I listened to this book during the 12 hours it took me to drive from West Virginia to Georgia. I loved every moment of it and would spend more time in my car than necessary just to see what would happen. Many times I had to pull my car over just so I could wipe my tears away, as corny as it sounds. I laughed, I cried (a lot), and I loved it way more than the movie. A great read for anyone. The only book I have read from this author, but I definitely plan on adding some others to my growing to be read list.

Instead of bringing one down, upon the loss of a spouse, this book shows how a young woman can grow, with wit, charm and some sadness to learn to live again. I loved this book and it is a "must read" for getting over losses without being preachy. Wonderful reading.

A story that will never leave my memory. This book made me cry tears like no other book has ever done before. It was touching and sad, and every so often laugh out loud funny. You really feel the emotions of the story. Highly recommended.

I laughed, I cried, I reminised... this is a book of love, loss and readjustments. There are some unexpected twists and turns...just like real life deals to you. The ending was just right...leads you to the conclusion, but does not carry you thru...You are left to go with your imagination...and that makes it so satisfying.
A book worth the read....

For the most part, this was a highly enjoyable book. I had a few issues with it that would be spoilers so I won't write about them. It does have some hilarious moments and other incredibly touching moments. Altogether this was a very good first book from a very young writer.

Sad and Sweet. Be prepared to laugh and cry as this goes beyond chick lit adding some real life emotions, drama and problems. The best book I've read in a long time, better then all chick lit.

I loved the story, and I do believe the book was more heartfelt than the movie. I agree that there was some Irish slang I didn't know, off the top of my head. But it was pretty easy to infer the meanings. You'd have the same problems reading any literature done by a british or irish author. Once I got over 70 pages into it, I chewed through the book in a day or so. And Holly's situation, and all the problems that she faces with the loss of her soul mate are incredibly easy to relate to. All in all, a step above your average chick-lit. :D

This is a love story (not to be confused with a romance). This is the story of how a young woman copes with the loss of her husband and the sudden change in the direction she thought her life was going in. The emotional roller coaster is well portrayed as is the depth of emotion. I was often surprised to find myself crying as I read this.

Okay, So it wasn't as good as I heard it was! It was very poorly written. I felt like the author was more stating the situations then letting the characters feelings and thoughts explain everything. The ending was good, but I wouldn't reccomend it.

Decent read, but I'm glad I did not buy it. The story line is poorly written and leaves you feeling that you are an outsider looking in rather than living out the story line with the characters. Beats boredom though.

This was a wonderful book. I haven't had time to see the movie but I always enjoy the books far more.
The story is about Holly who is learning to live again after the death of her husband Gerry. Before his death, Gerry wrote cards to Holly to open every month after he was gone. It is a truly heart touching tale of love and learing to live again.

Although I liked the book, it was definitely a consistent feeling throughout that you were just being told what was happening within the different scenes, not just reading, feeling, and experiencing it, as you would through other novels. There were so many startling places throughout in which things seemed out of place, and the point of view switched so quickly at one point, that it was noticeable. The best moments, though, were the descriptions of emotions that Holly was feeling over losing Gerry, and it was touching. Overall, I was disappointed in this book, and thought the movie was much better, but although I haven't read this author's latest books, I have a feeling that her stories will continue to get better, so I will definitely give her another chance.

One of my new favorite books! It was a very easy read and had a little bit of everything. There were parts when I got tears in my eyes and other times when I laughed out loud (not too often that a book will do that for me!). I thoroughly enjoyed it and I'm amazed that Cecilia Ahern was just 21 when she wrote it ~ what a talented author! (I also watched the movie, but enjoyed the book much, much more!)

I really enjoyed this book. I saw the movie first and found out later it was based on a book. I LOVED the movie! Usually I always think the book is better than the movie, but this time I felt like they're both great all on there own. The book is very different then the movie, but each stands on its own merit. I recommend both to everyone if your willing to keep an open mind and not compare them to harshly to each other. Both will make you laugh and cry!

Sweet, sad and funny. I am in the process of loosing my husband to a terrible illness. It took me a while to read this book, as I had to cry during each session. It is so accurate about the feelings you have during the different stages of loosing someone. I believe it really helped me to find that I am not alone in my feelings. This could be a very benificial book for widows, especially those who are still fairly young or young at heart.

Hurray to the author for a job well done. There are lots of funny parts to make the book enjoyable. The story line is about the husband leaving messages for his widow to guide her through the grief process. One chapter made me realize how selfish I am about what I am going through, and think about what my husband must be thinking now. I hope my husband wants me to be happy and continue to live after he is gone. I'm so glad I read the book.

This book is badly written and wholly unbelievable. I read it after watching the movie by the same name, as you usually find that the book is better than the movie, but not in this case. There was irrelevant chatter throughout, it droned on and on in other places and the descriptive passages were utterly boring. I was really disappointed and after the first couple of chapters, I skimmed the rest. The movie people took enough of the premise of the book (which admittedly was a charming idea) to make it watchable. Don't bother with this one. It was a drag.

A heartwarming story about family, friendship, and love. The author is at her best when writing about the aftermaths of the loss of a loved one and at her weakest when she's trying to be funny. The humor is often forced but that becomes a minor quibble as we gradually came to know her characters and became engrossed in their lives.

