Book Review : P.S. I Love You

A nice plot; a not so nice execution.

The book is about grieving and healing and subtly brings to fore the importance of relationships and the power of love in life.

The plot is really good but I personally feel that Cecilia Ahern could have paid more attention to the emotional bonding between Holly and Gerry (through his letters) – rather than focusing on the lives of everybody around Holly. The book starts off really well, you loose the plot midway with a lot of characters coming in and the story-line becoming a little predictable, but Cecilia manages to grab the attention to end it on a high.

There are moments where you want to laugh with Holly, moments where tears just well-up in your eyes and moments where you drift into memories of the Holly / Gerry in your life.

Plot: Good
Writing Style: Trite and Mediocre
Recommendation: A good read for the romantic-at-heart

Choco Rating: 3.5 / 5
