BOOK REVIEW - JOJO MOYES' "AFTER YOU"


This is the sequel to Jojo Moyes earlier book "Me Before You". After Will had decided to (legally) end his life, Louisa, his caretaker cum lover, had no choice but to continue living. The biggest problem of all was she could not move on. And according to Sam, her new boyfriend, they could not get into a more serious relationship as she was still in love with a ghost, and this reminds so much of the classic novel "Wuthering Heights" which I read when I was in university. Then there was this Lily, Will's daughter born out of wedlock whom he himself did not know about which had made Louisa's life became too complicated and miserable, and reading the book was depressing at times. Thanks for its happy ending - I swore I would burn the paperback if it was ended in a sad note. Go read this novel but not after reading the first book first.
