  1. What did I think WHAT DID I THINK Well, if I told you that I sat on the bed and cried exactly like this for about five to ten minutes after I d closed the book, does that put it in perspective for you Front Cover.I really, really liked the front cover for If You Could See Me Now , it was simple, natural, and actually depicts a huge part in the book When I first saw it I thought it was lovely anyway because I love the thought of making a wish with dandelions and then blowing them to watch your wi [...]

  2. I thought I d make it simple and just list a few facts about If You Could See Me Now 1 It is not a typical romance novel.2 It is not to everyone s taste.3 It s written for people with imagination.4 It has made me laugh and cry in the most unexpected way.5 It s sprinkled with magic.6 It taught me that sometimes you just need to let go and simply enjoy.7 It is an indescribably touching story.8 It made me want to have Ivan as best friend, if only for few days.

  3. I read Ahern s first book, P.S I Love You, and despite the only reason she probably got it published is because she s the Irish PM s daughter, it was a cute book with a sweet premise I didn t like this book as much Now I have no problem with stretching my imagination, but at least the reasons for what s happening is usually explained I m probably going to spoil this book, but I m not going to bother with spoiler tags because the book isn t even worth reading anyway However, if you do want to rea [...]

  4. This was my first Cecelia Ahern read and I sincerely hope it won t be my last because it was just so amazing The concept of the novel was so beautiful and innocent.When I read the blurb, I had no idea there was a sense of magic about it I just thought it was a normal chic lit book that intrigued me, yet again Oh, how wrong I was.Ahern took me on a journey whereby I witnessed things I hadn t thought about since childhood I was thrilled by the happiness, sucking me in wholeheartedly but I was also [...]

  5. I began reading this book in the plane and thought that I would finish it before the plane landed because the previous Cecelia Ahern s book Where rainbows end was read by me really quickly But I was mistaken, the vacation ended and I still hadn t finished the book, it wasn t light and easy reading for me, I had to try my best to make me read it To be honest, I didn t enjoy at least the first half of the book because I hated Saoirse and her way of life Sometimes people need to have a rest from ev [...]

  6. This is a very hard book to review because whilst I did have some misgivings about parts of it, on the whole I really enjoyed reading this magical fairy tale of a story It is the story of Elizabeth and her imaginary friend Ivan, whose relationship develops over the course of the book to a point where someone has to say stop, this will not work The story itself is really lovely although there were times I wanted to shake Elizabeth It was as if she could not see what was, or was not staring her in [...]

  7. This book sat on my bookshelf for quite a whilewaiting for me to be ready to read it And when it was time was time I flew through the book unable to sit it aside The story is so sweetly touching It s playful and lighthearted yet full of deep emotion and caring I couldn t wait to finish the book to pass it along to a friend This is a story about coming into your own and letting go of the deep seeded beliefs and fears that get in your way You finish it and it s like you re sitting inside a cloud o [...]

  8. Ugh I really struggled with reading this book It took me so much longer than it should have just because I could not get into it I guess I am just too practical to enjoy this one I have no problem with a book being a little unrealistic, for the sake of a good love story But in this case, I had a problem with a woman falling in love with an imaginary friend who is in fact real, but not really Arrgg I could not take it I could not get into it I felt like I was reading a childrens book I love Cecel [...]

  9. Ah, kindness It s the thing we crave the most, and all too often it doesn t show up This lovely book blazes with it This is a breezy romantic comedy fantasy, but what you might not expect is the emotional punch It will floor you.Elizabeth Egan lives in a small Irish town and takes care of her nephew Luke She s an interior designer and her life seems perfectly organized, but hectic Into their lives comes Ivan, a sort of professional imaginary best friend They usually show up to help kids, but it [...]

  11. If you could see me now This is the second book I read by Cecelia Ahern, a long time ago, the first one was P.S I love you, before the movie came out I read a review about it, and was set off to see what is was about And did I found something incredible indeed Cecelia has captivated me, in all her books But I must say it s If You Could See Me Now the one that has such an special place in my heart, words are just not enough to explain See from the very first moment, I felt a connection to Elizabe [...]

  12. I decided to pick up this book for a couple of reasons One, P.S I Love You was made into a movie and I wanted to see what kind of writer it was And two, the Prime Minister s daughter wrote a book at 21 That s gotta be worth looking into, right Well, I got to page 60, and I couldn t go on She tends to drone on about certain things like how Elizabeth s mother left the family and how Elizabeth is very neat and precise and particular, and I really don t need to know about all the types of coffees in [...]

