Description: SHE DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THAT SHE WAS DEAD. When Shari Cooper awoke at home after being at her girlfriend's birthday party, her family acted like she wasn't there. They didn't hear a thing she said. They wouldn't even look at her. Then the call came from the hospital. Her father and brother paled. Her mother started to cry. Shari didn't know what was wrong. Not until she followed them to the hospital. There she found herself lying on a cold slab in the morgue. The police said that it was suicide. Shari knew she had been murdered. Making a vow to herself to find her killer, Shari embarks on the strangest of all criminal investigations: one in which she spies on her friends, and even enters their dreams -- where she comes face-to-face with a nightmare from beyond the grave. The Shadow -- a thing more horrible than death itself -- is the key to Shari's death, and the only thing that can stop her murderer from murdering again.

5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 starsForever a Pike fan...
Posted by Kincaid on 3/6/2006
Christopher Pike...I always wished I could meet this author in person to tell him how profoundly his books touched me. I am glad to see I'm not crazy and that 10-15 years later, I'm not the only one who will never forget his books and still remember the characters as vividly as the very first day I read about them.

I'm 28 years old, now, and still love re-reading this book. It's always been one of my favorites. What could be more intriguing than reading about a young girl, just like I was once, whose life ended too young?

Pike is the reason that I fell in love with reading. I hope that generations of teenagers since have discovered his stories. I'm now interested in reading his work for adults. Even this long after I first discovered his work, I still wish I could see some of his books made into movies.

I first read this book when i was in 6th grade, and I didntfully understand all of its sybols and ideas until after the fourthtime I read it. Yes, I had to read it four times it is so amazing, the way he devolps his characters, and builds of their many intricate and amazing personalities. I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys murder mystery type books because this one is definatly good and suspenceful.

For all the many wonders Pike has written, this is probably my favorite. Although the theme of the book, which is death, may seem a tad jaded and cynical, it is anything but. It offers a unique perspective on the after life; and what being alive truly means. I would say it is the type of book that gives you hope - without coming across as preachy - through the vivid descriptions and solid writing. It is something which touches the optimist in all of us, while still providing fast paced action and suspense.

This book tells the tale of Shari Cooper, a young woman whose life has been cut short after being pushed off a balcony by someone very close to her. She later resurfaces as a ghost, although she doesn't know it as a time. We travel with her as she visits friends and family; puzzling who could have killed this charming young girl.

What I especially liked about the book were the relations that Shari had with each of the individual characters. We really FEEL the close kinship she has with her brother Jimmy, or the brooding angst she had over her ex-boyfriend, Daniel. The characterization is dead on and painfully accurate, as each character has a unique voice in which they weave into the story.

All and all, a delightful tale, worth reading over and over, in my humble opinion. One of the best, you probably won't find something better in the young adult genre, that's for certain.

I wish I could give Remember Me an 11, because it deserves it. This was the first book by Christopher Pike that I ever read and it has hooked me for life. In Remember Me, Shari Cooper is murdered at a party and tries to track down her killer as a ghost. This simple premise leads to all kinds of fun, grief, revenge and compassion. Remember Me is a gripping book that will keep you reading 24 hours a day, yet it is also a book that makes you think and plays on your emotions. Whether you're a first-time reader of Pike or a veteran, I guarantee you will love this book. The sequels--Remember Me 2: The Return and Remember Me 3: The Last Story--won't disappoint you either. (P.S. You might want to set aside a little extra money to buy a second copy of Remember Me because you'll probably wear out the first.

I read this book while going on a vacation because I had nothing else to read... Now I am extremely glad that I did! I have read several of Christopher Pike's books, and I have enjoyed all, but I find Remember Me to be the most intriguing because of his individualistic look into death and the life after. It is a story about a young girl named Shari Cooper who dies and meets her old friend, Peter, who had died earlier. Together, they try to convince a cop who is looking into Shari's death that she did not kill herself and that she was murdered. She faces many dificulties while trying to perform this task including her very close brother's pain of losing her, old secrets about who she really is, and the mysterious way of life after death. Pike introduces many concepts of life and death, especially in the sequals of Remember Me. This is one of the things I enjoyed most about this book. Although it is sad, it helped me realize all the things I want to do before I die. Pike's aspects of life and death are overwhelming but comforting in a way. I think, What if it were true that we can go on and live after death? I think that you should read this book because it provides an excellent story as well as many concepts, ideas, and a happy ending (if there ever was one) about death. Shari Cooper is the perfect character for this book and Christopher Pike is the perfect writer for the job.
