When I find an author I like, I read just about everything they've written.
Right now, Cecelia Ahern's novels are my obsession. There is no system or particular order to my readings or reviews of the books.
I am assigning shamrocks for my reviews. The best review will be 5 shamrocks.
Here is what I've read so far-
I read this one in spurts over a weekend. LOVED IT!
What a unique idea; this woman's life personified comes calling on her! I have to wonder if my life would be a worn out, smelly guy too? Sometimes it sure feels like it must be so!
I did enjoy the concept of this novel, and I was compelled to continue reading. However, the ending was not fulfilling and felt contrived.
PS I LOVE YOU-
Yes, yes. I know this was made into a film. There is a very good reason for that. This is one awesome read! There are some slow periods, but the author makes up for all. LOVED!
IF YOU COULD SEE ME NOW-
It was hard for me to empathize with the main characters. However, I enjoyed the journey. Well written, as are all her novels.
THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HERE-
Again, I enjoyed the concept of this novel, but, like other Ahern books, there were points where I was getting frustrated with the author. There is a good message, as there is in all her books, but it felt like she was pounding it home a bit too hard.
THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES
Ok, so this is an interesting premise. A woman is saved by a transfusion and suddenly finds that she is sharing his memories, likes, dislikes, even his education! It is a fun read, then it gets pretty slow. I don't think Ahern knew how to wrap this one up
This book was so hard for me to read! Talk about getting hit over the head with a hammer!! Golly, the main character can't get a break. Everything predictably goes South each time she has a great opportunity. Ho hum.
The Book of Tommorow
I wandered into this novel discouraged after the Rosie Dunne experience, but once again, I am a believer! The story is a combo. Part mystery, part self realization of the main character. I LOVED it! I even read it while standing on line at the grocery store. It traveled with me wherever I went until I was finished. And then I went back and re-read some of it!
Thanks Cecelia Ahern!
