Good but very similar to Sister

While this is a good book I wouldn't suggest reading it in proximity to Lupton's other work Sister. The narrative voice and style are virtually identical as are the themes of love, tragedy and death. While both are good the are so indistinguishable I feel I have ruined both by reading them side by side.

Disappointing

Even now I can feel the enjoyment of Sister, which I really enjoyed. Afterwards is nothing in comparison with Sister. I kept wishing the book to end. I found the whole concept without giving the game away a joke. The story kept going around and around in circles. Certain situations I realized the outcome, half way through the book. I wouldn’t recommend it.
