Thank you. Your review has been submitted and will appear here shortly. You definitely see why this book way made into a movie though. Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by Hannah from Great book Have not seen the movie and only read the book. It was a good romance story. Date published: Rated 3 out of 5 by Sydney from Good read This is one of those instances where I saw the movie before I read the book and I'm glad that I did. The book was a good read and I enjoyed it.
One of my favorites among the books and authors I discovered as editor and bought rights for Serbia. View all 4 comments. Nov 06, Kate rated it did not like it Shelves: So badly written that it detracted from the touching and interesting premise. I read this solely because I saw that a film was being made of it with Gerard Butler of fame and wanted to have read the film prior to seeing the film which I am bound to do because it has Gerard Butler of fame in it.
The book is written by the daughter of the Irish Prime Minister which is the most interesting thing I can think to say about it.
I like myself some chick-lit-lite but this is ridiculous. The w So badly written that it detracted from the touching and interesting premise. I did not connect with the characters and felt no emotional connection whatsoever with the story or the protagonist. I did not care what happened in the end. Having said this, I can see why this will be made into a film.
The premise is actually not that bad: Widow receives a letter from her dead husband which he wrote before he died along with 11 other instalments to be read monthly to help her bereavement. It actually sounds really naff now I write it… But I honestly think the film will be far superior to the book. I hope so anyway. This does really annoy me though. You just have to have a good idea.
Seems a bit unfair to me. View 2 comments. Dec 12, Tara rated it it was ok Shelves: I was really expecting a lot more from this book, being that it has been made into a movie but I was fairly disappointed. I understand that Ahern is a young writer but she really does have a LOT of work to do with her writing skills. And maybe she could pick up a thesaurus to find a substitute word for "sarcastically" as she uses it to death in this book - there's no need to state the obvious in my opinion.
I suppose that I'm drawn to strong, proactive, and independent main characters and I spen I was really expecting a lot more from this book, being that it has been made into a movie but I was fairly disappointed. I suppose that I'm drawn to strong, proactive, and independent main characters and I spent a lot of time feeling like Holly was whining throughout the whole book.
I know that may sound harsh considering she is dealing with the loss of her husband, and while I can't relate to dealing with something like that, I had a difficult time sympathizing with her. The ending was the most anti-climatic ending I've read in a while. Overall, I probably wouldn't recommend this book to many people and most likely won't even see the movie because of it - and who would cast Hilary Swank for Holly's character in the first place??

It was just a casual conversation. Dad was planning to come to Bandung at weekend so he asked me did I want him to bring something for me and such.
Things were usual until when we were gonna ended our conversation. U "I believe that you should always leave loved ones with loving words. Usually at the end of our phone call, I'd like to say: Love you, Dad. That time, I didn't know why but I hesitated to say it.
So I just said: Be good. Love you. Two hours after that, my mom called to inform that Dad got a very bad headache and they were on the way to hospital. Turns out it was a first symptom of stroke.
When I came to Jakarta, he was in comatose state and he never woke up again. To this day, I still regret for not saying the i-love-you words at our last conversation. And that's when the words dawned on me.
I promise myself that whenever I part with someone I love, I'll leave them with loving words. Usually I try to keep that promise.
But sometimes I forget and parted after the heated argument with my loved ones. The second incident happened around January At that time, I had someone that I consider as my significant-other. We've been together since the 1st grade at Elementary School.
Unlike many other stories about childhood sweetheart, we started as a couple turn to best friend while still considered ourselves a s couple, then being a true best friend, and finally a true couple kok ribet yaa. We too could read other's mind. I know him more than I know myself and vice versa. That's what years-of-relationship did to us. We were also a cool couple. Cool in terms of: As an example, when I saw a pretty lady, I'm gonna tell him like this: Cakep ya.
And after looking for some seconds just seconds. Longer than that then he's in a deep shit. LOL , he's gonna say: Nice booty. Very sexy boobs. Things also happened the other way around. How cool are we? We're one of those couples that have thing you called as a comfortable silence. We could sit together for hours, saying nothing and just enjoying each other's companion. We've found home in each other's presence. For me, he's not just a boyfriend.
He was also my bestfriend, my dream keeper, my most loyal supporter, my soulmate, or to sum it in one word: But it's all ended in one night. That night, we had a plan to hang out with our friends at our usuall place. He was supposed to pick Widya up our friend whose house located between mine and his , before pick me up then heads to our meeting place. Because of overslept, he was late picking Widya up.
Back then, I was a very very very punctual person. I could be really mad just because one minte late from the schedule. So at that time, though I know it was really irritating, I kept calling him just to ask him where he was and asked him to drive faster. I knew he was annoyed with my constant calls mainly cause I called him while he was driving. But I was selfish that time and I didn't care, so I just kept calling.
When he arrived at Widya's home, he called me back and asked: Kenapa, babe? Usually we just call each other with our name real name, I mean. Or using missy-boy in a casual argument. And lady-sir if we wanted to tease each other.
