by Cecilia Ahern

Now in paperback: In this charming novel, internationally bestselling author Cecelia Ahern shows that sometimes not seeing is believing!

Readers and critics alike adore Cecelia Ahern for her lighthearted yet insightful stories about modern women and their often unusual situations. In If You Could See Me Now, she takes that theme a step further, offering us a heroine who is entirely believable, and the new man in her life who is, well, slightly less so.

Elizabeth Egan’s life runs on order: Both her home and her emotions are arranged just so, with little room for spontaneity. It’s how she counteracts the chaos of her family -- an alcoholic mother who left when she was young, an emotionally distant father, and a free-spirited sister, who seems to be following in their mother’s footsteps, leaving her own six-yearold son, Luke, in Elizabeth’s care. When Ivan, Luke’s mysterious new grown-up friend, enters the picture, Elizabeth doesn’t know quite what to make of him. With his penchant for adventure and colorful take on things large and small, Ivan opens Elizabeth’s eyes to a whole new way of living. But is it for real? Is Ivan for real?

If You Could See Me Now is a love story with heart -- and just a touch of magic.

This is one of the sweetest books I have ever read. She writes the characters so perfectly and the story moves so beautifully. I've read several by this author now and this one is my favorite ever.
Initially, I listened to the audio version of this book and it was a fabulous audio read. The accents were wonderful! I fell in love with all of the characters, esp Ivan! Regardless of a few negative reviews... I think you may have missed the point of the book... you have to have a light heart once in a while! I enjoyed the audio so much, but when I realized it was abridged, I bought the book and read the entire version and loved it even more! It gave me greater insight into the characters and the story... I had missed so much in the abridged version.
I have read all of Cecelia Ahern's books, and this is no let down to me. I can't wait for her next book! I give this 5 starz! Such a refreshing and tender read!

"You've Got to See Me Now" was dramatically different from Cecelia Ahern's first two novels. I loved "P. S. I Love You" and "Rosie Dunne" and pre-ordered this latest novel before it was officially released. Unfortunately, her departure from reality to fantasy left me cold. Also, I found Elizabeth was far too astute, too detailed, not to have picked up earlier in the story that Ivan was invisible to everyone else but her.

However, I'm still Cecelia's greatest fan

This made me giggle at points.
Emotionally engaging story line.

We often commonly hear or have read quotes around people coming into our lives for a reason. And when the reason is over, its time for them to disappear. This is the theme of this book.

I am a great fan of Cecilia Ahern, and its always a pleasure reading her novels.

Quirky, fun story of an adult who remembers what it was like to be young and balances her life out in the process. I love Cecelia Ahern and this is definitely one of my favorites of hers.
As a fan of "P.S. I Love You" and "Love,Rosie" I must say that I was not as pleased with Ahern's latest work. After being so pleased with her 1st two books I had to continue on and read this one - I was surprised at how different it is from her other work. Initially the story is somewhat confusing and at times frustrating with Elizabeth being such an "enabler" to her family members ill behavior(s). The story does get better as it goes along and in the end I was fairly pleased. I'm glad that I read it, but I'm hoping for more great reads from Ahern like her first two.
Read this book years ago and was thinking about it recently so I ordered my own copy. I think it is great that an adult can have an imaginary friend, too (as well as a child). I think the end of the book was really well done.
