Talented author, but not a great book
Yes and no. It was a good introduction for me of Cecelia Ahern's style of writing, and I will definitely read more of her novels; this book was a light read, but it had too many important characters that one didn't really get to know...
Definitely! Her ability to capture narrator's emotions was incredible. It's what kept me going through as long as I did, though I ultimately didn't like the book enough to finish it.
Actually, I would... it would've made a great movie!
The book was OK; Ali Coffey's performance was quite good, with the glaring exception of her dialogue. I will read more from Ms. Ahern, but this one just didn't do it for me.
