I enjoyed the narrator’s voice and really liked the different accents and voices she gave to each character. I am definitely a fan of this type of narration, as it helps get into each character separately. The pacing and tone was enjoyable and this was definitely a good commute to work listen.
The story unfolds as our main character Lizzie meets Drew and begins to get flashes of their past life together. Piece by piece she gets the information she needs to believe what is happening and begin to understand her situation. I liked the way the story unfolded, and how she didn’t remember it all right away but only got the glimpses as they mirrored the actions of present day.
What got a bit less enjoyable was the high school double love triangle drama. Lizzie already has a long-time boyfriend. Then she meets Drew, who starts dating her best friend. I’m so not into double love triangle drama so that kind of got a few eye rolls from me as it unfolded.
Now, I would love to see some illustrations of the drawings Lizzie made. I want to see the dress she wore to the Halloween dance, and the dress she remembers at the ball. I’m glad the book covers show the masks because I was so curious to see those as intricately and beautifully they were described.
This book ends well, but you know something bad must be lurking, so I’m curious to finish the rest. A good, overall enjoyable listen. And finally gets me some books on my #shelflove challenge.
I wasn't disappointed. In fact, I was super pleased.
The third grade summary report would read: "A girl meets a new mysterious guy at school and falls in love."
Face it, I wasn't good at summarizing in third grade. Because that describes a lot of books. Among them: The much debated 'Twilight'.
This brings me to point one of what I like about this book.
Point One: Madow writes about a real teenage girl; not a real "literary" teenage girl, who shrinks when the boy of her dreams (or memory) tries to ignore her. When *Spoiler alert from now to a while down* Drew starts his hot and cold act, Liz calls him on it and tells him to cut it out. I loved this, seeing as most books I read have the girl feeling insecure and moping about it.
Point Two: Liz's loyalty to Chelsea is admirable. We've all heard of the girl code, but how often do you read it? She's head over heels in love with this guy, but her best friend wants to go out with him so Liz backs off.
Point Three: I admire the way she snuck the ideas of previous lives well before it became obvious. I found myself understanding Drew's broodiness as frustration without having to be told "Hey, he knows something." It's almost masterful how Michelle snuck that in there.
Few more things: I have a favorite line. It's not a gushy love line, though I had my share of favorites in that category. It's a line that I've thought many times myself.
"It [soccer] would be much more interesting if every so often, the ball spontaneously exploded."
Remembrance would be the perfect book to read after finishing a book that discusses heavy subjects. It is fluffy; it is fantasy; it is fast paced. It has some historical fiction thing going on, and that is a huge plus for me.
It's the best pick me up book to read. I was so hooked that I purchased the sequel as soon as I finished Remembrance; I HAD TO KNOW HOW WHAT HAPPENED NEXT !!!!!
P.S: Remembrance was inspired by Taylor Swift's Love Story music video.
