Shari was at a firends house for her birthday party. When most of the guests had left the remaining kids decided to call up the dead. Everything liked they were actually talking to a spirit when all of a sudden Shari decided to break the connection and walked to the balcony for some fresh air. A few minutes later she was found lying at the ground, two floors beneath the balcony. Was it murder or suicide? Shari wakes up the next morning in her bed not sure of what happened. Soon she will figure out she is a ghost. Even though it seems like she is not alone in this world between dead and alive she can't leave until she figures out what happened to her. This was a great ghost/murder-mystery story. It had everything I love in those kind of stories. The friends who all seemed suspicious. It was really hard to figure out how anyone would have killed Shari by their stories. As I kept on reading and guessing, I was surprised that after a few revelations things started making sense, terrifying sense. There is a big secret that readers will unveil by the end of this book that really shocked me. It was a great twist. This book was dark and twisted. Yet, Shari is a character that, to me at least, seemed very pure and good-hearted. I felt sad for what happened to her and by the end of this book I really admired her strength. The Return Part I - Rating: 3.5/5 This is the first half of The Return, book #2 in the Remember Me trilogy. I don't know if it's a pattern of Pike's but just like after reading Chain Letter and its sequel I feel like there was no reason for any more books with the same MC. Shari's story was over in the first book for me. It was a beautiful, yet tragic story. There was truly no need for a sequel. However, I started reading The Return and it wasn't as bad as I expected, still it wasn't as good as Remember Me. Keep in mind that this only about the first half of this book. The story takes a very weird turn. Shari is a ghost but still lingers in our world. She gets a speciel offer, to enter someone else's body, a girl who was about to take her life, and resume living as her. Shari takes the chance and is back in our world. However, for the first half of this book there were a lot of unnecessary philosophical questions posed by Shari and her afterlife 'guide'. A lot of afterlife wonders that I believe make the book slow and a bit boring. Yet, I really want to see how the rest of the story will play out now that Shari is finally back.

    A blast from the past, as enjoyable now as it was then! I really did enjoy this book when I was a teenager.

However, I wondered if it would have the same impact on a 30-something year old woman as it did a hormone-packed teen, so thought I'd revisit it. Glad to say it's still a really compelling, lovely tale. For the uninitiated, this book is about Shari Cooper, a popular teenage girl who takes a tumble at a party. Unfortunately for her, that tumble is off a balcony and kills her. The book then focuses on her experiences as a fledgling ghost, and her attempts to discover who murdered her. I loved the idea of this book - it's such an intriguing angle to write from, and the author does it in a really warm, inventive way. Shari is a feisty, no-nonsense kind of a gal, and I remember really liking that as a teen reader; it was nice to have a female protagonist that wasn't a total submissive boring pushover. There's romance in it too, but kept to pleasantly unsmushy levels. In my opinion, this is one of Christopher Pike's best; up there with the glorious Whisper of Death (or almost, anyway). The second book included in this edition I haven't reviewed (I feel it's a lot weaker) - but buy this book for the first one, it's a great, easy read for teens and grown-ups alike.

    Similar to The Lovely Bones and The Five People You Meet in Heaven, this book follows a person trying to piece together her own death from the afterlife. The evocative writing style and vivid characters really made this book stand out as a great one.

I admit that when I first picked up the book and read the cover I was like; But only a few pages into the story I was hooked. A paranormal that doesn’t have a vampire or werewolf in sight or in mind makes this book stand out among all others. Ok, so here are the main characters and their stories: Shari is the protagonist and the book is written from her POV. Shari comes from a wealthy family that consists of her parents, herself, and her older brother Jim, who she calls Jimmy. She was dating Dan until the night of her party when she was told that he was making out with one of her friends in the hot tub. It was during the last bit of the party where there was only the six of them that her death occurred. Shortly before she died her friend Jo had tried to use her to summon a spirit, the result terrified Shari who felt desperate to get fresh air. It was while she was trying to make sense of what had happed that she was pushed. Jo was Shari’s best friend and is heavily interested in New Age ideas and the occult, often bringing items to parties in order to contact the dead. She also refers to everyone by nickname, everyone but Shari, and her appearance is similar her best friends. Jo also has a crush on Jeff, one of the people who attended the party the night of Shari’s death. Amanda is shy and doesn’t say very much. She was dating Shari’s brother, Jimmy, after the two were introduced to each other by Shari. But shortly after Amanda began to pull away and started to avoid Jimmy. Shari and Amanda got on fine but Shari always felt that Amanda was hiding something from her. Jeff lost his brother, Peter, two years before Shari’s death. Jeff and Shari had an altercation just hours before she died over her boyfriend Dan, who Jeff described as an asshole. Jeff had never gotten over losing his younger brother in an accident and was at the party that night for his girlfriend, Beth, who was the birthday girl. Beth has large breasts and uses them to her advantage, this is one of the first thing we as readers learn. Beth also plays dumb but is quite smart and receives good grades, she’s dating Jeff but is always flirting with Dan, Shari’s boyfriend. Even though she was liked her friends boyfriend and even made out with him, Beth does have a kind heart and grieves for Shari openly. Dan was Shari’s boyfriend but was planning to break up with her for Beth. He seems to prefer having material objects over people and has often ignored Shari in favour of her car, in fact on the night he was picking her up for the party he pays more attention to her car before even looking at her. After Shari’s death Dan continues to hook up with Beth until Beth cuts him off saying that it isn’t right. Jimmy is Shari’s older and only brother. He never gets angry with her even when she is mad at him and he is also the first one to believe that Shari didn’t jump to her death. He often sleepwalks while dreaming and on the night of her death he has a dream that worries him. He loves his sister more than anyone. He is also diabetic and Shari ensures that he stays healthy. Peter is Jeff’s younger brother and one of Shari’s best friends. Peter died in a car accident two years before Shari passed and appears in order to help. At first he tries to get her to move on but when that fails he offers to help. But Peter is keeping something from Shari and that something is tearing him apart. Also, just pointing out, Shari and Jimmy have such a close relationship as siblings to the point that it seems completely unrealistic to me. This may be because my siblings and I are like this: And it could also be that there are only the two of them while there are four of us. But the way that it is written I just find it hard to believe. Sure they fought, or well Shari fought and Jimmy just nodded along, but it just had a fairytale feel to it.

