PS, I Love You | [Cecelia Ahern]

PS, I Love You

High school sweethearts Holly and Gerry were the kind of married couple that could finish each other's sentences, and even when they fought (like over who would be the one to get out of bed to turn off the light each night) they laughed. Holly didn't know where she'd be without Gerry. No one did. And that's how "The List" started...as a joke. If anything were to happen to Gerry, he'd have to leave Holly a list of things she must do in order to make it through the day in one piece.

Publisher's Summary

High school sweethearts Holly and Gerry were the kind of married couple that could finish each other's sentences, and even when they fought (like over who would be the one to get out of bed to turn off the light each night) they laughed. Holly didn't know where she'd be without Gerry. No one did. And that's how "The List" started...as a joke. If anything were to happen to Gerry, he'd have to leave Holly a list of things she must do in order to make it through the day in one piece.

Then, at the age of 30, Holly experiences the unimaginable. Gerry is diagnosed with a terminal illness. Holly doesn't know how she'll go on without him, and in truth, she doesn't want to. But Gerry has different plans for Holly. Two months after Gerry's death, Holly emerges from her house to retrieve a mysterious package. When she opens it up, she finds that Gerry was true to his word. He's left her "The List": a letter for each of the ten months following his death, each signed, "PS, I love you." The letters instruct Holly to perform a series of unexpected tasks. Some leave her laughing out loud, others shaking in her boots. Whether performed alone or with her best friends, the tasks ultimately show Holly a much larger world than the one she's been forced to leave behind.

Surrounded by friends with razor-sharp wits and a raucously endearing family that smothers, loves, and drives her crazy, Holly wobbles, weaves, weeps, and jokes her way around a new life. From a fresh new voice in fiction, PS, I Love You is a tender, funny, unexpectedly romantic novel that listeners will treasure in their hearts and minds long after the story ends.

    "Sweet but not smothering"

    Since the listener knows going in that the story deals with the death of a young husband, he/she should be prepared for grieving. The sweet touch here comes in the form of family and friends prepared to go the distance with the widow in some funny and unusual ways brought about by a list written and left by the dying husband. The story takes place in Ireland and the reader does a commendable job of communicating both the lilt of the language and the subtlety of meanings. Widow, Holly, is a character for whom one wants to root; her friends are funny, devoted people one wishes would populate her own life; her family is open and supportive; and there is a depth of young love demonstrated here that's refreshing. Well done!

    "Great Family Dynamics"

    This is a book about loss and growth. The author touchingly portrays young Holly's grief at the loss of her husband, credibly drawing on the listener's sympathy. Where the book really shines, however, is the relationships between all the adult siblings and the extended group of friends. The listener feels a part of the twenty-something lifestyle. The narrator is fabulous. If you've family in Ireland, this book feels and sounds like home.

    "PS I LOVED IT!"

    Loved it all. The zany characters, quirky humor and heartfelt grief. I like the idea of the List. Hated leaving the car. Ended up bringing the last disc in the house to finish.

    "I enjoyed the MOVIE better!"

    Usually, I prefer the book to the movie in about 99.9% of the books but in this case I preferred the movie. I still enjoyed reading the book and I think that the narration possibly had something to do with why I enjoyed the movie better but not sure.

    "This book was a fun read"

    I liked this book, however it was kind of a sad slow book. It did not keep my interest in the fact that I had to know what would happen next but I did enjoy it. Not as good as Love, Rosie though

    "OK, I hope the movie is better!"

    This is the typical sad love story book that gets made into a movie. It was an OK read but not great.

    "Enjoyable and Uplifting"

    I hesitated purchasing this audiobook because of some of the movie and audiobook reviews I read. However, I am glad that I bought it. I really enjoyed the story line. Sure, it reminded me of "Sam's Letters to Jennifer", and others, but I liked it.
