iBooks iPhone App

WIncidentally – the book I’m reading is called My Name Is Memory. I’m totally wrapped up in it at the moment. Have you read it? If so, I’d love to hear what you think about it? (but don’t give away any endings, I’ve only just started reading it and I do intend to finish this one!)

Also, FYI, iBooks is a FREE APP.

    Read it. Loved it! (until the end, which I can’t decide if I like or hate…maybe we can chat when you’re done with it).

    I have a lot of books on past lives and reincarnation, so I was excited when it was published.

    Ooh ooh!!! Sweet! I would definitely love to hear your take on it when I’m done. I did see on the reviews in the iBook store that people generally liked the book but felt the ending was too abrupt and hoped there would be a followup. Hmmm…. (I also saw on the author’s blog that she mentioned someone was looking into possibly making a movie out of it – that would be interesting. I wonder how that would come out)

    Ok finished the book. Like you said – loved the book – but the ending (if you can call it that) was awful!! If she doesn’t come out with a part 2 that RESOLVES the entire point of the story then I swear I think I’ll never read another book by her again. I mean I can accept a less than perfect ending. It doesn’t have to be the typical “and they lived happily ever after” but a real ending – some kind of resolution would be nice. It really felt like there was a few chapters missing.

    That’s exactly what I thought…well, my first thought was…”What?! That’s it?! Man, she’s going to write another book and if she doesn’t I have to come up with the end…there’s an Arthur episode *just* like this…” The rest I loved.

    How did you do with the time/location shifts? I’m reading another one right now that is in the same vein. The Reincarnationist by M.J. Rose, but it has even MORE shifts. I’m only about 1/4 way through, though.

    Time-Traveler’s Wife was my favourite book of that year.

    Relief! Glad to know I was not the only one completely disappointed in the ending but loved the book. I was thinking of trying to contact the author and ask, “What gives?”

    @Jane – The time/location shifts were a bit weird. A little disrupting, but because it was pretty consistent – one chapter now, one chapter in the past, I got used to it quickly. The point of view shifts were a bit weird. I’m reading another book right now (post to come when I’m done with it – It’s called “The Help”) that does similar shifts of point of view.

    I heard good things about the Time Travelers Wife movie – and am tempted to read it. I think that will be the next one I read after the one I’m working on now.

    I’m just so happy to have iBooks on my phone!! It’s been so much easier to read this way! So thrilled to finally be able to take part in these stories. 😀

    @Karen – I’ve had similar thoughts about contacting the author. I’d love to know WHY she chose to end it this way.
