With the help of the letters.

October 08, 2009

It's been 3 days since I started reading PS I Love You.

Set in Ireland, Holly Kennedy is beautiful, smart and married to the love of her life - a passionate, funny and impetuous Irishman named Gerry. So when Gerry's life is taken by an illness, it takes the life out of Holly. The only one who can help her is the person who is no longer there. Nobody knows Holly better than Gerry, so it's a good thing he planned ahead. Before he died, Gerry wrote Holly a series of 10 letters that will guide her, not only through her grief but in rediscovering herself. The messages are Gerry's way of informing Holly life goes on. The messages include various tasks and treats Gerry has left for Holly. This is his way of letting her know he will always be there for her. Each letter sends her on a new adventure and each signs off in the same way: "P.S. I Love You." Holly's mother and best friends, Sharon and Denise, begin to worry that Gerry's letters are keeping Holly tied to the past, but, in fact, each letter is pushing her further into a new future. With Gerry's words as her guide, Holly embarks on a journey of rediscovery in a story about marriage, friendship and how a love so strong can turn the finality of death into new beginning for life.

Note that bolded 'Ten Letters'. They put the title as PS I Love You because every letter Gerry had wrote to Holly ends up with.. PS, I love you.

With the help of the letters, I should say, and the love she get from family and close friends around her, she found her way step by step towards a new life.

My opinion about this book so far : Touching, very witty, very sweet, very saaaaadd. I can't believe I cried over things happened to Holly, and I giggled over the characters' witty remarks as I'd never do it before. And oh well, tak hairanlah sebab selama ni baca novel Ramlee Awang Murshid (- -")

You know, his novel. Yang overdose kadang-kadang tapi nakkk juga baca. Hahaha.

Back to PS, I Love You. The tenth letter (the last one) for Holly from the late Gerry is on page 436 (out of 470 pages : yes, dah nak habis dah T___T), written :

Don't be afraid to fall in love again. Open your heart and follow where it leads you.. and remember, shoot for the moon..

Ps, I will always love you...
Saya berhenti setakat itu tadi sebab semata-mata nak buat entri ni wth. I wonder why. Haha. Okey bye.

Ps, Subuh tadi nak jog tapi 6.30 tu tiba-tiba hujan. Tak jadi pergi unless saya sanggup nak jog sambil gigih bawa payung wth. Petang ni pula. Jom!
Pss, I love you too, my silent readers.
