Holly says,"Memories can be very powerful. They can be the most blissful escape……..But beware, they can be a prison too.” The Postscript is a poignant and powerful portrayal of paradoxical paradigm of – holding on or letting go. It is the tale of transformation or metamorphosis as it is said, while referring to the corpse under the earth, that ‘Even when resting, the body is perpetually transforming.’ One keeps evolving and the process of re-building of shattered lives is the resilience of human life. This is the tale born from the seed of Gerry’s parting advice in his ‘last’ letter: Don’t be afraid to fall in love again'. Postscript is the re-affirmation of the eternal tendency of human beings to fall in love with life time and again.
You should always keep a tissue handy while reading Cecilia 's book. It's a roller coaster ride of Emotions . The story starts with a new phase in Holly's life. She finally moved on and found love once again. Everyone believed or rather she made them believe that she moved on from Gerry and his memories but is it the truth ? She did one podcast on her sister's insistence and shared about Gerry's letter . Soon ,her life turned upside down when few terminally ill people picked up her idea and formed a P.S I love you club. How she coped with all this and whether she joined the club or not is this book is all about. Narration is superb. Language is flowery and beautifully written. Each line is full of emotion . It left a deep impact on me. I really loved this book immensely. I cried my heart out. I laughed for Holly and at last felt proud on her !! Cecilia Ahern is really master of this art. A must Read!!
The book keeps holding the readers until the end. If you have ever felt the feeling of losing someone, then you will instantly feel connected with Holly. How much she must have struggled & strangled, you will feel towards it. The twists and turns will make you hold your breath. You will feel like learning more and more about the story. It's one of the best work of Cecelia, after Flawed and Perfect. The must read and recommended to everyone.

After finishing PS, I love you:- Readers: We wish, there was a sequel. Cecelia: You want it, you get it.
First things first, if you have not read PS, I love you, then you must read it right now, you are missing on something amazing and once you are done with it, get yourself a copy of Postscript because trust me you will want MORE! But if you straight away want to read this book, then, by all means, go ahead, it is not essential to read book 1 to understand book 2 but still recommended.
-----COVER & TITLE----- What to say about the cover, it's blue and beautiful, emitting those happy and hopeful vibes and the title is just perfect.
-----EXPLORE THE PLOT----- One book, various stories, each character in this book has a story to tell.
Postscript takes a time leap of 7 years and introduces the readers to Holly, who has somewhat (a teeny tiny bit) recovered from her husband Gerry's death (who died from cancer) but at the same time feels guilty for being alive and moving on with her life without Gerry by her side. She has constructed herself a new, yet monotonous life but her perfectly constructed life comes to an end when a group of strangers (PS, I love you club) inspired by Gerry's letters approaches her. This club consists of people who do not have much time left to live and wants to leave behind something special for their loved ones, the same way Gerry once left for Holly. They require Holly's assistance but Holly is scared of getting sucked back into the grief she had tried so hard to get out of.
This book is all about Holly's relationship with the club and how she learns to fall in love with life again!
I am not going to talk about the members of the club because you need to read their story to know them. A few lines of introduction is just not enough to justify their stories.
-----MT TAKE----- Postscript is one big tear-jerker. It made me an emotional wreck, I was a crying mess through half of the book. This book is full of emotions, so keep yourself open to feelings. Cecelia has a way with words. The way she has described loss and love is just commendable. I loved how realistic this book was, life was not depicted as a bed of roses. There was no false hope but only truth. Even the characters felt real, it was like I was living with them, breathing with them. There was a lot of heartache but still, somewhere, this book made me want to reconsider my way of looking at life. It teaches you not to take life for granted and live in present, love with all your heart and let yourself be loved.
There is really nothing more I can say about this book. It is perfection. Perfection with reality on top!
Postscript is a typical Cecelia Ahern book which took me to a emotional Journey.
Postscript is a sequel of PS I love you if you haven't read it then I recommend to read.But if you don't want to read PS I love you then you can read this book as standalone, it is not necessary to read first part but I bet after reading you really want to read first book.
This book is truly mesmerizing each and every word makes you feel like crying or keep you bound with characters.Book filled with storms of emotions and a journey filled with love, lost, family and relationships.
