一个大男人看通俗言情小说,是不是让人觉得很倒味?

我是在翻书时被这本书的封底介绍给吸引:

Some people wait their whole lives to find their soul mates. But not Holly and Gerry.

There were childhood sweethearts - no one could imagine Holly and Gerry without each other.

Until the unthinkable happens. Gerry's death devastates Holly. But as her 30th birthday looms Holly discovers that Gerry has left her a bundle of notes, gently guiding her into her new life without him, each signed "PS, I Love You".

With some help from her friends, and her noisy and loving family, Holly finds herself laughing, crying, singing, dancing - and being braver than ever before......


我想到了年前的电影《生日快乐》

故事其实没多大相似之处,但看完后给我的冲击却似曾相识。

丧偶之痛,应该像是心里被掘出一个洞。努力嘶喊,里头却空无一人。

唯有可怕的回声,让人震耳欲聋,心中隐隐作痛。

如果是你,你希望你的配偶往生后留下叮咛的信件吗?

每月拆开一封,虽是鼓励你努力走出阴霾,但睹物思人,像是再次被牵扯,你最终会舍得放下吗?

作者的笔锋,感伤中带幽默,有些章回看得有些鼻酸。

都说了,是通俗小说,容易让人受骗。

该怎么形容这个故事?

我想,应当是那一句。

此恨绵绵无绝期。

PS:发现我在部落格也是“PS”来“PS”去,看来许多事真的是欲言又止,欲语还休。改编自小说的电影已在美上映,本地放映却好像遥遥无期。

PS 2: 根据维基百科,“PS” 是拉丁语 post scriptum,也就是英语 “Postscript” 的缩写。

电影在美国票房不济,大马这方面也从原本排期情人节档上映,变为“遥遥无期”了!
