My rating: 4/5⭐
First of all thank you so much Penguin Random House- Michael Joseph Imprint for the e-ARC through NetGalley.
It’s my third Jojo Moyes read and as usual I enjoyed it. The different stories deal with different facets of life and inter-human relationships and emotions — love, regret, jealousy, betrayal— and these have been so beautifully depicted. Some stories were romantic, some deep, some funny. I wish the short story “Between the Tweets” was a little longer, I think more of suspense could have made the story better. Otherwise, i enjoyed it.
I’m so glad I got to review this book.
After You by Jojo Moyes
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I missed Will in the entire book.
The storytelling was commendable. I liked how Lou-Lily relationship bloomed; though I got the shock of my life when Lily appeared and claimed to be Will’s daughter.
Its true what a little carelessness in parenting can cause to a young mind. That’s been projected, I’m glad, parents should keep that in mind.
It was kind of hard to digest seeing Lou moving on with Sam, but one also cannot deny the fact that Will had chosen his freedom over Lou’s love. So she has the right to move on.
Mr. Trainer just pissed me off. I felt really awful for Mrs. Traynor on her first appearance in this book.
Death affects the loved ones more than the deceased. Everyone, except Georgia, was seen to be living with a void in their lives.
There was another character who just pissed me off — Tanya Houghton-Miller, a self obsessed, bitch who calls herself a mother.
It was a good read but Will…. You were missed…
