Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of After You by the Jojo Moyes, the stunning sequel to the worldwide phenomenon Me Before You. Jojo Moyes says: "I hadn't planned to write a sequel to Me Before You. But working on the movie script and reading the sheer volume of tweets and emails every day asking what Lou did with her life meant that the characters never left me."

College student Joe Talbert has the modest goal of completing a writing assignment for an English class. His task is to interview a stranger and write a brief biography of the person. With deadlines looming, Joe heads to a nearby nursing home to find a willing subject. There he meets Carl Iverson, and soon nothing in Joe's life is ever the same. Carl is a dying Vietnam veteran-and a convicted murderer. With only a few months to live, he has been medically paroled to a nursing home after spending thirty years in prison for the crimes of rape and murder.

Lovely characters, well detailed. Loved the narrator and his own life story entwined in the suspense filled discovery of a tragic crime he walks into exposing.

Lou Clark knows a lot of things. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop, and she might not love her boyfriend Patrick. Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live, and now everything feels small and joyless. What Will doesn't know is that Lou is about to burst into his world. And neither of them knows they're going to change the other for all time.

Three sisters, one birthday, one little problem... The three Kettle sisters have had a mortifying mishap. Their raucous, champagne-soaked birthday dinner has come to an abrupt end following a violent argument and an emergency dash to the hospital. So who started it this time? Was it angry, hurt Cat, still recovering from the 'night of the spaghetti'? Was it Lyn, so serenely successful, at least on the outside? Or was it quirky, dreamy Gemma, the sister who can't keep a secret except for the most important one of all?

Would you listen to Three Wishes again? Why?

No, im not one to read books twice.

What other book might you compare Three Wishes to, and why?

The husbands secret- obviously the same author. Similar sarcastic humour which I enjoy and the over the top characters.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

When the 'other women' walks in on Christmas lunch.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. It was quite addictive, the characters were so well written I felt like I knew them personally.

Any additional comments?

Lovely read. I enjoy Liane Moriartry's writing a lot.

Exclusive to Audible! Listen to a discussion between the author and the narrator of The Widow at the end of this recording. We've all seen him: the man - the monster - staring from the front page of every newspaper, accused of a terrible crime. But what about her: the woman who grips his arm on the courtroom stairs - the wife who stands by him? Jean Taylor's life was blissfully ordinary. Nice house, nice husband. Glen was all she'd ever wanted: her Prince Charming.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Characters were relatable and interesting. The narrator held my interest through the whole book. Doesn't get too involved in the not nice details surrounding the theme but rather gets the point across subtly without toning down the sadness of the story. Very gripping and sensitive. I highly recommend it.

Very interesting. Author helps you get to know each character intricately which really draws you in. Very sad in parts & upsetting but interesting & captivating all the same. I really enjoyed this book and Gillian Flynn's 2 other novels Dark Places & Gone Girl. Stories of psychologically damaged females seem to be a recurring theme across all books.
