“P.S. I love you” tells the story of Holly, a thirty-year-old widower who lost her childhood sweet-heart and husband, Gerry. Like any other couples, they had their fights, but they were usually caused by little things such as: whose time it was to turn off the light before going to bed or who had forgotten to put another milk carton in the fridge. Since Holly was a walking disaster Gerry had the idea of creating The List. According to Gerry, Holly was too distracted and sensitive to ever be able to live without him, so all these things they fought about would have to be documented and organized in a list so that Holly never forgot to do some things and avoided doing others.
For a long time Holly and her closest friends thought that this List was just a private joke, however, when Gerry died, Holly soon found out that he was serious and had left her a List with envelopes that would gently guide her into her new life without him, each signed “P.S. I love you” and containing a very important message.
This is a book that shows the importance of friendship and love and reminds us to always say I love you to the ones that we truly care about because some day it will all be over and we won’t get a second chance. It also shows the power of family and the difficulties a person goes through when one of our dearest ones passes away.
I really liked this book because it is a very funny though sad story that makes us cry in some passages and laugh really heartily in others. It is very easy to read and well-written. If someone asked me, I would say that I truly recommend this book, especially to a female audience that like heart-warming novels since this book is about a love that never dies.
