Publisher's Summary

The basis for the motion picture starring Lily Collins and Sam Claflin!

What happens when two people who are meant to be together can't seem to get it right?

Rosie and Alex are destined for each other, and everyone seems to know it but them. Best friends since childhood, they are separated as teenagers when Alex and his family relocate from Dublin to Boston.

Like two ships always passing in the night, Rosie and Alex stay friends, and though years pass, the two remain firmly attached via emails and letters. Heartbroken, they learn to live without each other. But destiny is a funny thing, and in this novel of several missed opportunities, Rosie and Alex learn that fate isn't quite done with them yet.

Love this movie!

I love this movie, so I had to read the book. Found it on Audible. I didn’t like the way they announced who was speaking. They should had used different peoples voices. I found it a little hard to follow.

A surprisingly addictive story

The format of this book is unusual with the entirety of the story told through the character's written communications (email, instant message, text, and chat room) which I initially thought would be distracting and difficult to follow but I couldn't have been more wrong. I was pulled completely into the lives of the characters and could not pull myself away. I'm so sad it's over.

I have enjoyed this book in audio and paperback.

I read this book once. It was loaned to me by one of my sister's friends. I loved it so much that I didn't want to give it back and if I had money at that time I would have bought it from the girl. However she loved the story as much as I so was reluctant to sell it.

When I started audio, I remembered the book and I searched google, amazon and audible to see if it was available. I couldn't find it and I was disappointed. Then I saw that the title was changed and I was even more ecstatic that it was available in audio. I do not mind the email structure of book, I found it refreshing because I have never read a book like that. It made it unique now I have it in audio so I can listen to it whenever I want to. I just goes to show that we can't run from fate and what is meant be will be. Once you set your goals stick to it have fate and your dreams will come through with hiccups and pitfalls along the way.

Quality is a word that comes to mind

The book is all correspondence. Which takes getting use too. I really like it.
Long but in a good way.

Goes on waaaay too long - and the ending doesn't deliver.

I liked this story, but it just went on and on and literally spans FIVE decades for two characters. I found it frustrating bc you knew they'd end up together but it just took SO BLOODY LONG. Like this book could've easily been half as long. The correspondence only storytelling format grew tiresome. Also *spoiler alert* after sitting thru decades of these people's lives and emails, they only finally get together on the last page and Don't. Even. Kiss. Wtfffff?

Long and Predictable

Not a fan of the genre, so let the haters hate. Bought this for my daughter and in a period between good books, gave it a listen, too. Rosie and best friend fall in love at different points in time, not quite syncing up as they travel through life choices. The book was infinitely long and I sped it up to finish. Have a thing about finishing what I start, no matter how bad. It wasn't terrible, but there was nothing new or spectacular. Loved the narrator, but do not recommend the book.

The narrator is adding and removing lines?

As i’m reading this (well the narrator) she is not reading it as the book is. I’m not sure if there is a different copy of the book? I have the original before it became a movie, and after. Both are inaccurate to what she is saying. It’s quite aggravating
