After Ive Gone Reviews

  • ReadAlong With Sue

    I have come across some very interesting subject themes and plots in my time as an avid reader then a reviewer for the past 7 years, this one will stand out in my memory as one that I have enjoyed so much I was either talking about it or anxious to get back to my Kindle to read more of it.I actually read this in one day by the aide of sync on my Ipad and Iphone. I either had one in my hand or another whilst waiting in the car, waiting at the doctors, waiting for supper to cook.I was glued.Jess M [...]

    I listened to this book on audible and really enjoyed it. Only problem was the narrator was so slow so I had to speed it up to 1.5!

  • Eva

    This is the kind of story that keeps me up at night and gives me nightmares because I can’t stop thinking about it and it roots itself firmly into my pea-sized brain!Imagine waking up one morning, checking Facebook, and seeing posts on your timeline dated 18 months from now, from people utterly heartbroken because you passed away. Now, I don’t know about you but a) I’d rather not know upfront about my untimely demise and b) even if I did, I would most likely do whatever it took to postpone [...]

Is this a new form of Cyber Bullying? Jess finds herself in this exact predicament and it makes for some very nervy reading as her story unfolds.Jess is your typical 20 something!

    I've actually had an ARC of this for quite some time but wasn't sure if I'd like it so I kept passing it by in my endless TBR stack. I was afraid I wouldn't buy the whole receiving Facebook posts from the future only to find out that you, will not only be married with child, but also dead in 18 months time. Our main character Jess lost her Mom when she was just 16 to cancer and she has a bit of a break down after that requires a brief hospitalization.At 22 Jess is a bit snarky and not all that f [...]

  • Kate

    This book gripped me like a vice. One of the most enjoyable pageturning psycho thrillers I've read this year.

  • Joanna Park

    Review can also be found at:overtherainbowbookblog.wordprI really enjoyed this book, it will definitely be on my list as one of the best books I have read this year. I was drawn into the story straight away and found it very hard to put down. The author has a great style that just flows beautifully which makes it very easy to read.I absolutely loved the main character Jess. She is feisty, independent and just seems to really enjoy life. I liked that she seemed really human and that she had flaws [...]

    This book resonated with me so much. I got married at 20 to a man 10 years older than me, suffered abuse (verbal and emotional rather than physical in the book) and had a child before finding a way to leave. Jess, is 22 suffers physical abuse and thanks to the weird Facebook messages knows she will have a child but die at the husbands hand rather than leave. She chooses to carry on with the relationship knowing what will happen to ensure the baby is born. It made me think. Knowing what I do now [...]

  • Renita D'Silva

    Love Jess Mount, Joe and Sadie. A beautiful story.

  • Jules (Never enough time to read)

    Probably closer to a 4.5* rating.I was hooked from the start and didn't want to put it down. The book was nothing ground breaking in the genre (psych thriller? What's the term for the last crime/drama pageturners?). But it kept me entertained. Recommended.

  • BIBLIOMANIAC MJ

    *3.5 stars rounded up to 4 This one stands out due to its current, very creative and refreshing plot idea. Bravo to Linda Green for such an original concept!I would categorise the book as a suspenseful family drama, which covers the emotional topics of parent / child relationships and what we will do to protect that relationship, mental health, friendship, death and the future to name a few.We discover from the first few pages of this book that Jess could likely die in a few months, due to the v [...]

  • Rachel Gilbey

    Hooked from the first few lines, I realised this was going to be a fabulous book and I wasn't in the slightest bit disappointed. In a rather strange turn of events, Jess discovers she can view facebook posts from the future, 18 months time to be precise, of friends and family mourning her death. As time goes on we see what appears to be a dual time line story as Jess struggles to work out what do do about all the future information she is seeing about herself, while at the same time, setting in [...]

  • Yolanda Sfetsos

    This is a surprise book I recently received from Hachette. I knew nothing about it, had never read anything by this author, and was a bit confused about the cover because it didn't seem to fit the blurb. But, I'm a sucker for a good thriller and am always willing to give books with an interesting concept a chance.I picked it up the other day to get a taste and before I realised it, I was several chapters in. And wanted to keep reading because I loved the narrator's voice. After that, I was hooke [...]

  • DebsD

    ARC from Netgalley.This book has a great concept, but the whole thing didn't really hang together for me. The facebook posts felt contrived, especially as the book tries to make them look like facebook posts, complete with dates and times and the profile picture of the person posting. It wasn't that I didn't believe people would (view spoiler)[be leaving tributes on the facebook wall of a person who'd died - I've seen that happen - but that so many people would still be leaving tributes months l [...]

