After You – JoJo Moyes

This is the sequel to the extremely popular Me Before You. I had sort of forgotten about that book by JoJo Moyes, but then the movie version popped up and I was reintroduced to the character of Louisa Clark played brilliantly by Emilia Clarke. The author has stated that she wasn’t really going to investigate what happened to this character, but the public’s interest spurned her forward to write this book.

I wanted to love this book.

I had a hard time getting back into the groove of Louisa and her family. I thought that her experience with Will Traynor would propel her to live a new kind of life. The story was mostly (understandably) depressing. The writing is solid, Louisa is still quick witted and humorous, but the story dragged along.

Let me know your thoughts if you read this book this summer!
