    Ser a 3,5 y me siento un poco injusta, pero mi yo del futuro lo agradecer Lo mejor La manera de contar de esta autora Mezclando partes m s emotivas con otras m s ligeras Lectura muy r pida y engancha Buena sensaci n final Es una novela que te deja buen sabor de boca.Por lo que no le doy mayor nota Es ese tipo de historia que sabes que ya te han contando Muchos de los sucesos lo ves venir Aunque reconozco que tambi n he pensado que no me importaba demasiado para este tipo de historia Creo que merece la pena darle una oportunidad.

    Este ganhei num passatempo um cabaz de Natal Alguma sorte, finalmente DE como j tinha lido outro da autora e n o era mau de todo, resolvi come ar por este N o estou a desgostar, uma escrita leve e descontra da, faz me de certo modo lembrar Cecelia Ahern, mas n o nada por a al m Isto na minha modesta opini o, porque tenho lido cr ticas muito boas L se bem, mas n o vai ficar nos meus 10 com toda a certeza Este foi o meu primeiro coment rio ao fim de 70 p ginas Enganei me Detesto quando isto me acontece, mas tenho de reconhecer que me precipitei na an lise, porque medida que foi avan ando tornou se uma leitura muito agrad vel e at dif cil de largar A escrita leve e descontra da ainda que profunda acabou por me agarrar hist ria que achei deliciosa, apesar do tema ser a morte e a perda Consegui sentir a dor de cada uma das personagens, a forma como cada uma lidou com ela, os seus conflitos internos, os sentimentos de culpa, a oscila o entre o chorar e o rir e o seu mais pequeno esfor o em tentar ultrapass la e seguir em frente Aprendi que a morte n o necessariamente O Fim In the end of the day, Life wins Mas n o trata apenas de dor e perda, acima de tudo uma homenagem ao Amor, Amizade, Vida N o ir para os meus 10 , mas foi definitivamente uma boa leitura Gostei

    Por mais que planeemos por muito que projectemos uma simples sucess o de acontecimentos basta para que a nossa vida se altere para sempre A forma como lutamos para avan ar a partir da , o modo como lidamos com a nossa dor e desespero a base de Estar s Sempre Comigo A autora, Anna McPartlin, fez um extraordin rio trabalho a difundir nestas p ginas o sofrimento da sua protagonista, Emma, e o vazio que, de um momento para o outro, amea a consumir a sua exist ncia Num registo muito puro e directo, McPartlin permite ao leitor aceder desde os pensamentos mais profundos at aos mais triviais de Emma e f lo com uma intensidade inicial t o grande que mal consegui pousar o livro desde o seu primeiro cap tulo Sabemos, e sentimos, que Estar s Sempre Comigo foi escrito com conhecimento de causa, o que permite que surjam, numa leitura que se classifica como leve , algumas afirma es gritantemente profundas e perspicazmente sinceras sobre a vida e o que realmente importante na mesma Surpreendeu me a forma simplificada como a autora abordou este n vel de complexidade emocional, tornando a bastante mais cred vel e muito pouco for ada Acompanhamos bem de perto a grande luta de Emma, as suas pequenas conquistas, a forma como vai cambaleando entre dias ao in cio para depois passar a caminhar a uma passada mais regular e, por fim, mais decidida A acompanhar e a viabilizar esta magn fica hist ria, temos personagens realistas, cheias de tantas qualidades quanto defeitos e unidas por uma amizade muito especial espelhando tanto a fragilidade e fugacidade da vida como a intensidade e alegria com que esta merece ser vivida O estilo de escrita da autora n o nenhum assombro, principalmente gra as prolifera o de frases curtas e afirma es espont neas mas quando colocada em contexto, como eu acredito que deve ser feito, o seu tom funciona muito bem para o que a autora planeou executar Pessoalmente, gostei em especial do n vel realista deste livro, porque a vida mesmo assim como seres complexos que somos, tanto rimos como choramos, tanto perdemos como ganhamos e, muitas vezes, temos que perder para poder ganhar Paradoxalmente, conseguimos sentir nos t o cheios de nada Isto n o tem nada a ver com a minha opini o sobre o livro mas, e porque conhe o alguns microbiologistas que decepariam cabe as a esta men o, n o posso deixar de dizer isto Ao contr rio do que dito no livro, A VARICELA N O PROVOCADA POR UMA BACT RIA Ok poder o surgir complica es devido a infec o bacteriana subjacente, mas a responsabilidade da varicela como doen a cai toda sobre o pequenino V RUS zoster.Pronto E agora que tirei isto do meu esp rito, posso afirmar, em absoluto, que adorei o livro

