Holly couldn’t live without her husband Gerry, until the day she had to. They were the kind of young couple who could finish each other’s sentences. When Gerry succumbs to a terminal illness and dies, 30-year-old Holly is set adrift, unable to pick up the pieces. But with the help of a series of letters her husband left her before he died and a little nudging from an eccentric assortment of family and friends, she learns to laugh, overcome her fears, and discover a world she never knew existed.

BackTracks is a collection of movie and book reviews previously published from my old multiply site. what you’re about to read is only a short review (since back then i don’t relish detailing my experience on a particular movie or book) but if you want to talk more about it, then shoot me an email!
kinda disappointed with the book, i was expecting to read some of the scenes from the movie but it was another story! maybe that’s the perils of watching the movie adaptation first before reading the book… but the characters are not at all the same, i got confused to tell you the truth.
although there are chapters (or Gerry’s letters) that are really heart-wrenching it makes you wanna cry (or something!) like the letter about the dolphins.
i think i’m gonna watch the movie again and compare notes… i was really disappointed. sigh.
