By Jojo Moyes
How do you move on after losing the person you loved?
I think this is more than enough to let you know what this book is about. Also Jojo Moyes hates Louisa Clark.
I’m absolutely sure that the author hates Louisa Clark.
This book was really painful for her.
Let me explain, first of all I have to admit that this book started out really great, even though you could see the hate. But I was okay with it because it felt real. Even the accident that Louisa has at the beginning is okay. A little extreme, but okay.
But after that it all got lost. The book is extremely slow-pace, and it doesn’t do anything for the book. Something very random from Will’s old life appears in Louisa’s life, which I thought wasn’t necessary. Also Lou’s decisions are so bad that I couldn’t even deal with them. She kind of gets a happy ending, but everything that happens to her was so bad and weird that I didn’t feel happy for her happy ending. And you know what?, she does absolutely nothing that Will told her to do. That was really frustrating.
I didn’t like this book. I liked the idea of it, but I wasn’t happy with the execution. Jojo Moyes is a great writer, but sadly this book didn’t do it for me. While reading it I understood why some people said that this book was completely unnecessary (something that I still disagree on).
Anyways, I didn’t like it. I loved Me Before You and I had high hopes for this one. But sadly it was just disappointing. But don’t listen to me, go ahead and read it maybe you’ll like it.
