This is a great story of love and life.
This is a tale of slowly falling in love with yourself, and your best friend.
The way the story was told through letters was an interesting foil for the story. It made it captivating, and entertaining. The performances for each character were unique and allowed me to develop them in my minds eye. Such a lovely story.
It is hard to describe how good this book is. Once you get use to the style you get pulled into the world of Rosie and Alex. It is a bittersweet story of years lost due to misunderstandings and life generally getting in the way.
It can make you cry and before you know it you are laughing and identifying with the characters!
This is the best book I have heard this year!

I had watched the movie Love, Rosie prior to reading this, and didn’t even realise it was based on a book until a friend brought it to my attention and recommended that I read it, and I’m so glad I took their advice.
Being aware of the gist of the story from before didn’t make this experience any less than it might have been. I was utterly charmed from the get go and found myself really enjoying the style of presentation; both in the writing and audio narration. The story itself is funny and quirky and heartbreaking all at the same time and I absolutely loved it.
The ideas in the book are brilliant but the writing was cringeworthy and the narrations even more so. I love accents but when listening to an audiobook the Irish and Scottish accents were frustrating. It was also hard to follow as an audiobook because of the letter format where it switched between the characters' perspectives. I usually prefer the book to the movie version but this was definitely an exception.
