Synopsis: “You’re going to feel uncomfortable in your new world for a bit. But I hope you feel a bit exhilarated too. Live boldly. Push yourself. Don’t settle. Just live well. Just live. Love, Will.”
My review: Me Before You was an amazing book, I loved every minute of it. So when it came time to pick up and read the sequel I put it off. I wasn't sure I would like it, but turns out I loved it, not as much as the first one but it had a great story line.
I have seen a lot of bad reviews for this book because they are comparing it to Me Before You, we all know the first book was amazing but After You was just as good in its own sense. I really enjoyed Lou's character in this book because it really touched on her struggle of grieving Will's death. Having been through a grief like Lou's I was really able to relate to her character and the emotions she was feeling.
This book is definitely a good read, but just to give a warning if you are going into it thinking it is going to be a lot like Me Before You, you are going to be devastated. Read it with an open mind and know that the characters are going to be in a completely different point in life; about the character growth and learning to accept things and move on in a positive way.
