Book Review for: Thanks for the Memories by Cecelia Ahern
By SAMAMA, Jun 7 2020 06:22PM
I wonder where Cecelia Ahern gets all these interesting, creative and magical ideas from. The hint of magic she has in all her contemporary fiction stories is something I always aspire in books.
The leading lady in Thanks for the Memories, after an accident, gets a blood transfusion from a stranger - a stranger who has a lot of knowledge on architecture. And now, Joyce has miraculously been gifted with an amazing amount of knowledge on historical architecture, and an obsession on meat. She can’t figure out where all this coming from in her head, and at a point she doesn’t even care as she gets drawn to a stranger called Justin – the stranger who had anonymously donated his blood to her.
Oh my! *Squeaking*. The plotline might sound kind of dumb and funny, but trust me; the author puts everything in such an interesting and sophisticated way, that you’re going to end up loving the story. And the book had something I absolutely love and admire in all books regardless of how some individuals devotedly hated it. And that is: SLOW BURN ROMANCE. The book was filled with many beautiful quotes and explanations, some even worked therapeutically for me.
Joyce had a sweet and soft personality, but that didn’t mean she’d let people step over her. That’s something I found absolutely admirable about her. Justin was funny, handsome and interesting. But oh boy was he an arrogant soul. But as the story progressed, he grew wiser and thus nicer. I loved that about him.
However, the ending felt a little unsatisfying. Even though it was all right, I was still expecting a lot more. Some things felt undone. So, 4.5 out of 5 stars. 🌟🌟🌟🌟
