At this point I realized that probably Me Before You is not the worst sequel I have ever read. It is one of the few books that talks about what happens after you reach the end. It is a common practice that we are comfortable with the pain a book leaves us with, but that is not the end of the life. Time passes by and if you wish to live (which you should), you have to move on.
Probably the life after heartbreak is boring and that is what Jojo Moyes wanted to describe. All the monotonies she wrote are may be to remind us that heartbreaks do make your life shit, but if you are persistent enough, you can overcome that.
There’s also a beautiful thing that Lily tells Lou – “Moving on doesn’t mean you love the person any less.”
While I’ll ponder upon the thought for the next few days, I still count After You as a pretty weak sequel. I would have loved it much more if it was shorter in length; if it focussed more on Lou and her life rather than stuffing everybody’s life into the context.
'After you' by Jojo Moyes is a sequel to one of her previous books 'Me before you'.
Me before you was one of a kind. In the end it made the reader both laugh and cry. But, the story of Lou Clark continues beyond 'me before you', in this 'after you'.
Losing a loved one is not so easy to deal with. It takes time to heal, and though it is difficult to forget, it might take years just to make you smile at those memories, rather than shed a tear whenever you hear the name.
Now, let us go into the review of it.
When i started reading this book, what i expected was another story similar to P.S I love you by Cecilia Ahern. But, it was not going to be.
Lou Clark still hasn't recovered from what she has witnessed and what she has been a part of. She made a promise to live, but she is yet to start living. And she looks like she still hasn't started working on the promise.
After Will, she is on her own. It had been 18 months, but she is still not over to it. And she still has plans to start over, but she herself doesn't know when. All she does is sleep, eat and her job at the airport bar. She slips and falls from her building. But, she lives with just a few fractures.
Her parents are worried and during her stay at her parents home, she feels that she is slowly being sucked back into her former world, which was very small until Will came.
One might say that she is still getting over it. Yes. She is getting over the tragedy. So, this novel should have been about her. About how she kept up her promise that she made. But, this is not about that.
Though the novel totally does become an antidote for that sore disappointment, it might have done better without Lily. The character of Lily looked like an unwelcome addition.
Apart from that, the book was a breeze. It took me one night to complete it. All the new characters and new budding romantic plots takes the story to the heart of the readers.
But still, "After you" is a good read as well.
what the hell are you up to now Clark???
The story was just fine we're we left it.
This book seemed to at places for against the first book and was not as emotionally impactful as that one.
Don't read it if you don't wanna spoil the first one.
