    2. I was so delighted when I discovered the movie was inspired by a book! I really thought the film was so sweet, such a feel-good kind of chick flick. The book however, is a whole lot better.This is the kind of story that makes you believe in magic. It makes you believe that two people can be fated to love one another and that that love is capable of creating the most unexplainable of miracles. It's books like this that strangely feature no religion but yet make me feel closer to God, to the unive [...]


    3. Et si c'etait vrai = If Only It Were True, Marc LevyIf Only It Were True (original title: Et si c'etait vrai) is French author Marc Levy's first novel, released in 1999. It was translated into English in 2000 and was adapted into the American film Just Like Heaven in 2005. A 2006 Bollywood movie named I See You is also an adaptation of this book. 2004 Malayalam movie Vismayathumbathu was also based on this book.عنوانها: کاش حقیقت داشت؛ و اگر حقیقت داشت ؛ نوی [...]


    4. Un roman très très léger. Et tout à fait invraisemblable. Non, ce n'est pas l'histoire de la femme dans le coma dont l'esprit se matérialise ailleurs qui me dérange, mais tout le reste. Les dialogues, par exemple, notamment un enfant de 10 ans qui ne parle absolument pas comme un enfant, même un enfant précoce. Et plein de situations auxquelles on ne croit pas, entre autres un grand hôpital américain où l'on entre comme dans un moulin. En commençant le livre, j'ai eu plusieurs moment [...]


    5. Have you all seen the super cute Reese Witherspoon movie Just Like Heaven? It was one of my faaaaavorites in high school--a fun, quirky, sweet chick flick. Turns out it was based on a book called If Only It Were True.So when I was looking for an audiobook for my trip home for Easter and I found the book version of Just Like Heaven, I was excited. I also got The Kite Runner, but decided to listen to Just Like Heaven (which I later discovered was originally called "If Only It Were True") first bec [...]

    7. Et si c'était vrai is the story of a man haunted by a troublesome ghost, possibly a mental illness of his until she turns out to be closer to him than he realizes, and when he discovers that there's still some hope to restoring her life, he does everything in his power to help her. Despite being kind of preachy, for the most part this novel was incredible.


    8. I picked this up (while weeding books at my library) because that movie with Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo, where she's in a coma and he falls in love with her ghost, was based on it.I didn't like the movie that much, but I thought maybe the book would be good, I'm not sure why. Anyway, it wasn't.


    9. This book was preachy and sentimental. And I am someone who usually enjoys sentimental, romantic books. The basic premise of the story was interesting enough - the spirit of a girl in a coma can only be seen by one special guy. However, the author delves into all kinds of background information that was completely unrelated to the plot - such as excessive information about the guy's dead mom and her lover. I kept thinking, WHY is this extra stuff in here? The book needed some serious editing. An [...]


    10. I wanted to love this book because it is what the movie Just Like Heaven was based on. I figured the characters would be more fleshed out and you would learn more about Mark Ruffalo's character, but the whole back story was different and not nearly as engaging. Rent the movie; it was worth watching more than once and the book wasn't worth finishing even once.


    11. Diría que 4.5 estrellas. Me ha encantado la historia. Mejor desarrollada que en la adaptación cinematográfica. Una lectura ligera, entretenida y con dosis de romanticismo. Últimamente no me enganchada ningún libro y algo así es lo que necesitaba para volver a arrancar. Leeré la segunda parte en breve.


    12. Nuostabi istorija. Ne tik apie meilę. Apie gyvenimą, mirtį, gyvybės trapumą, gyvenimo pamokas, atradimus ir praradimus. Sunku palyginti su filmu, nes tai vienas iš tų atvejų, kuomet filmą mačiau pirmą. Filmas turėjo savo žavesio, o knyga savo. Atradau joje keletą minčių perlų, kuriuos išsaugosiu ateičiai. O ir šiaip puikus būdas praleisti laiką ją skaitant.



    13. رواية بنعومة الزهروجمال القمرتحميل من العاطفة والإنسانية ما يجبرك على متابعتها والاستمتاع بها أحببتها وأنصح بقراءتها


    14. 3.5-3.75Debo admitir que las historias de Marc Levy siempre han tenido algo, algo que me gusta mucho. Son realistas pero tienen puntos especiales con los que se apartan un poco de la realidad. Además están llenas de naturalidad y ternura. Todo esto con personajes que caen bien, que son chistosos, que son idealistas. A este libro le pongo dos pegas. Hubo un par de capítulos que me sobraron. Sin ellos me hubiese gustado igual la historia o más. Y la otra es que quizás con tanta ternura Levy a [...]


    15. J'ai lu ce livre il y a longtemps! Je crois que l'ai emprunté d'un ami ou de la bibliothèque. Je n'en souviens plus. Y'a un autre de Marc Lévy que j'ai lu durant la même époque mais j'oublie lequel.


