Lord Of The Flies 2

660 words - 3 pages

“Shari just stepped onto the balcony for some fresh air, she didn’t mean to fall. Whilst her friends assume it was suicide, she knows otherwise, and now her restless spirit must find the real killer by any means possible. She'll need the help of those she left behind and the only way to reach them now is via the ouija board, but someone or something else seems to want to communicate with her friends too with horrifying intent. Shari is forced down the one pathway left open to her...to enter their dreams.”

I recently discovered that to find the vast intellect to something, the reader has to look at it more than once. The first book in Christopher Pike’s series, Remember Me, was very good the first time I read it. I discovered that the second and third time I read it, I saw all sorts of little meanings hidden in every other sentence. The book ...view middle of the document...

When she wakes up dead from falling off a balcony, not knowing she is dead. Everyone says that she committed suicide. Her brother was the only one that couldn’t believe it. At the party that Shari died at, she was basically dumped by her boyfriend for another girl and learned all the same that her friends had to pushed her of. Although she didn’t know which one, she suspected them all. While being from the other side, she does her best to figure out what happened that night and what went wrong in her life. She wanted more than anything to ease her brother and her parent’s pain. As the truth starts to unravel, she learns that if her life were lived again, she would just want to be remembered. As she goes about finding a way to do that as well as everything else, she feels that she has purpose. She wishes to seek the one who terminated her existence.
a recently deceased 18 year old who has some questions about how she died. Shari also feels that she has a lot of unfinished business, especially as she died so suddenly and at such a young age. Half of the storyline centres around how Shari’s friends and family are coping with her sudden departure while the other half follows a detective as he investigates Shari’s death, not convinced of her suicide, almost like a murder mystery.

“The Return” continues the story of Shari as she finds herself on a new adventure. The story begins exactly a year after Shari’s death when Shari is given the opportunity to return to Earth with a new persona. The only downside is that Shari will not remember her previous life or her time in the afterlife. The story so far has got me interested enough to want to read the second instalment, however there was no perilous cliffhanger that made me need to read on. Part 1 in my opinion mostly set the story so that Part 2 could jump straight in without having to set the story.

There is not much I can say to criticise this series so far, I absolutely love it and have been captivated whilst reading. It truly deserves this re-release 21 years after “Remem
