All of Cecelia Ahern's stories seem like fairytales but this one particularly so.
I really liked this and read it in one sitting. I wasn't that fond of Elizabeth for most of the book, it's true, she's just too rigid and clinical. But by the end I was shedding tears for her and loving the tale. I wish I had an imaginary friend just like Ivan too.
I was a bit unsure of Ivan initially because there's something a bit squirly about a 6ft man playing and acting like a little boy but I soon got over that and he grew on me. I actually felt really sorry for him at the end too. It must be a good book if I'm feeling sorry for a figment of a book character's imagination......
All in all a really good book and I would recommend it for anyone that likes a weepy but feel-good book. And it's just perfect for a beach or garden read.
