Most of the time I read the book before I see the movie. This time I saw the movie first and loved it so much that my husband bought me the book. I was surprised when I started reading it that it is not very much like the movie at all, which usually upsets me, but this time I was really surprised that I enjoyed it a lot. I think it is a different story but as good if not better than the movie. I loved it!!!

I really enjoyed reading this book. When I saw it at the bookstore I was attracted by the book cover and the title. I took it home started reading and couldn't put it down, yet didn't want it to end either. I laughed and cried while reading this book. It even helped me get through some matters in my own life. It's a wonderful and enjoyable read, I recommended it to all my friends and I recommend to anyone that loves a true to life romantic story, rather than a fairy tale......I totally give it more than 5 stars...

Once you start reading this book, you will not put it down. I read it in one week. I would've finished it earlier if it wasn't for work lol. You will not regret it!!!!

This book was wonderful. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I loved it. I laughed, I cried, and I couldn't put it down. I passed it along to my Mother and Sister and they both loved it too. This book is a definite 'must read' for everyone.

I will admit that I wasnt thrilled with how whiney the main character was but overall I was pulled into so many different emotions laughed and teared too many times to not give this book a five star... I read the book and then watched the movie and HATED the movie compared to the book...the book is the original, not the movie and i couldnt stand how they conveyed Daniel in the movie...At times it was slow especially in the begining but then it got so good i didnt want the book to end!

from Murphy's Library If you've read some of my reviews you already know I don't deal okay with stories where people die and we see how the people this people loved go on. I know, life goes on, I know, we must move on because there are other people who need us here. I know all the sayings when it's about losing someone you love, because it's something close to my heart-well, that's life, right? I've never watched the movie PS, I Love You. Truth be told, I've watched its first 15 minutes countless times-but every time I had something else to do that didn't let me stay in front of the TV to finish watching it. Nowadays I'm glad I didn't, because it would had spoiled this beautiful story. I drove myself into an angst reading phase. As I've said on my Twenty Boy Summer review, it all started with Ballads of Suburbia, it kinda gave me strenght to finally read some of the books I was wanting for a while, but couldn't put myself together to do it. PS, I Love You was on this list, and I must say it's neck to neck with Ballads of Suburbia, I can't decide which one has touched me the most. On this beautiful story by Cecelia Ahern we see Holly, a woman who's just lost her husband after painful months fighting against brain cancer. She's trying to put herself together, picking up the little pieces that has left from her, when her mother says there's an envelope addressed to her-and when Holly asks who sent it, her mother has no idea, all she knows is that there's something else written on the envelope: The List. Before finding he was ill, Gerry used to joke he'd left Holly a list of things to do after his death, and Holly is in shock when she finds out he did it. After all, it was supposed to be just a joke. It turns out that Gerry was serious about it, and he left her 10 notes, each one should be read on a month after Gerry's passing. Holly has already missed one of them, so when she has two to read, March and April. Through the notes, Gerry helps Holly to cope with her lost, bringing her tons of memories from all the years they've been together. With the help of her family and friends-I loved Ciara!-, she tries to follow Gerry's instructions. There's not a lot more I can talk about this book without spoiling the story. PS, I Love You is about moving on without forgetting all that you've lived with the person you love so much but isn't phisically around you anymore. It's an emotional journey that brought me tons of tears, tons of laughs, and shook my world. This may not be your cup of tea if you don't like cliché dramas, and it may be the kind of book you need to prepare yourself before starting reading, but I saw myself reading it slowly, wishing it would last longer.

Although I liked the book, it was definitely a consistent feeling throughout that you were just being told what was happening within the different scenes, not just reading, feeling, and experiencing it, as you would through other novels. There were so many startling places throughout in which things seemed out of place, and the point of view switched so quickly at one point, that it was noticeable. The best moments, though, were the descriptions of emotions that Holly was feeling over losing Gerry, and it was touching. Overall, I was disappointed in this book, and thought the movie was much better, but although I haven't read this author's latest books, I have a feeling that her stories will continue to get better, so I will definitely give her another chance.

This was a very well-written book. It made me cry and then made me laugh out loud while the tears were still streaming down my face in the next line. The characters were not perfect, they were flawed and realistic. A very real look at how people deal with grief.

This book is a must read! Enough said.

STOP!!! Okay so you've seen the movie and are thinking why bother as it is the same thing right? Wrong! The books are more often then not better than the movies but this is not the case. They could go toe to toe for how wonderful they both are. It is a heart wrenching story about love and loss the everyone can relate to. So pick the book up along with two boxes of tissues and have a good time. You won't regret it.

The movie is cute and romantic but the book is always better. Holly and Gerry take you on a journey even when one is no longer living. Highly recomended.

Wonderful book! It is well written bringing the reader through the roller coaster of emotions that the main character; Holly is feeling during her recovery from the death of her beloved husband. Both a comedy and a tragedy I recommend this book highly. The only thing to complain about is that the end of it did not live up to my expectations compared to the rest of the book. Overall this book is a wonderful find and I highly recommend it.

While I think the idea of this book, Holly following letters of her deceased husband, was a very good idea, I don't feel like the author explored the idea enough. She easily could have made it more deep, and thoughtful but it felt like a very 'on the surface' type of writing. I thought the book was SOOO predictable, I could have told you everything that was going to happen from beginning to end. The only part that slightly raised my eyebrows was when Daniel got back together with Laura, but not that surprising. I literally rolled my eyes at the very end when Holly meets that guy at the shop. I have yet to see the movie but I hear it is much different from the book and I really want to watch it, maybe I'll have better luck with the movie! I would not recommend this book to anyone unless they were very bored and had nothing else to read.

If you have seen the movie and have now decided to read the book, I must warn you that the book if very different from the movie. Some of the things that are the same are: Gerry dying of a brain tumor and him leaving letters for Holly to follow after his passing. I know you will enjoy it as I did. Not once did the movie come to mind when I ran across a difference. I guess before I began reading I told myself that the book came before the movie, so there would be differences. This book will make you laugh, cry, and have you do a little bit of soul-searching.

Make sure you have tissues nearby, because this book will make you cry just as much as it makes you laugh. Cecelia Ahern draws you in with her strong use of voice. She makes you feel like you are in the story! I would definitely recommend this "chick-lit" book to women over 15. I passed it on to my sister and mother and they  absolutely loved it! I 100% recommend!