    When a night that was supposed to be filled with laughter and celebration ends in the tragic death of her boyfriend John, Emma wonders how she will get her life back on track Emma has friends and family to rally round to help her with her grief though Trouble is, they all have problems too and the tragic death of John hurts each and every one of them in different ways There s Sean, John s best friend who s struggling big time with his guilt grief and ends up hitting the bottle Clodagh, Emma s best friend can t help feeling angry about what happens Anne and Richard struggle to understand their loss but have each other to help them through their grief and Emma s brother Noel questions his faith after the death of his friend As the friends come to terms with their grief, Emma realises that the only way she ll truly be able to love again is to lay John s ghost to rest, but is that easier said than done Usually when I come across a new author it s through searching on , but I actually came across Anna s books when I was searching for a new background image I happened upon a site of a book cover designer called Jenny Lloyd and on it, she had the cover for No Way To Say Goodbye by Anna and I loved it the cover yes, I judge books by their covers so I went onto to see what else Anna had written I had some spare money left on an voucher and bought Pack Up The Moon which also had a beautiful cover It s been sat on my shelf since August and I finally decided to give it a read.The book starts with Emma worrying whether or not she s pregnant and her relief is palpable when there s no blue line on her pregnancy test She then carries on her preparations for the night ahead her friends Richard and Anne have come into some money and are having an inheritance party It s at that party where the drama unfolds and John ends up dying It was such a shock to me as although I knew it was coming, it was still unexpected for me We then see how the tragedy has affected not only Emma but her friends Sean, Clo, Anne, Richard and even her brother Noel It s very powerful seeing how differently it affects all 6 of them McPartlin captures the grief of all six friends perfectly and Clo s in particular was incredibly powerful It says at the front of the book that Anna lost her parents at a young age so the grief of her characters is undoubtedly real and must be taken from her own experience Anna explores each friends grief that you can t help but feel so sad for them all that such a tragic thing has happened to them.McPartlin has created such a fantastic cast of characters in Pack Up The Moon and there wasn t one character I disliked The entire book is narrated by Emma and as it s her boyfriend that dies, it s understandable she s our main character I quickly warmed to Emma and her sadness over her loss really comes from the pages As soon as Sean was introduced I loved him immediately I knew right from the off that he had a soft spot of sorts for Emma and I wondered how long it would take Emma to realise this Clo, Anne and Richard were all fantastic characters also I thought Clo was hilarious and I hoped she would eventually find her Mr Right I really felt for Anne and Richard, not only had they lost a friend but they also seemed to be having problems having a baby Surprisingly one of my favourite characters was Father Noel, Emma s priest brother I m in no way religious but I could feel the struggle Noel felt regarding the death of his young friend Noel also appears to be falling in love which adds another dimension to his already confused mind The only other characters in the book are Emma and Noel s parents and Doreen, Emma s neighbour and I loved them also It truly is a well rounded cast of characters and there wasn t one character I disliked which is a rare occurrence.For most of the book I felt Anna s writing was a little off I don t mean that in a bad way, the sentences just seemed as if they were written in a different way to what I was used to reading they were short, snappy sentences and it eventually clicked that it seemed as if Emma was writing to someone throughout the entire book That was very cleverly done and when all was revealed, it all became clearer and I had the ahhh moment where it all fell into place McPartlin s writing is hugely enjoyable and I felt that I was able to lose myself completely in the book The ending of the book almost had me in tears Because I ve never read one of McPartlin s books I wasn t 100% sure I was going to get the happy ending I love to expect It was touch and go for a while and I wanted to skip to the end of the book to see if it ended happily I m such a sucker for a happy ending.Do not let the pretty cover fool you Pack Up The Moon doesn t half pack an emotional punch It s definitely an emotional rollercoaster of a read and I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book Pack Up The Moon may not be a light or fluffy read but if you like chick lit that packs a punch as well as being heart warming then this book is for you Yes, it deals with grief but it also offers hope for loving again and moving past such heartache Someone may well die at the beginning of the book but it s an uplifting read and I hugely recommend it.

    At first I found the narrator s artless, conversational tone engaging Then as the book dragged on progressed would be inaccurate I realized that there was nothing resembling a plot, just events following after each other with no dramatic tension or suspense The love interest was blindingly obvious even for a chick lit book Also, the summaries of certain scenes telling rather than showing were amateurish and cliche infested they went like this They talked all night long He realized that he would have to make a hard choice if he wanted to keep her In the end they cried together and decided to make their marriage work Yuck It wasn t hard to read, though that s the main reason I finished it.
