    I made the mistake of seeing the movie before reading the book thinking that the book is always better than the movie And the movie changed so much of the book that it made it difficult to settle into the book as an independent standalone work I have mixed feelings about both the book and the movie which is irrelevant except that it influenced my experience of the book I'm impressed that Cecilia Ahern was able to imagine the scenario flush it out and write an okay novel about it at only 21 years old And as a nice sweet novel it workedI guess But I've been widowed for 2 12 years right now I was 27 and my husband 28 when he died and from a grief standpoint and as representation of a believabe human experience I only give it a C Some of the issues raised are spot on but the level of healing and closure both gag worthy terms to a young widow that Holly achieves in only a year are ridiculously unrealistic I've met many young widows and widowers over the past 2 12 years and all of them would agree that the plot of the novel is unrealistic But hey people read to escape to vicariously experience a fantasy world The sad part is that our culture is horrible at understanding grief and stories like this although sweet and pretty only serve to reinforce false assumptions about what grief and widowhood are like for those who've never experienced it themselves If only life widowhood and grief were as neat and tidy as Cecilia Ahern imagined

    I seem to be one of very few who didn't like this book First of all I must point out that I love girlie books and cry at anything even the slightest bit sad With that said I didn't enjoy it at all and couldn't wait for it to end I WANTED to like it I hoped something would happen to make me change my opinion but it didn't 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 honestly she just annoyed me Her friends annoyed me Her family except her mum I liked her annoyed me And the notes from Gerry what a sweet romantic idea but I didn't get that from them at all Even they lacked any realism or real emotion for meI'm glad it's over A BIG thumbs down for me

    PS I Love You is a beautiful story that deals with love and bereavement Holly has recently lost the love of her life Gerry to a brain tumor Now widowed at a young age she struggles to get her life back together Holly’s mother explains that before Gerry died he wrote a series of notes to help encourage her to get back to living life without him Over the course of the year she opens these messages PS I promised a list so here it is The following envelopes must be opened exactly when labeled and must be obeyed And remember I am looking out for you so I will knowFor me it’s so easy to resonate with Holly I haven’t experienced losing a husband but if this happened to me it would be a complete life altering event The anguish loneliness and heartbreak would be too much to bear It’s nearly impossible for Holly to get back on her feet andthe author did an amazing job describing the emotions and fears a grieving person deals with after lossDuring Holly’s healing journey she also reflects on their relationship and some of the things she wishes she’d done differently These reminiscing bits were what sparked much of my emotion and morphed me into an emotional bawl bag Luckily Holly has strong support from family and friends but even those relationships have challenges ahead Holly’s blood boiled and as she spoke her voice shook with rage “And you wonder why I don’t go out with you Because of stupid insensitive remarks like that Did you ever think for one moment that it might be hard for me? The fact that all you talk about are your bloody wedding arrangements and how happy you are and how excited you are and how you can’t wait to spend the rest of your life with Tom in wedded bliss In case you hadn’t noticed Denise I didn’t get that chance because my husband died But I am very happy for you really I am”This is my second reading I decided to revisit the book after winning a copy of the seuel Postscript In all honesty there was emotion during this second reading; however it felt like the book dragged in parts and some of the emotion was lost for me There were some changes I appreciated in the film location the removal or changing of some characters how Holly and Gerry meet and other plot changes Perhaps the biggest difference of all between the two is Gerry; he’s brought to life in the movie Regardless in the end there’s just no comparison to the book which has so much detail with Holly’s pain challenges and struggles to finding a new normal In addition the book has much development on the family some of which aren’t in the movie and supporting characters With that said I enjoyed both the book and movie for what they are 4

    Read it still in manuscript and fell in love I knew it would be bestseller One of my favorites among the books and authors I discovered as editor and bought rights for Serbia

    So badly written that it detracted from the touching and interesting premise 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 writing was obvious unsubtle clichéd and dull I did not connect with the characters and felt no emotional connection whatsoever with the story or the protagonist I did not care what happened in the end Having said this I can see why this will be made into a film The premise is actually not that bad Widow receives a letter from her dead husband which he wrote before he died along with 11 other instalments to be read monthly to help her bereavement It actually sounds really naff now I write it But I honestly think the film will be far superior to the book I hope so anyway This does really annoy me though It seems that to have your novel made into a film you don’t have to be a good writer You just have to have a good idea Seems a bit unfair to me

