[R] Love, Rosie, by: Cecelia Ahern

Love, Rosie
by: Cecelia Ahern


Sometimes you have to look at life in a whole new way...

From the bestselling author of PS, I Love You comes a delightfully enchanting novel about what happens when two people who are meant to be together just can't seem to get it right.

Rosie and Alex are destined for one another, and everyone seems to know it but them. Best friends since childhood, their relationship gets closer by the day, until Alex gets the news that his family is leaving Dublin and moving to Boston. At 17, Rosie and Alex have just started to see each other in a more romantic light. Devastated, the two make plans for Rosie to apply to colleges in the U.S.

She gets into Boston University, Alex gets into Harvard, and everything is falling into place, when on the eve of her departure, Rosie gets news that will change their lives forever: She's pregnant by a boy she'd gone out with while on the rebound from Alex.

Her dreams for college, Alex, and a glamorous career dashed, Rosie stays in Dublin to become a single mother, while Alex pursues a medical career and a new love in Boston. But destiny is a funny thing, and in this novel, structured as a series of clever e-mails, letters, notes, and a trail of missed opportunities, Alex and Rosie find out that fate isn't done with them yet.

Tears everywhere! The book was outstanding and I couldn't find it better. I have never read a book by Cecelia Ahern and now, I want to read them all. It was such a good book, you all should read it and if you root for love like me, its a READ IT NOW book.

Love, Rosie is a chick lit book and some of you know that I sort of don't read them. I made an exception with this book because two reasons. One, I read in the synopsis that it was composed by a lot of letters, emails and stuff like that, which I really like. Two, the movie is coming the next year and I pledge to read a book before watching its movie. So, why the hell not?

As I said, the book is composed by letters, emails, instant messages, chat rooms and everything you can send via mail or internet. There are no point of views, until the epilogue of course, but I will talk about that later. The book's title have its name because of Rosie, the main character signs her letters.... Love, Rosie.

The book is very fast forward, first we are in first grade or something, then Rosie it's 16 and at the end she is 50. We see her whole life, but not only hers, also Alex's. Our dear Alex is another main character and Rosie's best friend forever. Their relationship goes from when they were little rascals to old as wind ages. And it sorts to complicated to describe without saying to much of the book.

The last chapter, the epilogue, was just the perfect ending for this ups and downs roller coaster. Like the ver last line, "and they smiled." Tears, tears streaming down my cheeks. I couldn't afford other emotion. I fight with the characters, I laughed at their jokes and I felt sad about the grief moments, but that's how a book is suppose to do with you and I loved that kind of journey. You, who is reading this, read the precious book. ASAP!