But he had this habit to call me with petnames when he was mad at me. He'd call me cutie pie, honeydew, love, well you know I asked his reason once, and he said: I know that's cheesy The sweeter he called me means the more annoyed he was. So on the 1 to 10 scale with 10 being the maddest , "babe" was on number 5. Usually when I know he's on the 5th scale and up, I'm gonna back off and calm him down. But that night, I was really pissed too. So I replied him still with an annoyed tone: Kata dia tunggu bentar.
Dia masih siap-siap. Sabar yaaa So actually that time I knew that he was really really mad with me. Usually, "cinta" is a sign for me to seriously back off and calm down. But still, I didn't wanna do it that night. Tar gw telpon kalo Wiwid udah siap jalan. Again, that day I wasn't in the mood to say it back and just answer him with: Cepetan ya.
Gw tunggu. She told me about an accident that involved him and now they were on their way to hospital. When I got to hospital, he was already unconscious. He never wakes up again. Turns out, the "love-you" was his last words to me and "yeah-whatever-cepetan-ya-Gw-tunggu" was my last response to him. Bad, eh? It's been almost 4 years since that. There are many things that I've learned and could accept with now. I have learned that being punctual is good, but being a very very very punctual person is a pain in the ass.
I could deal with the pain of losing him and have the dreamless sleep now.
I don't ask the universe anymore why 20 years long of relationship had to ended so abruptly like that. I just accept it as the-way-it-should-be. I could forgive the destiny for taking away someone who has a very bright future ahead in such a young age.
I believe that this is the best for him and for everyone around him Actually I still can't see why, but I just wanna believe that coz God always makes the best plan for His people. I still regret my last words to him. I still can't truly forgive myself for ended our conversation after a heated argument like that. At least with my Dad, things were good between us. And for me, this fact still hard to deal with.
I envy Holly. I'm not saying that Holly's situation is easier or better than mine. There's no use in making comparison here. She lost her man gradually and I lost him so abruptly, blah I envy him cause she has times to bide her loved ones a proper goodbye. I also envy her because even 1 year after he left, she still got his letters that showing her how much he loves her.
I know it's lame, but sometimes back in the past when I sort his things off, I wished that I got his letters or even note or anything that I could consider as his-goodbye yeah I know I've watched too many lame movies. Or at least a note which tells me that he knows though I was pissed at him on our last conversation but I still love him.
Because Holly made sure that Gerry knew she loves him when he left this world. The one thing that I didn't do. Hey you, up there I hope you could read this. But finding a true soul mate is an even better feeling. A soul mate is someone who understands you like no other, loves you like no other, will be there for you forever, no matter what.
They say that nothing lasts forever, but I am a firm believer in the fact that for some, love lives on even after we're gone. All in all, for me this is a good book. Unrealistic actually about that moving on things the justyear-time-span which made it kinda unrealistic , but still it's a good read. Through Holly's journey and Gerry's letter, I got some lessons about healing. On the other hand, she was a women with a million happy memories, who knew what it was like to experience true love and who was ready to experience more life, more love and make new memories.
Whether it happened in ten months or ten years, Holly would obey Gerry's final message. Whatever lay ahead, she knew she would open her heart and follow where it led. In the meantime, she would just live. I could also proudly said that once in my life I knew what true love was. And I also knew that whatever lay ahead, I'd open my heart and follow where it led. But for now, while waiting that to happen, I'll just live. Thank you Ahern, for made me realize that a happy ending has many kind of shades.

And I can tell you that the book was equally as satisfying but completely different to the Gerard Butler perv-fest that I so dearly love. There were so many changes made to translate this book to film.
I won't go into them all here now because I wouldn't want to ruin it but let's just say they were significant. From love interests to careers, everything was different. And for that reason, I th After being obsessed with the movie for months, I decided to take the plunge and read the book. And for that reason, I think I probably did it the right way round watching the movie first and reading the book second. I'm giving it 4 stars for because Cecilia Ahern is just so easy to read.
It requires no effort to get into a rhythm and it's the perfect little book to pick up when you're in between epics. She tackles grief without making you feel life is pointless. There is always hope. And I think that's what Gerry gives Holly in her first year without him - hope for a new life. I'd say this little story gave me a similar feel-good feeling to The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks. It didn't matter that it was tragic, it still managed to really touch me. Really it was beautiful.
Read this novel if: You're looking for something inbetween other books and don't want to have to work too hard to enjoy the characters. Don't read this novel if: You think you could feel disconcerted or upset by the intense, overwhelming grief Holly is struggling to come to terms with. Una obra maestra. Evocando emocionalmente. Cecilia, eres y asombrosa pensadora y escritora. Fue rea Hermoso. Un libro que habla de amor, de una manera dulce y emotiva.
Hermosa historia y muy bien escrita. Dec 07, Jillian rated it it was amazing Shelves: I loved this book. Beautiful story and very well written. It made me cry a few times and also appreciate things in my life He works away from home and at times I am so lonely without him. So I could feel Holly's pain and lonliness.
