.................................... why was this so bad?
The first book was fantastic. The second book was a mess, but hey the end justifies the means amiright? Well not in this case, where the end was so shockingly bad.

How is this the same guy who

"*Sigh*

This was such a disappointment. It pains me to say that. It really, really does, because I loved the first two books, and thought that this series had huge potential. I was so excited to read this book, to find out what was going on... And t..." Read more of this review »
The Death Cure by James Dashner
"1.5 stars

It's a very old axiom, but do you believe the end can justify the means? When there's no choice left?


NO. No, I do not. Especially when the end, which in this case is the supposed resolution of 900+ pages' worth of suspense and mystery,..." Read more of this review »

"Well, that was a major disappointment.

Was it just me or did it feel like the author had absolutely no idea where to go with this story? I still feel like 90% of the book was left unexplained. And for me it was completely a cop out (view spoiler)" Read more of this review »

This was a mess. Terrible pacing. Unnecessary romantic subplots. Zero character development from the protagonist. Overall just a very weird and awkwardly written narrative. And so confusing. An acid trip in all the wrong ways. I'm extremely disappoin ...more

A complaint I've often seen about After You is that as a sequel it is wholly "unnecessary." That's right. It wasn't necessary. Moyes herself said she might not have considered writing it had Louisa not lived so vividly with the fans, but she did; thu ...more

Jojo Moyes
“Hey Clark', he said.'Tell me something good'. I stared out of the window at the bright-blue Swiss sky and I told him a story of two people. Two people who shouldn't have met, and who didn't like each other much when they did, but who found they were the only two people in the world who could possibly have understood each other. And I told him of the adventures they had, the places they had gone, and the things I had seen that I had never expected to. I conjured for him electric skies and iridescent seas and evenings full of laughter and silly jokes. I drew a world for him, a world far from a Swiss industrial estate, a world in which he was still somehow the person he had wanted to be. I drew the world he had created for me, full of wonder and possibility.”
Jojo Moyes, Me Before You

“When one thing takes another away, what do we call that?” she asked my class. “Homicide!” I called out”
Chris Colfer, Struck By Lightning: The Carson Phillips Journal

Jojo Moyes
“It's just that the thing you never understand about being a mother, until you are one, is that it is not the grown man - the galumphing, unshaven, stinking, opinionated off-spring - you see before you, with his parking tickets and unpolished shoes and complicated love life. You see all the people he has ever been all rolled up into one.
I look at him and see the baby I held in my arms, dewing besotted, unable to believe that I'd created another human being. I see the toddler, reaching for my hand, the schoolboy weeping tears of fury after being bullied  by some other child. I saw the vulnerabilities, the love, the history.”
Jojo Moyes, Me Before You

“Life is a book and there are a thousand pages I have not yet read.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Princess
