When is tarted reading Me Before You I didn’t realise just how much I would fall in love with it, but I did, as you can see from my review here. So when I had the chance to meet the author Jojo Moyes herself at the launch of the sequel, After You I jumped at the chance. And by jumped I mean I bought the tickets on the first day they went on sale and then counted down the days.
Jojo Moyes was interviewed by fellow author and The Pool founder Sam Baker. Before the questions started, Jojo read an abridged version of the first chapter of After You where we meet Lou 18 months after what happened at the end of Me Before You.
The interview was insightful and funny. Sam and Jojo talked about feminism, women’s fiction (and if there is a better name for it), and the possibility of a third book. About the latter, excellent news while Jojo is planning on writing something else next, she is thinking about a third book starring Lou.
Now I have already read After You – I listened to the audio book as soon as I could and absolutely loved it. I will be reviewing it in full in another post soon but safe to say it’s a wonderful sequel and getting the chance to meet Jojo herself was the cherry on an already pretty epic cake.
