Daniel and Lucy's story is of a fantastic nature. The premise is predicated on the idea of reincarnation which, whether you believe in it or not, lends a supernatural element to the tale. The themes of love, loss and danger, however, are what grounds it in reality and what, in my opinion, makes it truly awe-inspiring.
What I loved most about this book were the flashbacks, which were mostly told from Daniel's viewpoint. Brashares's premise isn't all that unique. There are plenty of love stories about people who have loved each other across time and space. They often fail, though, by not adequately drawing these potentially epic relationships. My Name is Memory excels at this. Not only do we get a complete understanding of why and how these two individuals came to love each so much, but we also are treated to wonderfully illustrated historical backdrops and landscapes. The rich settings go a long way in enhancing the overall story.Read more ›
Daniel's memory comes from his love of Sophia, as if he wills himself to remember everything about her. His love and fate lead Daniel to retain these memories each time he is reborn. Somehow Daniel and Sophia are reborn within similar times. They encounter each other in different cultures and continents over 1,500 years. Daniel remembers his past lives starting from when he first met Sophie in 520 A.D. to each of his reincarnations. In all the different reincarnations, Daniel knows Sophia. But equal to his joy in finding her is his disappointment that Sophia never recognizes Daniel.
Daniel learns how to carry over skills and wealth from one life to another. He's skilled in medicine, in business, and in most trades. In each rebirth, Daniel prepares to meet Sophia and with each new encounter he is equally surprised and moved.Read more ›
I am an independent author. As far as sales go, my numbers are pretty great... for an indie. But compared to traditionally published authors? Forget about it. I'm not even a drop in the ocean. For me, 200 ratings is fantastic. But compared to this book's 22,000? Those are stats that I don't even dare to hope for. But because I am an indie, I get to keep writing. I get to see my stories through to the very end.
Apparently traditionally published authors don't share that luxury.
Daniel and Lucy's story is far from over. Their book ended with no real resolution. **SPOILERS** Joaquim is still out there and still looking for Lucy. Lucy is pregnant and in hiding. Daniel doesn't know about the baby. He can't be with her until he takes care of Joaquim once and for all.
I've spent the last half hour reading reviews and message boards, trying to figure out how this book isn't part of a series. Lo and behold, it was originally supposed to be. But since it didn't become a bestseller, the publisher decided against it.
This is why money should not dictate art. This story is not finished. These character's lives still hang in the balance. Daniel has been waiting thousands of years to be with Sophia, and when he finally gets the chance… It ends. Unresolved.
I don't think words can adequately express what I would do for even a thousand ratings, let alone 22,000. That those numbers are not enough for someone astounds me. I do not blame Ann Brashares in the least. She's written an amazing book. Several amazing books, for that matter.Read more ›
