P.S. I Love You
A novel about holding on, letting go, and learning to love again.
Now in paperback, the endearing novel that captured readers' hearts and introduced a fresh new voice in women's fiction Cecelia Ahern.
Holly couldn't live without her husband Gerry, until the day she had to. They were the kind of young couple who could finish each other's sentences. When Gerry succumbs to a t...more

The whole book felt like a rambling and dull conversation with a repetitive yet inconsistent story-line. I would normally have full sympathy for Holly's situation but ho ...more

I read this solely because I saw that a film was being made of it with Gerard Butler (of 300 fame) and wanted to have read the film prior to seeing the film which I am bound to do because it has Gerard Butler (of 300 fame) in it. The book is written by the daughter of the Irish Prime Minister which is the most interesting thing I can think to say about it. I like myself some chick-lit-lite but this is ridiculous. The w ...more
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 ...more
It made me cry a few times and also appreciate things in my life....especially my loving and thoughtful husband. 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 ...more

to him, he'd have to write her a list or else she'd never be able to cope without him. “The List”
grew to encompass advice for any eventuality, a joke all their friends shared. 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: a pack ...more
Holly e Gerry sono anime gemelle, praticamente inseparabili. Holly non può vivere senza di lui, finché non è costretta a farlo. 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.
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 ...more

Devoured the book as well as the movie. Highly recommended.
I am sooo in love with this story!
First I watched the movie and it became one of my very favorite of all times.
And now, after reading the book I can’t decide which one I like better… it doesn’t matter though… I loved Gerry and I cried with Holly every time.
I think this story is so dear to me because, for me, it’s not just about losing a husband but someone you love, really really love, and how hard it’s lo keep going after they’re gone ‘cause they might not be with you in person but ...more
The main story is that her husband before he died he wrote 12 notes for her to support her and help her to start a new life without him. 12 notes for 12 months.
You will see what she will do and live her life without him and try her best to continue.
I enjoyed every moment readying this book.. Enjoy it :)
P.s. sorry for my poor English

A very beautiful story that makes sad and makes you smile, though it was a little long-winded and cheesy at times. Holly's friendship with Daniel and her family members was very sweet. Could do with a lot more Gerry, too. Especially now that I see him as Gerard Butler. ...more
Read this ages ago in paperback. Back then this book was such a hype. Funny thing is I am not part of that worshipful crowd for this sappy romance. In fact, the protagonist gets on my nerve most of the time and I just felt like wanting to give her a good strong kick to help her out of that whiny, self-pitying existence. I even felt the same with the film adaptation of it. Ugh.
The only reason why I did eventually finish it was wholly because the of the engaging storyline and I do love it when ch ...more
I'd been struggling a bit with Fortress Besieged and we needed to go on a break. P.S. I Love You had been sat on my desk on the top of my 'I'm never going to read these books so they need to go to a car boot sale' pile, staring at me, for ages. So I gave in to it's cute polka dot cover and ...more