    16. Ah Marc Levy. Je ne me suis jamais vraiment intéressée à ses livres, bien que ma mère les possède tous. Mais ça c'était avant.Je vous propose donc ma petite critique de ce livre qui est quasiment aussi longue que ce dernier haha. Je l'ai organisé en plusieurs parties, je raconte pas mal ma vie au début, donc ne vous sentez pas obligé de tout lire, s'il n'y a que ma revue qui vous intéresse allez directement à cette partie là (j'ai titré mes parties pour vous faciliter la vie :))[il [...]


    17. Những điều tôi sắp nói với bạn thật khó tin, khó chấp nhận, nhưng nếu bạn chịu lắng nghe câu chuyện của tôi, nếu bạn có thiện ý cho rằng anh nói thật thì có thể là cuối cùng bạn sẽ tin đấy, và bạn có tin hay không là một việc rất quan trọng vì bạn là người duy nhất mà tôi có thể chia sẽ bí mật này, mặc dù bạn không hề hay biết. Kiếp trươ [...]


    18. Levy,Okey, respiramos y aquí vamos.Me sorprendió mucho cuando encontré este libro pues hace poco vi la película y me bustó bastante, es súper tierna, graciosa y bastante similar al libro (bastante más que muchas adaptaciones que encontramos por allí). Así que pueden imaginar que esa sorpresa pasó a convertirse en un entusiasmo inmenso por leer el libro de inmediato.Esta es la segunda obra de Levy que leo y aunque no me gustó tanto como "Las Cosas Que No Nos Dijimos", no por eso me par [...]


    19. This is a wonderful story about how we should value every moment of life we are given and what a gift it is. I really loved this book, it is the most beautiful story! If only our lives weren't so busy that we forget the basic concepts of life. To make the most of every moment.This is the story of Arthur and Lauren and how two people came together. Lauren is a coma patient whose soul is free from her body, Arthur lives in what was her apartment. They meet and when Lauren convinced him that he was [...]


    20. 2006 bookcrossing review:A friend recommended this writer to me, so when I found this book in a charity shop, I grabbed it off the shelf.It is terrible. Really terrible. The characters are two dimensional, the writing is bland, the plot very thin and very predictable - growing far too overly sentimental and it is just cliche after cliche after cliche. I always try to give books a fair go, and I did read this all the way through, but after a point I have to admit that I switched to skim reading. [...]


    21. I started reading this book yesterday without knowing anything about the story and guess what ? It turned out that I have already seen the movie based on it : Just like Heaven with Reese Witherspoon . & I didn't know what to dobecause I always hated reading books after seeing the movie ! But i loved that movie so much that i wanted to see the differences and i wanted to read the story all over again , The book however, is a whole lot better than the movie , trust me .It's light , funny , rom [...]

    23. Die Geschichte von dem Polizisten und seiner Ollen ging mir irgendwie auf den Nerv und ich fand sie unnötig. Athur mochte ich und er hatte eine reizende Mutter. Das Ende war sehr vorhersehbar, aber ich mochte die Geschichte von Lauren und Authur und wie sie zueinander gefunden haben.


    24. Lame. Totally, completely, utterly lame. Deeply painful to read. The prose is lazy and the characters typical and pretty unbelievable. And way too corny, with basic carpe diem teenage philosophy. Oh my god, it was just so bad I can't believe it's finished to my relief.


    25. one of the only few books where the movie is way much better than the book. it was a torture to finish it, I still remember the agony though I read it couple of years ago.


    26. Before reading this book, i had already watched the movie Just Like Heaven that is based on it, and this made me less excited to read it, but when i started reading the book, i found it more interesting than the movie.I liked how the book is so easy to read, especially that it had been a long time since i read in french, i thought i was going to find some difficulties, but not at all; the language used was plain and very commun.I also enjoyed the story so much and it felt a lot different than th [...]


    27. La escritura del libro es bastante mala, y había varias faltas de ortografía, aunque puede que eso se deba a la traducción. No me ha caído bien ningún personaje, y el "romance" entre los protagonistas es muy poco creíble. Además, ¿que persona se cree a la primera de cambio que esta hablando con un fantasma? No es nada creíble. En general, nada en este libro es creíble. (view spoiler)[La parte mas forzada es que Arthur secuestre el cuerpo de Lauren, aunque la que conoce desde hace dos d [...]


    28. Pintr-o asociere bizară, Marc Levy îmi amintește de Nicholas Sparks. Ambii autori reușesc cu iscusință să-mi sensibilizeze toate coardele emoționale, iar operelor lor mă învăluie și ”mă răpesc” până ce ultima pagină nu va fi închisă.Marc Levy are ceva special, te face să treci prin toate sentimentele posibile și te surprinde prin autenticitate. Iar romanul surprinde prin povestea lui, care, deși e extrasă din necunoscut, pare atât de reală, atingându-ne și cea mai [...]


    29. If only it were true that this story had anything to do with real life. The only thing I did like about this book was that it tells us to cherish every second of our life. That's true, cherish it, it's not an unlimited resource. The seconds I've spend reading this book were not cherished. 80% of this book was a boring story about a man falling in love with a ghost. The idea was ok, but it read like a movie script, nothing lyrical or profound about the writing. It's probably because I've read to [...]