Read this book because the movie is coming out in December and I really want to see the movie. I ended up enjoying the book much more than I thought I would. It made me laugh and cry.

Every once in a while I'll read a "chick lit" novel and I'm glad I picked this one up. I had seen the movie, which I really enjoyed but it was very different from the book. Really the only similarities were the names of the characters and the premise of the story, and a few of the letters. I thought the book was quite enjoyable and look forward to reading Ahern's other books. Well worth the time if you want to read something that doesn't require a lot of thought...just really, really good stories.

I really enjoyed this book. I listened to the abridged audio version which was read by a delightful Irish actress (Victoria Smurfit), which I highly recommend. This was a story about a young woman named Holly whose husband dies unexpectedly. He leaves her notes for the months following his death of things she must do which are meant to help her heal and move on. There is much sadness in this story, but there is also much love and healing, and Holly has many wonderful friends and family members who help her along the way. I really enjoyed the journey and the ending--although not completely what I expected--just felt right.

From Back cover:
Holly and Gerry are the kind of perfectly happy married couple that others envy. Then, at the age of thirty, Gerry is diagnosed with a terrible illness. Months after Gerry's death, Holly receives a package of letters that he's left for her, instructing her to perform a series of unexpected tasks.
With the help of the letters--and her fun, quick-witted girlfriends and a raucously endearing family that smothers, loves, and drives her crazy--Holly bobbles, weaves, and jokes her way toward a new life, even larger than the one that she's been forced to leave behind.

Cecelia Ahern, author of ROSIE DUNNE, is the twenty-three-year-old daughter of Ireland's prime minister. PS, I LOVE YOU, her first novel, was an immediate international bestseller. Foreign rights have been sold to over forty countries and film rights have been bought by Warner Bros.

I liked her other book - Rosie Dunne - better. This was enjoyable, but it was more obvious after reading both books that this is her first book. Her character development is stronger (I thought) in Rosie Dunne.

Holly, the thirty year old heroine, lives in Dublin and loves her life. Then fate delivers a brutal blow: her beloved husband dies and leaves her a very young widow.

The book recounts Holly's first year after her husband's death. His final gift to her is a series of notes to be opened at the beginning of each month. Each note contains one suggestion to help Holly move on with her life. And each note is signed "PS, I love you."

The book is quite moving as it depicts Holly's struggle to follow her husband's suggestions-give away his clothes, take a trip with her friends-and continue living. She realizes that her life had centered almost completely on her husband--not necessarily a good thing-and now, for the first time, she has to create a life for herself.

My only complaint with the book is that I found the writing amateurish at times. The plot, the characters and the ending were all satisfying and fully developed. However, I winced at some of the writing.

Still I would recommend this book to chick lit lovers everywhere.

I LOVED this book! Such a sweet story! Quick and fast read about getting on with life after the loss of a loved one. Who wouldn't want the love of their life to leave them notes to read after their untimely death? I just got around to watching the movie this weekend. YUCK! Just read the book, the movie did not do it justice!

I sincerely never thought I would say this... but the movie was a lot better. The names, and some parts of the book, were the same as the movie, but overall, the screenwriter mainly just took the basic concept and ran with it. Normally, this bugs me. However, I think the screen writers story was much better. If you really enjoyed the movie, you might wanna pick this up...but I'd much rather you watch the movie!

An increadibly bittersweet and yet funny tale about a woman who loses her husband to cancer, and then find he's left her a "To Do" list for her first year without him leading her to do all sorts of things, from the crazy to sensible. I was given this after my grandparents died by a wonderfull friend, I laughed and cried through it. It was exactly what I needed. I'm letting it go so someone else can enjoy it as much.

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 terminal illness and dies, 30-year-old Holly is set adrift, unable to pick up the pieces. But with the help of a series of letters her husband left her before he died and a little nudging from an eccentric assortment of family and friends, she learns to laugh, overcome her fears, and discover a world she never knew existed.

The kind of enchanting novel with cross-generational appeal that comes along once in a great while, PS, I Love You is a captivating love letter to the world!

From Publishers Weekly
Ahern, the mediagenic 22-year-old daughter of Ireland's prime minister, debuts with a sweet, sentimental tale of a young widow's trials and triumphs in the year after her husband's death. Soul mates Holly and Gerry married in their early 20s; when Gerry dies of brain cancer at 30, Holly is utterly bereft. But Gerry has a final gift: a series of letters, which Holly is to open on the first of each month from March to New Year's, and which will guide her on her journey from grief. Gerry correctly predicts that Holly will not have gone through his belongings by June, found a new job by September or considered falling in love again by December, but with his posthumous epistolary encouragement she does all those things. She also enters a karaoke contest, takes a beach vacation and dances at a holiday ball she'd always attended with Gerry. The months pass as close friends help prop Holly up; around her, a marriage falls apart, a couple gets engaged and a friend announces her pregnancy. Within her tight-knit family, Holly's youngest brother makes a revealing film of her birthday party, her elder brothers change places in her allegiance and her parents take in one stray grown child after another for stays short and long. Ahern's speed (she wrote the book in three months) and her youth do show-the wisdom in evidence owes much to Nicholas Sparks and Sophie Kinsella-and her prose is pedestrian. She boasts a natural storytelling talent, however, resulting in a compelling tale sparked by an unusual premise.
