I picked up Kinsella’s Remember Me? this morning and finished it within a few hours. I couldn’t get myself to put it down. As with all of Kinsella’s novels that I’ve read, this one was great! What I love about her writing is how easy it is to relate to characters and situations. Even if I haven’t been in the exact situation one of Kinsella’s protagonists is in, I find myself relating to her actions or remembering a time when I did something similar.
Remember Me? focuses on Lexi Smart, a 25-year-old woman working as a junior sales associate for a carpet company. Her life, as she puts it, is in shambles. She’s got a crap job, no bonus, her father just died, and to top it all off, she falls after trying desperately to hail a cab after a night of drinking. The next morning Lexi wakes up in a hospital thinking she’s missed her father’s funeral, but she couldn’t be farther from the truth. It’s now 2007, three years after Lexi’s last memory. She finds out she’s had work done, is now the director of the company she once worked for, has lost all her friends, and she’s married to a man she doesn’t recognize. With no memory of the last three years, Lexi must piece together her new life and figure out how she got to where she is.
As with all of Kinsella’s novels, the writing in Remember Me? is fresh, funny, and full of charm. It’s easy to feel for Lexi and cheer her on while she tries to figure out her new life. If you’re looking for a fun and fast read, grab a copy of Remember Me? and happy reading! 🙂
