After You by Jojo Moyes

After You - Jojo Moyes

Umm. Had it's really great moments. I did the Audible version narrated by Anna Acton, who did a fine job. I listened at the 1x speed. Got bored and tried to adjust speed but even at a fraction higher it just didn't work. Acton sounds much better at 1x. Anyway, the story. Good things. Blah things. I spent a good portion utterly, utterly bored and mildly depressed and I'm not sure that's considered an enjoyable reading experience. There's a bloke of an arsehole in the story named Richard and he kind of sum's it up best for me (I'm too lazy to quote the quote) when he asks Louisa if this is really how her life is. (Again, he says something along those lines.) I can't give much away to those who haven't read the first book, Me Before You. Overall, it's a decent sequel. Has it's redeeming moments. Quite a few. Just takes a while to happen. I might even say this is more of a 3 and 1/2 star.
