Publisher's Summary

Now a major motion picture.

They say 'live every day as if it's your last' - but you never actually think it's going to be. At least I didn't. The thing is, you don't get to know when it happens. You don't remember to tell your family that you love them or - in my case - remember to say goodbye to them at all.

But what if, like me, you could live your last day over and over again? Could you make it perfect? If your whole life flashed before your eyes, would you have no regrets? Or are there some things you'd want to change?

    "Amazing"

    The ending really showed me and helped me with my fear that of death although I still fear. It did also bring alive again the story of youth dying but it was amazing how Sam was able to fix everything and how much she goes through the stages of grief. It was just great

    "Cried a few times. Such a great story."

    Loved the story. The reader was ok. The valley girl voices got annoying real quick and the voice she chose to use for Kent was a bit annoying but other than that it was so good. Towards the end it got so good I had to spend hours finishing it.

    Story
    "Another gem from Lauren Oliver"
    What did you love best about Before I Fall?

    The realism of the characters and the growth and development of the protagonist during the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's something anybody can relate to having been in high school. Most people would fall into one social category and identify with the protagonist by either being LIKE her or being around (or victimised by) someone like her. This is the story of is like watching Mean Girls through the eyes of one of the plastics- but with her growing as a person and realising that maybe the way she behaves isn't perfect.


    What about Sarah Drew’s performance did you like?

    Sarah Drew is flawless in any of the books she reads. Being an actress, she's really expressive and able to get the inner feelings of the characters out for you. She has a "voice" for every character that is distinctly different or at least different enough that you don't get confused in moments with a lot of dialogue.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I really identified with one of the characters who is bullied a lot, and there's also a scene in the toilets with a "not cool" girl that makes a big impact. I can't give away too much without spoiling it, really.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must read for high school age kids, parents with teenage children or people who (like me) really like intelligent YA fiction or the writing of Lauren Oliver. Once you get over the initial chapter of the story (which makes it seem like a happy-go-lucky story from a tween movie until the plot takes a sudden turn) , you will be hooked and unable to stop listening.

    "cringe"

    when the narrator speaks in someone else's voice it made me cringe so bad omg. The main character and her friends are annoying, the book is so idiotic, dumb and childish with ofcourse a forced love story

    "Captivating"

    The story captivates you from the start, capturing the horror of bullying and what one person will do to save another. Excellent read

    "My new favourite"

    It's truly a beautiful book. You'll cry and laugh and hopefully fall in love with Kent. It's a perfect story and really eye opening. I'm gonna to re-read it forever. Sad though

    "Eye opening"

    I watched the film and I just wanted to know how the book panned out. It was honestly so real and relatable. A few tears but other than that it is an amazing thing to read/listen to! Would recommend!!

    Story
    "Good story, but I didn't like the main character to much"

    I decided to listen to this book because I thought the idea was intriguing and I definitely enjoyed the plot.
    However I didn't like the main character. She annoyed me most of the times which is unfortunate when a story is told from the first-person perspective... Some people would maybe argue that she might not have been likeable in the beginning but then evolves, but it takes her very long and even in the end she wasn't really my favourite.
    Some voices were a bit over the top, but apart from that the reading was good.
    Overall I did enjoy the story. I might not listen to it again, but it was worth the time.

    "Schöne Geschichte"

    Ich höre Hörbücher häufig zum einschlafen. Dieses hat mich wach gehalten. Aus dem positiven Grund weil die Geschichte so gut ist und sie die kleinen Vernetzungen im Leben darstellt. Aus dem negativen Grund weil die Stimmt der Erzählerin schnell und hoch ist. Schönes Buch.

    "One of those stories you can just listen to again and again"

    I love this story! If you like YA stories like 13 Reasons Why and Every Last Word, you'll like this. Great story, a little cringey at times maybe, but that's probably because I'm an adult reading a book detailing a teenagers thoughts and feelings. Good characterisations and good plotline, clearly and competently delivered by the reader: can't ask for much else.
