The UK version is paperback, and the US version will come out in hardback first.

    I bought a UK copy of The Flatshare because I didn't want to wait for US publication, and from it I learned that there are some big differences in punctuation. For example, they use apostrophes instead of quotation marks for dialogue. It was also a very stiff paperback, not a happy floppy trade paperback.

    You can order the UK version from book depository or Amazon. (less)

    Cecilia Ahern writes a terrific sequel to PS I Love You, immersing us once again in the life of 37 year old Holly Kennedy seven years on since the loss of her beloved husband, Gerry, from cancer at the too young age of 30. She has established a new life with tree man, Gabriel, and is working at her sister, Ciara's second hand vintage shop, Magpie, and still close to her friends, Sharon and Denise. Despite misgivings, she has agreed to support Ciara by taking part in her podcast on grief and loss ...more

    4.5 stars!

    I was on the promotional blog tour for Postscript. Thanks to the publishers HarperCollins for letting me be a part of the tour.

    A massive thank you to HarperCollins for letting me be a part of Holly’s story. To first experience the raw emotions that PS I Love You gave and then Postscript was a beautiful journey. Holly losing her husband wasn’t easy to read, but the fact that a collection of letters can bring so many loved ones together is heartwarming. I really e

    Loved the movie “PS, I Love You” with Gerard Butler as the perfect husband ... swoon! So swept up this enticing preview for the sequel, which focuses on Holly Kennedy’s life seven years after her husband’s death. Highly recommended.

    Pub Date 23 Sep 2019.

    Thanks to the author, HarperCollins Publishers Australia, and NetGalley for the review copy. Opinions are mine.

    I have to start by saying that I did not like PS I Love You. I found a lot of things about it very frustrating, but I absolutely adored this sequel. I loved this more mature version of Holly and the more matured writing of Cecelia Ahern. She has come a long way from her debut novel. This story was layered in emotion, spirituality, and love. And though I was crying for the last 20 or so pages of the book, I was left feeling uplifted and thankful. This was such a brilliant sequel and continuation ...more

    Oh my goodness me. It’s been fifteen years since ‘PS.I Love You’ was originally published. Never in a million years did I think that fifteen years down the line, Cecelia Ahern would write a sequel to the book that became a number one bestseller in multiple countries, AND end up being made into a major film starring Hilary Swank, Gerard Butler, Harry Connick JR, and Kathy Bates…to name a few. I cannot even remember when I first sat down to read ‘Ps.

    ‘It’s been seven years since Holly Kennedy’s husband died – six since she read his final letter, urging Holly to find the courage to forge a new life…’

    There was a seismic shift, the planets moved, there was a collective roar when it was announced that the very much longed for sequel to the international and New York Times bestselling PS I Love You was on it’s way…..

    AND NOW THE TIME HAS COME….

    What did Holly do next? Time to find out.

    I have been in love with Holly and Gerry’s story ever since I read it back in 2004. Wow 15 years ago!! And I have longed for a follow up to see how Holly has been getting on.

    The book has moved on 7 years. Holly is working in her sisters Ciara’s second hand shop. Holly has a new boyfriend called Gabriel who she is thinking of moving in with. Holly still sees her family every weekend for Sunday roast dinner. Which everyone gathered around the table.

    16 years after "P.S. I love you" I would have never expected a sequel to the book I liked very much so many years ago. But here it is! Wow!

    I was not sure if it's wise for Cecilia Ahern to revisit this story and its characters, if she could match the quality of the first book. I still wasn't sure after reading the first 50 pages. But as soon as Holly hooks up with the club, I was lost in this beautiful story!

    Although this was only a preview, I was instantly grasped by the story and the terrifically good plot. The part I read was a five-star read for me. Very excited and looking forward to reading more that's for sure! I think this will be equally as good as P. S. I Love You and also be one of my favourite reads of the year.

