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
It was truly a journey throughout this book. I didn't want the letters from Gerry to end. What a wonderful story about true love and realistic grieving.
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.
Such a great book. I wanted to read it before I saw the movie (still haven't seen the movie!). This totally made me cry and now I might not see the movie. The books always seem better. Great read!
This book is funny all the way through. I liked it even more than the movie.
