Publisher's Summary

Tamara's childhood. With her mother shut away with grief, and her aunt busy tending to her, Tamara is lonely and bored and longs to return to Dublin.

When a travelling library passes through Kilsaney Demesne, Tamara is intrigued. She needs a distraction. Her eyes rest on a mysterious large leather bound tome locked with a gold clasp and padlock. With some help, Tamara finally manages to open the book.

What she discovers within the pages takes her breath away and shakes her world to its core.

Told in Cecelia's imitable style, The Book of Tomorrow is a mesmerising and magical story for this autumn.

Talented author, but not a great book

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes and no. It was a good introduction for me of Cecelia Ahern's style of writing, and I will definitely read more of her novels; this book was a light read, but it had too many important characters that one didn't really get to know...

Would you be willing to try another book from Cecelia Ahern? Why or why not?

Definitely! Her ability to capture narrator's emotions was incredible. It's what kept me going through as long as I did, though I ultimately didn't like the book enough to finish it.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Actually, I would... it would've made a great movie!

Any additional comments?

The book was OK; Ali Coffey's performance was quite good, with the glaring exception of her dialogue. I will read more from Ms. Ahern, but this one just didn't do it for me.

Best Ahern Book So Far!

I loved this book. It was so very much better than Cecelia Ahern?s normal stuff, which I find soppy and un-original. This book was edgy, the main character although a teenager was great, you believed her tragic life events and how she dealt with them. Don?t be put off by the idea this book is about a ?Magic book? it has so much more going on and the characters are complex. The story is not predictable like a lot of her other books and I was hooked until the end.

Book of Tomorrow

Good easy listening with an air of mystery. I thoroughy enjoyed this and if you like Ms Ahearn's other stuff, I'm sure you will too.
