Love, Rosie by Cecelia Ahern
Love, Rosie was sweet and endearing love story that retelling is told by a span of five decades of emails, letters and instant messages.
Rosie is shifting through her life of letters, emails and instant messages that she has kept for the past 43 years. It gives you the important life happenings of her failures, triumphs and struggles as a child, teen, parent and care giver...as well as gives you her inner most thoughts and desires.
On one hand, I love this story. It was captivating, a deep inner look into Rosie Dunne's life but I absolutely hated the format in which it was written and it completely threw off the flow of the story. Just when you become emotionally involved its starts with a new header, the spell Ahern has masterfully woven gets broken.
RE: It would have been undoubtedly 5 stars FAVORITE read for me if it wasn't in this format.
That being said I still give it 4 stars. Who would of thunk I'd get so pulled into this love story, you no (“it is know not no”) what I mean?
This book has been made into a movie, released October 22, 2014 and it looks like a bloody brilliant love story as well, check out the trailer.
I received a copy of Love, Rosie from Hachette Books in exchange for a honest review.
