Twenty-three year old Ahern, whose debut novel, PS, I Love You, was a modest hit with critics and readers alike, does not deviate much from the witty yet sentimental style she seems to naturally posses. Rosie Dunne is written through a series of notes, letters, IMs, e-mails, and text messages between the two protagonists and their various friends and family members. While this style is engaging at first, readers may eventually long for more substantial dialogue and fewer choppy exchanges. In fact, about halfway into the story, some may even feel the urge to skip ahead to what is almost an inevitable conclusion. However, the addition of entertaining secondary characters (such as Rosie's best friend Ruby and her overweight, yet oddly talented, salsa-dancing son) help keep the momentum going through one-to-many near misses between Rosie and Alex.
Overall, Rosie Dunne is a touching look at what happens when "the one" always seems to be just a tad bit out of reach. Still, one can't help wondering if this novel may have been better suited to a short but sweet episode of a half-hour sitcom. --Gisele Toueg --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
I was very disappointed that the book was in this format.
The book is a quick read, and it's so good you're sad when it ends....it's a great, typical Cecelia Ahern book..if you liked "P.S. I LOVE YOU" you will LOVE this one!
I was sad by both the poignancy of the story and because I would miss reading about these wonderful characters.
This story was absolute pleasure and pure torture to read. I am a sucker for love stories, and the torture of Rosie and Alex missing each other over and over...but it was worth it.Published 4 days ago by Lexi
I LOVED PS I Love you, but really hated this book. This is not a book, but rather a series of notes and emails. Because of this, I could not get attached to the characters. Read morePublished 6 days ago by Amazon Customer
