My Name is Memory is rated 4.2857 out of 5 by 7.
The latest from Ann Brashares, the New York Times bestselling author of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, a magical story of reincarnation and a love that lasts more than a lifetime

Daniel has spent centuries falling in love with the same girl. Life after life, crossing continents and dynasties, he and Sophia (despite her changing name and form) have been drawn together-and he remembers it all. For all the times that he and Sophia have been connected throughout history, they have also been torn painfully, fatally, apart.

But just when Sophia (now "Lucy" in the present) finally awakens to the secret of their shared past, the mysterious force that has always separated them reappears. Ultimately, they must come to understand what stands in the way of their love if they are ever to spend a lifetime together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a MUST READ novel! I read this book a year ago, and I CANNOT stop thinking about it. It has changed my view on incarnation and life. Although I don't believe that one will ever remember his past lives, but I do believe that one can recognize souls, and true love takes many lives to work out. This book is very inspiring and I am Looking forward to a 2nd one. I want to know if he will end up going back to her, or if he's gonna die, and they will have to find their way to each other in their next lives. This is  such a tease!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Pretty Good Book. I really did enjoy reading this book, however, I felt that I could not come to love this book. The concept is so riveting and unique, but I found the story to be a little slow. Also, I did not connect all that well with the characters which lead me to enjoy the plot, but not the overall story. I was amazed at how Anne Brashares crafted this novel. Her writing and the way in which the narration was carried out was very well done. Readers are given a chance to fly back and fourth through time and witness a love story that is unlike any other. I found it fascinating how we met one character, but saw him in multiple different places in the span of one hundred pages. I was in awe of the richness and depth that the plot held. Anne Brashares did a wonderful job of transporting us into different time periods while still being able to keep a tight grip on her plot. I just really wished that I could have connected with the characters and the plot a little more, if I had, this would be a five star book. Those of you who are fascinated with the idea of reincarnation, I really think this would be a fantastic book for you. At the same time, we read about a love story that tries to defy all logic and time. This is the story of one boy is determined to find the girl he met centuries ago. Daniel is one of our main characters. He has the incredible ability that allows him to remember all of his past lives. On the inside, he has been Daniel for centuries. He still remains the same because he can identify the reincarnations that took place. When he dies, he isn't gone for long. Daniel will then live in another century, just in a different body. His memories, feelings, identity, personality all remain intact . . . because he remembers them. We learn that Daniel is on a mission. One that requires him to find the girl he fell in love with. She was his first love. Daniel struggles to find the girl he met years ago and to see who she really is behind the body she has reincarnated into. The problem is, is that she cannot remember her past lives. Daniel's quest to find her becomes much more complicated as fate seems to tear them apart time after time. He must find her and deal with the fact that a man from the past has a plan of his own. Oblivious to their past lives, Sophia does not remember the boy who is in love with her. Daniel does whatever he can to fight fate, and be with Sophia before it's too late. 3.5/5 2011-040

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strongly recommend This is my first Ann Brashares book, and I'm writing this only a few hours after I finished reading the book. What first brought me to this book was the cover, it is so beautiful. Don't judge a book by it's cover right? Well let me reassure you, you will not be disappointed by the story itself. One thing I loved about the Author, is how she ended each chapter with either a important or beautiful phrase or a beautiful quote by the characters. It takes me a lot to call something my ''favourite''. In a the things that I love, a few will only get to be more special and be labeled as my ''favourite''. So, this book will definitely be one of my favourite books for sure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from sounds alot like "fallen" by lauren kate "i haven't read the book yet, but the synopsis sounds alot like the book fallen by lauren kate which i have read. right up to the names of the characters. so i'm a little puzzled. below are the novels by lauren kate so if you want to take a look at them then go ahead." (unrated) well, it was really good after all and nothing like the fallen series by lauren kate. gave you a different outloook on life and it was really quite interessting. everything was well planned out and well developped and I loved Daniel as the main character. i could go on and on but you probably don't want to hear that. so definitively worth reading. the only critisism was that the ending was a little weak but other than that I loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended ***MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS*** Let me start by saying that I really hope there is a sequel to this book. Let me also say that I have the worst memory in the world. My Name is Memory is quite a unique book. The main character is Daniel and he can recall all of his past lives. His love interest comes back in each life but he has to get her to remember him since they’ve lived so many lives together. The back and forth between lives is very reminiscent of Audrey Niffinegger’s The Time Traveler’s Wife, but that’s where the comparison ends. Brashares’s characters are crafted with care and the majority of the book flows pleasingly. While My Name is Memory deals with reincarnation, it is a girl book, through and through. Sophie is Daniel’s one true love and he would do anything to get her to remember him, though sometimes the circumstances aren’t the best (i.e. in some lives she’s a grandmother, or she’s too young, or she’s married to someone else). Ann Brashares is a great writer (I honestly look forward to reading anything she puts out) and this book is no exception. Highly recommended!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful What first grabbed me about this book was essentially the back cover; so often I feel the need to read 5 pages in to get a good sense of whether it's my type of book or not. There are hundreds of love stories out there but I had yet to come across one that spanned centuries in this such a way. Daniel has the Memory, a rare ability to remember every single one of his past lives with total clarity. He's been around since the 6th century, AD. While the book takes place in the present, every other chapter recalls a past life of his, where he was living, what happened, etc. Throughout almost all of these lives, he seems only to live for finding Sophia. He's a lovable character, which is something I need in order to keep interest and the book is written with poignant insight and care. Reincarnation is a core subject in this book and whether you believe in it or not, it will have you wondering whether you yourself have lived past lives and what traits, scars or fears you've brought over with you into this life. There was only maybe 1 or 2 things I was a bit disappointed in with the story (I won't spoil it) but overall I really enjoyed everything about it. I recommend it!
