Review: ‘On the Other Side’ by Carrie Hope Fletcher

After months of reading nothing but non-fiction books or academic textbooks, On the Other Side was the book which restarted my imagination. Creative, magical and uplifting, Carrie’s first fiction book is a tale of romance which fans of Mitch Albom’s The Five People You Meet in Heaven will love.


Carrie Hope Fletcher has already made a huge impact in the book industry. All I Know Now – her non-fiction book sharing her advice on romance, friendship and more – became a Sunday Times bestseller when it was published last year. Much like how All I Know Now built upon Carrie’s advice blog on Tumblr, On the Other Side also contains some references to her online persona – which will no doubt delight fans of her YouTube channel, ItsWayPastMyBedtime.

Imagination when reading a good book is magic in itself, and something I only experience when reading certain works of fiction. However, that’s not to say that I have no imagination altogether – far from it. Instead, this rare phenomenon only comes with a novel complete with a gripping narrative and believable characters. I mean, after reading On the Other Side, how could you not love Evie Snow?

Admittedly. I’ve never really been a fan of romance novels, but this is more than just a simple love story. In amongst the creative plot lies some important life lessons. Not only is On the Other Side a heart-warming and beautiful novel, but it ends on a high note and with a message every reader can take away.

Rating: 4/5

  1. I’m hoping to get my hands on this book soon. I started reading the All I Know Now book but I’ve not found the time to keep reading it! So I need to find the time before getting this one.
    Sounds like a good read though 🙂

    • Oh, ‘All I Know Now’ and ‘On the Other Side’ are very different from each other, but both are worth a read.

      I really enjoyed it! Have you read any of Mitch Albom’s books too? I have a feeling you’ll like them.
