Richard CURTIS, (1999), Four Weddings And A Funeral, B2, 2300 Headwords, Penguin Readers

By María Pérez, 1º Bachillerato EFL

Charles falls in love with Carrie at a friend’s wedding, but they must be separated and never see each other again until the next wedding, which will be Carrie’s. Garreth, one of Charles’s friends, suffers a heart attack on the wedding. Finally, Charles decides to marry his ex-girlfriend, but at their wedding, Carrie appears saying that she has divorced. In the end...

In my opinion, Four Weddings and a Funeral is an entertaining book but very predictable from the beginning. In parts it is similar to other comedy books and does not introduce anything new.

It is a book that reads very quickly. I would recommend it to young people who are learning English, between twelve and eighteen years old, although I believe that there is no specific age to read it.

This book has been recommended before (See March & May posts)