    I believe that you should always leave loved ones with loving words It may be the last time you see them I've read and liked those words since long time ago but never really took time to think about it until an incident 8 years agoThat day I was talking on the phone with Dad It was just a casual conversation Dad was planning to come to Bandung at weekend so he asked me did I want him to bring something for me and such Things were usual until when we were gonna ended our conversation Usually at the end of our phone call I'd like to say Love you Dad That time I didn't know why but I hesitated to say it So I just said Okay take care Pi to which he said You too kiddo Be good Love youThat was our last phone call Two hours after that my mom called to inform that Dad got a very bad headache and they were on the way to hospital Turns out it was a first symptom of stroke When I came to Jakarta he was in comatose state and he never woke up againTo this day I still regret for not saying the i love you words at our last conversationAnd that's when the words dawned on me I promise myself that whenever I part with someone I love I'll leave them with loving wordsUsually I try to keep that promise But sometimes I forget and parted after the heated argument with my loved onesThe second incident happened around January 2009At that time I had someone that I consider as my significant other We've been together since the 1st grade at Elementary School Yepalmost 21 years together at that time We're a childhood sweetheart the same with Holly Gerry from this bookUnlike many other stories about childhood sweetheart we started as a couple turn to best friend while still considered ourselves a s couple then being a true best friend and finally a true couple kok ribet yaaOf course like Holly Gerry we could finish each other's sentences We too could read other's mind I know him than I know myself and vice versa That's what 20 years of relationship did to usWe were also a cool couple Cool in terms of we rarely argue because of jealousy As an example when I saw a pretty lady I'm gonna tell him like this Eh liat deh arah jam sekian Cakep ya And after looking for some seconds just seconds Longer than that then he's in a deep shit LOL he's gonna say Yep Nice booty Very sexy boobs Things also happened the other way aroundSee? How cool are we? kok jadi pamer ya?We're one of those couples that have thing you called as a comfortable silence We could sit together for hours saying nothing and just enjoying each other's companion We've found home in each other's presenceFor me he's not just a boyfriend He was also my bestfriend my dream keeper my most loyal supporter my soulmate or to sum it in one word my significant otherBut it's all ended in one nightThat night we had a plan to hang out with our friends at our usuall place He was supposed to pick Widya up our friend whose house located between mine and his before pick me up then heads to our meeting place Because of overslept he was late picking Widya upBack then I was a very very very punctual person I could be really mad just because one minte late from the schedule So at that time though I know it was really irritating I kept calling him just to ask him where he was and asked him to drive fasterI knew he was annoyed with my constant calls mainly cause I called him while he was driving But I was selfish that time and I didn't care so I just kept callingWhen he arrived at Widya's home he called me back and asked Iya? Kenapa babe?Now we're not the kind of couple who used petnames Naythat's not our style Usually we just call each other with our name real name I mean Or using missy boy in a casual argument And lady sir if we wanted to tease each otherBut he had this habit to call me with petnames when he was mad at me He'd call me cutie pie honeydew love well you knowpetnames like that I asked his reason once and he said So you'll know no matter how mad I was to you I still love you YeahI know that's cheesyThe sweeter he called me means the annoyed he was So on the 1 to 10 scale with 10 being the maddest babe was on number 5 Usually when I know he's on the 5th scale and up I'm gonna back off and calm him downBut that night I was really pissed too So I replied him still with an annoyed tone Dimana sekarang? Udah nyampe rumah Wiwid Sayang Kata dia tunggu bentar Dia masih siap siap On his list sayang was on number 8th Cepetaaaannnnn Iya Cinta Sabar yaaa Cinta got the 10th score on his list So actually that time I knew that he was really really mad with me Usually cinta is a sign for me to seriously back off and calm down But still I didn't wanna do it that night Udah dulu ya Tar gw telpon kalo Wiwid udah siap jalan Love youSince the period when we had a long distance relationship we made it a habit to end our conversation with love you and such no matter how mad we were at each other Again that day I wasn't in the mood to say it back and just answer him with Yeah whatever Cepetan ya Gw tungguNot an hour later I got a phonecall from Widya She told me about an accident that involved him and now they were on their way to hospital When I got to hospital he was already unconscious He never wakes up again Turns out the love you was his last words to me and yeah whatever cepetan ya Gw tunggu was my last response to him Bad eh?It's been almost 4 years since that There are many things that I've learned and could accept with nowI have learned that being punctual is good but being a very very very punctual person is a pain in the assI could deal with the pain of losing him and have the dreamless sleep nowI don't ask the universe any why 20 years long of relationship had to ended so abruptly like that I just accept it as the way it should beI could forgive the destiny for taking away someone who has a very bright future ahead in such a young ageI believe that this is the best for him and for everyone around him Actually I still can't see why but I just wanna believe that coz God always makes the best plan for His peopleButI still regret my last words to him I still can't truly forgive myself for ended our conversation after a heated argument like that At least with my Dad things were good between usAnd for me this fact still hard to deal withI envy HollyNo I'm not saying that Holly's situation is easier or better than mine There's no use in making comparison here She lost her man gradually and I lost him so abruptly blahboth are a fucked up situation to be in I envy him cause she has times to bide her loved ones a proper goodbyeI also envy her because even 1 year after he left she still got his letters that showing her how much he loves her I know it's lame but sometimes back in the past when I sort his things off I wished that I got his letters or even note or anything that I could consider as his goodbye yeahI know I've watched too many lame movies Or at least a note which tells me that he knows though I was pissed at him on our last conversation but I still love himYupthat was one thing that I envy the most from Holly Because Holly made sure that Gerry knew she loves him when he left this world The one thing that I didn't doHey you up there I hope you could read thisPS I love you “Finding someone you love and who loves you back is a wonderful wonderful feeling But finding a true soul mate is an even better feeling A soul mate is someone who understands you like no other loves you like no other will be there for you forever no matter what They say that nothing lasts forever but I am a firm believer in the fact that for some love lives on even after we're gone” PS All in all for me this is a good book Unrealistic actually about that moving on things the just 1 year time span which made it kinda unrealistic but still it's a good read Through Holly's journey and Gerry's letter I got some lessons about healing On the other hand she was a women with a million happy memories who knew what it was like to experience true love and who was ready to experience life love and make new memories Whether it happened in ten months or ten years Holly would obey Gerry's final message Whatever lay ahead she knew she would open her heart and follow where it ledIn the meantime she would just live” Just like Holly I'm a woman with a million happy memories I could also proudly said that once in my life I knew what true love wasAnd I also knew that whatever lay ahead I'd open my heart and follow where it led But for now while waiting that to happen I'll just liveThank you Ahern for made me realize that a happy ending has many kind of shades

