What happens when two people who are meant to be together can't seem to get it right?
Rosie and Alex are destined for each other, and everyone seems to know it but them. Best friends since childhood, they are separated as teenagers when Alex and his family relocate from Dublin to Boston.
Like two ships always passing in the night, Rosie and Alex stay friends, and though years pass, the two remain firmly attached via emails and letters. Heartbroken, they learn to live without each other. But destiny is a funny thing, and in this novel of several missed opportunities, Rosie and Alex learn that fate isn't quite done with them yet.

"Addictively page-turning, delightfully unexpected and romantic, Love, Rosie is a novel that will keep readers laughing and guessing until the very last page." (Irish Herald)
Short, Simple, No Spoilers
Not a fan of the genre, so let the haters hate. Bought this for my daughter and in a period between good books, gave it a listen, too. Rosie and best friend fall in love at different points in time, not quite syncing up as they travel through life choices. The book was infinitely long and I sped it up to finish. Have a thing about finishing what I start, no matter how bad. It wasn't terrible, but there was nothing new or spectacular. Loved the narrator, but do not recommend the book.
I read this book once. It was loaned to me by one of my sister's friends. I loved it so much that I didn't want to give it back and if I had money at that time I would have bought it from the girl. However she loved the story as much as I so was reluctant to sell it.
When I started audio, I remembered the book and I searched google, amazon and audible to see if it was available. I couldn't find it and I was disappointed. Then I saw that the title was changed and I was even more ecstatic that it was available in audio. I do not mind the email structure of book, I found it refreshing because I have never read a book like that. It made it unique now I have it in audio so I can listen to it whenever I want to. I just goes to show that we can't run from fate and what is meant be will be. Once you set your goals stick to it have fate and your dreams will come through with hiccups and pitfalls along the way.
I loved the shorter version of love rosie. you are with the characters n story till the end. I loved it so much that I hot greedy n decided to use my credit on this version. it sucked big time. the narrator isn't able to tie the listeners at all. that is the worst when you are listening it. that's first worst part. second, author has thrown some unnecessary plots in it to make story longer it seems. she tends to forget that this is about Rosie n Alex.
all in all very dissatisfied n disappointed. I wish I could get my credit back.
Hard to follow at times because the constant repeating of the characters names. story is told all through written letters and instant messaging. Different.
It took a few chapters to get used to the letter reading format being read to me, that was a bit weird. But the hardest part for me personally, and I say personally because 4 people heard this story together and I was the only one who felt this way, the hard part for me was I felt as though the author went way too far to discribe a scene or emotion, especially when it came to Rosie. As the story progressed so did the lists of unneeded details. I get what she was trying to do to get us there in the book, but it was too much for me. But It was great for our car ride and opened up for great post-season discussion.
