❝ Rosie and Alex have been best friends since they were 5, so they couldn’t possibly be right for one another…or could they? When it comes to love, life and making the right choices, these two are their own worst enemies.❞

I’m slightly  late to the party, but I only got to watch the movie last week and I could not resist a book vs. movie comparison. While the movie was definitely swoon-worthy and enjoyable, it wasn’t as inspiring as the book. I liked it less because many aspects of the story were changed or omitted.

Review: Where Rainbows End

Title: Where Rainbows End
AuthorCecelia Ahern
Publisher: HarperCollins
Release Date: November 1st 2004
Pages: 592
Genre(s)Contemporary, Romance
Purchase: The Book Depository | Amazon

❝  Sometimes fate just can’t stop meddling…Since childhood, Rosie and Alex have stuck by each other through thick and thin. But they’re separated when Alex and his family move from Dublin to America. Their magical connection remains but can their friendship survive the years and miles?

Misunderstandings, circumstances and sheer bad luck have kept them apart – until now. But will they gamble everything – including their friendship – on true love? And what twists and surprises does.❞

Where Rainbows End has a much deeper plot than the average chick-lit and is a real page-turner at that. It did remind me of One Day but further research told me that this book was published well before Nicholl’s, so I think Ahern might have inspired some other authors in their writing!
