    2. Some teenagers just have a knack for not taking things seriously, even their own death.After The Memory Game s fifteen year old David is killed in a hit and run, he doesn t move on to another realm, he simply becomes an invisible, lingering ghost I could totally pull my trousers down and show her everything I ve got, an imperceptible David muses whilst messing around in a packed assembly hall But David s shenanigans don t go totally unnoticed, because his former classmate, Bethany, can see him.D [...]

    3. This book my goodness It was sweet, funny, thoughtful, and melancholy I know it s labeled as a novella, but it s actually long enough to count as a novel And it holds as much awesome as you would expect from a novel too.David is an average fifteen year old He has a mom and step dad, friends at school, and he delivers newspapers One evening, while on his paper route, he is hit by a car and dies He suddenly finds himself stuck without a body, left to wander around his hometown where no one can see [...]

    4. Guy meets girl Guy is mean to girl Guy dies, and comes back to haunt girll me I really enjoy stories about the after life It s a common question what happens Do we stick around What if there s something we weren t able to finish What if we don t know where to go For David, he faces all of this, after his death from a horrible hit and run He struggles to figure out what to do next, alone in the world that now seems to be moving on without him, oblivious to his presence Well, almost alone Enter B [...]

    5. There is nothing to put your problems into perspective like dying That s at least what fifteen year old David realizes, after his life finds an end when he is hit by car Instead of the light at the end of the tunnel, pearly gates and loved family members greeting you, he s stuck in the world of the living with the one slight problem that noone can see him Or hear him Well, no one except the one girl he kept ignoring throughout all his school life unless he was making fun of her and tormenting he [...]

    6. I received a copy of The Memory Game from the author, Sharon Sant, for an honest review.With it s explosive and shocking start, The Memory Game grips the reader from start to finish The story begins with fifteen year old David looking down on his dead body at the scene of a hit and run accident The story is told in the first person and the reader is immediately drawn into the story wondering who David is and what has happened to him I should go somewhere, but I can t seem to leave my corpse alon [...]

    7. Having previously loved Sharon Sant s work, I couldn t wait to get my hands on this story I m pleased to report that it didn t disappoint.The Memory Game is a refreshing read, written in the first person, present tense, which draws you into the action I found this worked particularly well in the latter stages of the story, when the pace really picks up to an emotionally draining climax Yes, it s one of those stories that requires a blanket on the sofa, with a mug of hot chocolate, and a box of t [...]

    8. If there is a hell, I think maybe this is it Weeks after fifteen year old David is killed by a speeding driver, he s still hanging around and he doesn t know why The only person who can see and hear him is the girl he spent his schooldays bullying.Bethany is the most hated girl at school She hides away, alone with her secrets until, one day, the ghost of a boy killed in a hit and run starts to haunt her.Together, they find that the end is only the beginning Rating 3 5 StarsQuick Reasons reminisc [...]

    9. 4.5 starsWell, I was not expecting that I haven t had the best experiences with free kindle books, and this one blew me away in ways I wasn t expectingIS is what I want to see in young adult fiction, this is the kind of story that I will reread Watching David go from a self absorbed boy into someone who actually took the time to understand and care about people, was beautiful He wasn t a perfect character, but he was a good one I wanted to hate, love, slap, and hug him during the course of this [...]

    10. Coming 1st SeptemberFirst of all thank you to the author for sending me a copy of this book for review No REALLY thank you it was amazing.David died at 15 But he is not gone Weeks after his death, he wanders his home village, unable to interact with anyone or anything and unable to understand why, as he seems to be the only ghost around Suddenly he realises that there IS one person that can see and hear him her name is Bethany An outcast and loner, they had no contact in life so why is she the o [...]

    11. First of all, I d like to thank Netgalley for giving the opportunity of reading this book The Memory Game is a stand alone August 27th 2013 by Lightfoot press.This book is a Paranormal Fantasy that talks about a boy called David, but David isn t like any other 15 year old teenager, he s dead After being hit by a driver he dies but still can hang around and he doesn t know why He does end up meeting a girl that is the only one who can see and talk to David This girl that goes by the name of Betha [...]

    12. Also posted to Jen in BooklandThe Memory Game was a really simple, odd story David is killed at the beginning and he wanders around his town as a ghost No one can see him, hear him, feel him, anything He cannot move things around or really do anything in our world Then he is at school one day and notices that Bethany can see him Bethany the weird kid who everyone hates Bethany who I guess spoilers, though it is obvious from the first is obviously abused by her dad, who obviously killer her mom T [...]

    13. I received a copy of this story from Net Galley Yay books Spoilers possible aheadThis story made me really, really sad I m not even sure I really have anything good to say about it Maybe they it had a somewhat happy ending.I m using somewhat very loosely Because the ones with the somewhat happy ending are both dead Which in turn, makes it sad But at least David was there in the end for Bethany She really needed thateded a friend But that ending It just ended Like, I m still waiting to finish it [...]

    14. 3.5 starsThe only word I could use to describe this book is bittersweet It hit me in all the right places and there were times that I laughed but there were even times that I cried This is such a well written book that deals with life and death and I think it deserves praise than what it s getting.

    15. This year, I ve been rather taken by Sharon Sant Her writing that is The Memory Game is her sixth novel this year Yes her sixth I absolutely loved Runners, her YA dystopian novel and her debut, Sky Song was extremely original and imaginative When she offered me the chance to have a pre release look at this upcoming Young Adult Paranormal story, I immediately did a little dance I had high hopes, and what a story it turned out to be.The Memory Game tells the story of David Cottle, as he stares upo [...]

