If You Could See Me Now
Readers and critics alike adore Cecelia Ahern for her lighthearted yet insightful stories about modern women and their often unusual situations. In If You Could See Me Now, she takes that theme a step further, offering us a heroine who is entirely believable, and the new man in her life who is, well, slightly less so.
Elizabeth Egan's life runs on order: Both her home and...more
I really, really liked the front cover for 'If You Could See Me Now', it was simple, natural, and actually depicts a huge part in the book. When I first saw it I thought it was lovely anyway because I love the thought of making a wish with dandelions and then blowing them to watch ...more
1. It is not a typical romance novel.
2. It is not to everyone's taste.
3. It's written for people with imagination.
4. It has made me laugh and cry in the most unexpected way.
5. It's 'sprinkled with magic'.
6. It taught me that sometimes you just need to let go and simply enjoy.
7. It is an indescribably touching story.
8. It made me want to have Ivan as best friend, if only for few days.
When I read the blurb, I had no idea there was a sense of magic about it. I just thought it was a normal chic-lit book that intrigued me, yet again. Oh, how wrong I was.
Ahern took me on a journey whereby I witnessed things I hadn't thought about since childhood. I was thrilled by the happiness, sucking me in wholeheartedly but I was ...more

There are no words to express how touching this story is.
I’ve read two books by Cecilia Ahern – P.S. I Love You and this. Both of them have touched my heart in a way rarely any book has.
If You Could See Me Now is a book which would make even the cynic of cynics sob like a baby.
Let me give you some background.
If You Could See Me Now is a gentle tale; a love story with a twist.
Elizabeth is a very uptight and no nonsense lady who has been stuck with her sister’s six year ...more

Although the end was quite disappointing because he stayed as imaginary, i still have to admit that I enjoyed the book a lot and I would love reading it over and over again. :))

What would you do if you suddenly can see your nephew's imaginary friend?
At one point of time, Ivan (the imaginary friend of Luke, Elizabeth's nephew) falls in love with Elizabeth. But how could they live with each other, when Ivan is not even a real person?
I was crying when it came to the story of Opal, Ivan's mentor who falls in love with a real person.
OK, since I am to lazy to tag spoilers, and if you don't want any spoiler, stop reading here.
Since you will know how this story will ...more

― Cecelia Ahern, If You Could See Me Now
Some people aren't into the whimsical. They like to stay grounded in reality and they like to know that what they're reading is concrete and is a variance on what their own life is like- or maybe someone they'd wish their life was like or maybe glad that it's not like ...more
People forget they have options. And they forget that those things really don’t matter. They should concentrate on what they have and
not what they don’t have. And by the way, wishing and dreaming doesn’t
mean concentrating on what you don’t have, it’s positive thinking that encourages hoping and believing, not whinging and moaning.
Life’s kind of like a painting. A really bizarre, abstract painting.
You could look at it and think t ...more
The message this book sends is wonderful. The world can be a truly magical place if we treat our time in it as such. Memorable, important, worthwhile. We worry too much about the wrong thi ...more
I would recommend this book for those who are searching for hope , for new beginning , cause it makes you see the world with a very different perspective .
The love is so pure & selfless , the innocence would feel your eyes , & the part where you know its going to be that way , you still want to believe in a miracle ,there is a very thin line betwe ...more
Now, I don't read a lot of chick lit, so I'm not sure what the norm is. But one thing I've noticed about the chick lit that I HAVE read is it's ability to make me cry. This was no exception. I found myself tearing up quite a few times; so often, in fact, that I started telling myself to toughen up. It was just so sad! Elizabeth's mother is a horribly selfish woman wh ...more
When Ivan from 'Ekam Eve ...more
This may just be the sweetest story I have ever read. I honestly didn't want this book to end.
Forget about the synopsis, wipe away any thoughts about what the book might be about and just start reading it.
This will forever be one of my favorite books of all time.
Često mi se zna dogoditi takva situacija. Mnogo sam puta vidjela fotkice staklenki s papiričima na kojima su naslovi knjige i da ljudi na takav način biraju što dalje čitati. Iako je to nekima super, ja sam užasno izbirljiva. Moje raspoloženje me najčešće navodi prema nekoj ...more