    More of my reviews can be found at Flipping Through the Pages! After reading the Last Vampire series, Christopher Pike has easily become a favourite of mine. Although I’m aware these books have not recently been written (Remember Me was published in 1989), Pike still manages to sound up to date with teenagers and how they behave. Apparently alot of Pike’s work revolves around teenage girls, however he definitely gets away with it. Remember Me is the story of 18 year old Shari Cooper.

Apparently alot of Pike’s work revolves around teenage girls, however he definitely gets away with it. Remember Me is the story of 18 year old Shari Cooper. Shari Cooper has died and is now a ghost. Her death has been labelled as suicide, however, Shari knows different, she knows she was murdered and wants to find out who pushed her over a four-storey high balcony. The ending was a little predictable for me, however, toward the end of the book, there is a huge twist which resulted me in thinking WTF. This is a short review, but all in all, this book was addictive, captivating and relatable. I haven’t yet finished reading the Return part 1 which is included in the above edition. This review will be updated once I finish The Return part 1. [UPDATE] 16/08/2011 So I just finished reading part one and part two of The Return. Many people in reviews I’ve read have said they don’t like the new age ideas that are in the book, however, I really enjoyed the new age theme with things such as meditation and the afterlife present throughout the book. The Return is based around the story of Shari Cooper, however, Shari has a chance to return to a body on Earth as a ‘wanderer’, the only catch is that she will not remember anything of her life prior to her death or the afterlife. Shari returns to the body of an 18 year old Hispanic girl named Jean Rodrigious. Part one, in book one confused me a little as I felt each chapter was a bit jumpy, in between Shari’s experience in the afterlife where time doesn’t matter and Jean’s “current” life, it felt as if there was no flow between the chapters. However, once you get used to it and you get used to it by part two), I think it’s an excellent story. The last few chapters of The Return shocked me incredibly and loved the twists and turns this book had. I have began reading The Last Story and will update you when I’ve finished that :)

    This is the first book & a half of a trilogy. The first book really gripped me, & I read it fairly quickly - the characters were interesting, & the storyline was intriguing. However, when it got to reading the first half of the second book (the trilogy is completed in another volume) I struggled to retain interest. The introduction of new, completely unrelated (to begin with) characters was awkward, & the characters themselves weren't all that interesting.

I actually left this book for a long time, as I could not finish it, & it was only today when I decided I had to complete it that I read the remaining 10 or so pages. I'm not sure if I will read the rest of the trilogy at the moment, but I would imagine that it will eventually be read - I'm not a huge fan of giving up on books completely, even if I'm not enjoying it all that much.

    This was an extraordinary read. On the one hand, it read almost like a thrilling who-dunnit, as the dead heroine tried to find out who killed her, and on the other it was a pretty scary read (particularly at the beginning and particularly if you're up late an night in a quiet house with your back to a doorway). The heroine's journey through the novel was believable; she said and did things that I could imagine doing and and saying and thinking if I were in her situation.

The Return, Part 1 is linked to the story, but it's in a league of its own. It's more philosophical and looks at what life after death might be like. All in all, I was completely taken by surprise in a very nice way.

    I rarely read books written by male authors but I liked Christopher Pike's The Last Vampire series so I thought i'd give this one a go. I wasn't expecting to like it but I DID! I was kept entertained throughout the whole book & I found that the story really made me think about what it would be like to die! My favourite character was the main one, Shari Cooper. She was hilarious at times with her witty sarcasm. I also really liked her brother Jimmy too.

    Remember Me, was one of those hard-to-put-down books where the traumatic and compelling story of Shari hooked me to read more. Her loving and innocent character made me smile throughout the whole book despite the grief stricken story line, but has also lured me to read the sequel. This book I would definitely recommend, not just because it's riveting fiction, but also because it takes Shari on a quest that concludes with an expected ending.

    Hmmm... Rather Liked this one, saw some similaerities with The last Vampire series but it was a pretty good plot. Despite the fact that the authors loves his prose and new age beliefs. Ah well, I did like it, a nice, light read.

    The "who dunnit" of the spirit world was interesting. Even though she died, she had adventures and a mission to find out if she jumped or was pushed. Loved the twist NO SPOILERS HERE. Towards the end it turned too "out there".. New age ideas are fine, but too much for me, WAY too deep.

    Meh. I got his book and the second in the series on sale and it looked quite interesting! The plot was gripping but the second book was really confusing. It was hard to keep up with but I still read it anyway. I hope the rest of the series is more interesting and simpler to read :)
