“Where Rainbows End is marketed in the US as ‘Love, Rosie’.”



I’ve been reading several books at once lately, and with two heavy books on the go I fancied something light and airy. So last week I picked up Cecilia Ahern’s Where Rainbows End, a little love story with a very clever prose.

The prose itself is really unusual, the entire book is a transcript of written conversations, and it all starts with notes passed in the classroom between two five year olds . . .

It’s a pretty story, very cute and it’s all tied up with a bow at the end as this genre of novel often is. It’s the sort of book practically anyone could read, with easy language and a light tone. I suspect this would be popular with young adults, although it’s definitely marketed at the twenty-something female.

The prose lends itself to modern life, if you know someone who reads lots on the Internet, likes snippets from Facebook and blogs but never reads a book, thrust this upon them, I think they might like it!

I’m quite a fan of Cecilia Ahern, and if the idea of fairytales for grown ups appeals to you, you might like her stuff too. It’s probably not going to change your life, but it’ll make you smile as you read.
