Deeply distraught, Holly withdraws from her family and friends out of grief until her mother calls her informing her of a package addressed to her. I made the mistake of seeing the movie before reading the book, thinking that the book is always better than the movie. Like Holly's sister as a character in the book, is so much more developed and I had really liked her. 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. When he arrived at Widya's home, he called me back and asked: And the notes from Gerry
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. View all 19 comments. View all 3 comments. Chick-Lit Readers. After being obsessed with the movie for months, I decided to take the plunge and read the book. 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.
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.
View 1 comment. Again I liked the movie more than the book. I feel like a mean person saying it for a newly widowed woman, but Holly is an insufferable little shit and I hate her. May 23, Erika rated it really liked it. 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. Mi hanno commosso davvero molto.
Cecelia Ahern mi ha regalato dei momenti veramente esilaranti che sono stati uno stacco piacevole dal dolore e dalla tristezza che provavo per altri.
Holly, secondo me, non era ancora pronta ad iniziare una nuova relazione, specialmente con un uomo che conosce da poco meno di un anno. Non ho mai letto niente del genere! Cos'altro dire? Ho finito questo libro da un po' e ho ancora gli occhi lucidi. Dec 21, Booky rated it did not like it. I'm not a big fan of PS I love you. Gerry is romantic and makes some wonderful gestures that make his wife realize she's not alone in dealing with life after Jerry. But thanks to these sweeping romantic gestures, they're out of money nothing left even to pay utility bills and Holly has to beg her Mom for money.
PPS I love you! Sep 08, Ros rated it really liked it Shelves: I Love You is an unusual choice for me since it starts off with the protagonist dealing with the death of her husband.
Those who have seen my book collection would note that I go for high drama and sweeping romances, stuff for romantics who are in love with love. I always get the ones that start with the heroine being taken by the hero not realizing that they have been falling in love in the process. I couldn't say what drew me to the book but I picked it up and brought it with me to the ca P. I couldn't say what drew me to the book but I picked it up and brought it with me to the cashier.
The book starts with Holley Kennedy keeping to herself a few months after the death of her husband Gerry Clarke. Holly and Gerry have been together since high school and Holly's world revolved around Gerry since then. Gerry was diagnosed with a brain tumor and rounds of medical procedures have not stopped him from succumbing to the death that it brought with it.
Holly closed off to everybody, wallowing in the grief that Gerry's death brought. She had no appetite and no desire to continue with her life as it was before Gerry passed.
Ahern's storytelling style had her cutting back and forth from the present to the past, illustrating the relarionship that Gerry had with Holly, her family and their circle of friends. Through these flashbacks, the readers learn that they shared a joke called "The List" which Gerry promised Holly he would write for her so that she can cope with the loss of Gerry.
As Holly realized some time in the story, of all of Gerry's promises, this was the hardest for her to accept since it meant that he was gone.
Turns out that Gerry did prepare a list for Holly some time between his medical procedures. He sent a package to Holly's parents' house which contained individual envelopes labeled from April to December with a letter to Holly that she open an envelope per month to do Gerry's list for her. The tasks went from buying a bedside lamp since it was always a nightly thing for them to argue who would get out of bed to close the bedroom light to conquering her fear of karaoke to a wonderful Spanish vacation with her closest friends, to finding her dream job.
In between the tasks, Holly learned more about her family and friends as well as how life continues despite the all the loss. Ahern created compelling characters that tell about growing up, the poignancy of loss and of rediscovery. The characters are real people that they seem to jump out of the pages and at me. They are flawed and human in their reactions and in their choices. It rocked me to the core since it made me think of the what ifs. It made me realize that I have a wealth of family and friends by me.
We may not always get along but we bring value and joy to each other's lives. Feb 01, Kaya rated it liked it. I had such high expectations for this book. What I wanted was a poignant and heart-breaking portrayal of a widow's emotional state, and all I got was a lot of a small talk and boring everyday family time. Like, A LOT. It starts off with the protagonist dealing with the death of her husband. Holly keeps to herself a few months after Gerry had lost a battle with brain tumour.
It turns out that Gerry prepared letters for Holly from April to December that she has to open at the start of every month to do Gerry's list for her. There are too many dialogues and all of them are lifeless and dull. While I like Holly's family dynamic, it's kind of a drag, and I needed plot to happen. Eventually, the plot never really occurred, all events had been extremely slow.
I thought this would be much better, since I really love the movie version. It was too long. This book has pages and nothing relevant happens. Holly is awesome, she was the best part of the novel. Despite the plot being weak, she was a strong protagonist and made me laugh numerous times. Her struggles felt genuine and I really wanted her to move on. All she ever wanted was to be a wife and a mother, and it was interesting to watch her seek for a new purpose.
