    Anyone read this? Just started it having given up on Sushi For Beginners

    It seems to be getting off to a good start. It's about a woman who is trying to find herself after having intentionally gone missing. She is obsessed with finding everything she loses because a girl her age went missing when she was 10 and was never found.

    Im absolutely loving it so far. It's got a touch of the fantasy genre but just the right amount. Self-discovery is a big theme in it.

    I bought this book today, I've almost finished one of her other books called PS I Love You which is amazing. I love her style of writing so i though i'd give her newest book a shot =] I read the 1st page in the shop to see if it started as good as the other one and it definately looks like a good read i can't wait to start it xx

    I just started readingthis now. Im only upto chapter 3. I would recommend Where Rainbow's End. That is my favourite book by here. PS I love you is brilliant but WRE is even better. I have also read If You Could See Me Now - that was interesting but nowhere near as good as the other two.

    Oh my god PS I Love You the film would be amazing, it's such a great story, parts of it actually brought tears to my eyes but thats just because i'm stupidly soppy. I came across PS I Love You in a shop and i thought i'd give it a go i'm so glad i did because it's one of the best books i've read. I've been looking at getting her other books, i'll definately get Where Rainbows End next x

    Sorry i'll shoosh about the film now :P I found some reviews of the books:
    This is kinda the backround info for PS I Love You http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PS,_I_Love_You
    There are some reviews on here http://www.amazon.co.uk/PS-Love-You-.../dp/0007165005

    And this gives reviews for A Place Called Here, although a lot of the reviews aren't that good :/ - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Place-Called...348049-4750069

    I do want to see the film, but the films are never as good as the books. plus its all american actors and american places - whereas the book is Irish. I just don't want the film to spoil the book because it's fantastic lol

    I was actually thinking that when i saw the cast who are playing the characters. I think one of the nicest things about the book is the fact that it's set in Ireland and isn't like the typical American stories. I hope they don't ruin it too much, i guess i'll have to wait and see =] x

    I finished A Place Called Here and as a result of it being so great I'm halfway through If You Could See Me Now.

    I love the way the blurb makes you think it's going to be about a girl meeting a guy, him turning her life around but then it's so much more than that

    Im gonna try Where Rainbows End next I think. I work at a library on a Saturday so I have easy access to a lot of them lol.

    I read it about 2 years ago i think it was when it came out (why she doesnt get much publicity, i don't know, cos she's a brilliant writer *my copy has a black cover with gold flowers i think it is, unlike the new hot pink one) and i have to say i liked it, but nothing for me could ever top PS, I love you. I wasnt as big a fan of if you could see me now, at first, but it's growing on me..

    I've read all her books but I think her first one, P.s. I love you, was the best. It was so sad but funny at the same time, and whenever I'm feeling down I reread it. I also liked If You Could See Me Now,which was really sweet. A Place Called Here isn't bad, but definately read her other books if you can. I can't wait for the film of P.S. I love you, but i heard it's got Hillary Swank playing Holly?!?

    Love Cecilia Ahern. Finished P.S. I love you, so once I finish Harry Potter will start another one of her books. Had me sitting there giggling on holiday with everyone around staring at me lol, but at other points had me feeling sad. Brill book though, definately recommend it.

    I think she's a great author. Took me a while to get into some of her books though. I especially loved 'A Place Called Here', and got into it so much I was lying in the bath for hours reading it.
