by Cecelia Ahern
After the worldwide best seller, P.S. I love You, Cecelia Ahern returns with yet another potential blockbuster with How to Fall In Love. The author vividly illustrates the power of love and how it can give meaning to an otherwise pointless life. Christine Rose is the protagonist in this novel. She is full of life and forever trying to help people in their plight. She is determined to help people out even when she has had a bad experience from doing so. This is when one day, she chances upon Adam Basil who is contemplating suicide by jumping off the Halfpenny Bridge. With his thirty fifth birthday coming up soon, Adam has lost all hope in himself and cannot see the point in continuing to live his miserable existence. This is where Christine interferes and tries to dissuade him from killing himself. As part of her persuasive efforts, Christine goes on to make a crazy wager with Adam. She places a bet that she can show him the purpose of life before his birthday. With time playing against her, Christine is now on a mission to prove her newfound friend wrong and make him fall in love with life all over again. Though Christine is determined, she feels she has taken up an insurmountable task. The story further unravels through their wild escapades and it remains to be seen whether Christine succeeds in her mission to save Adam from himself.
