    "100% pure pleasure"

    I was going to describe this book as a guilty pleasure but decided against it. After all why should anybody feel guilty for enjoying such a lovely heartwarming story? Cecelia Ahern is a skilled storyteller who has dealt with a difficult subject with compassion and an appropriate level of humour. The story has some interesting twists and turns and kept me riveted to the end. The heroine is a delight and when her full story was revealed I had a genuine lump in my throat. This is screaming to be made into a film but in the meantime I thoroughly recommend this audiobook and the beautiful narration by Aoife McMahon.

    "Predictably lovely"
    Would you listen to How to Fall in Love again? Why?

    It's quite predictable but in a way that you feel your in safe hands. It's a lovely easy listening chick lit with great main characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Fall in Love?

    The happy ending of course! And I loved the part where she goes into the freezing lake to get theory pad.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Where she delivered the lily pad to Maria

    Story
    "Predictable and disappointing"
    Would you try another book written by Cecelia Ahern or narrated by Aoife McMahon?

    I have listened to and read many Cecelia Ahern books in the past and find most of them to be an easy and enjoyable read so I would definitely read another. I would also listen to a story narrated by Aoife McMahon in the future, she sounds very natural and conveys the characters very well.


    Do you think How to Fall in Love needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I don't think it needs a sequel, things were tied up quite nicely at the end even if it was predictable and the subject wasn't interesting enough to warrant another book.


    Any additional comments?

    Having read Ceclia Ahern's books before, I thought she may finally be delving into something deeper dealing with such a serious subject matter here, however the story and solution was so unrealistic it was almost frustrating. There were some touching moments but overall, it was difficult to really connect to Adam and I was more interested in Christine's life. I probably would have enjoyed the book more if it was just about her, without the looming love story.
