Love, Rosie (Where Rainbows End)
About this deal
Katie (who is 12 at this instance) had brought along her best-friend Toby on the trip. The two remind Alex and Rosie of their childhood. Toby tries kissing Katie and she doesn't respond positively to it. Alex and Rosie calm down Katie and Alex tells her that if she doesn't respond to him correctly now, she will regret it for the rest of her life and keep looking for people who will just fail to be as good-enough for her. Alex reminds Rosie of her 18th birthday where the two actually kissed before she passed out. No había leído antes nada de Cecila Ahern y decidí empezar con este cuando ví que este libro va aser llevado al cine. Oh god. I really love Alex. I want a best friend like him. I want to have that person who wouldn't give up on me, someone who would always be there even in my ugliest day.
Rosie finds herself pregnant after a one night stand with Brian, and the way she had planned her life takes a sharp direction change. Rosie stays home to care for a newborn baby girl named, 'Katie' and Alex goes to Harvard and studies to be a doctor. Por quéeee carajos no se dijeron las cosas!!!! se pudieron haber ahorrado tantos cosas innesesarias, neta quería ahorcarlos a los dos, por no ser DIRECTOS y CLAROS en sus sentimientos TODO POR EL JODIDO MIEDO!!Te mereces a alguien que te amé con todo su corazón, Alguien que piense en ti constantemente, Alguien que pase cada minuto de cada día preguntándose,“Qué estás haciendo” “Dónde estás” “Con quién estás” O si estás bien. Necesitas a alguien que te ayude a Realizar tus sueños y alejarte de tus temores. Necesitas a alguien que te amé con respeto, Que ame cada parte de ti, pero sobretodo tus defectos. The crossed out messages that they really wanted to say but instead said something else, I thought was a really nice touch.
Mrs. Julie Casey: Also known as "Mrs. Big Nose Smelly Breath Casey" by Rosie and Alex. Towards the middle of the story Rosie, after quitting her job, goes to work at her old primary school as a receptionist and the two become friends. I’m writing you this letter because I know that if I say what I have to say to your face I will probably punch you.
Pero supongo que todo pasó como tenía que pasar, ¿no? Los dos tenían que vivir su vida, soportarla y darse cuenta que lo único que les faltaba era valor para expresar lo que sentían.
What else can I say about Alex? Well, he's a good dad, a good uncle, and a good husband. He tried. You'll see it throughout the book. You'll love him more and more as you read through the series of messages. Greg finds the letter and hides it from Rosie. When Rosie goes to work, she finds out that Greg has booked a bridal suite and assumes it is for their anniversary celebrations. However, she discovers Greg's meandering ways and that he has been cheating on her. She punches him and Greg is out of her and Katie's life.
Rosie Dunne: One of the main characters who lives in Dublin with her daughter Katie and has always dreamed of working in a hotel. The book follows her relationship with best friend Alex as distance and circumstances are forever testing their friendship. Rosie begins to question whether she was always meant to be more than friends with Alex and these feelings soon begin to take effect on their friendship. Cover: I've seen two of the covers - The move cover (Left) and the book covers, even the original title of 'Love, Rosie' which was 'Where Rainbows End'. A large majority of the time, I opt for the original book covers because the movie covers either ruin it or give faces to characters which I haven't met yet. I like to imagine these characters for myself, and what they might look like based on small descriptions here and there - it allows the world to expand all within my own head without having someone else force this image there. But, this time was an exception. I absolutely adore the movie cover for Love, Rosie. It reminds me a lot of the movie, ' Like Crazy' where it's a romantic setting just between the two main characters. That lens flare. That 'look-at-the-other-when-they-aren't-looking'. The cute little gestures (Like looking at a camera together). It was so cute, and the original books covers couldn't rival it at all. Pocas veces cerré un libro con la sensación que Love, Rosie me dejó en el pecho al hacerlo y por eso mismo no puedo insistir lo sufieciente en que le den una oportunidad. No se pierdan esta obra de arte.
