Publisher's Summary

When one story ends, another begins. The sequel to the beloved New York Times million-copy best seller Me Before You.
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.
After You is quintessential Jojo Moyes - a novel that will make you laugh, cry, and rejoice at being back in the world she creates. Here she does what few novelists can do - revisits beloved characters and takes them to places neither they nor we ever expected.

Jojo has lost her mojo.

I realize that a lot of people will disagree with me, but I really, really enjoyed Me Before You and this is just not the same Louisa Clark. This is page after page after page of suffering. I wish I'd left well enough alone. Apparently, that was a book that didn't need a sequel or at least, I didn't need to listen to it. Very disappointed.

After You.. Comes a Lot of Drama


This second book of the "Me Before You" series didn't keep me up late reading. This novel loses the character depth and insight of the first book, and is comprised of a string of "mini" dramas. The intensity that made the first novel exceptional is lacking in book two.

Ms. Moyes brings most of these dramatic relationship issues to closure far before the novel ends. Several times, I thought that the novel over, primarily because there was not enough storyline substance left to the reader's imagination. The book could have been significantly shorter.

There were some medical situations that should have been researched more extensively, and were not very believable.

"After You" tiptoes toward the chick-lit genre, Narration was very good,
