Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of After the Party by Lisa Jewell, read by Imogen Church.

Eleven years ago, Jem and Ralph fell in love. They thought it would be forever, that they’d found their happy ending.

Then two became four, a flat became a house. Romantic nights out became sleepless nights in. 

And they soon found that life wasn’t quite so simple anymore.

Now two people who were so right together are starting to drift apart. As they try to find a way back to each other, back to what they once had, they both become dangerously distracted.

But maybe it’s not too late to recapture happily ever after....

Loved it!

I’m so glad I didn’t read the featured reviews as I wouldn’t have purchased! I really enjoyed this book, if you loved Ralph’s Party this is a fantastic read with true to life observations of the journey of relationships from first head over heels love to the mundane & how easy it is to fall out of love if you don’t appreciate what you have. If you enjoyed the characters in the prequel I’m sure you will enjoy this!

Disappointing

The characters are unpleasant on the whole. The ending sugar sweet. By this time I cared very little about their futures. The narration was excellent but I was disappointed overall as other books by this author are much better.

Disappointing

I usually love Ms Jewell’s books but I found this very disappointing. So disappointing I confess I skipped chapters. I couldn’t engage with the characters and the narrator was very limited.
