that prophecy would be creeps any people out, but beatrice is not one of them. she didnt believe it, and make this story interesting. because people who believe that such thing and got a bad propchecy, they will be think about it, again again and again and make her crazy and depressed inside, when at the end it just non-sense, OR she make it true because her frightness. but at most of the romantic book that i've read about the prophecy, it proves wrong at the end. this story is different.
"If you're intentions are pure I'm seeking a friend for the end of the world."
Beatrice is interest of this personal ad. i mean, for most of normal people.. they wouldnt interest about this ad, because even the words are sweet, but who the one will put this personal ad on the newspaper? a nuts people, someone who jobless, or just a freaking guy?
but she interest with it, or this ad interest her. so, it such a destiny. look at jacob who all of sudden write this ad, and look beatrice who interest with it.
i like the way Tiff create this story about destiny, love, romance and happiness-sadness in it.
its a destiny they know each other, they meet up, and they falling in love. they click and instantly they feel that they complete each other.just like the title. :)
well, there are some problems in this book, about jacob who hate his father because his father abandones him, and trixie who hate her father as well because he re-marry and leave her with his brother and his mother.
they re not just a two adult who falling in love, but they also through all the things together, they support each other, and they make each other to be a better person. and its all the good things from a mate rite? if they a good mate for you, they will make you happy and give the best for you, and make you become a better person, but if they make you become a worst person, i dont thing that they are the real soulmate for you.
well, trixie help jacob meet his father, try to know him, and jacob felt glad that he could meet him before his death, and jacob help to open trixie's mind about his father, they gathered and trixie finally feel that her dad is still love her, no matter what.
they broke up for a while. it because jacob. he feel grieved about his father and it drives him crazy. he going somewhere and just leave trixie all alone. he stay and he leaves just like that. none would blame him, because we all know about his grieved, but it just continue overwhelmed, so make trixie tired about this, and continue become hatred. but as time goes by, jacob feel worse, he feel guilt and he beg trixie and try to get her back again, again and again. its hard. but it works. they back together again, and they planned to go somewhere that they like. they planned and decide. buat after jacob got the money from his book, and trixie prepare for all things, even they hv a farewell dinner with their friends, and fleeting, jecob is drown and died. tragic. beautiful tragic. very abruptly. trixie didnt expect about this, and i guess most of the readers too.
so, the prophecy is right. they dont have a happy ending, but thy have a beautiful love story. when i read this, i feel like what she feel. it make me speechless and gawk. it makes me wondering "how if.." it creeps me out. seriously.
i think how if i lost my soulmate? i really cant imagine about it. could i move on? or its better, that me who died first, instead of him..
Tiff makes us wonder after read this story. nice story. and sometimes truth is terrifying..so its better not to hear the prophecy, if you have a choice, just let it flow and face it ;)

Since i was a kid i always think about why people died, or tragic things happened to good people. and this lucy brown story is one of the story that crossed my mind. how if people died before their wedding? it would be tragic, pathetic and painful. and how with those who left behind, especially the groom?
Cally Taylor answer my question with this story. Lucy Brown is just a normal, nice and funny girl who will be marry with her sweetheart, her soulmate..but one before the wedding day the tragedy happened.
i wonder it must be hard to both of them. I read how lucy who desperately want to help archie find his soulmate so she can become a ghost to be with Dan forever and how she want to see and talk with Dan so badly. its really depressed her.
i read how she try hard to help archie, how she become a good housemate to bryan and claire. she helps them.
and how about dan? he is survived to live without lucy, someone who he dearly love. i bet he is suffering too.
and how about anna? im not blamed her because she fell in love with her pass away BBF's BF. but i still dont like her.
well, i like this book. i like the story and the ending. i like when lucy realized that if she really love Dan, she must let him go, so she decide go to heaven, and let him move on and live happily. i love lucy's words that she said when she decided to leave. its really touching. huaaa..
lucy is so normal, and its one of the reason i like this book. she's nice, she's kind, and helpful but she just normal. she'a angry with archie's grandma, and also with anna.
she could become furious if she cant stand it. and anyway, i knew from the start that sally like archy so much. its obvious.
andd, i love the ending. after all the things, finally they ended up together, dead happily ever after. :) (less)

