Today, I finally read the novel that has been mentioned so many times by so many people and which, according to it's cover, is Cecilia Ahern's BESTSELLING debut novel and I found it...likable enough. That's it. Here's what I loved about the story: Gerry and his heart-melting final letters OF COURSE (which added that special and unique touch to the story). Aside from that, I enjoyed all the scenes with Holly's family in them and I thought her friends, Sharon and Denise, were the bestest and truest friends a girl could have.
However, the rest of it was not completely satisfying especially the ending where Daniel, the potential love interest, took a complete U-turn after declaring his feelings for Holly. I was unsure whether they would get together in the end but any outcome would have been fine. I just didn't expect him to get back together with his ex-fiance'. Not in a million years. Honestly, throughout the book, I didn't find Daniel himself interesting enough (like Holly). He was BORING so I didn't even feel excited for them to end up together. In short, I did have a good time reading this book and some scenes made me choke up and smile and laugh even BUT all I can say is that I'm glad that this wasn't the first book I read written by Cecilia Ahern!
