5.0 out of 5 stars Unputdownable, 16 Jun. 2011

This review is from: Afterwards (Kindle Edition)
I downloaded this book on the day of release but I can say with some trepidation as, although I loved 'Sister', I felt a little let down by the end of that due to the twist and was wary that Rosamund Lupton would do the same again.

However, I wasn't disappointed at all; I can thoroughly recommend this book but be prepared to have tissues to the ready.

I was deeply moved by the whole concept of this story but I struggled a little at first with the fact that Grace was talking to Mike, during her out of body experience, and at times I found this a little confusing in the beginning as I had to keep going back to make sure I was fully aware of who she was talking to. Having said that when I eventually got my head around it I literally could not put it down. I was totally and utterly hooked and desperately wanted to find out who had started the fire and why (albeit I had my suspicions from a clue in the early part of the book but wasn't entirely sure I was right and why this person would commit such a terrible act)and what would happen to Grace, Jenny and the gorgeous little Adam. Sarah became my hero due to the fact that she became so utterly engrossed in trying to find the arsonist etc, and that Grace's love and admiration for her grew.

This is certainly desperately moving and as I turned the last page I felt utterly bereft that I wouldn't be reading about this lovely family's love and life any more: it felt so real to me. I didn't want it to end.