okay, lets be fenceless. Frankly,i super dislike with the main character. why? okay, if you read it already, you must be understand completely why i super dislike lucy sullivan. actually, compare to the other friends, theres nothing wrong with lucy. she seems normal, pretty and nice.
but there re many things that distract me so much. her childhood wasn't good. she suffered from a kindness depression that supposed make her become a meek and sweet lady, like mother teresa maybe. but as time goes, i dont see that she become that kind of lady. i just look her as a sarcastic ans cynic lady, and also dumb. very very dumb. sorry for my openness, but i just cant help it. like she see her father always been an alcoholic, but she didnt know it! i mean, she saw it, she see it, but she pretend didnt see anything, which is ridiculous and prefer to hate her mother. her mother who take care of her father since long long time ago, who patiently not only take care of her alcoholic husband, but also take care of her children, especially her ungrateful daughter who always blame her for whats happened ( i know that her mother do sucks, sometimes. but i guess its normal. mother generally always like that. but you must see her sacrifice and the reason behind her act and everything) lucy never try to understand, the thing she knew hate her mom, and love her dad with all of her heart. and daniel? daniel act just like a wise and an understanding guy ever. but lucy always seek the bad side from him and also act cynical to him. and, about her dumbness.. again.. it just make her complete as a dumbest lady ever ( i never dislike this main character so much before :p) she always seek someone whose useless like her father. unemployed, irresponsible, alcoholic, weird ( i mean super weird), and act just like a jerk.the best example is Gus. a guy who act very weird and disgusting, just use her to pay all of his drink. we all know that Gus is a super useless guy ever from the beginning, but our dumb lucy see him as a stunned guy ever. how come??
well done. i tell all of the reason why i super dislike with lucy sullivan. *relieved*
but why i gave this book 4 stars? well.. even i dislike with lucy, but i like the story. i mean, this story had so much flaw that make it so real, that maybe happened with some people nowadays. i always like marian keyes's books. she always write the real things that happened in our lives, that happened with people surround us. and it makes perfect.
like lucy, her childhood wasnt good at all, and also her adultness. actually i cant blame why she hate her mother instead her father? its because she was a kid since all the promblems happened. she didnt understand how her mother strived to fulfil all the needs and find a few jobs while her father just enjoy his drink at home. she's just exhausted so it makes her become a strict and stern lady. lucy as a kid didnt understand all of this, she just knew that her father always makes her happy, laughing all the time, singing, joking around while her mother become that kind of lady. so that hatred brings little lucy til her adultness. she hate her mother and she love his father til finally her mother decide to divorce and she 'heroicly' moved to her house and take care of her father. well.. she's not survived after a while. (short term) she sucks and disgust with all the things that she have to do. not just taking care of his father, she also must face that his father is a cronic alcoholic and he's not always treat her good, he often become sucks and annoying, and she must give her dad money again and again. but could you imagine how silly and dumb lucy can be? she knew that her father is an alcoholic, but she still give him money to buy the drinks, she said that drink a lil bit will be okay. and its normal to him to drink, because he just lost her wife. errrrrgh! i wanna punch her face, if she's real.
but well, after all of her dumbness.,. finally she know the truth, about her parents, about gus.. why she always choose the wrong guy and about her feeling with daniel. fiuhh... finally.. :) i love the end. daniel is just perfect.
i guess marian keyes really good make this lucy sullivan's character. she's dumb, annoying and have an unique character. (mostly we see the sweet, nice, and belieavable character). because lucy is unbelievable. and she's succeed makes the reader irritated with her main character.
so, overall, i like this book. it teach many things :) well done!(less)

so overall this story is great! like there re conflicts and how kate desperate because of joe, magda, how she lose her job but she can struggle and afterall she even get better. :D happy ending :D yeay!!(less)

Noel keep telling us how hideous what Damen did in the past and actually at first it keep wondering me what is that? and when at the end i found out that what damen do is buy her and just want her safe and everything, is a kinda ridiculous for me. VERY MUCH. she just EXAGGERATE it. seriously. and the best thing of all is ever know everything, about her feeling etc and makes her better in the future. so shadowland isnt that bad, is it? but theres the weirdest thing that i found on this book. i think that every immortal will dead if they attacked at their weakes disc, but yeah..ever survived and the others not. noel tell us that shadowland will show all the bad things in the past thay they do, so they will see everything and feel a deep repetance and finally having redemption and survived, just like ever. so its kinda weird that roman and Drina wasnt survived while Ever does. or perhaps that re too evil, too wicked or too obstinated to concede their mistake. but okey well, just consider that they re too evil to concede their sins, but how about the dead body? When they died, they quickly turn out to dust, so they dont have time to rethink again or something. but Ever is different, she sill have her body when she die, so she can re think again and yeah back to the world. so its kinda weird right? what do you guys think about this? i know its just a book, but i guess it quite interesting to discuss about this. :) (less)

the love story isnt smooth like other classic story, personally i feel jane's story really interesting. and the end is really nice too. i enjoy reading this book, and eventhough at the beginning is quite boring i can say.. but if you read this continually, it makes you drift to her story. :) (less)
