- Author Cecelia Ahern
Loved this. A story told in the form of communications between Rosie and her friends and extended family, this chronicles almost fifty years of love, loss, drama, tears and tantrums. It draws you in from the very beginning, and even though some of the letters or emails are a bit clunky (they have to be to get the story across in a less than natural form), it’s all very believable and readable.
I loved the two characters, as well. Rosie with her strong will amongst a lifetime of setbacks, and Alex with his clearly talented career but bad choices in his love life. And those around them as well, all very lifelike and relatable.
Really good, and now I’m curious about the film that sprung out of it as well.