This year is our first Christmas apart and I've been rather blue lately. A few chapters in the book were hard to read and I had to put it down for a while and watch TV instead.
Thankfully though I know he is coming home I loved this book. Thankfully though I know he is coming home unlike Holly's husband. This book has also been made into a movie. I read the sypnosis of the film and decided I'm not going to see it.
They changed the story and characters around They change how she gets the letters and leave out what I think are important characters. I hate it when they do that to movies made from books. So before seeing the movie I advice reading the book. Sep 02, Leigh rated it did not like it. I tried reading this once before, a few years ago now. I put it down about a quarter of the way in because, frankly, I was bored. I saw the movie several months ago and actually found it a lovely mix of sweet and sad.
I thought maybe I'd missed something in the book and not only that, but I've become well acquainted with this kind of loss in the time that has passed. Thinking that my new perspective might change my mind, I decided that at some point I'd give it another go. Well this week I gave I tried reading this once before, a few years ago now. Well this week I gave it another go and I can tell you that I only got about 20 pages further than last time.
Now I find the book not just boring, but immature. This book is Ahern's supposition of what it must be like to lose your significant other at a young age.
She clearly has no experience with loss, even of a friend or close relative. There is no real grief, or heart, in this book, nor are the characters' actions very realistic. Yes, grief is unique to both the circumstance and the person feeling it - but there are so many moments in here that are simply unbelievable. Some authors have the talent to write what they don't know. Ahern isn't one of them. My advice: If you want to read about grief and lost loves, go read The Year of Magical Thinking instead.
Random friend. The world and its mother loved this book. I didn't. I couldn't. I don't think there was anything wrong with the book per se, except that it was too long, but somehow, nothing about the book stuck with me. Oh, and by too long I mean it was too long for the story, not as a book in general. Everything was too forced, too predictable; I mean, the blurb screams "I'm different", yet the story remains the same. Then again, this is probably just another case of "it's not you, it's me.
Ahern is quite a talented writer, and she really isn't a bad story teller. It's just that there is no story in this one. I get that I'm with the unpopular opinion here, but as I've previously mentioned, very few romance novels impress me, and this one just didn't cut it. I know I may come across as a heartless bitch when I say that, but it is what it is.
Actually, I think one of the reasons I couldn't bring myself to like the book was that I couldn't sympathise with Holly. Pity her, I did, but I couldn't feel what she was feeling. And so another one bites bit the dust. View all 11 comments. Reto Book Challenge: Very Funny.
Cecelia Ahern's debut novel, PS, I Love You, follows the engaging, witty, and occasionally sappy reawakening of Holly, a young Irish widow who must put her life back together after she loses her husband Gerry to a brain tumor. Ahern, the twentysomething daughter of Ireland's prime minister, has discovered a clever and original twist to the Moving On After Death concept made famous by novelists and screenwriters alike--Gerry has left Holly a series of letters designed to help her face the year ah Cecelia Ahern's debut novel, PS, I Love You, follows the engaging, witty, and occasionally sappy reawakening of Holly, a young Irish widow who must put her life back together after she loses her husband Gerry to a brain tumor.
Ahern, the twentysomething daughter of Ireland's prime minister, has discovered a clever and original twist to the Moving On After Death concept made famous by novelists and screenwriters alike--Gerry has left Holly a series of letters designed to help her face the year ahead and carry on with her life. As the novel takes readers through the seasons and through Gerry's monthly directives , we watch as Holly finds a new job, takes a holiday to Spain with her girlfriends, and sorts through her beloved husband's belongings.
Accompanying Holly throughout the healing process is a cast of friends and family members who add as much to the novel's success as Holly's own tale of survival. In fact, it is these supporting character's mini-dramas that make PS, I Love You more than just another superficial tearjerker with the obligatory episode at a karaoke bar.
Ahern shows real talent for capturing the essence of an interaction between friends and foes alike; even if Holly's circle of friends does resemble the gang from Bridget Jones a bit too neatly to ignore her best friend is even called Sharon. While her style can be at times repetitive and her delivery is occasionally amateurish, Ahern deserves credit for a spirited first effort.
If PS, I Love You is any indication of this author's talent, readers have much to look forward to as Ahern matures as a novelist and a storyteller.

Ho iniziato questo libro con delle aspettative molto alte che non sono state per niente deluse! Holly e Gerry sono anime gemelle, praticamente inseparabili. Gerry, infatti, muore a causa di un cancro terminale al cervello ed Holly, vedova a soli 29 anni, non sa cosa fare per rimettere insieme i pezzi. Que Ho iniziato questo libro con delle aspettative molto alte che non sono state per niente deluse! Ricco, scorrevole e mai pesante. Penso che abbia inquadrato perfettamente i personaggi, la storia e gli stati d'animo e che abbia offerto a noi lettori un ritratto molto realistico del dolore, della perdita e del conseguente, ma estremamente difficile, recupero.
Di lei ammiro la tenacia con cui affronta le cose e il suo adorabile senso dell'umorismo. The Estimate Delivery Date is when your order is expected to arrive at your chosen delivery location.
