Best Friends Or Soulmates?

December 25, 2009 § 3 Comments

Where Rainbows End by Cecelia Ahern is a story of two best friends. Rosie and Alex are childhood friends and they’ve been through everything together and have an amazing bond right from the start. As Rosie and Alex grow, this does not change, even when they start dating other people. However, fate steps in when Alex’s family decide to move to America and live there and Alex has to go with them. The fact that they have to live far from each other make them sad because they’ve never been apart before. Thus, Rosie is soon planning on joining university in Boston so they can be together again. However, the night that Rosie is due to fly, she discovers the news that will change her plan forever. News that will keep her at home in Ireland.

Starting with an invitation card from Rosie to Alex inviting him to her seventh birthday party, this book chronicles their lives from teenage to the start of their careers and relationships with others. Their friendship is tested with misunderstandings and sheer bad luck that keep them apart.

The way ‘Where Rainbows End’ is told is very clever which is at first I think it is strange that there are so many gaps within the pages. This story is told completely in notes or letters, instant messages, emails, text, postcards and even greeting cards which are then I enjoyed reading them. It’s like spying on Rosie and Alex, and it’s feel like a very naughty boy who secretly reading other people emails, messages and letters !

Here’s a snippet:

From: Alex
To: Rosie
Subject: My letter

Hi, Rosie. It’s important that I talk to you right now. It’s about the letter. I wrote some really important things in there and I would love you to read it if you can. Please try and find it.

From: Rosie

    My friend and I were recently discussing about how modern society has evolved to become so integrated with technology. Reading this post makes me think back to that debate we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside… I just hope that as the price of memory decreases, the possibility of uploading our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I dream about every once in a while.(Posted on Nintendo DS running [url=]R4[/url] DS FPost)
