Even with the changes and added scenes, I adored it and savored every moment of rereading it. If you have read this book under its earlier title, the changes were very flawlessly done and I would recommend reading it again. If you haven't had a chance to read it yet, do yourself a favor and do it. Especially if you love the movie, "You've Got Mail."
I absolutely loved the letters and emails back and forth between these two. It's such a sweet friendship to love story that just pulls on the heartstrings. It's one of those stories that leaves me with such a big smile on my face while reading it and afterwards any time I think about it. I'm grinning now thinking about all the different scenes. *happy sigh*
I can't help but think about the song "Ice Cream" from the musical, "She Loves Me." So cute. Go watch it if you're wondering what I'm talking about. And read the book! ;-)
I loved the characters! Isabel and Simon, or Amelie and Elliott. ;-) Ahhhh...*sigh*. How can you not like a story of two characters writing sweet letters back and forth and developing a great friendship, especially when those two characters don't know anything too personal about the other, like real names and jobs and job locations. Then to have those two characters meet and one figures it out while the other doesn't until almost the end. The poor character who knows is struggling because to tell the other when their real life relationship is very rocky would make the letter writing amazing friendship on the brink of shambles. What to do, what to do? Well the only thing you can do...wage a war of becoming their best friend and letting them see the person you truly are, the person who wrote the great letters of friendship.
I loved, loved, loved the twist that Lucinda Whitney put on this idea. It was sweet and witty, emotional and frustrating with several twists within it all. The setting was great, Lisbon, Portugal. The characters were easy to relate to and to cheer for. The book was hard to set down when life called but was very easy to pick back up when free time came. I really am wanting to go watch those movies and musical again right now, and even reread this cute book. One of my favorites for sure!
The sweet romance was so well done and the epilogue was very swoony. It did such a great job portraying Simon and Isabel's love story.
Content: Clean. Sweet kisses and nothing further.
'AMELIE' and 'ELLIOT' have been pen pals since middle school. For 15 years the two have continued intermittently to correspond using fictitious names and exchanging no personal information. But both have noticed the emotional level of their communications have recently taken on a more personal note.
SIMON ACKERLEY has just taken a temporary consulting job in Lisbon and his very first day he and his bike collide with a beautiful young lady that he is instantly drawn to, especially when he realizes he has found his childhood pen-pal so quickly. Before Simon can disclose his identity he will have to work extra hard to convince Isabel he isn't there for her job, especially when Simon has more than one secret he is keeping.
ISABEL ANTUNES, director of the English Academy in Lisbon, is barely recovering from a bike mishap when the director of the academy informs her he has hired a consultant, a man she is sure is there after her job. The more time the two spend working together and running into each other around town doesn't do much to alleviate her concerns. Thankfully, Isabel has her pen-pal Elliot to vent to and he always seems to know just the right thing to say.
As their friendship grows Simon begins to drop small clues as to his identity in the hopes that Isabel will see him as the man she has spent years developing a relationship with, and Isabel continues to be confused in her feelings for her co-worker when her heart truly belongs to Elliot.
This is such a beautiful sweet romance story. It was a fairly quick read. I highly recommend it!
