Before is Hardin's heart

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

YES!! Because Before is sooooo amazing!

What other book might you compare Before to and why?

All this drama has no comparison

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

Shane East is the perfect Hardin. I remember when I first listened his voice in After We Collided—he didn’t sound like a 21 year old guy— but then I got used to his voice. I loved his narrations in the next installments of the series and ended up relating his voice and British accent to Hardin and only Hardin. I loved that he was back for this audio. Shane knew how to translate Hardin’s emotions, when he was angry, anxious, insecure and of course, when he was turned on by Tessa. My favorite parts were how he changed Hardin’s voice when he was comparing Tessa to Elizabeth from the book Pride and Prejudice. The short appearances of Jason Carpenter and Grace Grant in this audio were great. Jason did a great performance with Landon, Smith, and Zed. The change of inflexion for each character was remarkable.

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

The latest chapters!

Any additional comments?

BOOK & AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: 5+++ STARS

People tend to say that retelling stories from the male POV are boring and a waste of time. I ASSURE YOU, BEFORE IS NOTHING LIKE THAT!

Before Is Hardin’s Heart!

Before is the book that was missing to make this series perfect. I loved it from beginning to end and despite my hesitation to suffer all the #Hessa drama all over again, it has made me want to re-read all the books one more time, because their love/hate/love story is simply amazing.

Before has 3 parts: Before, During and After. It’s not just a retelling of book one, like many people was thinking—me included, it shows the missing parts of the previous books, the truth behind Zed, Molly and Steph’s actions, what happens with Christian & Co and Landon after all the drama—OK not everything about Landon, but at least there’s a hint of what will happen in his book *grinning like an idiot* And of course, the most important thing about this book: HARDIN! His feelings, his emotions, his intentions. Everything. I loved reading his POV in books #2, #3 and #4, but seriously, reading his ASSHOLE SIDE IN FULL FORCE was the best! I always enjoy reading how a man changes out of love, especially if it’s from his POV, so I was very happy reading this book.

I really liked that this book wasn’t a “repetition” of After. The events that are featured in this book are just the right ones to show how really Hardin was feeling about Tessa before and after they met. I loved the introductions in each chapter. For me they were “excerpts” from the book Hardin wrote when he became an author. And of course, I love love love the latest chapters, the #Hessa ones. My heart was beating faster and my eyes were tearing while I was reading/listening more about their HEA. That was BEAUTIFUL.

There’s something very important that needs to be said: Anna Todd’s writing style was perfect! She improved it so much since the last book she last wrote. I loved that this book was shorter than the others, and yet she put everything in it and it all was perfectly connected to the whole series.

Shane East is the perfect Hardin. I remember when I first listened his voice in After We Collided—he didn’t sound like a 21 year old guy— but then I got used to his voice. I loved his narrations in the next installments of the series and ended up relating his voice and British accent to Hardin and only Hardin. I loved that he was back for this audio. Shane knew how to translate Hardin’s emotions, when he was angry, anxious, insecure and of course, when he was turned on by Tessa. My favorite parts were how he changed Hardin’s voice when he was comparing Tessa to Elizabeth from the book Pride and Prejudice. The short appearances of Jason Carpenter and Grace Grant in this audio were great. Jason did a great performance with Landon, Smith, and Zed. The change of inflexion for each character was remarkable.

Note: I recommend to read this book AFTER reading the first four books of the series, otherwise, you’ll be spoiled and you’d miss all the drama.

I wanted more

I really liked pt. one and wish the book was more of that. Delving into Hardin's past. Telling us what we didnt kniew about the others. She didnt even mention what happened with Stephanie and Zed. Just a little excerpt read in less tham 2 mins.

Part two was just retelling of the first book from Hardin ' s POV. But It was basically just retelling the dirty bits. Nothing that tells us about hardin during the in between times. Like the bet for example... they told us what led up to it but not what he did or how he handled it from his side.

Pt 3 was just boring. It wasn't really "After" we have no resolution of the other characters. It was lacking.

I guess that's my problem with the whole book it was just lacking. Mostly boring and not enough to keep me interested.

I love Hessa!

Pointless but still good...spoilers!!!

I could have skipped this book and been just fine but it was good I guess. It's really repetitious and a boring point of view from Hardin, but none the less, I loved the others, so I had to finish out the series. If you want to play "find the inconsistencies" between details in the first four books and this one, you'll be pleased. Lots of things must have gotten mixed up in the editing process because small details from the other books are not consistent in this book. For one, when Tessa went to her friend's wedding in Chicago, the book prior said she did not ask Hardin to go with her as her date, she wanted to go alone, but that she met up with Hardin afterwards for dinner and sex at her hotel, and because she was only there for one night. This book said Hardin went as her date to her friend's wedding and she stayed with him for 3 days after it. It also says that Smith loves everything about Hardin except his tattoos, and that it's the only thing he argues about with Hardin, earlier in this book. Then later in this book, when they're reading from Smith's point of view, it says he loves Hardin's tattoos and wants to get them himself when he's older. Small details like that matter to true fans. Oh one more, the book prior says his daughter Emory is 6 when Tessa is pregnant with Audin. This book says they are only five years apart. Just saying...the details matter to true fans who have invested many hours listening to these books. I also think the movie was awful after reading these books. They made a "Disney" version of these books for theaters, meaning they toned it down way too much. And wth did they do with Hardin's character in the movie??? He's way too nice in it!!

Love this series it is the absolute best

I totally fell in Love with these characters from start to finish! It was definitely love at first sight and the long road they endured realizing they are soulmates. Nothing last forever but their love did and it stood the test of time! Great writing of modern day love story!

Best In series

I enjoyed this series greatly. I found myself being drawn to the raw emotion of the characters throughout, and cheering for them to become who they eventually became! I thoroughly enjoyed the final book, which gave so much perspective to all the characters and wrapped up the series so well. As others have said, this is the best of them. My husband and I saw the movie before I listened to the books, and after hearing the first book, thought the movie had taken a very liberal license with the story, only to realize after this final book that what it did was meld the final outcome in some way to reconcile the story into one movie rather than having sequels.

Nice ending for all

I like how this book gives us incite to most of the supporting characters. Not everyone gets a happy ending but that’s how life is. Anna Todd created a fascinating group of people. I will forever be a fan

Enjoyed all of the series

I enjoyed the whole series. Am upset it’s over, although I wish book 5 would of gone into more details of the “other” characters in the story. The beginning was great, I just kept waiting for more of their stories. How they ended up. Look forward to the Landon series next..

Same things we have already heard

This book was essentially just the same things we have already heard but from each characters point of view. Could have done without it.
