Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of After You by Jojo Moyes, the stunning sequel to the worldwide phenomenon Me Before You.

Jojo Moyes says: "I hadn't planned to write a sequel to Me Before You. But working on the movie script and reading the sheer volume of tweets and emails every day asking what Lou did with her life meant that the characters never left me. It has been such a pleasure revisiting Lou and her family and the Traynors and confronting them with a whole new set of issues. As ever, they have made me laugh and cry. I hope readers feel the same way at meeting them again."

Brilliant

what a superb listen! I laughed and cried my way through it, often waking up at night to listen to just a little bit more..... At first I was thoroughly enjoying it, but then was afraid the story was about to follow a very stereotyped pattern. Not at all, fortunately. A wonderful interplay of relationships, damage and triumph with all characters really coming to life.

The book could have ended several times along the way, and the advantage of listening, rather than reading, was that I was never sure how much more of the story was left, or if it was nearing its conclusion. Ok, I could have looked to see how many chapters it comprised, but it was much more of a surprise and joy in this way.

I have loved two of Jo Jo Moyes other books, really hated one, and been ambivalent about some others. She seems a rather patchy writer, but has really hit the jackpot with this one. The narration is absolutely superb; it just couldn't be better and immensely added to the enjoyment of this story.

It was ok

She did a great job of carrying on Louisa's story, in fact given the first book any story would be hard to follow and it was a well written and enjoyable read.
Nothing like the first book and to be honest I felt that Louisa's personality was a bit too different

Further tales of Lou .....

Any additional comments?

I was a little suprised to hear that there was going to be a sequel to " me before you" but when I read what the book was going to include , I pre ordered it, and couldn't wait for it's arrival. Firstly I would say that it is impossible to create the same intensitivty that comes from Me before you, becouse of the subject matter. An impossible act to follow. . I personly enjoyed finding out what happened in the time after... A few suprises along the way too ! I thoroughly enjoyed the book.good narration .

Poor when compared to 'Me Before You'.

What was most disappointing about Jojo Moyes’s story?

I don't believe 'Me Before You' needed a sequel. It was a great book, with a solid ending. This is a long way from that. It meanders, with little discernable direction. None of the characters particulary engaged me. I didn't even recognise Louisa from the previous book. I have loved most of Jojo Moyes' work. This one just isn't up to her usual standard.

Oh Dear!!!!

As sequel goes this is different. Thankfully the ending isn't as heart wrenching as Me before you. It's still leaves me asking what happens next though. Louisa is really not like the usual chick lit heroine. She is just as messed up as we know we are ourselves. Really enjoyed this book I do hope there is a third.

wasted credit

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A better story.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jojo Moyes again?

Probably.

What does Anna Acton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Saves me having achy elbows from holding the book!

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from After You?

Would never have published the book, it's totally ruined my memory of me before you, just a horrible story and so far fetched. Should have used the same narrator as me before you as well. Nobody seemed like the same character, not just the voice but also their personalities.

Any additional comments?

I would read Jojo Moyes again because I really loved Me before you.

An excellent sequel to Me Before You

Would you listen to After You again? Why?

Yes. I enjoyed finding out what happened to Louisa after Me Before You ended, liked the narration style and found it amusing, touching and entertaining.

What did you like best about this story?

He filled my doorway, holding a toolbox in one hand and a bag of groceries in the other.

- Oh my God!, I said, you're like the ultimate female fantasy.
- Shelves, he said, deadpan. You need shelves.
- Oh baby keep talking.
- And home cooked food.
- That's it, I just came.

He laughed and dropped the tools in the hallway and kissed me.

What about Anna Acton’s performance did you like?

Her voice fitted the character, plus variation in tone and speed appropriate to the context.
