Review: The Time Of My Life By: Cecelia Ahern

The Time of My LifeThe Time of My Life by Cecelia Ahern
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Life is requesting an appointment and will not be stood up. What if life would and could do just that? And what if life wasn't an abstract thing or being but an actual person?
I guess it depends on whether you are running from it or embracing it.
Lucy Silchester just shy of her birthday receives such a request, that soon becomes a demand. She will have to face life. Unfortunately for her, she has been trying to lie not just to others but herself and has found that she is a big knot of lies and denial.
Life has to follow her throughout her day, from work to home, to the dreaded dinner with her family. Despite their intial meeting filled with her anger and disdain - something begins to happen.
I love Cecelia Ahern's novels and find that there is a certain whimsy, a certain lesson, a way that she can make the reader get lost in the tale and find a piece of them in it. This is no exception- be prepared to laugh, cry, reflect because life wouldn't have it any other way. A definite must read.
