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
Holly has found love with her best friend. A person she can share everything with. A person she can laugh with. A person that understands her and makes her happy. Gerry was this for Holly.
A decade after their marriage, Gerry develops a headache. He goes to the doctor and the news is devastating. He has brain cancer and his prognostic is terminal.
At the beginning of P.S. I Love You, Gerry is already dead. It has been two months since he passed away. 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
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
The story was really good and I liked all the letters and all the instructions that were left by Gerry but I foun ...more
PS: Take a splurgy vacation with your friends, then come back and make the most of the remaining $10 in our joint account!
PPS I love you!
