Diane | 20 comments Any Cecilia Ahern fans? I came to read her books in a kind of roundabout way. I like this Irish group called Westlife. One of their members (Nicky) is married to Cecilia's sister Georgiana. So I learned about Cecilia on the Westlife message board lol!

But I've read PS I Love You, Love Rosie (aka Rosie Dunne in the UK) and If You Could See Me Now. I really like all of them, but PS is my fave. I didn't think I'd like If You Could See Me Now, but in the end, I found that it was very unique.

Andrea Green (angel_andie) | 9 comments I love Cecilia Ahern, I orginally only read her book because she's the daughter of our taoiseach and I thought she was probably only published because of this! But her books are brilliant! I love P.S I Love You and Where Rainbows End (also known as Love Rosie) but found that her other two - If You Could See Me Now and A Place Called Here - different but also quite good!

Rachael I enjoyed PS I Love You. I plan on reading Love Rosie soon.

Keris (kerisstainton) Do you know she created and writes for the US comedy series, Samantha Who? It was the highest rated new sitcom in the US in 2007!

Multi-talented, that Cecelia! :)

Becca (becca2) | 16 comments I've only read her short stories, but I've always loved her writing. When I saw her credit on Samantha Who, I was so excited for her--it's a great comedy.

Diane | 20 comments I haven't gotten a chance to watch Samantha Who, but have heard great things about it.

Stacy Matthews | 15 comments I just finished P.S. I Love You. I enjoyed it ,but felt like the main characters were almost sickeningly ( no pun intended) in love. There was nothing wrong with this guy! Her biggest problem, He wouldn't turn off the light before bed! It just didn't ring true for me.
Are all her books as predictable and mushy??

Maybe I have turned into a pessimist....

I do love Samantha Who. It is a very funny show with great writing!

Joanie | 19 comments I liked P.S. I Love You better than Rosie Dunn (or Dear Rosie I guess it's also called.) Rosie Dunn was really cute at the begining but then it just went on an on and on. P.S. was very predictable and mushy but I guess I was expecting that so I wasn't surprised. That said, I don't know that I'd want to read more books like that.

Samantha Who is really funny and not mushy at all, I'm impressed!

Andrea Green (angel_andie) | 9 comments Not all her books are that mushy... Can You See Me Now and A Place Called Here are actually fairly different to her first two. It's actually hard to believe they're by the same author. Samantha Who isnt airing here in Ireland but I've downloaded some episodes off the net and I love the show its so funny.
