I read this book having already watched the film and unfortunately I'm unable to make the comparisons that other readers have done and say whether the book or the film is better. Both are actually so different from either that it is difficult to compare them because many events and chapters have changed between the book and the film. Usually when this happens, people (myself included) often prefer the book. However, in this case, the added scenes in the film and the film itself is fantastic, as is the book and I cannot truly say which I prefer. BOTH deserve to be bought and read/watched. Anyway back to the book.
Holly has lost her one true love and husband Gerry to a brain tumour and is now lost in her life. With no job, no children and no future to speak of, Holly feels as though she is in a rut that is proving impossible to dig herself out of - not that she particularly wants to. This book portrays the journey Holly takes to becoming peaceful once again and getting her life back on track, littered with tear-jerking chapters and side-ripping hilarity.
Definitely reccomend to buy.
