There's No Place Like Here by Cecelia Ahern

Released: 2009

Cecelia Ahern's There's No Place Like Here is about Sandy Shortt; a private detective who has a knack for finding missing people and missing items, and goes missing herself one day. She arrives in a world of the "lost", while on the outside in the real world, ironically, people are finally searching to find Sandy.

While this novel is not nearly one hundred percent fantasy, it certainly does contain the magical qualities of the sci-fi/fantasy genre, while the self-discovery portion of the novel can be considered an absolute literary masterpiece.

There's No Place Like Here is very enjoyable and what some would call endearing, but I don't feel as if there were a lot of substance written around the relationships with people in her life. Perhaps if there had been more detail about Sandy's loved ones, the book would have had more of a lasting impact.

I am a huge fan of Cecelia Ahern, but this is not one of her best titles. My favorites are P.S. I Love You (which has also been made into a sad, but romantic movie) and Rosie Dunne, also known as Love, Rosie.
