      I was so delighted when I discovered the movie was inspired by a book I really thought the film was so sweet, such a feel good kind of chick flick The book however, is a whole lot better.This is the kind of story that makes you believe in magic It makes you believe that two people can be fated to love one another and that that love is capable of creating the most unexplainable of miracles It s books like this that strangely feature no religion but yet make me feel closer to God, to the universe, [...]

      Have you all seen the super cute Reese Witherspoon movie Just Like Heaven It was one of my faaaaavorites in high school a fun, quirky, sweet chick flick Turns out it was based on a book called If Only It Were True.So when I was looking for an audiobook for my trip home for Easter and I found the book version of Just Like Heaven, I was excited I also got The Kite Runner, but decided to listen to Just Like Heaven which I later discovered was originally called If Only It Were True first because I t [...]

    6. Rebecca McNutt on said:

      Et si c tait vrai is the story of a man haunted by a troublesome ghost, possibly a mental illness of his until she turns out to be closer to him than he realizes, and when he discovers that there s still some hope to restoring her life, he does everything in his power to help her Despite being kind of preachy, for the most part this novel was incredible.

    7. Jenne on said:

      I picked this up while weeding books at my library because that movie with Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo, where she s in a coma and he falls in love with her ghost, was based on it.I didn t like the movie that much, but I thought maybe the book would be good, I m not sure why Anyway, it wasn t.

    8. Kate on said:

      This book was preachy and sentimental And I am someone who usually enjoys sentimental, romantic books The basic premise of the story was interesting enough the spirit of a girl in a coma can only be seen by one special guy However, the author delves into all kinds of background information that was completely unrelated to the plot such as excessive information about the guy s dead mom and her lover I kept thinking, WHY is this extra stuff in here The book needed some serious editing And boy, the [...]

    9. Jadine on said:

      I wanted to love this book because it is what the movie Just Like Heaven was based on I figured the characters would be fleshed out and you would learn about Mark Ruffalo s character, but the whole back story was different and not nearly as engaging Rent the movie it was worth watching than once and the book wasn t worth finishing even once.

      Dir a que 4.5 estrellas Me ha encantado la historia Mejor desarrollada que en la adaptaci n cinematogr fica Una lectura ligera, entretenida y con dosis de romanticismo ltimamente no me enganchada ning n libro y algo as es lo que necesitaba para volver a arrancar Leer la segunda parte en breve.

      3.5 3.75Debo admitir que las historias de Marc Levy siempre han tenido algo, algo que me gusta mucho Son realistas pero tienen puntos especiales con los que se apartan un poco de la realidad Adem s est n llenas de naturalidad y ternura Todo esto con personajes que caen bien, que son chistosos, que son idealistas A este libro le pongo dos pegas Hubo un par de cap tulos que me sobraron Sin ellos me hubiese gustado igual la historia o m s Y la otra es que quiz s con tanta ternura Levy a veces peca [...]

      This is a wonderful story about how we should value every moment of life we are given and what a gift it is I really loved this book, it is the most beautiful story If only our lives weren t so busy that we forget the basic concepts of life To make the most of every moment.This is the story of Arthur and Lauren and how two people came together Lauren is a coma patient whose soul is free from her body, Arthur lives in what was her apartment They meet and when Lauren convinced him that he wasn t g [...]

      2006 bookcrossing review A friend recommended this writer to me, so when I found this book in a charity shop, I grabbed it off the shelf.It is terrible Really terrible The characters are two dimensional, the writing is bland, the plot very thin and very predictable growing far too overly sentimental and it is just cliche after cliche after cliche I always try to give books a fair go, and I did read this all the way through, but after a point I have to admit that I switched to skim reading And I [...]

      I started reading this book yesterday without knowing anything about the story and guess what It turned out that I have already seen the movie based on it Just like Heaven with Reese Witherspoon I didn t know what to dobecause I always hated reading books after seeing the movie But i loved that movie so much that i wanted to see the differences and i wanted to read the story all over again , The book however, is a whole lot better than the movie , trust me.It s light , funny , romantic , super e [...]

      Die Geschichte von dem Polizisten und seiner Ollen ging mir irgendwie auf den Nerv und ich fand sie unn tig Athur mochte ich und er hatte eine reizende Mutter Das Ende war sehr vorhersehbar, aber ich mochte die Geschichte von Lauren und Authur und wie sie zueinander gefunden haben.

    21. Emily on said:

      Lame Totally, completely, utterly lame Deeply painful to read The prose is lazy and the characters typical and pretty unbelievable And way too corny, with basic carpe diem teenage philosophy Oh my god, it was just so bad I can t believe it s finished to my relief.

    22. Ghada on said:

      one of the only few books where the movie is way much better than the book it was a torture to finish it, I still remember the agony though I read it couple of years ago.

    23. Romaissa on said:

      Before reading this book, i had already watched the movie Just Like Heaven that is based on it, and this made me less excited to read it, but when i started reading the book, i found it interesting than the movie.I liked how the book is so easy to read, especially that it had been a long time since i read in french, i thought i was going to find some difficulties, but not at all the language used was plain and very commun.I also enjoyed the story so much and it felt a lot different than the mov [...]

      La escritura del libro es bastante mala, y hab a varias faltas de ortograf a, aunque puede que eso se deba a la traducci n No me ha ca do bien ning n personaje, y el romance entre los protagonistas es muy poco cre ble Adem s, que persona se cree a la primera de cambio que esta hablando con un fantasma No es nada cre ble En general, nada en este libro es cre ble view spoiler La parte mas forzada es que Arthur secuestre el cuerpo de Lauren, aunque la que conoce desde hace dos d as hide spoiler No [...]

      If only it were true that this story had anything to do with real life The only thing I did like about this book was that it tells us to cherish every second of our life That s true, cherish it, it s not an unlimited resource The seconds I ve spend reading this book were not cherished 80% of this book was a boring story about a man falling in love with a ghost The idea was ok, but it read like a movie script, nothing lyrical or profound about the writing It s probably because I ve read to many b [...]
