After You'd Gone is a series of flashbacks. The first page hooks you immediately with the 28 year old, Alice, telling you that she took a train from London to Scotland on the day she decided to kill herself. The plot jumps back and forth in time through the eyes of Alice, her mother, her grandmother, and her husband until the pieces of the puzzle are revealed. Each vignette is a fascinating character study in which you will be able to draw your own conclusions. This is a wonderful story of perfect love, family and betrayal.

The story is written in a way where one chapters jumps from time to time, character to character. It can be confusing at start but once you get hang of Maggie's writing style its a great novel. I actually had to go a buy this book. I have it in my book collection with hundreds of note cards in the book. The story flows and reveals different sides of humanity. my favorite book so far.

I love so much about this book. The writing is beautiful and fluid. The narrative jumps around but it doesn't feel jarring at all, it seemed to me to be perfectly timed & placed at each point of the story. The characters are vivid. They are exposed and raw and you come to really feel for the major characters, and because of that it's excruciatingly sad. This book is so moving, and so well written--I think it is outstanding.

Maggie O'Farrell has mesmerized me for two days with After You'd Gone (would have finished in hours, but I stretched my enjoyment). Her gift of deftly switching back and forth through time and characters is brilliant! So glad I happened across this jewel.

This book was a fantastic and truly memorable read, and i have found none to match its apt psychological exploration of human relationships and the human capability to love. Maggie writes with a colloquial style whilst recreating something very intense, and in this way, the story took my breath away.

I've read this book twice so far, and both times I absolutely bawled because it is soooooooooooooooooooooooo saaaaaaaaddddddddd. And because I am a wimp. Regardless, this book is a winner, especially for being O'Farrell's first. I would recommend this one if you're looking for something mentally light (not too much thinking involved, although it is difficult to keep up with the characters), but emotionally hefty.
