Review: How To Fall In Love By: Cecelia Ahern

How to Fall in LoveHow to Fall in Love by Cecelia Ahern
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Christine Rose found herself talking Adam Basil off a bridge and making a promise to show him a life worth living by his 35th birthday – 2 weeks away. Christine knows she can’t fail this, even though she has just left her husband, she already had witnessed an attempted suicide the night before, and everything seems quite messy, Adam is her priority.
The human frailty of each character brings a depth of understanding and compassion. There is the wonderful humor that only Ahern delivers in her wonderful style, excellent secondary characters and plot development. The optimism Christine attempts to bring into Adam’s life as the dark cloud hovers over hers, brings a certain enlightenment to the reader of the wonders of life and creating those moments to treasure and value.
I love Ms. Ahern’s books. Within the pages I know I will be transported into a story that will not only bring tears, laughter, but also bring a sense of hope. Yes, her books can be categorized as ‘chick lit’ but there is a deeper depth, a story of growth, of hope, of the impossible becoming – and I don’t know about you, but my soul needs stories like these.
