A few lines
“It was always the good people that left, the people that weren’t afraid to smile or to love “
We have heard and read various love stories with characters as absurd as possible finally falling in love. Something similar on those lines happens in this book too. (Spoiler alert) The main character Ivan is an invisible friend of a small boy Luke who falls for Luke’s aunt and full time mother Elizabeth. The book has what you call a tinge of magic.
It tells that love isn’t being with someone physically forever but being in their hearts and cultivating the seed of hope. And that is what Ivan does with Elizabeth. He helps her to live again and not to consider life to be just passing of one day after another. He gives her a piece of his heart.
I would have to say that Cecelia Ahern always tries to create something different in her books and this was definitely different. In the begging for a moment I got confused how can the main character be invisible, though he slowly does become visible to Elizabeth.
This book takes you to Ireland, makes you fall in love with the country (mountains on one side, beaches on other and fields of jimmy jones to dance) and the various characters specially Ivan ! So don’t miss out a chance of reading this book.
