Before (Anna Todd) Book Reviews

After seriesThis was a turbulent ride. I was captivated by this couple and read the whole series in two weeks! I adore this love story!.Score: 5/5

Trash🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮.Score: 1/5

Differences than others booksI’m only a quarter of the way through, but there are some big differences in this book than how things played out in the other books. It’s confusing to follow because you’re trying to make it fit the first book(s)..Score: 3/5

I haven’t got the book yetI haven’t got the book yet I’m curious wether it’s starting off from the end of After or if it’s s different book in different pov’s of the same characters as After. Honestly I think I’ll only get it, if it starts from the end of After..Score: 3/5

Very DisappointingThis book leaves many questions unanswered that you would expect with Harden’s POV during After and insight in other side character’s histories. In addition, this book is internationally inconsistent and inconsistent with After in ways that are just lazy editing. The Hardin POV chapters spend far to much time on the obvious, even going so far as to have him think something before he paraphrases the exact same thought - making it so that the scene from Hardin’s perspective adds nothing to what we know from After. This book is absurdly short, yet still the same price as all of the other books in the series. The author needs to provide an automatically updated version that is more consistent and covers key moments from Harden’s POV. Key missing scenes: SPOILERS IF YOU HAVEN’T READ AFTER. Morning after destroying his dad’s house, his discussions about Tessa and his progress on the bet with his friends, Blind Bob’s (was that planned?), 3rd party (w/ Zed kiss & ‘I love you’), fake drunk on vodka plan, before and after the bonfire, second Tessa, Noah, Hardin confrontation, him proving he won the bet (and whatever led up to that), and just many other scenes between Hardin denying his feelings for Tessa and being obsessively in love with her..Score: 1/5

Amazing!BEFORE is an amazing book. Anna knew exactly how to make the story even better, giving voice to some of the caracthers that we didnt had the chance to hear. Past, "present" and future, diferente of some books out there, adding things to the main story. Its not boring or repetitive like some books out there!.Score: 5/5

My heartThis series is by far one of the greatest things I have ever lost sleep for..Score: 5/5

AmazingThis book was way more than I ever could have expected. Before isn't just a retelling of the first After book in Hardins point of view. It's so much more. It will take you on an emotional roller coaster, but it's totally worth it. I'm sad that the series is complete but it's been a fun journey and I can't wait to see what Anna comes up with next (:.Score: 5/5
