Audiobook Review: After You





Ali Listens is my new review title for Audio book Reviews.  I wanted to start splitting up my reviews into categories.  Something I've been wanting to do for awhile, just haven't had the chance.  So today I have a great audio book review to share with you. 










Title: After You 
Author:Jojo Moyes
Publisher: Pamela Dorman Books/Viking
Audio Publisher: Penguin Audio
Narrator:  Susan Lyons, Anna Bentink, Steven Crossley, Alex Tregear, Andrew Wincott, Owen Lindsay
Reading Challenges: 2016 TBR Challenge

“You’re going to feel uncomfortable in your new world for a bit. But I hope you feel a bit exhilarated too. Live boldly. Push yourself. Don’t settle. Just live well. Just live. Love, Will.”

How do you move on after losing the person you loved? How do you build a life worth living?

Louisa Clark is no longer just an ordinary girl living an ordinary life. After the transformative six months spent with Will Traynor, she is struggling without him. When an extraordinary accident forces Lou to return home to her family, she can’t help but feel she’s right back where she started.

Her body heals, but Lou herself knows that she needs to be kick-started back to life. Which is how she ends up in a church basement with the members of the Moving On support group, who share insights, laughter, frustrations, and terrible cookies. They will also lead her to the strong, capable Sam Fielding—the paramedic, whose business is life and death, and the one man who might be able to understand her. Then a figure from Will’s past appears and hijacks all her plans, propelling her into a very different future...

For Lou Clark, life after Will Traynor means learning to fall in love again, with all the risks that brings. But here Jojo Moyes gives us two families, as real as our own, whose joys and sorrows will touch you deeply, and where both changes and surprises await.




I must say this first and foremost, after reading Me Before You then reading After You, this book was exactly what I needed. Me Before You had left me in a funk! After You took care of that and let me know that she wasn't unhappy forever. (Spoiler Alert! Sorry.) But was my thoughts after reading Me Before You. I couldn't help but wonder what was going to happen to Lou. 

The writing style of course is the same as Me Before You and I must say I loved the new characters that were introduced in this book. I wasn't sure what was going to happen when I started reading, but happy that it ended the way it did. 

There were a few twists and turns in this book, just like the first one, and something I knew would happen. I mean Lou never makes anything easy, that's why I connected with the character so much. That and a few other reasons, but I don't want to ramble on and on about that. 

The narrators for the audiobook were perfection, they fit the voices and I loved that there were different voices for the characters. It wasn't just one voice reading all of it. That is something I really enjoy, helps me as a reader dive into the story and keeps my attention. 

I would recommend this book to anyone who read Me Before You and were left wanting, no scratch that, needed to know what would happen next to Lou.
