Ms Reid I am floored.
A simple story told simply. .. no frills or extra fluff and yet so soulful. You know what the end is going to be and yet it keeps you glued till the very last syllable. Three cheers Ms Reid.

Interesting novel. Enjoyed listening, but it wasn't one that I thought about a lot afterwards or made me seek out the author for more.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Absolutely not. I enjoy chick lit, but this was like a eating a sugar-free piece of hard candy when you were promised Godiva. There's just nothing to it, and it leaves a bad taste in your mouth. I didn't like Lauren -- I mean, the character was so... blah she almost doesn't merit dislike, but whatever. Ryan: flat. Charlie: flat. Rachel: halfway inflated. I didn't like the family - it felt fake. The grandmother was an attempt at quirky characterization but it felt forced. Ugh, I just can't really articulate what a big pile of nothing good this book is.
If you enjoy witty chick lit with well-developed characters, do not waste your money here.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The narrator sounded like a chipmunk.
Could you see After I Do being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
No. There's not enough depth there to sustain a series.

I wanted to like it
But it is simply too.....simple, or facile. I never felt a connection to the protagonist. I wanted to like it, but I gave up after less than an hour. Others may love it...just not for me.

Very real depiction of some marriages
I know that some of the reviews that they were annoyed because they song just communicate. I'm one of those individuals who recognized it is easier said than done. this book parallels my own marriage in so many ways. I loved the author's writing and perspective. It was a phenomenal book and a phenomenal story. I would even love to see it visually in film. While it's not everyone's marriage story it is a very real marriage story. I think people don't understand how many marriages out there don't have a big problem but have a marriage filled with little problems that suddenly feels insurmountable.

Tara Sands is one of favorite narrators. She’s perfect for chick lit and can turn normal humorous dialogue hilarious!
