She was only twenty-one at the time she wrote PS, I Love You, but that story made the world recognize the name Cecelia Ahern and was eventually adapted into a film starring the dashing Gerald Butler and Hilary Swank.
Following the success of her first publication, Ahern released Where Rainbows End in the same year, which was also adapted into a movie titled Love, Rosie featuring Sam Claflin and Lily Collins (I read the book once before the movie and one more time after watching the movie so that’s how good the story is!).
This book is all about the bittersweet love story of Alex Stewart and Rosie Dunne who have been the best of friends since they were four up until the duo turned eighteen and were forced to be separated when Alex and his family moved away to another side of the globe.
The story is an easy read because it is cleverly written using many letters, postcards, e-mails and instant messages, which makes it entertaining, instead of the conventional format of a novel.
You will find yourself engrossed in the journey of them growing up together and rooting for their friendship to progress further into romance yet there are many emotional moments in their lives that have kept them apart from each other until they are sixty!
This roller coaster book also gets you wondering if Alex and Rosie are meant to be together all this while after so many near misses they had encountered over the years even right at the very end of the story. No spoilers here but I know that you will definitely enjoy the ending as much as I did.
Fans of Cecelia Ahern look forward to a new title each year (she publishes a new book almost every year) so if you like her writing style, then go check out Flawed – her latest release.
