Read reviews from the world's largest community for readers. A compelling and perceptive tale of intimacy, memory and . A compelling and perceptive tale of intimacy, memory and relationships from the No.1 bestselling myavr.info can you know someone you've never met?.
Where I always used to hide and where he always found me. When nothing was impossible and when the three of us, together forever, was a given.
Justin is visiting Dublin to give a lecture on art and is persuaded to give blood. Joyce has just awoken after a terrible accident which has caused her to lose her baby and, by the looks of it, her marriage too. After the accident she has a blood transfusion to save her life and suddenly remembers things that have never happened to her, and information she didn't know before.
The pair have never met and yet are magically drawn to one another, due to Justin's blood saving Joyce's life. Both Joyce and Justin have become despondent with their lives; Joyce moves in with her father after the accident and her marriage falls apart. Justin is divorced and spends most of his time traveling around giving lectures to students that he feels really aren't that interested.
Their paths cross several times throughout the story, and each time they meet they become ever closer. I cried and I laughed more than I thought I would. The narrative is somewhat predictable and the story got slow and boring at times, but Thanks for the Memories is still a compelling read and makes for a delightful, if somewhat unbelievable, love story. If anybody asked me what three things I'd like to take with me on an island, I would say 2 books and a sunscreen lotion.
The reason I bought this book was P. I Love You, the movie. How that happens is a bit out of the ordinary and without giving too much away I can safely say it was quite fun to read as Joyce decided to follow her instincts and walk the path that would eventually take her to Justin.
All in all an entertaining read, just perfect for a day on the beach under a big tree with the sun winking cheerfully through the leaves above and the sound of the waves in the background. Apr 24, Marty rated it it was ok Shelves: Honestly, I wasn't a huge fan of this book.
It took me a while to figure out what the problem was, because it's not that Ahern can't write. The prologue is beautifully written and sets up an intriguing mystery.
Who is this woman? How pregnant is she? Has she lost the baby? How did she fall down the stairs? Who was on the phone? I couldn't wait to get into the book and find out what happened. And then - I just didn't believe it.
And I'm not even talking about the plot, as implausible as it is. B Honestly, I wasn't a huge fan of this book. Boy donates blood, girl gets boy's blood after falling down the stairs, girls suddenly has all of the dude's memories. The problem was that I didn't believe the characters, at all. They didn't seem like real people, they seemed like devices to churn the plot. I feel the need to give examples of what I mean, though they probably will seem petty.
Joyce's dad is described as having planned his entire life out, yet when they're in London doesn't know how to pack a suitcase and makes a disaster of it. It seems like anyone who is all about organization should be able to fold his clothes and put them in a bag. Joyce, on the other hand, is described as just rushing into things in life without thinking them through - yet she's spent the past ten years redecorating her house in a loveless marriage.
So, she flies by the seat of her pants, but no affairs or other craziness outside of choosing drapes in all those years of boredom?
Other stupid things that annoyed me: Justin, the boy blood donor, makes a slightly cheeky remark at an elderly lady in the dentist waiting room. Her response is to throw a magazine at his head. That's just not really something people do, and Justin appears unsurprised and just keeps walking away. Then, Joyce again. She miscarries in the middle of her second trimester, and in one scene there is very detailed description of her pulling on her jeans.
I could go on, but I suspect I'm the only one who would be interested. Other that all that crap, though, there are other really well-written pieces sprinkled throughout the novel. At one point Ahern describes staring into a mirror, how your face looks like a stranger's. I never knew other people did that. The grieving that Joyce does for her baby, including her wanting to just be alone and feel self-pity - that was great.
Not for Joyce, but you know what I mean. And the way Joyce and her dad talk about slowing down and enjoying the present rang very true for me. So, in summary, eh. It wasn't my favorite, and I wouldn't recommend it to most people I know - though I do know a few that would probably really like it. Feb 04, Jamieson rated it it was amazing.
After a horrible accident, Joyce Conway is trying to put her life back together. Her life and her marriage are in pieces, but Joyce tries to get back to living a normal life, despite advice from others.
But something is stopping her. She keeps having dreams of a beautiful blond haired girl, of places she has never been. She sees a beautiful woman in her dreams.
Thanks for the Memories
Joyce sees and knows things she should not know. And it all started aft After a horrible accident, Joyce Conway is trying to put her life back together. And it all started after her accident.
Wanting to get to the bottom of things, to discover the reason for her newfound knowledge, Joyce tracks down her blood donor… Justin Hitchcock is a lonely man. Instead, he contends himself with touring universities, talking about art, about the only thing he has passion for in life. When a beautiful woman convinces Justin to give blood for the universities blood drive, Justin has no idea that giving away a few drops of his blood will change his life forever. He has no idea that by giving something from his heart, he may receive the very things he needs to heal it… I have been a long time fan of Cecelia Ahern since her novel P.
