The Time Of My Life – Book Review #22

I thought The Time Of My Life was one of the last Cecelia Ahern books I needed to read but after checking on Goodreads it seems there are quite a few still to go. This makes me happy!

The Time Of My Life

Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:

Lucy Silchester has an appointment with her life – and she’s going to have to keep it.

Lying on Lucy Silchester’s carpet one day when she returns from work is a gold envelope. Inside is an invitation – to a meeting with Life. Her life. It turns out she’s been ignoring it and it needs to meet with her face to face.

It sounds peculiar, but Lucy’s read about this in a magazine. Anyway, she can’t make the date: she’s much too busy despising her job, skipping out on her friends and avoiding her family.

But Lucy’s life isn’t what it seems. Some of the choices she’s made – and stories she’s told – aren’t what they seem either. From the moment she meets the man who introduces himself as her life, her stubborn half-truths are going to be revealed in all their glory – unless Lucy learns to tell the truth about what really matters to her.

My Thoughts

Cecelia Ahern’s books are always easy to read and enjoyable and this one was no different.

It was a bit weird trying to get my head around the fact that Lucy’s life was an actual person, a man, in fact, called Cosmo Brown. It really did make me wonder how Cecelia Ahern’s mind works!
I liked the way Cosmo Brown started off looking and dressing terribly then improved his appearance and dress sense as Lucy started to put things right in her life, like the way Nanny McPhee’s appearance changes as the children get better behaved!

It’s amusing in places, sad in others but it all worked well together.

    This sounds like a nice entertaining read. Although, I read a Cecelia Ahern last year and I was slightly disappointed by it.

    I used to read quite a few Cecilia Ahearn books, but haven’t read any recently. Not come across this one #readwithme
