Celia Ahern's 10th book.

This was my first attempt with a Cecilia Ahern novel. I'd seen the film of one of her earlier books and didn't really like that.

I have to say that if this is made into a film I'd certainly go to see it.

It's nicely paced and the characters are realistic.

You will have read the plot outline. I had no issues with this. Some people do... (HMMMMNN it's a fiction book.)

Overall a pleasant, and very readable book.

Think I was spoilt with 'PS I Love You' and pretty hard to top that one.

I liked this but did not love it, seemed as though there was something lacking in it. Could be the fact that when two people were having a conversation complete strangers gave their two pennies worth. I know it is only a story but seemed just a little way over the top. If it were based in New York yes could understand more so.

Not going to give any spoilers away as a lot has already been said by previous reviewers and the blurb anymore and the story would be spoilt for sure.

The characters I liked and the plot a good idea but just did not hit the spot for me sadly. Could also be the fact that after reading PS you get sort of spoilt and expect more if not better.

Nice cover and design though.

How To Fall In Love is an amazing novel. Cecelia Ahern just seems to get it right every single time, there's never a misstep in her writing, she always seems to be on point and How To Fall In Love is no different. The plot is just amazing, and it's such a simple premise: After talking a man, Adam, down from committing suicide, Christine tells him that she can change his life, that she'll teach him how to love life before his next birthday, and he reveals that it's in two weeks. So Christine has two weeks to make Adam fall back in love with living, otherwise he gets to take his life, successfully this time. Sure it may sound a bit morbid and you may wonder just WHY Christine is getting involved with someone who may or may not be unbalanced, but actually, that didn't worry me at all. I didn't care that Adam was thisclose to suicide, in fact I embraced it because it's what made the novel. Can you imagine if hypothetically somebody did that for every single potential suicide? It would be a pretty amazing thing, just saying.

How To Fall In Love is mostly a book about hope. It's about having the hope that even at your lowest moments, it can all come good again and that suicide isn't the answer. Adam and Christine's story isn't just a tale about Christine helping Adam, of course it isn't, because Christine's life isn't perfect - she's just left her husband, who's having a difficult time getting over it, her family life isn't exactly perfect, and she's living in a tatty apartment in the same building where she works. It's a story of two people helping each other and it is fabulous. I was so touched by Christine's ability to want to help, I loved how Adam was receptive enough to allow Christine to try and help him, and I loved the two as characters.

Christine is the star of this book and after talking a man, Adam, down from committing suicide, she tells him that she can change his life before his next birthday. He then reveals that it's in two weeks. I have to be honest and say the synopsis sounds a little bit maudlin, but the story is not.

Christine although having agreed to help Adam is not perfect and she has her own issues to deal with, but the characters are extremely likeable and the story very easy to read.

Definately an author I will be looking to read again!

How to Fall in Love is Cecelia Ahern’s most superb love story since P.S. I Love You.
Christine is obsessed with self-help books and uses them to fix all of her problems, as well as everyone else’s. She decides to leave Barry, her husband after she realises how unhappy she is.

Christine see’s Adam on Ha’penny Bridge, Dublin about to jump. Christine, in a moment of panic makes a pact with him: give her two weeks (his 35th birthday) to help him fall back in love with life. She knows if she fails, he will be back on that bridge.

Adam is desperate, moody but loveable. Maria, his girlfriend has just slept with Sean his best friend. His father is making him take over the family company, which he doesn’t want and he recently lost his job with the Coast Guard.

Christine remains with Adam throughout the fortnight. They grow close, but will they help one another fall back in love with life? The story, told in Christine’s first-person perspective is sad, humorous and joyous.

How to Fall in Love is anything but predictable; it has twists and turns right up to the very end. It has several sub-plots that complement the main storyline. The story shows the dark and light sides of life; from depression and suicide to fun and happiness.

The characters are all loveable, even the unlikeable one. They were well developed and had real depth.

How to Fall in Love is romance at its very best. Its a one-of-a-kind story, which was an addictive page turner. I can’t heap enough praise on Cecelia Ahern for this fantastic tale.
