Our customer reviews

This is the story of Alex and Rosie who are best friends since their young age . we can see their friend ship going on over the years despite the fact that Alex had to moved to the US with his family . Rosie had a difficult life having a girl at the age of 18; she saw all her dreams going into ashes and was she confronted to the real life of a young mother. During this period, Alex moved to Harvard to become a heart doctor . One fact is they quite never lost contact with each other despite their own life and their own difficulties to deal with life . They were quite always supportive to each other and very helpful in the other's life. During all those years, they will be in touch via instant messages, letters, invitations, e-mails. So don't be surprised by the form of the book. There are many people involved in their life such as their husband and wives; Alex's brother Phil ; Rosie family: Stephanie Kevin and her parents; Rosie best friend Ruby ..But we are also involve in the story of Katie (Rosie's daughter) and Toby who is her best friend . The big question of the book is : is a friendship between a man and a woman possible without turning in a love affair? Or can it be possible to be best friend with someone who is the opposite gender without messing up our own life ? My favorite character is Rosie : we see her fighting all over the years and she never gave up for the love of her child Katie. She was really down to eath too. Alex was also a nice person such as Ruby who were always here to help Rosie . The book is really well done. First I was on the way to put it down when I saw it was only instant messages and emails but the story is so nicely written that It quickly becomes really addictive . I wanted to know what was going next , what will happen to them, what they will answer to the other one . So I kept ready until late in the night .. It's at the same time a funny by the way they talk and by some funny times and sad book : I was so involved in Rosie's life that sometimes I wanted to cry when I saw another bad thing happened to her. SO Cecelia Ahern did a great job again . I have loved so much this book .show more
