remember me by sophie kinsella

Lightweight, but great fun,

Lexi wakes up in hospital after a car accident. She's lost all memory of the last three years and is amazed at how her life has changed: suddenly she's married to a gorgeous guy, she's running her department at work and on paper her life suddenly seems perfect. But slowly she starts to realize that things are not quite as wonderful as they initially appeared to be. For starters, her best friends seem to have distanced themselves from her. And her husband Eric doesn't really seem to be her type.

This is a fast and fun book to read. The premise hooks you in and some parts are laugh out loud funny (particularly when Lexi realizes why her husband keeps making the Mt Blanc references). Okay, so it doesn't stretch your brain too much and you need to suspend your disbelief that she would have made some of the changes in her life, but overall it's still very entertaining. A perfect holiday read.

This is the third Sophie Kinsella book that I've read, and while I enjoyed it, I don't think it's as good as her others. If you like her books you'll enjoy this too, but if you're new to her as an author I think her others are better.

thickest book i've ever read. never knew that it has a bigger version of this (i mean the book is big). the English is easy to understand ( i'm not so good in english!). i enjoyed this so much. like the part that Jon has this small garden of sunflower, the sign of their love that lexi couldn't remember at all. it's so romantic. as i posted before, the story line is more or less like 13 going on 30 or couple of fantasy. it's just in different version and the ending is a lot different too. i might buy other book by kinsella, it seems that her others are better (tiru ayat di atas ;P).