  • Nicole

    Linda Green was an author that was once on my radar but has fallen off in the last few years. Her chic lit books are ones that I immensely enjoyed so when I spotted her name on After I’ve Gone I had to have a look. With the tag line Status Update; You have 18 months to live on the blurb, I was immediately sucked in. Linda has successfully made the move to thriller writer with her latest novel and it is both unique and contemporary. It is enough to say that the themes are most relevant to today [...]

  • Sharon

    Thank you to Netgalley and the Publishers for this review copy.Jess Mount checks her facebook account one morning and finds that her timeline has skipped forward 18 months. Her friends and family are leaving sympathy messages and tributes on her timeline as it is now the day, 18 months later, that she has died. No one else can see these messages other than Jess. She has no idea what is going on, but it gives her a scary insight into her future – a future where she leaves behind her husband, Le [...]

  • Naomi

    4.5 stars Really interesting storyline and very easy to read. Tugged on my heartstrings a lot & also made me really angry. Half a star taken off just as I thought the ending was a tiny bit flat.

  • Lynda Kelly

    Back to another 5* read from this author. The first I read by her was as well, then I read one I didn't like anywhere near as much and with this we revert to 5 !! I'm a bit baffled as to why she's messing around changing covers, though. I hate authors doing that and hers are nice ones.The story got better and better as it went on and I had no idea where it was going to end up but I was up into the early hours dying to know !! I posted my "finished" Tweet between 2 and 3am this morning. A clever, [...]

  • Katherine Hayward

    What would you do if you were living your life and suddenly posts saying you'd died started appearing on Facebook? Wow, what an amazing book! Jess seems to have a great life. She works at the local cinema with her best friend Sadie. I loved the way that Linda Green gives us a really well-fleshed out version of Jess's character-we even learn that she cannot live without eyeliner and the fact she is a Harry Potter fan. Jess is 22 at the start of the book and meets Lee at the station . He'a 10 year [...]

    With thanks to Netgalley and Quercus in exchange for an open and honest review. I read Linda Green's book Mumifesto a few years ago which I enjoyed.When I read the synopsis of After I've Gone, I could not wait to get my hands on a copy. Jess Mount is 22 years old, smart, sassy and enjoys working at a cinema with best friend Sadie. One day Jess and Sadie are are on the train on way to work when a dirty old man touches her bum. When Jess confronted the man in front of fellow passengers, I loved he [...]

    Woman opens up her Facebook page to see messages from relatives that she has died and that she was possibly been murdered by her spouse or as she knows him, as her husband to be. While she prepares for her wedding in 2016, she continues to look at the direct message posts from her relatives and friends which state it is 2017 and that she has died. A rather silly, pedestrian novel on par with Lifetime movies in my opinion. The book is written in some British working class slang but not much, uses [...]

  • Katherine Sunderland

    This is the first Linda Green book I have read (despite having a few on my kindle patiently waiting their turn) and unlike the reviewer Green refers to in her acknowledgements, it will not be my last! I can't understand why you wouldn't want to read more of her novels? After I've Gone takes a very contemporary character and places them in a confusing situation, then adds a few more layers of tension and drama that results in a very readable story raising enough issues and concerns to resonate wi [...]

  • Paula

    I'm so on the fence with this book and have been thinking back and forth about what rating to give it. "After I've Gone" by Linda Green is a great psychological thriller and the concept and storyline as wel as the writing are great. I was captivated and it lately takes a lot to captivate me. I can't remember the last time I read a book this fast. So that definitely is a very good sign. The idea was really original and I don't recall reading anything alike before. The use of current day reference [...]

  • Jessica

    Jess Mount is a vibrant, confident, say as she sees it woman. After meeting a handsome man on a train her whole world starts to change when she starts to see future posts on Facebook that predict her death.This book was well written with a humour within her characters that made them relatable. This story was a page turner and I loved how it progressed. My only criticism is that it ended quite abruptly. After being told during one section that you cannot change your future to then very easily and [...]

  • Tony Warren

    What a strange concept. It started quite well and is very thought provoking, that after one dies, Facebook comments continue. Do they ? But then it got very silly indeed as the comments were more descriptive and detailed. In the end they were all wrong anyway!It was an OK book and different from what I would normally read but it would be fine for a holiday throwaway.

  • Emma Williams

    REALLY enjoyed this one. Lots of people saying it's original, which in many ways it is, but I enjoyed the echoes of ancient tales, especially Oedipus Rex: does knowing your fate enable you to escape it or drive you inexorably towards it? A terrific novel. Shall be seeking out more by this author.

  • Louise

    "You Have Eighteen Months Left To Live!"This is the message that Jess Mount reads when she opens her Facebook page and even worsey she can see it!Jess is working at the local cinema with her best friend Sadie, she is grieving the loss of her mum and has a very close relationship with her dad. She thinks her life has turned around when she meets the handsome Lee and they start a relationship. However, the message on her social media page continues to update with more information about Jess's sad [...]
