Book Review: Lyrebird By Cecelia Ahern

This is a book review of Lyrebird by Cecelia Ahern that was published by Harper Collins Australia on 24 October 2016.

Cecelia Ahern is an international best seller with her debut novel P.S. I Love You being adapted into a movie. As well as writing novels Celia has written several TV series including a comedy series Samantha Who? in the USA.

This is a beautiful story about a young woman Laura who lives an isolated life in the mountains in Ireland until a film crew find her and discover her talents of 'mimcry' very similar to the Australian native 'Lyrebird' which mimics sounds.

Laura is taken from her home and sanctuary and out into the real world and that's when the story really gains momentum.

The story is told mostly from Laura's perspective but also from the film crew Bo and Solomon. The insight into their minds and hearts so you can read what they are both thinking and feeling at the same time was just brilliant and really helped in understanding the characters better.

The writing is just beautiful, I could not fault the story nor the words, it really was something truly unique and special. This is one of those rare books that you come across that will leave you thinking about it and talking about it long after the final page has been read.

I have been recommending this book of magic and romance to everyone it's too much of a special read not to be shared.

I give this book 5 stars out of  5
