Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gielizza | 2/9/2014

    " The book is full of drama. I like the concept of the story though it's unlikely to happen in real life. Haha "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chrissy | 2/6/2014

    " Sad at the very beginning, but overall a lighthearted, feel-good gentle read with a touch of fantasy/fairy tale quality. Would recommend to readers wanting Christian fiction, although the spiritual element is more of an undercurrent than an overt narrative force. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Abi | 1/28/2014

    " Dont like the change of Cecelia Aherns books... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Victoria Coutiño | 1/16/2014

    " An amazing, completly exciting and great book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lady Di | 1/14/2014

    " Just a quick read from the same author that wrote P.S. I Love You. Someone donates blood and the recipient gets his memories and they find each other. I guess I was drawn in by the "New Book" sticker and the cute colors on the cover..... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tuhina Neogi | 1/10/2014

    " This book of Cecelia's can be termed 'Weird in a Pleasant way'. But, it might take some time before a reader actually starts taking interest in it. What seems a practically low start, takes beautiful turns, but then at times reader might feel like dozing off again. But, overall, it was a good read. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mirka | 1/6/2014

    " It was wonderful, totally transported me into the story. I felt like the main character. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeanie | 11/18/2013

    " Chick Lit through and through. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Oceantide74 | 11/17/2013

    " 2.5 stars. Interesting concept but got frustrating towards the end. Felt like was written to be a movie with cliche scenes set up. But loved the father- great character!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joyce | 10/30/2013

    " Interesting story! Its hard to imagine that things in this story can really happen in real life but the author did a great job of creating a good story out of it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janne | 10/5/2013

    " Great book!! I liked P.S. I Love You and wondered if I would like this as well - I did! Her writing is happy, sad, fanciful - covers about every emotion and then some. This was a wonderful story!! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Zaineb | 4/23/2013

    " I got this book because I really enjoyed PS. I love you, but I was disappointed by this book. It was very slow and predictable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peg | 3/8/2013

    " Plenty of funny moments. LOL There's a part where Joyce, our heroine, takes her 78 year-old father on his first plane ride that had me laughing so hard there were tears! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jo | 11/24/2012

    " One word for this book ... actually more like a sentence ... You will not put this down till the end! Beautifully written, capturing and takes you to a different level of emotional belonging with the characters! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeliene | 9/26/2012

    " Unrealistic, but a fun read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kitty | 11/16/2011

    " Another great story by Cecelia Ahern... and I especially loved her dad. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Laurie | 6/4/2011

    " Painfully slow...I just could not finish it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeanet | 6/2/2011

    " A true Cecelia Ahern story. Although large bits of it seem quite impossible and at times rushed, I can't help but to fall in love with the kind of love the books always represent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mirka | 5/30/2011

    " It was wonderful, totally transported me into the story. I felt like the main character. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda | 5/23/2011

    " A silly book with an inane premise, but I kind of liked it anyway! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steph | 5/23/2011

    " This book was hard to get started. I also didn't love Justin at first. It did pick up about half way through and I enjoyed it by the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Isobelle | 5/15/2011

    " Hilarious, that kept me enthralled throughout. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 The | 5/15/2011

    " Like the concept of the book: woman gets blood transfusion, but receives more than just blood from her donor - memories, skills she never had before etc. She now wants to find this person she feels so close to - great story line but the two main characteres unfortunally never really come to life. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nettiemc | 5/13/2011

    " Well written, but lacking sizzle. Best relationship in it was between dad and daughter - not that there's anything wrong with that. Just not a terribly charming book. It's hard to keep the love interests apart for almost the entire story, and still make me care whether they get together at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mattie | 5/1/2011

    " The book was really slow all the way until the end, but the end was really good.. good enough for me to give the book 3 stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vivi | 4/29/2011

    " I bought this book years ago, and I had trouble reading it at first, but then, when I tried the second time, it went very well! it's a very sweet story actually. "
