The Gift by Cecelia Ahern

Have you ever gotten so caught up in the wrong thing that you found it hard to focus on the right things..?? Money, newest handbags, new makeup collections, new boyfriend..?? Then you can relate to this book..

Ok I know that Christmas time has come and gone, but this story is special no matter what time of year it is. This story is about Lou who believes that all of the wrong things are important - his job, money, and affairs.  Gabe comes into his life in a very strange way and helps Lou see what is truly important, in very inappropriate ways. Gabe begins to be everywhere that Lou is, almost to the point where it feels like he can be at two places at once. Lou begins to think that Gabe is trying to steal his job, his wife, his life!! This book does have a lot of twists and turns, but I promise that they are all worth it! I can't say I'm a fan of the way the story ended, but without the ending the story wouldn't have been told (the story at times is told from a 3rd person point of view.). A little cheesy & campy, but a good book to get lost in for a few hours. It reminds me of a modern day A Christmas Carol.
FYI - Cecelia Ahern is also the author of  PS, I Love You.


  1. I loved "P.S. I love you"! So I would probably love this book also :D
