Publisher's 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.

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.
