The Time of My Life
Cecelia Ahern's books just keep getting better and better!
The Time of My Life is set in a world that is completely like ours except for one thing; when life becomes stagnant and you are all but withdrawing from everyone, your Life steps in, literally. And in Lucy's case it is in the form of a dishevelled looking man who needs her to improve her situation for him to look and feel better! Lucy's Life has been messed up since she broke up with her last boyfriend, who she still obsesses over. She is dissatisfied in her job, she invites no one to her untidy home, she disappoints her family members, especially her father, and, she lies about things to make herself feel better. But Lucy's Life wants her to change all that, and he believes things will change when she stops telling lies.
The Time of My Life shows what happens when Lucy begins to reveal the truth about herself and her true feelings. It is filled with hilarious, believable scenarios, with lovable characters, and an eye-rollingly smarmy ex-boyfriend. It will make you consider if your own life is firing on all cylinders, and if you are being true to yourself. A fun, fulfilling read, that makes you think.
