Loved it!! I’m glad I read it before watching the movie. The movie is far to be as good as the book. Great book, specially if you can relate to some parts of the story.

This was really hard to rate, because overall I really liked it! It was humorous and hit with all of the feels. BUT it was 150 pages too long. I definitely cared a bit less what happened at the end, vs. if it would have ended hundreds of pages before.

Enjoyed it immensely! Loved that it was written in a new way, by emails, letters, and texts. I was very frustrated throughout the whole book, but it was funny, sad, and engaging! This book has made me realize that life goes by in a flash, and one should always go with what their heart desires, no matter the situation! I didn't ball my eyes out because I knew what was going to happen (Come on, it was bound to happen, even if it was in a hundred years), but I was thrilled with it all! My parents probably thought I was crazy, I kept screaming at the book in frustration (That's a good sign when the book is good). Anyways, Cecilia sure NOS how to write her books!

I really enjoyed this book. It was different from a writing perspective in that it all was written in emails, texts and letters. It's was cute quirky and frustrating at times that it made it hard to put down. Definitely would recommend. Can't wait to see how the movie does.

Literally bawling my eyes out right now!! One of the BEST love stories I have ever came across. This book is an romantic book with comedy and sadness.

This is one of the best books I have read. I LOVE the way that this story is written and how it continues in the same way, through letters, emails and notes. I laughed and cried and it is worth a read.

Vapid and badly written.

Beautiful and poignant, this story is told in the form of letters between 2 friends that spans 50 years. Love it!
