J'adore ces livres! Je suis tellement triste d'avoir à attendre la sortie du prochain (avril 2012)! Jusqu'à présent, cela me fait vraiment réfléchir à ce que je ferais en cas de crise, à quel genre de personnes sont dans ma vie et pour quelle raison. C'est vraiment une histoire incroyable jusqu'à présent. Je ne peux pas attendre la fin :-)
James Lee Burke engages me like no other author. Reading his books is like therapy. Not only is he wildly entertaining, reading him is also an education in humanity especially as it exists in the South. I Heart JLB.
After is a very well crafted book, which I find to be rare when reading YA. The dialogue is authentic and actually adds to the characterization and the plot. I finished the book in one sitting and never found myself skimming to the next good part. For the first time ever, I find the fact that I am not a member of the target audience for the book actually had an effect on me. I don't believe the subject matter could have or should have been handled any differently, in fact, while I initially found some of the devices annoying, the mental state of the main character is exceptionally well developed. All in all, this is a very good read that waits until the very last page to give any hint as to the ending, and it is very quick paced. I don't recommend jumping into this book without knowing what you are reading about, but if you're game for the subject matter, this is a good, quick, well written read.
