#50: The Book of Tomorrow Cecelia Ahern

Born into the lap of luxury and comfortable in the here and now, spoiled, tempestuous Tamara Goodwin has never had to look to the future—until the abrupt death of her father leaves her and her mother a mountain of debt and forces them to move in with Tamara's peculiar aunt and uncle in a tiny countryside village.
Tamara is lonely and bored, with a traveling library as her only diversion. There she finds a large leather-bound book with a gold clasp and padlock, but no author name or title. Intrigued, she pries open the lock, and what she finds inside takes her breath away.
Tamara sees entries written in her own handwriting, and dated for the following day. When the next day unfolds exactly as recorded, Tamara realizes she may have found a solution to her problems. But in her quest to find answers, Tamara soon learns that some pages are better left unturned and that, try as she may, she mustn't interfere with fate.

MY OPINION:
 For the first half of this story, I often wondered where it was going to go. Then little things starting happening. The little things that build up the plot and pace of the story, and before I knew it, I was rapt. 
This book is emotional rollercoaster that takes you on one helluva ride.  Don't worry though, it has what I call a "Disney ending". Everything works out fine.
A lot of people would enjoy this book. I find it reminiscent of some of V.C. Andrews stories. 


3/5


RECOMMEND: Yes.

  1. I didn't love this one either. I still say that "P.S. I Love You" and "Love, Rosie" are her best books to date. It's almost like she ran out of material and had to start inventing bizarre plots.

  2. I had mixed feelings about this one. Parts of it I enjoyed, and yet - some of Tamara's choices/actions kinda rubbed me the wrong way. Plus, eventually I had a pretty good idea where things were going. It was an enjoyable read, though, and I'll have to check out some of the author's other works :)

  3. Hmmm, I wasn't blown away by her 'P.S I love you.' So I think I'm going to skip this one :) Thanks for your honest review.