I Love You. I also never miss an episode of her hit show, Samantha Who. Well, with Thanks for the Memories, the impossible has indeed happened! This is a heartwarming, laugh out loud romantic comedy that has everything you could want: Thanks for the memories is a magical, incredible read that will hook you from the first page and not let go. I normally enjoy Cecelia Ahern's books. Firstly, she writes with elegance, humour and skill; and her books draw you in to a world that is often strange and whimsical, but nonetheless very real and believable.
I liked the sound of this one - the little teasers piqued my interest and I thought 'this sounds good'. It started well, good character development and scene setting so that I was drawn in very quickly.
I just lost interest or perhaps concern about the characters. I just did not ca I normally enjoy Cecelia Ahern's books. I just did not care what happened to them. It was okay - a great beach read - but I was disappointed. So much so, that I abandoned it half way through and returned to it many weeks later! I never do that with books so I am mystified. It might just be me so I am reluctant to condemn it but I just could not get excited. Aug 06, Shweta rated it it was amazing. Easy, enjoyable read.
Fans of Cecelia Ahern would love it. Apr 10, Elaine rated it liked it. She now likes ballet and opera. Heck, she is even eating meat again after years of being a vegetarian! He keeps bumping into her and losing her time and time again and the story really has you wondering whether or not they will ever get to meet each other and get to know each other properly. Oct 27, Tracey Gass rated it did not like it. A bookclub choice that I was excited about reading after not reading a romantic novel for ages!
I read the whole thing but the story was so unbelievable that I actually got so irritated with it but at the same time was being lightly entertained and had to finish it to see what happened in the end. When I was younger I used to devour these kinds of books and read one after the other but maybe my tastes have changed and I'm not such a romantic anymore?!
How sad! I normally rate books well if I l A bookclub choice that I was excited about reading after not reading a romantic novel for ages! I normally rate books well if I learned something while reading it and I didn't learn anything from this book! My favourite parts of the book was the relationship that Joyce has with her father and their visit to London and the Antiques Roadshow was amusing so it wasn't all bad. Feb 13, Emily Obsessed Reader rated it really liked it. I really enjoyed this, and every time I read a Cecelia Ahern book I am reminded why I love her writing so much.
I listened to the audio book of this, and I thought it was excellent. I actually tried to read part of the physical book myself after listening to the audiobook, and I found that I actually preferred listening to the voice of the narrator of the audiobook.
I didn't give the book a full five stars, though, just because it is completely unrealistic and is more fun than believable. Also, I wasn't a huge fan of Justin, and I felt like he spent the majority of the book saying sorry for being a kind of sucky person.
Anyway, it was a fun story that kept me interested and had me laughing, feeling sad, excited, joyful, etc. Nov 26, Mo rated it liked it Shelves: I am not drawn to books with magic realism, but if well written I don't mind the genre.

Thsi novel just could not keep me interested. When I no longer care where a novel goes I am done with the book. Forcing myself to read something I am not liking lead to reviews like this. I think this is it for me with Cecelia Ahern's books. I would try something that doesn't have magic realism or if something real catches my eye.
Dec 06, Voolaa P rated it liked it Shelves: It was an easy read and a sweet story, though most of the time it felt like the narration was focused more on the relationship between Joyce and her father than the actual story between the two protagonists, Joyce and Justin.
Although the events are kind of surreal and not scientifically proven it's an honorable attempt at pointing out the strong connection that two people, with very little in common, may share for, sometimes, unknown reasons.
Cecelia Ahern created this book as if the readers were watching an film, the action, the instant changes among scenes and characters, that kind of brought to my mind films like "Serendipity" and "In your eyes". In the end the story seemed a little rushed to me and left me quite emotionally hanging but on the whole it was a really enjoyble book!
Also recommendable for doses of laughter where Joyce's adorable old father is involved! Maybe my favourite character in the book! Su sola presencia hizo que quisiera seguir leyendo. La van a disfrutar mucho. Feb 05, Cintya Larasinta rated it it was amazing Shelves: Di bagian Akhir yang penuh mengejutkan dan mengharukan, hampir saja aku menangis hal itu. Aku suka semua karakter dalam Thanks for the memories ini.
Apalagi Henry Conway, ayah Joyce yang lucu, perhatian, kocak. Seakan2 Aku terhanyut dunia Joyce dan ayahnya. Aku merasakan itu amat senyatanya. Sukaaaa sekali Joyce dan Justin. Sep 11, Farah rated it really liked it Shelves: Empat puluh tahun. Duda cerai dengan satu anak. Professor dalam bidang Art and Architecture.
