but I did Sense 8 , the T.
V Series which I LOVE , meets Life after Life , by Kate Atkinson, which I didn t love In Life After Life , Ursula died so many times ongoing endless repetition deaths was often like nails on a chalkboard irritating In My Name Is Memory , Daniel has died many times also but he travels through centuries and around the worldand we travel with him His unique talent is that he can remember his past lives and the woman he s loved through them all This is a love story Ann Brashares creates an enchanting romantic world that s a little bit whimsical yet believable in its own way as the characters are irresistible Credit definitely goes to author, Ann Brashares In less talented h Brashares took a fantastic and intriguing idea and ruined it Here are the ways this story is pathetic Brashares has the freedom to put her characters in any time period, location, and situation, yet she never gives Daniel and Lucy a convincing love story There s absolutely no substance or reason to their attraction Such as their first encounter A simple view of this girl, and Daniel is ready to spend miserable lifetime after miserable lifetime being, well, miserable because he can t be with a girl he foundbeautiful That s it But on the other hand, neither character is particularly interesting, so maybe there s not much to find attractive Daniel brooding, obsessive, quick to cry, and likely to quit when things get difficult Lucy submissive, passive, equally obsessive, and lacks concern for anyone other than a boy she barely knows Even disapp Oh, I sure hope this is part of some kind of series because I was totally in love with this book until the end And the end sooooo irritated me that I literally threw the book down I don t do that I love books I love great stories And I loved this story it s such a unique look at how a relationship functions Main character Daniel, a dude who can remember his past lives In love with Sophia Charlotte Lucy, who cannot remember her past lives Struggle he needs her to remember him Trouble Joachim, former older brother who tends to torture kill Daniel whenever he can and follows D throughout history See what I mean This is a killer set up Awesome in its creativity Fun to read for three hundred of the three hundred and five pagesbut then it falls flaton a cliffhanger.
Say it with me Augh I haven t been able to find out if this is a series GAAAR Are you kidding me I m still expecting Ashton Kutcher to pop out of my closet to declare I ve been punk d.
This could have easily been a 5 star book if not for the ending I ve never been so dissatisfied Yes, I still give it 4 stars because it was brilliantly written, romantic, emotionally gripping I loved the characters and the overall story that was told hereagain, up until like the last two pages Seriously Would it have hurt Brashares to add, I don t know, thirty pages to clear things up I m normally open to, well, open endings But this This ending literally made me growl my displeasure with its lack of closure It should be illegal to end a book this way WHY Okay, I m ranting Did I like this book I loved it I would have loved it though shakes fists towards the heavens Would I recommend this book to others Sure, if My Name Is Memory is a love story unlike any I have ever known Ann Brashares unravels her tale a bit at a time and toys with her audience much like a cat bats a ball of yarn We are tossed to and fro throughout the ages clinging to the memories of Daniel a soul who is both blessed and cursed with the incredbile ability to remember all of his many lives as he is reincarnated over centuries Daniel s stories pull us into the ancient worlds of Northern Africa and Crete, to the not so distant past of war torn England during the first world war, and finally into the modern east coast of the US His accounts are tethered by the same forces that have always driven the human race love and vengeance.
In each of his lives Daniel strives to find Sophia, his first love and original sin By turn of fate, he succeeds in finding her many t OH MY GOD This book was EVERYTHING and It has left my brain stunned at it s utter genious, which is why this review probably wont be very coherent, but who am I kidding there is no way I could caption this brilliance that is this book anyway.
So I wont say much I will just say this From the very first pages I was encaptured by this book loving the writing, and intrigued by the story And as the story moved along, spinning pieces together, I just fell in love with it Madly Deeply THE CHARACTERS Felt real to me They werent flawless, they made mistakes, had regrets, and they grew I could very much relate to them, and both Lucy and Daniel had my respect and support I felt I was loving, learning and agonising right along side with them THE ROMANCE Well built, realistic and not overly romantised Lucy and Daniel hasnt met or hooked up in every life, and there are a lo
5 StarsRomance A Thon New Adult Romance Summer A Thon A Beachy ReadWell.
That was anticlimactic The entire time I was reading this book I thought I would give it 3 3.
5 Stars because I was enjoying it and I totally shipped this couple Then it ended I mean the book just ended out of no where The entire last 100 pages was leading up to this showdown between two particular characters no spoilers and then right when we were getting to that, the book just ends WHAT THE LITERAL FUCK Ann Brashares couldn t have written another 30 pages Why introduce this showdown, if we weren t gonna get to see it play out I m annoyed Love who you love while you have them That s all you can do Let them go when you must If you know how to love, you ll never run out Love demands everything, they say, but my love demands only this that no matter what happens or how long it takes, you ll keep faith in me, you ll remember who we are, and you ll never feel despair You have been with me from the very first life You are my first memory every time, the single thread in all of my lives It s you who makes me a person No big deal, that blubbering heap over there is just me after finishing My Name Is Memory trying to put my heart back together I ve been on the hunt for a sweet romance to lighten up the thriller suspense trip I ve been on and this couldn t have been a better choice I won t reiterate the synopsis but Daniel and Lucy s story is a beautifully heart breaking one The POVs switch between Daniel and Lucy and follow them throughout all of their many lives Daniel who is able to remember those lives and continually fights to find Lucy and Lucy who continually forgets with each rebirth I loved this story for many reasons, but my favorite was perhaps that while there have been many books on love that lasts through the ages this one managed to be unique and exciting none the less While we are rooting for Daniel and Lucy, Brashares does an excellent job outlining th