    16. Fifteen year old David was killed in a hit and run car accident But instead of heading off to heaven or wherever, he s seems to be stuck hanging around his old town He seems to be the only ghost around and, although he can hear and see other people, he can t interact with them That is until he realizes that Bethany, a girl from his school can both see and hear him Trouble is everyone in town knows Bethany s a real loser always dressing weird and with her dead mother and drunken daddy, she s just [...]

    17. Book Review Sharon Sant, The Memory Game Deeply moving read 5 stars.The Memory Game starts with a bang and the subsequent energy carries you through the book at an incredible pace.The main two characters, teenagers David and Bethany, are skilfully and well written The other characters in the book are equally well described and fill you with sadness, love and hatred whilst reading them The main character David is trying to find the meaning for his existence throughout the book, which is filled wi [...]

    18. It s not a ghost story in the traditional sense of the word Although dead, David still feels like himself he just can t do anything, making his teenaged boredom even worse He can t even talk to anyone, and all he can do is watch with increasing ennui ironic, that as everyone except his mother starts moving on, and then one day he discovers that is one person who can both see and hear him.From the opening to the last sentence I was riveted You get to see inside the mind of a teenaged boy, unfunny [...]

    19. Rating 2.5 5.I received a copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.El libro se qued muy corto, ya que no termin de entenderlo ni me termin de agradar Tiene algunas escenas que rescato, como el final y algunos de los momentos de David y Bethany, los protagonistas Es una lectura entretenida y f cil, incluso en ingl s Peeero, me qued con un mont n de dudas que no se resolvieron y que aumentaron al final Nunca me ha gustado que un libro haga eso, especialmente cuando es autoconclusivo.Ade [...]

    20. This was a sad story, but one that really grew on me.In the beginning, I had a hard time connecting to David because he was quite a jerk Even as a ghost, he seemed to have little compassion or empathy for anyone else But this changed slowly as the book progressed It s too bad David didn t mature until after he was dead, but I guess it s better late than never.All my sympathy was with Bethany She led a hard life, with a horrible father Every glimpse into her life brought pain.The ending is what [...]

    21. This life after death story follows fifteen year old David as he adjusts to being a ghost He s trapped on Earth with no idea why he can t move on or why only Bethany, a girl he used to bully at school, can see him Sharon Sant does a wonderful job of making the reader really feel the emotions David s frustration, anger and sadness jump off the page He s a flawed character but ultimately likeable, and I enjoyed reading about his friendship with Bethany as it develops.This is a really well written [...]

    22. 3.5 stars I got this book for free on and to tell you the truth I only bought it because that guy on the cover is so handsome If an author chooses such a beautiful cover she knows what she s doing right Well, she was indeed this book was a very nice read and I liked the characters.David died weeks ago but his spirit is still here and he doesn t know why The only girl that sees and hear him is Bethany the girl he bullied Bethany is having a very hard life and I felt so sorry for her David changes [...]

    23. It is a few weeks since I read this now, but the thing about Sharon Sant s books is that you are still thinking about them days later I loved this book and at times really identified with Bethany and what it was like not to be one of the in crowd at school.As usual I read it one sitting and was itching to get to the end to see if it ended the way I wanted it to.Looking forward to the next book very much.

    24. heartbreakingly good.David is dead and he wonders around curious and alone trying to figure out what is happening to him The only person that can see and hear him is Bethny The story was sad and I couldn t wait to figure out David s purpose.The only reason I am giving it 4 stars is because I wanted from the ending even though it was a happy one if you could call it that I wanted closure for the other characters too Definitely a must read

    25. this is the saddest most pointless book i have ever read nothing is accomplished none of the characters have a happy ending or anything remotely positive happen to them i do not reccomend this book at all it is 2 hours of my life that i will never get back and i am completely depressed by the entire thing the only reason i am bothering with a review is because i shared the fact that i was reading it and i dont want to waste anyone i like and knows time on this complete waste

    26. Actual rating 3.5I really didn t like David at first He was really rude After he died, he was still pretty rude, but he got nicer.It still took me ages to warm to him though.I really liked Bethany.I felt really sorry for her later on in the book.The ending was really good, and was defiantly the best bit.It did leave me with loads of questions though, so i m hoping it turns into a series Overall, a good quick read.

    27. I loved this book There was a real authenticity to the characters, and some of the conversations between David and the poor girl he haunts, Bethany, are sweet in their genuine awkwardness It also made me cry I can only think of a handful of other books that have achieved that the last time was when JK Rowling killed Dumbledore The Memory Game is a definite five star tear jerker that goes straight for the feels

    28. 3.5 stars This book was free on today and I read it in a couple of hours.I liked this book all the way up until the end You have this hope that at the end, things will on, so to speak, but instead, you re left empty handed, without any knowledge of what is going to happen I don t know if this is an attempt at setting this book up for a sequel if so, it was poorly done or what In any case, you only get half of what you set out wanting from this book.

    29. Absolutely fantastic A new favourite Such a beautifully written, heart breaking bookA fantastic read that I never wanted to end I was hooked from start to finish The relationship between David and Bethany was beautiful and yet heart breaking This is a must read that will leave you sobbing, yet yearning for

    30. I really enjoyed this book From the moment my tablet opened it at page one, it grabbed my attention and never let go Considering that the boy is dead, this never felt morbid, but swept you along and was really quite touching.It s one of those YA books that can be enjoyed by all agesI m way out of the target group but still loved it.

    31. great book couldn t put it down reminded me of my kids at that age and how kids treat each other when they are different how he resents not getting to know her when he was alive and how his best friend betrays him.
