Customer Reviews

It is uniquely written as correspondence between the characters, very easy to follow.
T. Tracy
You can't wait to see how it ends but at the same time you are sad you have to stop reading the book.
Brittney
The book is written as a series of letters, notes, and e-mails and reads very quickly.

Just in case you were looking for a new Cecelia Ahern book, please don't make the same mistake I made. I think this is a Europen release of "Rosie Dunne". And I also understand that it's also going by the name "Love, Rosie" ......... but it's still one of my most favorite books ever! I love this author and this book rocks by any name. I give it 10 starz!

I usually LOVE cecelia Ahern books.. However I hated everything about this book. It had no story to it, it was like reading through someone's emails.. It was boring the whole time,I couldn't relate to Rosie at ALL because of her stupid and unrealistic choices, and when the book FINALLY ended.. it was nothing special at all. You could see it coming from page one. The ending leaves the reader dissapointed with nothing but a feeling of time wasted. I only rated this book with a one star because I finished it hoping it'd get better, it definitely did not!!

Even though all cecelia's books are my favorite, my heart probably went out to this book the most. Its a great book, no doubt and she took the liberty of penning the story in such a way that it is portrayed in letters, emails, etc.

I felt really sad throughout, despite the humor and all. It was relief, to disappointment, to humor, and back to disappointment again. So much hints, so many second chances and all thrown away. This book remain the most realistic to our lives, in my opinion.

A story about two best friends who grew up together, not realising that they were meant for each other all because of a chance that was missed and words left unspoken. They see each other through jobs, marriage, heartbreaks, and alot more. Until when they're finally at their retiring age, do they realise that they do love one another more than anything else in the world.

It saddens me when I comtemplate about the time wasted, and all the words that were dragged on.

'Where Rainbows End' is TRULY an endearing tale.

If you're the emotional sort, read it and you won't be disappointed.

First off Rosie Dunne is not a likeable character. For the life of me I cant understand why Alex is in love with her. He is a successful doctor and all she does is whine and she is soooooo depressed all the time. And every time they start to tell each other how they feel about each other something stands in the way. And that goes on chapter after chapter. If you like drawn out depressing books this is the book for you. However if you dont I would not recommend reading this book.

I bought this book at the Edinburgh Airport and started to read it on the planeride back home. I couldn't put it down. Absolutely fantastic and original read, comprised of letters, emails, IMs, all the ways of communicating without being face-to-face.

I don't think I've ever laughed so much while reading a book, or felt so much for two characters and how separated their love is. You watch as Rosie and Alex grow up, and meet new people and have children and become different things, the entire book leading up to an ending you, as the reader can predict, but in a nice way. It's really heart-warming and excellent, although this kind of love is frustrating because you just want them to get together already! :) A very excellent read, especially when you want some entertainment on a very long, very boring planeride.

I have read a couple of her other books which were very good. I was very frustrated and pushed myself through about 25-30 pages. While I was already interested in the characters, I did not like the "Letter" format. I have forced myself through a couple of other books that were in "Email" format. I just don't understand why an author would do this. It is very slow and annoying. I really wish This book was available in the common format. I really enjoyed her other books and feel disappointed that I couldn't force myself to finish this one. My loss aparently because this book did get some good ratings.....

A series of emails, letters, and other correspondences make up the narrative of this book. Its not an entirely novel idea (no pun intended) but one that works even in this case. However, I think the book could have been shortened quite a bit (the whole divorced chat room scenario seemed irrelevant to the overall plot). About 3/4ths through it, I found myself skipping large chunks just to get to the end.

Rosie and Alex seemed destined to make mistake after mistake when it comes to love and life -- though it bothered me that Alex is considerably more financially successful.

When I did finally finish it, I felt a bit melancholy. I think the ending was supposed to be happy and make people believe in the power of love. But the proceeding chapters were so full of sadness, bad choices and even death that it left me feeling letdown.

Overall, its a meandering and depressing love story.
