Book Review: P.S. I Love You by Cecelia Ahern


Yes, I know, it's been a very long time since I did a book review. This is the second book I have finished this year.... it is shameful!

P.S. I Love YouP.S. I Love You by Cecelia Ahern
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book was given to me so it wasn't something I picked off the shelf myself.

Although I did like the writer's voice, because it felt modern and very 'today' (gives me hope as a fellow wannabe writer), some of the plot irked me. Or maybe it was some of the characters. Some felt stereotypical to suit the plot's needs. And some of the plot did feel predictable, though the ending surprised me nicely.

Obviously, I am not to judge, it's been made into a motion picture, which I would like to see, to view the director's interpretation. I did like the overall idea of this story.

I liked Holly, and I felt for her. She'd lost her husband and she was devastated. I did have a lump in my throat at times reading this book, and a tear, and it also made me laugh. But unfortunately there were parts of the plot I wasn't so sure about, hence it got three stars from me, rather than four.

Once again, I will say though, I did like the writer's voice.