  13. There are some books which makes you happy just like that without any genuine reason behind it, this was one of those for me I really like this imaginary world of happiness which Cecelia Ahern created and yes it was indeed a modern fairy tale with a practical ending which was actually the best part Whenever I used to open this book it only took me to another world, a world which I was glad to be a part of.

  15. 5 stars GOD FUCKING DAMMNIT SOMEONE STOP THE PAIN I CANT WHY WHAT HAVE I DONE TO DESERVE THIS.This book is the book that taught me precisely the feeling of wanting to throw it at a wall across the room thankfully I barely refrained No but seriously, why like um I m not writing a freaking review for this, I feel lightheaded from all that crying and all I want to do is throw this book at a wall, this book has ruined me like I went into the book thinking it d be some cutesy sweet thing about how a [...]

  16. I wasn t sure what to expect, but at the library, I found this on the shelf and decided to give it a chance I really, really liked it I usually don t just pick up a book from the shelf I like them to be recommended or on a special table, but I m glad I did.Elizabeth, an independent, fierce, rigid person, who is raising her carefree sister s six year old son, is on the pathway to a very lonely and loveless existence until she meets Ivan Ivan turns out not to be who she thought he was, but that s [...]

  17. This book is different than most of the books i have read , it has quite an imagination , the element of surprise , the theme of hope I would recommend this book for those who are searching for hope , for new beginning , cause it makes you see the world with a very different perspective.The love is so pure selfless , the innocence would feel your eyes , the part where you know its going to be that way , you still want to believe in a miracle ,there is a very thin line between the reality fiction [...]

  18. Note this review is written in both languages, Arabic and English .3 This is the best book I have ever read said May, my friend Is it really that good I asked myself The sparkle in her eyes and the warmth in her voice while describing the novel were similar to those of a mother describing her beloved small little baby.These passionate expressions answered my question immediately She succeeded in letting me stop reading translated non Arabic novels and start to read [...]

  19. I really liked it The book welcomed me into the agency of imaginary friends P And I thought if this group really existed, I would like to have an imaginary friend as a companion to right my wrongs, to serve as a company when life gets too silent, to poke and tell me to enjoy life, or to let me see how constant change really is Believe me, I could relate myself to Lizzie in so many ways I wondered if I ever had an imaginary friend when I was young I d better ask my mom about this Lizzie was the q [...]

  20. I ll be honestI set out to go spoiler free but I failed, there s too much I want to mope about.oo Spoilers ahead I loved this story, I did deduct a star because I didn t get my happy ending sometimes I need to read a book and have the most impossible love story work out gives me hope, but instead I got dashed dreams and a tear stained bookElizabeth Egan has a tragic story most of us dobut hers is quite heartwrenchingly unfair having been abandoned by her mother at age 12, left to live with her s [...]

  21. By Cecelia Ahern Grade A There are no words to express how touching this story is.I ve read two books by Cecilia Ahern P.S I Love You and this Both of them have touched my heart in a way rarely any book has.If You Could See Me Now is a book which would make even the cynic of cynics sob like a baby.Let me give you some background.If You Could See Me Now is a gentle tale a love story with a twist.Elizabeth is a very uptight and no nonsense lady who has been stuck with her sister s six year old son [...]

  22. I was drawn to this book since the very begging It s so different from what I usually read and the story is written so beautifully All the characters are so endearing , especially Ivan He is an unforgettable character and easy to fall in love with The changes he brought in Elizabeth were remarkable I find it amazing how just one person can change lives even after years of restraint and rigid discipline Sometimes love is right there, it s just that people can see it or not This book was a sweet s [...]

  23. The you try to simplify things the you complicate them You create rules, build walls, push people away, lie to yourself and ignore true feelings That is not simplifying things Cecelia Ahern, If You Could See Me Now Some people aren t into the whimsical They like to stay grounded in reality and they like to know that what they re reading is concrete and is a variance on what their own life is like or maybe someone they d wish their life was like or maybe glad that it s not like what they re rea [...]

  24. I liked this book It wasn t entirely what I had expected, but the surprise was a pleasant one I want to meet someone as clear sighted and imaginative as Ivan His playful, adventurous, carefree approach in life matches mine, and the world would be a much better place if there were people like him in it The message this book sends is wonderful The world can be a truly magical place if we treat our time in it as such Memorable, important, worthwhile We worry too much about the wrong things About m [...]
