The next 100 pages were slowing down and getting draggy The next 219 pages went at a frustrating snails pace until FINALLY the last page had what the whole book was leading up to. This is definitely a case where I like the movie better than the book.
Don't get me wrong, I really adored this book and I definitely don't regret reading it. Probably because it's easier to suffer a couple of hours than 2 days of frustrating long reading, lol.
I had so much fun reading this book and I can't wait to watch the movie with Lily Collins and Sam Claflin (even though I hear it is pretty much nothing like the book).
You really get to dig deep into the main character's emotions and feelings this way and I really enjoyed it. I think this book is leaning towards a definite 4.5 starts, I absolutely loved and devoured it!I am extremely excited to get round to watching the film as I feel like it will work really well!
Find all of my reviews at: http://52bookminimum.blogspot.com/ 2.5 Stars Once again it appears Im the solo gal who didnt absolutely fall in love with this book. Even through that little mishap, Alex and Rosie managed to remain friends. Rather than having Rosie and Alex experience one bad marriage/failed relationship/whathaveyou each, Cecilia Ahern had them experience multiple failures and waste more than half their lives wondering what could have been . I mean seriously, everyone is familiar with the story: 1.Boy meets girl; 2.Boy and girl become friends; 3.Boy and girl realize they could ruin the friendship if they take it to the next level; 4.Boy and girl date/marry other people; 5.Boy and girls marriages/relationships fail; and 6.Boy and girl finally realize they were meant to be together and live happily ever after. I loved Alex and Rosie.
Meet Rosie and Alex, 2 best friends that share with us their funny and sad moments. It was such an interesting thing in reading the story using this instruments and I was very excited to understand how Cecelia managed to make the reader understand the plot. Rosie and Alex, 2 best friends since childhood, with a lot in common, who dream of a future together, as friends of course. Having spend the majority of their time together, they are used in sharing things and talking about anything. I loved this thing that Cecelia brought for the readers, because it was an unique book for me.
Just when you think youve got it all figured out, just when you finally begin to plan something, get excited about something, and feel like you know what direction youre heading in, the paths change, the signs change, the wind blows the other way, north is suddenly south, and east is west, and youre lost. there were times I was cracking up like a freakin' hyena... there were times I was swooning over Alex and Rosie.. Honestly though, I wouldn't have bothered picking this book up if I didn't see the freakin movie trailer. So here's the gist Rosie and Alex has been best friends ever since they could remember. They hade their fair share of happy, sad, and mostly embarassing moments at school, even arguments actually (Rosie got really upset when Alex didn't invite her to his birthday.. Alex's family had to move to the US being his dad got a good job offer there. So Alex and Rosie got separated, their only form of communications were mails, letters, and IM's. She had feelings for Alex for a long time, but was too scared to admit it. Rosie applied to Boston University and got accepted, while Alex got into Harvard. But life had other plans for them, Rosie got pregnant. His career is right on track. Would there still be a chance for Alex and Rosie when too much stuff have already happened? She's lucky though that she has a best friend like Alex, who despite being in another country, was still there for her. I like Rosie, because I experienced the same stuff she's experiencing... Like I said earlier, only difference was, she had an Alex, I don't. I wish I had Alex or Sam Caflin whichever... Rosie's been through a lot. When Alex got engaged. When Alex got married. So proud of Rosie. He was such a good friend to Rosie. Like Rosie, Alex really did mature as well. What else can I say about Alex? I really love Alex. I want a best friend like him. FINAL RAMBLINGS Alex and Rosie's story reminds me of the song "Realize" by Colbie Caillat. For those of you who wants a sweet love story about two best friends who lost each other but found their way back together again, then I definitely recommend this.
