"Before Ever After" has it all. The background settings are breathtaking. The story is full of mystery, romance, adventure, humor, and philosophy.all of my favorite things. The characters are real and very human. The ever twisting plot makes it impossible to put down. Shelley lost her husband, Max, abruptly, blown up by a bomb while she was on the phone with him. Three years later, Paolo knocks on her door, claiming to be her thirty-two year old husband's thirty-two year old grandson. Could Max possibly still be alive? She hastily boards a plane to the Philippines with Paolo, for the most important journey of her life. During their trip, Shelley tells Paolo the story of how she and Max met and her experience with him as a tour guide. Okay.maybe a little far out.but I loved it.

    I bought this book based on the reviews. Boy, I'll think twice about doing that again. This book was totally off the charts.. The story not only was a back-and-forth read but it was totally bizarre. Waste of my time and my money.

    misleading

    Before I decided to read this book, I checked out the reviews online. I was so disappointed with this novel. It starts out wonderful and then by page 50 or so the author goes into long stories dating back to the 1800's , 1700's, and even 1500's. I was no longer interested in reading this book. I stopped at chapter 6!! Not what I thought it would be.

    This was so confusing that I hardly even read every page. It sounded like it was going to be a great read and it turned out to be a great disappointment.

    Very disappointing

    This book was not at all what I expected! I should have quit reading after the first 25 pages, but actually finished the book, and it didn't get any better. Don't read it unless you are really into history or chickens.

    I will not recommend this book

    The book began with a good story line. Fairly good book till about one-third of the way through. Then the writing became monotonous and
    child-like. The ending was OK(thank goodness) or I would have given it half a star. Even if you like fairytales, I do not recommend
    "Before ever After"

    I would not recommend to anyone.

    The premise of this story..a romantic time travel..is my favorite read; however, the author doesn't deliver. The writing is amature and the story jumps all over the place. I lost interest early on and finally finished this book after 4 or 5 weeks (a good read takes me a day or so) and was VERY disappointed with the ending. It made me regret forcing myself to make it to the end!

    Save your time!

    Talk about suspending disbelief! Not only is this story unbelievable from the start to the finish, it is never ending! I stopped about 2/3s through and threw it right in the recycle bin. If you want a really good story that goes from present to past, try Geraldine Brooks' People of the Book. Now, there's a good story that's well written!
