The Gift, by Cecelia Ahern

The GiftThe Gift by Cecelia Ahern

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Any book that can make me cry this much has to be good. When I finished it I hugged my boyfriend close and wouldn't let him go. I think we all need to read a story like this once in a while to remind us to cherish each moment we have to spend with those we love. A great, quick read, perfect for capturing the spirit of Christmas!

  1. I felt like I spent most of this book trying to get into it. Usually I hate putting books down but had no problem putting this book down as I tried to get through it. I felt that the outside narration by the police officer really didn't add anything to the story and was not necessary.

  2. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Espana. I found the narrative with the police officer to be really confusing until I discussed it with my book group. I felt a lot of his story to be very ambiguous. I gave the story 5 stars because of the sentimental feelings it was able to arouse in me. Very few stories have such a strong effect on me.

    I stopped by your blog. All the best with it!
