Read This Review And More Like It On My Blog325 out of 5 Afterwards was a lot of things for me frustrating alienating weird intriguing and eventually uite moving There s a lot of hype built around this newish author largely due to the wild success and continued love for her first novel Sister With that in mind I went into this sopho effort with high hopes that were never uite met There s a lot of potential in this novel about mothers and daughters love and independence but it never uiiiite reaches the heights it could I want to clarify my 325 out of 5 up there it s the result of knee jerk reactions deep thinking The first 300 pages were a solid disappointing 2 out of 5 stars An awkward and jarring style second person POV told with the present tense a somewhat overly perfect main character and a truly irritating overemphasis on italics on nearly every page and I am an italics bold and strikethrough addict mar an intriguing and thoroughly gripping mystery The final 100 pages of twists turns Oh my god and No ways do much to alleviate the various now previous problems I d had and also made me happy I hadn t given up early on this oneThe second person POV rarely rarely works for me as a reader In fact the only time I have actually appreciated it as a storytelling medium were for the rare interludes during The Night Circus which used it sparingly Here with Grace narrating everyone s actions toat them You do this say this want this etc it s very cumbersome and unwieldy to read as a non involved observer By the time I grew inured to the strange and uncomfortable style used throughout Afterwards and it took a while trust me I could start to appreciate the subtlety of the mystery that Lupton has created It s both layered and nuanced in its inception and execution truly the strongest element to the novel is the whodunit This is not one of those thrillers where the culprit or culprits isare transparent from the beginning several cleverly manipulated red herrings lead the police investigation and my theories jumping from character to character I have to applaud such deft narrative sleight of hand I was curious from the start Even when I was close enough to giving up the uestion at the heart of Jenny s problems wouldn t let go of my imagination I wish I could appreciate the spectral astral plane ghost spirit whatever the main characters have going on The fact that what s going on with the two main characters isn t really explained in depth was another misfire for me it came off as gimmicky and rather calculated Another disconnect was with the main character and narrator the mother Gracie She her husband her daughter and son were all too perfect to be entirely believable And as the novel went on and revelation led to revelation it becomes apparent that Grace doesn t really know anyone outside her family at all view spoilerHer closest mother friend has been abused for years Elizabeth Fisher was left by her husband Knows nothing about Rowena even though Maisie is very knowledgeable about Grace s own family Her snap inaccurate judgements of Ivo due to her own feelings hide spoiler

    I'm afraid i was really disappointed with this Sister was fantastic but this certainly wasn't The mother and daughter as disembodied spirits just didn't work for me Grace talking to her hubby was really irritating and sometimes i wasn't even sure WHO she was meant to be addressing There was far too much gushing sentimentality very corny lines and why so much overuse of italics?? I didn't care about any of the characters either and all the

    This book was a good story on the face of it as long as you don't look too closely Lupton is really good at getting across emotions especially love and the book is really touching as a resultBut as I said you can't look too closely Too many characters are under developed and when you find out who the arsonist is you are supposed to just accept that she is a totally different person to the one originally portrayed witho
