Publisher's Summary

Experience the internet's most talked-about book, now a major motion picture, from Anna Todd, the writer Cosmopolitan called “the biggest literary phenomenon of her generation”. Now with a new bonus chapter read by the film’s Hero Fiennes Tiffin and a letter to listeners read by Anna Todd.

There was the time before Tessa met Hardin, and then there’s everything after.... Life will never be the same. #Hessa 

Tessa is a good girl with a sweet, reliable boyfriend back home. She’s got direction, ambition, and a mother who’s intent on keeping her that way. 

But she’s barely moved into her freshman dorm when she runs into Hardin. With his tousled brown hair, cocky British accent, and tattoos, Hardin is cute and different from what she’s used to. 

But he’s also rude - to the point of cruelty, even. For all his attitude, Tessa should hate Hardin. And she does - until she finds herself alone with him in his room. Something about his dark mood grabs her, and when they kiss, it ignites within her a passion she’s never known before. 

He'll call her beautiful, then insist he isn’t the one for her and disappear again and again. Despite the reckless way he treats her, Tessa is compelled to dig deeper and find the real Hardin beneath all his lies. He pushes her away again and again, yet every time she pushes back, he only pulls her in deeper. 

Tessa already has the perfect boyfriend. So why is she trying so hard to overcome her own hurt pride and Hardin's prejudice about nice girls like her? 

Unless...could this be love?

El mejor libro de mi vida

Me ha cambiado la vida. Todo es After ahora para mí y ahora con la peli...es la primera peli basada en libros que sé que no me va a decepcionar. No tendría espacio suficiente para expresar todas las emociones que me transmite esta pentalogía. 😍

I loved the emotion and great use of adjectives.

Heros' last chapter reading was amazing and filled with emotion it was interesting hearing how Harden felt about the entire situation.

BEST BOOK EVER

This book is amazing! This is one of the best love stories you’ll ever read. It explores real relationship problems and has so many twists and turns which leaves you in one big emotional mess but it is all worth it. Make sure to read the whole series because it only gets better. Anna has done such an amazing job!

Hardin is hardly worth it

This is a very interesting read, but I thought the leading man Hardin was too emotionally abusive, immature, and lacking in compatibility with Tessa. I did not find him appealing which sort of ruined it for me. The narrator did great and the story in general is definitely able to hold the audience's attention.

Oh how this book drives me crazy!!

This book is so good yet so insane. Todd's detailed wording is so good and I can imagine every piece in my head as I've already seen the movie. I am so excited to see the movie and I hope it's just as good as the book. Although the cliff hanger is a major killer and I can't wait to ready book 2.

Good but...

I saw the movie trailer about this novel and I love when good novels are turned into great movies, not that the movie has been released yet. However, I never read the novel and I wanted to know what was so great about it that it got to be created into a motion picture. I loved the narration even though it's all told from her POV until the very last chapter. I did have several eye rolling moments when I worried this novel would be too young adult for me , but though I think she was kinda naive it did seem like true struggles college students may find themselves dealing with. I loved that her characters growth development made her stronger and able to better stand-up for herself. I struggled with why she was so intrigued by him b/c he irritated me several times throughout the story and the cliffhanger at the end never revealed what was really true about their relationship and what she learned about him that made him so messed up, like did that really happen to his mother, etc. I also thought it would end more dramatically like he was a sex addict in a weird sex relationship with the pink hair girl that annoyed her and the bad boy that he seemed so intimidated by only it came back to silly games like they were all still in high school. Then I thought it would end with a car accident but instead she left her car which didn't make sense b/c the guy she left with wasn't really her friend and she'd need her car to pack up and get away from the apartment but the book just left it all in the air in a most unrealistic way. I'd be so hurt I'd never want to see any of them again let alone drive off with someone who wasn't honest with me, it's that why she was mad at S too but I guess it didn't matter for Z. I don't know. The story has true potential but I guess the characters were too immature for me. To still let peer pressure and lies go that far is just baffling to me, but they're still young so I guess he was true clueless how to get out of it. Smh. Hopefully, the movie has a different spin on it. Not sure if there is a sequel but I think the author should have just summed it up in this book. Oh well.
