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 hone ...more

P.S. I Love You is Irish writer Cecelia Ahern's debut novel, published in 2004. 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 ...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
I suppose that I'm drawn to strong, proactive, and independent main characters and I spen ...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
Now I'm gonna rant. So if you really loved this book and don't want to hear anything about it, just skip this one. Also, there will be some SPOILERS, so...
I guess my OCD made me finish the book, because I wouldn't have bothered otherwise.
It started good, even if a bit rambly. But the idea was so heartbreaking and sweet at the same time, of course I wanted to know what happened next. As I watched the movie so many years ago, I could only remember liking it, not much more. So ...more
Everything was too forced, too predictable; I mean, the blurb screams "I'm different", yet the story remains the same. Then again, this is probably just another case of "it's not you, it's me." I'm sure everyone ...more

It starts off with the protagonist dealing with the death of her husband. Holly keeps to herself a few months after Gerry had lost a battle with a brain tumor. They’ve been together since high ...more
Gerry and Holly became childhood sweethearts until he's gone and she's left to pick up the pieces. I enjoy the notes that Gerry ...more
Holly is a widow who watched her husband die from a lengthy illness and is having a hard time dealing with it... But her husband has planned for that and has left her help in that ar ...more
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
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
