A strong and powerfully moving story,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: After the Party (Paperback)
Another great book from Lisa Jewell, a very moving, well written and emotive story as some of the beloved characters from the classic bestseller Ralph's Party struggle 12 years on with the realities of family life. Ralph and Jem now have two children, a house, cat and careers but not everything is happy with these two great characters.
I "stormed" through it today to find out what happens to Jem and Ralph at the end of the story. On the way we meet some of the other characters and some new ones too, along with a lot of obstacles and challenges for them. I would really recommend to anyone who loved Ralph's Party firstly and those who like a great story with great characters, a lot of pace and a lot of style!

I love the sound of this book. Having read it, to you think you would need to read 'Ralph's Party' first, in order for it to make sense?

Good questions. I am sure you could read this and enjoy it without reading Ralphs Party, but I think it would mean a whole lot more if you did read it, and its a great book!
