Publisher's Summary

Nora Ephron returns with her first book since the astounding success of I Feel Bad About My Neck, taking a cold, hard, hilarious look at the past, the present, and the future, bemoaning the vicissitudes of modern life, and recalling with her signature clarity and wisdom everything she hasn’t (yet) forgotten.

Even as she’s listing “What I Won’t Miss” and “What I Will Miss” - making the final tally - Ephron reaches back to recount falling hard for a way of life (“Journalism: A Love Story”) and breaking up even harder with the men in her life (“The D Word”), a long-anticipated inheritance with entirely unanticipated results (“My Life as an Heiress”), and the evolution, a decade after she wrote and directed You’ve Got Mail, of her relationship with her in-box (“The Six Stages of E- mail”). All the while, she gives candid, charming voice to everything women who have reached a certain age have been thinking... but have rarely acknowledged.

Filled with insights and observations that instantly ring true - and could have come only from Nora Ephron - I Remember Nothing is a pure delight.

    Story
    "Forgettable"
    What did you like best about I Remember Nothing? What did you like least?

    Not really a whole lot of substance here. Read by the author, and although these were stories about her life, she might have included a little more enthusiasm to her stories. The tone was quite matter of fact, leaving some of the very funny stuff bland and dry.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Nora Ephron? Why or why not?

    Let someone else read.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Was I Remember Nothing worth the listening time?

    I enjoyed some of the stories, but the performance left me flat.

    "Whiney and Irritating"

    Maybe I'm just not a fan of Ephron's essay writing style, but I found most of these essays too self-involved to be interesting and too scattered or random to function as a memoir. Also a perfect example of why most writers should leave the narration to the professionals. Her voice makes the writing even more irritating, and sometimes she couldn't even read her own prose to give the right rhythm to the sentences so they were difficult to follow.
    The title essay is amusing, but the rest I had to slog through to be able to discuss at book group.

    "Funny and entertaining for the over-60 crowd"

    I listened to this book on a road trip with my sister, and we got a lot of laughs out of it. If you are of a certain age, this can be most entertaining. Nora Ephron is humorous and has the talent to pick out the little parts of life that change as one gets older. Women will get a kick out of this!

    "Good Ephron"

    Good if brief collection of essays by the writer. Very funny. Wanted more! Also recommend her previous volume.

    "I Remember Nothing: and Other Reflections"

    This book was just so so. I do love the way Nora expresses herself and love the way her mind works and how she can verbalize it, but was kind of boring. Not very funny. Pretty serious. Some of the short stories were amusing but did not keep my interest. Kind of a sleeper. Disappointing. I expected more from Nora. I feel like I know this woman, or would like to know this woman. This book was simply a bunch of "short" stories from her personal life, her relationship with her mother, her siblings, and others...(yawnnnnn)

    "All good stories"

    I especially liked the first and last chapters, about memory and death. The rest of it is a lot of very good, entertaining writing and fun to read.

    "Beautifully written but not laugh out loud funny"

    I loved this book because Nora's writing is so delightful. It feels like she's speaking directly to you - like you're having a private conversation with her about life. However, it should be noted that this is not one of Nora's rollicking comedies, if that's what you are hoping to hear. Her wit is present, of course, but the book is touching more than it is laugh-out-loud funny.

    "Loved this."

    Feel like I miss her although I only know her through her stories. So funny and relatable, even with her exciting life. Thoroughly enjoyed hearing about her life too.

    "I feel like I spent time with my best friend"

    I'm so glad Nora was born and I will always be a little sad she's gone. It goes to show how a piece of your heart can be given away to someone who you've never met.

    If you are a woman in your 60's, it is a humerous look at life.