Sinis, sedikit egois, childish, bitter. Dengan semua masalah yang dihadapinya, pengalaman pertamanya dalam mendonorkan darah mengubah semuanya. I want to feel sorry for myself wi "So what's the point in saving someone's life if they don't even know you're the one who saved them?
I want to feel sorry for myself without sympathetic words and clinical explanations. I want to be illogical, self-pitying, self-examining, bitter and lost for just a few more days, please, world, and I want to do it alone.
Tiga puluh tiga tahun. Pernikahannya diambang perceraian. Tidak bahagia menjadi alasan terbesarnya, kemudian bayi yang telah ditunggu-tunggu selama ini harus pergi karena kecelakaan yang dialaminya.
Hidupnya berubah setelah kecelakaan itu. Be patient and tough; someday this pain will be useful to you. Tujuh puluh lima tahun. Ayah yang menyayangi putrinya, dan mengingat mendiang istrinya, dengan caranya sendiri.
Terkadang salah memanggil Joyce dengan Gracie, nama mendiang istrinya. He liked to see them on the shelf when he opened the cupboard, liked to see her magazines beside his newspaper. He liked her slippers staying beside her armchair by the fire. He liked to remind himself that his entire world hadn't fallen apart. Sometimes we need all the glue we can get, just to hold ourselves together. I fold my arms and look away, silently fuming. Dad leans closer and nudges me.
I immediately feel guilty for wishing that on him. Everything grows. Including love. And with that growing everyday how can you expect missing her to ever fade away? Everything builds, including our ability to cope with it. That's how we keep going. Membaca buku ini, gue bisa ikut menangis merasakan kepedihan, terharu atas kekuatan cinta, hingga tertawa sampai keluar air mata membaca kekonyolan-kekonyolan tokoh Henry Conway. Ide ceritanya sungguh menarik. Cukup familiar. Terasa begitu nyata dengan semua rasa sakit dan cinta yang dituliskan dilembar-lembarnya.
Seakan-akan kita adalah bagian dari ceritanya. Tidak banyak penulis yang bisa menghanyutkan pembaca seperti halnya Cecelia.
See a Problem?
Tapi buat gue, jalan cerita yang awalnya begitu nyata ini mulai terasa fiktifnya saat Joyce mengirimkan tiket opera kepada Justin melalui perantara Thomas. Sampai disini, gue langsung berasa antiklimaks. Seperti halnya kita sedang melamunkan hal-hal yang indah, begitu indah sampai terasa seakan-akan nyata, tapi kemudian dengan satu kedipan saja semua kembali ke dunia nyata. Tapi ini menjadi salah satu buku favorit gue lagi dari Cecelia Ahern. Kalau bukan untuk membaca kisah Joyce dan Justin, pasti untuk 'menghidupkan' Henry Conway di dalam kepala gue.
Dibawah adalah potongan dialog saat Henry dan Joyce terbang ke London, dan ini adalah pengalaman pertama bagi Henry. Di bagian ini gue ketawa ngakak kenceng banget jam 2 malem.
I didn't know. Can I have a drink of water? Nanti kalo dilanjutin yang ada gue nyalin satu buku disini hahaha.. Buku yang gue baca ini sebenernya jadi satu sama buku A Place Called Here. Jadi 2 books in 1 gitu. Makanya jumlah halamannya banyak. Tapi di Goodreads, belum ada edisi bukunya.
Jadi sementara dibuat terpisah dulu. Foi este pequeno pormenor que me fez arrastar a leitura do livro Acho que a narrativa ficaria mais completa se o relacionamento de Justin e Joyce tivesse um desenvolvimento. Assim sendo, considero este aspecto como o ponto menos positivo. View all 9 comments. Apr 11, Angie rated it it was amazing. This book sucked me right in from the riveting 3 page prologue, powerfully, painfully written. While the premise of the book is pretty out there and far-fetched, it was written so convincingly that I couldn't help but be drawn into the lives of the two main characters and found myself blasting through the book to see how it would end.
When the characters' hearts were racing I found my own heart beating faster, too. With each missed connection I groaned and sighed in my mind. Reading this book wa This book sucked me right in from the riveting 3 page prologue, powerfully, painfully written.
Reading this book was quite an emotional ride. On top of the mysterious connection and romance angle of the book, I found the supporting characters to be really enjoyable. I found this to be a totally delightful read, touching and humorous, romantic and exciting. It should be noted, for those who are sensitive, that there are a handful or so of "F Bombs" in this one.

The story really hums though, with the relationship portrayed between Joyce and her dad, it's priceless. I wanted to read something that I would definitely like. It is also a discussion for another day, Dr. And with that growing everyday how can you expect missing her to ever fade away? It's kinda different romance but is cute and I enjoyed reading it!
Fans of Ahern's earlier work won't be disappointed with the fairy tale—like feeling, but readers not already in the fold might not stick around to the obvious conclusion.
