Review: Thanks for the Memories by Cecelia Ahern

   
Synopsis: With her marriage already in pieces, Joyce Conway nearly lost everything else. But she survived the terrible accident that left her hospitalized--and now, inexplicably, she can remember faces she has never seen, cobblestone Parisian streets she's never visited. A sudden, overwhelming sense of deja vu has Joyce feeling as if her life is not her own. Justin Hitchcock's decision to donate blood was the first thing to come straight from his heart in a long time. He chased his ex-wife and daughter from Chicago to London--and now, restless and lonely, he lectures to bored students in Dublin. But everything is about to change with the arrival of a basket of muffins with a thank-you not enclosed--the first in a series of anonymous presents that will launch Justin into the heart of a mystery... and alter two lives forever.
    Right when I picked this book up, I knew it was going to be amazing. In the beginning, I didn't like it a lot. It seemed kind of dragging but I kept reading because I had faith. And I'm glad that I had that faith because this book was exquisite. I think Joyce is a very likable character and she's easy to understand. She's rather straight-forward and she's really strong.
    This book is filled with magic, drama, suspense, family, and love. It tells the story of a journey of not only romance, but of friendship and family. It's the diary of a heart. I can't exactly classify it as a romance novel since it's not much of a romance but I was sad when the page numbers were dwindling toward the end. I wanted to keep reading and reading and reading. I, personally, didn't like the way it ended and how Justin came back last minute. But, then again, I never like the endings of books.
    Now for my character anylasis:


Joyce: She's emotionally strong and she's another one of the few main female characters that I like. She's independent and, thank goodness, not whiney!


Justin: I have no idea why, but I don't like him. He seems rather cocky and arrogant (just a bit, but enough for me to notice).
