It’s not as good as Me before you and the narrators accents are sometimes a bit offensive but overall an easy listen.
Didn't like the narrator on this one. Was disappointed. Liked Me Before You should have left it there.
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.

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.

So great to have Louisa and her loveable family back. I really enjoyed this book. So well written. The story was interesting, surprising at times and a tiny bit predictable in the end. Loved the characters from her support group as well. I listened to the whole book in a couple of days, couldn't put it down. A perfect follow on, extremely well performed by the narrator.

I was desperate to read this book after finishing Me Before You. It was disappointing that the narrator was not the same for both books. I liked the narration of Me Before You better. There was a real problem with inconsistent volume during the narration. I constantly had to adjust the volume in my car which drove me crazy.
The story was good but it lacked something that made the first book so good. I didn't smile as much or feel overcome with sadness but I still enjoyed it. The main character and some of the family characters seemed vastly different between the first and second books (more than what I expected).