    I was really interested to know what happened to Holly after the P.S. I love you letters, and reading this sample made me want to read some more... To be honest, first few pages weren't so interesting and then, when it became more interesting - it ended.. I must say, I am very interested to read it all the way to the end. I hope I won't be disappointed in the end.

    Feels slightly more laboured than its predecessor, but at its core it's just really generous, which I loved.

    POSTSCRIPT was the sequel I never thought I needed. Let’s face it, PS I Love You finished in a good place and so it has existed for over a decade. I was worried that book two would sully the good memories I have of book one, I was worried it would disappoint, it did none of these things.

    Holly was seven years down the line from Gerry’s death, living her life, happy, in a relationship and officially in a different phase of her life from when she recceived the original letters. I wonder

    Cecelia Ahern’s debut novel, P.S I Love You, has touched millions of lives all over the world. With numerous reprints and a Hollywood film under its belt, you’d be forgiven for thinking it had gone as far as it could go. However, this year, Cecelia Ahern is returning to her beloved characters and breathing life into them once more. Postscript, set seven years after the death of Holly’s husband Gerry, invites us back into the world of unexpected letters, rolling Irish hills and the power of infin ...more

    Postscript by Cecelia Ahern is a book written as a sequel to the story of Holly Kennedy, who is still figuring out life, 7 years after the death of her husband Gerry who wrote letters to her to help her move on.

    The writing style was pretty average with less than 5 quotable paragraphs from the book. Honestly, I felt like this was one of the most useless sequels ever written. We had the closure that we needed from PS, I Love You. I adored that book so much but this makes me regret why I ever pick

    A beautiful and warm thought provoking story about love and loss and about what and who we leave behind when we’re gone.

    I absolutely adored the first book of this series PS I love you along with enjoying the film even though they were both very different. I was slightly wary about reading this because I always worry that the sequel to something I originally loved won’t live up to my expectations but I needn’t have worried.

    Postscript sees us catch up with Holly again, seven years after the death of her husband Gerry. Holly feels she is still learning to be just 'Holly' after being part of 'Holly and Gerry' for so long. Just as life seems to be moving on for her, she takes part in an interview for a podcast called 'Let's Talk About Death' where she talks to a group about just how important Gerry's letters were to her as part of her moving on. There is an unintended consequence to this which hits her for six.

    I was quite disappointing.there are to many inconsistencies from first book, ie what happens to her being a designer of shoes, what happened to daniel who worked in the bar, she met Gerry while coming back from collage trip she did not know him in school. She only had her mother & sister there was no father in first book but seams to appear in this book a d what happed to William the man she met in Ireland?

    Care: I have only the insight of reading as brief sample. A mere teaser which ended before it really began.
    We are quickly immersed into Holly’s reality 7 years on from the passing of Gerry. She has reached a new place without the means to continue in her new found strength.
    To explain she takes us back to just 3 months before. On the surface things seem great; momentous decisions can be made propelling her forward into the rest of her life.

    The arc sample for Postscript draws you back into Holly's world as if you never left. It is now seven years after Gerry's death and Holly is feeling more confident that life can go on as Holly, and maybe even Holly and Gerald. It is in this mindset that she agrees to her sister's request, to take part in a podcast sharing her grief experience, and particularly Gerry's letters, and what they meant for her.

    Facing her grief again, even seven years on is difficult and you feel her pain a

    PS, I love you was the first book I ever read by Cecilia Ahern. I loved the book. I finally got my hands on her second book to this series PostScript and I couldn't put it down. I literally read this in two days (I was supposed to have it for my flight back home to the states...oops)

    I loved how Holly has grown since she lost her husband Gerry seven years ago. She started dating a man named Gabriel and she is helping people terminal Ill leave something behind for their loved one.

To find out that Ms Ahern was writing a new book with Holly and friends, well, it made me super happy. I was lucky enough to read an e-sample of Postscipt from Netgalley, and wow, I am DYING for more!
