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

Nobody’s life is filled with perfect little moments. And if it were, they wouldn’t be perfect little moments. They would just be normal. How would you ever know happiness if you never experienced downs?”

Excerpt from:
P.S. I Love You
by Cecelia Ahern
Synopsis from Wikipedia

Holly and Gerry are a married couple who live in Dublin. They are deeply in love, but they fight occasionally. By winter that year, Gerry suddenly dies of a brain tumor and Holly realizes how much he means to her as well as how insignificant their arguments were.

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. Within the package are ten envelopes, one for each month after Gerry died, containing messages from him, all ending with “P.S. I Love You”. As the months pass, each new message fills her with encouragement and sends her on a new adventure. With Gerry’s words as her guide, Holly slowly embarks on a journey of rediscovery.

It is a really captivating book that also inspires a lot of enthusiasm. The book’s main subject, love, is introduced in a very noteworthy way. Even though dealing with the death of a loved one can be extremely painful, life moves on. You must maintain your optimism in order to get better for your loved ones, especially for your lost love, who may not have needed to witness your suffering.

A sense of emotional harmony could be felt throughout the entire book, which had an overall exquisite composition. It appeared to be yet another variation of the chick lit concept that had been used more frequently. I imagine that the author put a lot of effort into crafting the narrative and the exuberant thrill trip that Holly (or another woman in like circumstances) went through after losing her better half at a very young age. According to how I view it, “P.S. I Love You” was a well composed story about true love that last forever. The book serves as an example of the value of sincere connections that arise despite adversity. I think it’s important for all of us to be reminded from time to time who our closest companions are, regardless of whether we’re experiencing happiness or hardship or even just going through the motions.

This novel will make you cry while also making you appreciate your friends and family. Cecilia Ahern has created some believable characters. Her writing style is straightforward, but the quality of the plot compensates for any flaws. The novel perfectly captures the force of adversity, giving up, and rediscovering. It’s a moving and impassioned narrative about the lengthy journey of healing and re-observing oneself after losing a friend or family member.

This book shed me a tear or two. I highly recommend this book to every book readers out there.
