‘Remember me’ is a very funny and relaxing book. How would you react if you woke up tomorrow having another life, where you have everything you ever dreamed? After surviving a serious car accident, Lexi wakes up in an hospital, with a big piece of her memory lost; she cannot remember what has happened in the last three years, but she discovers that she is a twenty-five-year-old working girl to an impressive corporation, with a personal assistant, a perfect body, glamorous new friends and, above all of that, a gorgeous husband. Will everything she has ever dreamed of bring her happiness? Are we actually aware of what we really want? I grasped an important lesson from this and I invite you to do as well.
I chose ‘The mystery of Mercy Close’ because I knew is the fifth book in the Walsh Saga, thus I expected to have a good laugh. It didn’t disappoint me, but it also brought a very painful experience. Helen Walsh is a Private Investigator who’s sinking. Her work doesn’t go that well, her flat has been repossessed and now her ex-boyfriend is contacting her for a new job. This book was a good stepping stone into really understanding depression. Again, Marian Keyes tells an interesting story about life.
‘Twenties girl’ is an entertaining book about the life of women in the 20s, told in 2012. And the story is not told by anyone, but by a nice, nosy ghost that has an opinion about everything. When the spirit of her great-aunt Sadie appears in the day of the funeral, Lara has one mission: Lara must find a missing necklace that had been in Sadie’s possession for more than seventy-five years, because Sadie cannot rest without it. Together, they will have great adventures, big fights, will find love and most important of all, will understand that live is not as tough as we think it is. I really enjoyed this book.
The literary agent, the client and the friend of the client are the main characters of ‘The other side of the story’. Although it is an easy reading, the story makes you understand that there is not only one point of view in a situation, that we all have our share of justice and, more importantly, everybody’s life seems easy from afar. I liked it, I learned how to see things from different perspectives.
