Sigh! What a touching and beautifully realistic love story of modern times! That’s how I feel about this gorgeous book Love, Rosie by Cecelia Ahern.
Let me start by saying I had watched the movie long back and found it quite cute. And then sometime earlier this month, I thought I need some chick-lit romance in my life. Pretty much how I got around to reading this one!
Coming to the characters, Rosie is a bumbling idiot who is always out to do the wrong things or rather choosing the wrong guy. It takes a lot of years for her to figure out the love of her life is none other than the best friend from childhood.
Ahern takes us through Rosie’s life for pretty much 40 odd years and for more times than one, we wish Rosie ended up with her dude already. Sprinkled with what I would say the right amount of drama, this modern romance has all the makings of a beautiful read. What I loved about the book is that it was super realistic. I could so correlate with the confusion that prevails in Rosie’s head most of the times. I would have done a lot of things the way she had, given the situations she found herself in.
The fact that I couldn’t stop imagining Lily Collins as Rosie just added to my liking the book even more. I am gonna stop here and say people if you love a good romance, this book is for you. Typically not a fan of Ahern’s writing, I found this one adorable though!
Go ahead, guys! Read this one and tell me what you think of it. Like, love, hate anything at all!
