Playful and at times intensely moving, this is a novel about how seeing isn't always believing. Full of Cecelia Ahern's trademark warmth and poignancy, If You Could See Me Now is a story of enormous hear, and just a little bit of magic.

"Ahern tempers heartbreak with hope and playfulness in this uplifting, sentimental tale." (Publishers Weekly)
Everyone has their own tastebuds (as my son says). Another reviewer hated this narrator. Perhaps it's because I'm a sucker for Scottish, Welsh and Irish accents, I totally enjoyed both readers. The voice for the imaginary friend was a tad odd, but uh, so is an invisible buddy, eh? By the end I thought his narration was spot on. The story was very unique and dealt with imaginary friends in a way I've never encountered before. Very creative, thought provoking and well worth the listen.

Never expected the depth of emotion this book triggered. Wonderful story that made you want to believe like a kid again!
I loved this book, the storyline is excellent. Would easily follow a series of stories with these characters. The readers were also excellent and brought that third dimension to this book. Thank you Cecelia for being such an enlightened and talented writer!
It was an unexpected story from this author. I read her first book "P.S. I love you" a couple years ago and loved it. And then skipped her second book "Rosie Dunne" because of the style. I picked up this one because I really like the first and was surprised that there was a fantasy element to it. However, it was a good development of characters and I found it fun and easy to listen to. Good narration. I would recommend for an easy read.
If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again there is no use in reading it at all. Oscar Wilde
The idea that a grown person can have an imaginary friend, its a cute idea. Every once in a while you find yourself needing a childish moment in life, this book really reminds you to take a moment and bring out just that. This was an adorably written story with some twist. I think it was worth the credit.
This book is a complete waste of time, she should have stopped writing with P.S I love you. This book is about a whinney five year old and her painfull imaginary friend, save yourself some money and pass this one by