Holly's bond with her distant brother Richard is really intriguing. I loved how they developed from having awkward silences and not having what to talk about, to complete understanding and support.
Or was badly described. Holly and Daniel have zero chemistry. I liked how their bond resolved in the end, but that unnecessary tension that the author tried to create only added to the negative impression. Yeah, they had interesting scenes, but their connection was forced. Jun 02, Kimberly rated it really liked it. I had bought P. I Love You with a collection of other chick lit novels on Ebay before the movie had come out yet.
So I figured I would just read the book first for once and see what I thought of the movie after. Now that I've done that, I have to say I really enjoyed the book so much more. The two were vastly different and many things were left out of the movie, but I guess with pages, there's a lot of story you have to cut. Like Holly's s I had bought P. Like Holly's sister as a character in the book, is so much more developed and I had really liked her.
Though its a very touching and emotional story, almost to the point where it freaks me out a little bit I mean what young married woman wants to imagine her husband dying! It was just so romantic and beautiful. But the grieving process that Holly goes through isn't altogether too realistic in my opinion.
I mean packing up her husband's things only months after he's passed - no way could I do that! At least the book portrays the grief as more of a struggle and process than I felt the movie did, which was good. Overall, I would definitely recommend this book to anyone. Though maybe read it after you've seen the movie, so you have a basis to start from and maybe won't be as disappointed in the movie as I was. And for being Cecilia Ahern's first novel, I thought the concept was great. I look forward to checking out some of her other novels, for I'm sure she'll only grow as an author.
Apr 18, Jessica rated it really liked it. It's a honest, raw look at the long road of healing and finding yourself again after losing a part of your heart. This novel is about Holly dealing with the death of her husband, Gerry. She later discovers that Gerry left a series of letters for every month for a year. One for Jan, Feb, March, etc. The story was heartwarming. Liked the little twist in the end although I wanted the ending to go a bit more slower.
In the end, it seemed like she became a lot more view spoiler [ okay with Gerry's death than she was before, it felt like the author did that to finish the book faster: Even if the writing style was simple, she had a flair for simple writing does that make sense?
I chose this book one day when I was in the mood for something different than my usual fare of high fantasy, smart science fiction or classic literature. I spent a long time perusing the chick-lit shelves not being a fan of the genre, normally before settling on this book, and I was not disappointed with my choice.
Holly is a widow who watched her husband die from a lengthy illness and is having a hard time dealing with it But her husband has planned for that and has left her help in that ar I chose this book one day when I was in the mood for something different than my usual fare of high fantasy, smart science fiction or classic literature.
But her husband has planned for that and has left her help in that arena. The book is by turns heart-breakingly sad and side-splittingly funny, sometimes in the same paragraph, and you will end up laughing through your tears or vice versa.
It is sweet, poignant, and usually not too sappy or angsty and stresses the importance of family and friends during a soul-trying time of loss. With the movie coming out, I finally decided to read the book however, I don't intend to see the movie as it looks really bad. I wasn't sure what to expect from the book.
I didn't know a whole lot about the book before reading it, other than the basic premise. In keeping in line with my love of all things Irish, I enjoyed that this book was set in Dublin. I'm surprised that that author was as young as she was when she wrote the book. I also can't help but like the fact that she's the daughter With the movie coming out, I finally decided to read the book however, I don't intend to see the movie as it looks really bad. I also can't help but like the fact that she's the daughter of the Irish prime minister I thought the characters were incredibly well developed.
It is every wife's nightmare to be in Holly's position but I feel like she captured as best as possible what it would be like to be her. There were so many moments where I found myself crying, which was a bit awkward because I was reading this on the train. Unlike a lot of chick lit books, the side characters were also well developed. Her friends and family were portrayed in a realistic and entertaining way.
I especially loved the sibling dynamics. I did have some issues with the ending of the book but I don't think that's a bad thing. I don't believe that one has to agree with every decision an author makes in order for it to be a good book.
All in all, Ms. Ahern does a great job of straddling the fine line of writing about a woman trying to get on with her life after the death of her husband. A young married couple, Holly and Gerry, have a joke between them: If anything ever happened to him, he'd have to write her a list or else she'd never be able to cope without him.
When Gerry's severe headache is diagnosed as brain cancer and Holly tragically loses him in a few short months, she is devastated and unmoored. She hasn't just lost her husband, she's lost her very identity. And then it arrives: Each letter offers specific instructions to guide Holly through grief, and ultimately grant her permission to return to life. The novel includes a cast of raucously funny and memorable characters, including Holly's best friends and four siblings who range in personality from the pink-haired world traveler Ciara to stick-in-the-mud Richard.
