Review: Love, Rosie By: Cecelia Ahern

Love, RosieLove, Rosie by Cecelia Ahern
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Through letters, e-mails, and message chats 50 years go by with the ups and downs of life between two best friends, Rosie and Alex.
I could not put this book down - I felt like I was looking into the deep recesses and privacy of another human being, reading their letters to those closest to them. An interloper I was into a diary of a lifetime. How original for Ms. Ahern to use the style of writing she has, although in the beginning I strained through a couple pages to get into the style alone. Then I jumped in.
A quick read that takes you into the complications of maintaining and keeping a friendship, the blows life gives and the amazing joys, the times missed and the perfect timing needed. Rosie and Alex's story comes alive and they are very much "human", I guess this is why as I put the book down I found myself writing my own family and friends.
