I loved the characters and the build up to the end, which isn’t neatly wrapped. It is worth noting, I think, that whilst Daniel is unquestionably in love with Lucy, he lives each of his life as his own person. First off, this shit is fucking weird. Apart from these obstacles, Daniel is also brasharess by Joaquim, a corrupt soul seeking twisted retribution for old offenses.

Maybe the book didn’t make it all the way across the room, but it was thrust off my lap with a certain amount of ferocity. See you and Ken in 2 weeks.

In “My Name Is Memory”, Daniel has died many times also –but he travels through centuries and around the world That’s when Sophia sees Esme, a psychic. But after years of playing the unassuming companion, he is learning that loyalty has its costs: Nothing I didn’t predict. But much of this book is slow, since there is a lot of history doled out to show the emotional or spiritual connection between Daniel and Sophia. This was what he had. Did the book make you think about the value of the present, or the value of the long view differently?

A sad place maybe, but safe. I am completely confused as to why the hero wrote a letter to his beloved that he didn’t actually send because for reasons unknown, he was unable to, yet he never explained why.

The boy knows the girl but the girl does not remember the boy but feels a strange connection to him. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. While we are rooting for Daniel and Lucy, Brashares does an excellent job outlining the heartbreak and loneliness of continually searching for someone and the alienation of remembering and wanting to hold on to who you were instead of becoming who you are.

It was beautifully written, and I was captivated by the journey of one man traveling through several lifetimes, trying to right the wrongs that he had inflicted upon his one true love. At the outset, this book accepts that when people die, their souls come back as a different person. What I would have liked: Would it have been too much to add in a little humour of light-heartedness for some levity?


The centuries-old background to their story is as compelling as the action in the present and makes their constant near misses tear-provokingly frustrating.

Nme Name is Memory, by Ann Brashares. Read it Forward Read it first. I guess if we really want the sequel to come then we better share this book to other people and encourage them to read this beautiful story.

My Name Is Memory

Okay, I may have smirked in a passionate moment, haha. Did I like this book? Well, Bgashares don’t know for sure. Now, if that was not enough, the twist in the plot had me gasping, squealing and racing to find out what happens next. As he tries to make sense of her tale, William finds himself increasingly distracted.

A love always too short. Do you believe in this idea, which some call karma, that our actions will come back to us? I find that there has been a clear effort on words, rhythm and the musicality of sentences.

My Name Is Memory by Ann Brashares

I found it too simplistic, sometimes repetitive, and almost always the two characters behaved like fifteen-year olds. I wanted to know if they really have the same plot. I was pleasantly surprised. I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed this memort quite a lot. They lived apart in the house that Daddy built for them in the woods with his bare hands.
