at times.
NOTE: Some strong language
I did enjoy the story overall and the journey that Lexi takes is an interesting one. There was a lot more swearing than I would have preferred, so that was a little hard to listen to, but other than that it was an fun story to listen to.
Yes, Sophie Kinsella tells a good story, even if they do seem to follow a bit of a formula. There's a lot of similarity in her characters, but she knows her characters and writes them well.
I read a lot of Agatha Christie and there was some mystery to this story, so it was thought provoking. Sophie Kinsella writes good comedy, not so sure about the mystery. I think that she held too much back for too long.
I could imagine an interesting follow up with her mother, sister and business venture.
Never got into the shopaholic series. Enjoyed this one immensely. I wish she would write more of these kinds of novels.
This is the first time I have review on audible. Although I have listened to some other not so good books, this one takes the cake. So much so, that I am inclined to post my first review. There was nothing likable about the characters, even the heroine. I understand that it may take a while for a the characters and plot to develop but after eight hours of listening it's just too much drab... I am wondering if I listened to the same book the other reviewers listened to. Perhaps, I should have downloaded the abridged version. With that said I did very much enjoy "Can You Keep a Secret" by the same author. I hope this was helpful.
While I am a huge fan of Sophie Kinsella, Remember Me is not my favorite of her books. Overall, though, the story is still entertaining and good for a few chuckles out loud.
I listened to the entire first download before I realized it was a waste of my time. There was nothing to make you like this character and want more. Very disappointed.
I enjoyed this book but it was a bit inconsistent for me. At times I didn't want to turn it off and others I couldn't wait for it to move on.. But overall was good entertainment.