    I was really expecting a lot from this book being that it has been made into a movie but I was fairly disappointed I understand that Ahern is a young writer but she really does have a LOT of work to do with her writing skills And maybe she could pick up a thesaurus to find a substitute word for sarcastically as she uses it to death in this book there's no need to state the obvious in my opinion I suppose that I'm drawn to strong proactive and independent main characters and I spent a lot of time feeling like Holly was whining throughout the whole book I know that may sound harsh considering she is dealing with the loss of her husband and while I can't relate to dealing with something like that I had a difficult time sympathizing with herThe ending was the most anti climatic ending I've read in a while Overall I probably wouldn't recommend this book to many people and most likely won't even see the movie because of it and who would cast Hilary Swank for Holly's character in the first place??

    I watched the movie somewhere around 20082009 and have finally got around to reading the book almost 10 years later Although the basic plot remains the same the situations events described are uite different in both versions but I can say I enjoyed reading the book as much as I enjoyed the movie maybe the movie a bit because of Gérard Butler ❤️❤️ A solid 35 rating

    After being obsessed with the movie for months I decided to take the plunge and read the book Finally And I can tell you that the book was eually as satisfying but completely different to the Gerard Butler perv fest that I so dearly loveThere 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 think I probably did it the right way round watching the movie first and reading the book secondI'm giving it 4 stars for because Cecilia Ahern is just so easy to read It reuires no effort to get into a rhythm and it's the perfect little book to pick up when you're in between epics She tackles grief without making you feel life is pointless There is always hope And I think that's what Gerry gives Holly in her first year without him hope for a new lifeI'd say this little story gave me a similar feel good feeling to The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks It didn't matter that it was tragic it still managed to really touch me Really it was beautifulRead this novel if You're looking for something inbetween other books and don't want to have to work too hard to enjoy the charactersDon't read this novel if You think you could feel disconcerted or upset by the intense overwhelming grief Holly is struggling to come to terms with
