Love, Rosie by Cecelia Ahern - Review

The Blurb:

What happens when two people who are meant to be together can't seem to get it right?

Rosie and Alex are destined for each other, and everyone seems to know it but them. Best friends since childhood, they are separated as teenagers when Alex and his family relocate from Dublin to Boston.

Like two ships always passing in the night, Rosie and Alex stay friends, and though years pass, the two remain firmly attached via emails and letters. Heartbroken, they learn to live without each other. But destiny is a funny thing, and in this novel o f several missed opportunities, Rosie and Alex learn that fate isn't quite done with them yet.

My Opinion:

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, from beginning to end. This whole book is written through either letter, text message or instant messenger, this was one of the main things that appealed to me as it made the book stand out from others and be original. It gave your typical Rom-Com novel a slight twist. Seeing as I read pretty much only on the bus to and from work to some other people I must've looked the sight at times, from laughing to smiling and even a little cry at the end, Yey to public reading! The main plot of this book is will they, won't they and it isn't just the typical teen years to read this through, it's from around the ages of 5/6 up to 60. That's 55 years within the whole book of will they won't they, that's one of the main reasons this book got a 4* rating and not 5*, the conclusion of yes or no dragged a bit too many years for my liking. Although this did happen to make the whole book a little more romantic and swoon worthy. 

Seeing as this book is written in letters, each letter is from the senders point of view and this helps give a better prospective of the story throughout the book. The whole book isn't just about Rosie (which it mainly is) it includes different characters points of views and sections of their life.  

Yes, I loved this book and want to read more from Cecelia Ahern. 
I watched the movie straight after I finished the book and that is a recommendation as well (after reading the book, it's totally different.)

Release Year: 2004/2015
