Description

Now newly revised and expanded, Anna Todd’s After fanfiction racked up 1 billion reads online and captivated audiences across the globe. Experience the Internet’s most talked-about book for yourself!

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, tattoos, and lip ring, 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?

Felt like an erotic novel for teens

Hear me out. The eroctic part was what actually made the book decent enough to listen to. It was hot and I quite enjoyed it. HOWEVER the main character, Tessa.... OMG she is the most judgemental, self-obsessed and naive character I have ever read for the following reasons:
1. She referred to almost every other female character other than herself as a skank, slut or whore. Every girl was "caked in makeup" or wearing incredibly revealing clothing. Way to shame other girls because they arent like you.
2. Calling the kettle black, guess who eventually starts wearing makeup and wearing tighter clothes? The main character, Tessa.
3. The worst part on top of her judging the other girls, *possible spoiler* SHE CHEATS ON HER BF. What kind of decent person does that? Especially one that constantly regards herself as better than everyone else.
4. There is such a double standard. Harden can sleep with every girl on campus but he isn't a slut by her terms? Instead he's experienced and sexy.
5. Tessa is completely unrelatable to most readers. She gets to go to college paid by her mom, she gets hit on by literally every guy in school, gets fought over, she is smart, gets the greatest job and the hottest guy in school? The author made her too perfect and it doesnt help that she puts down every other girl around her and even every other person that isnt like her. I hoped she would grow out of her view of the world, but she never does. She always sees herself as better, I couldn't stand it.

Decent, a little immature for me.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The incessant internal thoughts. This can absolutely ruin a book for me if characters have too many internal dialogues.

Have you listened to any of Elizabeth Louise’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not, the narration was pretty good in my opinion.

Was After worth the listening time?

I will not be re-listening to this but don't think it was a waste of time.

Any additional comments?

I think the this book was just based on characters too immature for my liking. Also the supporting characters were very inconsistent. They were some of the meanest people ever and then all of a sudden we were supposed to like them or forgive them. Just didn't work for me.

i could not stop listening but this story is too depressing and the characters not likeable. this guy is a jerk, big stupid ahole and teresa just keeps forgiving him... it makes me so mad that girls might think being treated liked that is acceptable after the guys says im sorry and i love you. a jerk is a jerk no matter how hot or cute he is.
i didnt like the narrator much either...

Must read the entire series!

I listen to audio books to help me get to sleep. This book and entire series kept me up many nights and distracted at work. Every chance I got to listen I did! I finished listing to the series in 15 days. I can't wait for Anna's next series.

Hate that at the end of more than 10 hours you have to buy another audio book!

✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫

I enjoyed this NA romance for what it was, which is a story about a girl who was obviously sheltered but also bullied by her mother growing up and a boy who has ptsd and his way of dealing with that is anger. He tries to be the bad boy but his good boy shows through whenever he lets down his guard. I think he is also trying so hard to be the bad guy that he doesn't have guts enough to stand up for what he thinks but instead does things no matter how awful because he doesn't want to look weak to his "friends". 1/2 the book I loved him and the other 1/2 I thought he acted like a boy and not a man! I hope book 2 will show him growing but from the nasty reviewers I'm guessing he doesn't. That will not deter me from continuing on to book 2 because I have to see what happens next. The story pulled me in from the beginning which is what i'm always looking for in a book.

The narration of this audiobook was great! She does a great accent for Hardin.

Mixed feelings

The author wrote a story that keeps you interested but Tessa is a stupid girl for letting Harden treat he that way. And there's 4 other books?! It made me crazy and evoked real emotions in me so I guess the author did her job. It really was like a ping pong match.

Abusive and Demeaning Boyfriend Romance Story

This was a good book and it did keep me intrigued with all the drama, so much so that I stayed up all night long to finish the 2nd half of it to the end. (So Extremely tired at work now) It is about an abusive boyfriend that is so demeaning and cruel to his girlfriend regardless of how much she gives up for him. I wish Tesse could have made a true friend in college that she could depend on and go to for help and advice. I kept hanging in there hoping Hardin would eventually make a drastic change and start treating Tesse with some respect. Does NOT happen which is very disappointing. I could NOT believe the cliffhanger ending and cannot wait until 11/25/14 when the next book comes out. I guess that's why they always leave good stories like they do, I hope that in the second book Harlin gets what he deserves and Tesse learns to get a back bone and she ends up happy with someone else who appreciates and deserves her.

Mentally Abusive Boyfriend Romanticized

*** SPOILER ALERT ***If you’re looking to read / listen to a book that is basically a younger generation of the 50 Shades series, this is that book. Hardin Scott is an abusive boyfriend that is so “handsome” we have to forgive him, right? WRONG.
No amount of sex or sweetness can overcompensate for the fact that he takes Tessa on a roller coaster of emotions. She literally states dozens of times how much she doesn’t like his personality and how he verbally mocks her. Not cool. He also almost forces her to do certain sexual acts that young boys and girls reading might think is normal. . . STOP.
I am happy for Anna Todd who got her Wattpad book published, super happy! But I wish it hadn’t been this. Praying her other books aren’t the same way.
Narrator does a good job though!

Pure New Adult.

A perfect example of New Adult fiction. Very enjoyable and interesting throughout despite being long and overly filled with angst.

Painfully repetitive

I love some good tension between a love bound pair that shouldn't really be a good fit, yet love and attraction overcomes their differences. This is a teeny bopper roller coaster on steroids. The boy is abusive. The girl is pathetically gullible. The only reason they 'love' each other is pure teenaged lust. Their relationship has exactly nothing real. Its pathologic. At least not where I left off. 14 hours long. I'm tossing in the towel with five hours left. Another series that should never have gotten anywhere near book 2.
