Cecelia Ahern is a very clever, creative writer I really admire her work It s pretty awesome When you look at her covers, you don t expect much At least that s how it was with me You expect just another romantic comedy with all the gooey, cheesy, lovey dovey romantic parts Trust me, that is FAR from the case Her books are wonderful They deal with serious issues and serious problems Real life, every day shit She also throws in a little bit of magic and intrigue Her books have this creepy, eerie effect that I love And most importantly they are not stupidly and hopelessly romantic in any way Insert cheers and applause here About this novel The ending was very sad It s a moralistic kind of novel, and I liked that about it I especially loved the final paragraph It was very. Shaking I didn t really hate Lou, like I thought I would when I heard about the book and all I actually pitied him He lost track of his life and was living for nothing. He didn t experience true joy or happiness and lived for his work He hurt himself and the people around him on a daily basis It was really unfortunate But, he got a second chance He got the gift of time He got a chance to make things right before he was gone for good And I think everyone would want that But, unfortunately we can t really have that most of the time And the point of this book, I think, is to rattle us and make us aware of that That time is slipping away, and that we won t get a second chance to make it rig
I actually received this book as a gift last Xmas, but, it isn t the sort of book that I d go and purchase myself, so I suppose I ve been putting it off I have seen Cecelia Ahern s works in the bookshops, but never, until now, read one of her works I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it It certainly wasn t amazing or anything, but it is evident that Ahern is a wonderfully creative writer, and instead of some cheesy romance like I was expecting, there were some real life issues in her story, which can cause one to stop and think I loathed Lou, the main character throughout most of the book I thought he was a pretentious bastard, quite frankly It was rather evident from the beginning that Lou only considered his own happiness important But as the book reads on Lou is taught some valuable lessons, a
The Gift Cecelia Ahern Admittedly, I, like so many others before me, seem to associate Cecelia Ahern with lovely, girly books, especially with the gorgeous covers her books always have This is far from the case Her books are incredibly touching, the writing is clever and this book in particular is a fabulous example of how her books can be moralistic with a magical touch.The Gift centres on the story of Lou Suffern, as told through the eyes of someone else Lou is your stereotypical over working business man he constantly needs to be in two places at once, strives to always be bigger and better, and relieves himself with his womanising ways As a result, his family take a backseat and suffer, all the while standing by him waiting for things to change And things may just change once Lou meets Gabe, the mysterious homeless man who sits outside his office building One thing of great importance can affect a small number of people Equally so, a thing of little importance can affect a multitude Either way, a happening big or small can affect an entire string of people Ahern is a wonderfully gifted writer with a writing style that is easy and enjoyable to follow through her magical tales I found myself submerged in her st
Cecelia Ahern s The Gift is a lovely addition to holiday fiction It leaves readers with a beautiful message about how precious and impactful the gift of time is Not just time on this earth, but the time you purposefully set aside for those who give your life quality and purpose Nurture those relationships before you lose them The Gift is worth the r

First of all, I have to say I am not a native english speaker so, please, I prefer to not be attacked, if I made any mistakes Instead of do that, it would be nice if you corrected me, thank you

Time is precious than gold, precious than diamonds, precious than oil or any valuable treasures It is time that we do not have enough of it is time that causes the war within our hearts, and so we must spend it wisely

Here we go again with another Cecelia Ahern book I realized I ve missed reading her books until I read this one I won t ever stop saying Cecelia Ahern is a brilliant author and, unfortunately, she is so much underrated, as she doesn t deserve I picked this book up mostly because it was by Cecelia Ahern, I admit that The thing with her books it s that you become addicted to her writing style and always want to read Basically, Cecelia Ahern s books are my drug, guys I guess everyone has their obsessions and here s mine.

Apart from this emberassing confession of mine, I d like to talk about the plot This is a Christmas set book, that talks about Lou, a man so busy with work that he s arrived to ignore and put aside his family, along with his marriage and his own children One day he meets an homeless and, finds himself piting for him, he gives this hom
After reading Cecelia Ahern s novels Book of Tomorrow and P.S I Love You , I was looking forward to reading another Her books are so easy to read and leave you feeling really uplifted and The Gift definitely does that.I was a little dubious about reading a Christmas novel in July but towards the end I really got into the festive spirit An utterly fantastic book that gives out a fabulous message about the gift of time which really made me think as I turned each page The descriptive writing about the festive season made me feel like it was Christmas and I have to admit, I felt a little sad to peel back my curtain and see the sunshine outside I am very busy during the day but once I started reading I couldn t put it down.I was putting off chores to read just one chapter It keeps you engrossed from
