Here is a book review of

P.S. I Love You By Cecelia Ahern

About The Author

Cecelia Ahern is an Irish novelist she wrote her first novel P.S. I Love when she was 21 years old.

She has written many other novels including The Book Of Tomorrow which I reviewed here.

She has sold over 25 million copies of her novels around the world.

Story Line Of The Novel

This novel tells a story of Holly and Gerry who are childhood sweethearts they are happily married.

They are very close that nothing can separate them until the unthinkable happens.

Gerry is diagnosed with cancer he fight with Holly on her said but sadly doesn’t make it.

Holly is left devasted with Gerry’s death.

On her 30th birthday, Holly discovered that Gerry had left her notes to open each month to help her move on with her life without him.

Each note is sighed PS, I love you hence the title of the novel.

With the support of family, friends and the notes from Gerry Holly finally get her life together she finds herself laughing, crying, dancing, singing.

What I Thought About This Novel

The novel P.S. I Love You has been made into a movie, although I had not seen the movie, reading this novel was like watching a real life story.

I like the way the novel is written it’s easy to understand and the story line is a touching and emotional one.

The idea of P.S. I Love You notes made the novel more interesting and fun.

It showed how grieving for a loved one is a difficult process and how important it is to get support from other people around you.

It also shows that each person has their own way of grieving so it’s important to give them time and space during this time.

Knowing that they will eventually get through this difficult time in their life.

In the novel, we see Gerry ‘s parent soon after the death of their child they closed off the relationship between themselves and their daughter in law.

They later regrated this.

We also see this in real life sometimes grieving will drive people into bitterness and resentfulness.


I would recommend this book to anyone.

I am looking forward to reading more novels from Cecelia Ahern.

Over to you…
