Title: After the Party. Lisa Jewell had always planned to write her first book when she was fifty. In fact she wrote it when she was twenty-seven and had just been made redundant from her job as a secretary. Inspired by Nick Hornby's High Fidelity, a book about young people just like her who lived in London, she wrote the first three chapters of what was to become her first novel, Ralph's Party. It went on to become the bestselling debut novel of 1998. Fourteen bestselling novels later, she lives in London with her husband and their two daughters.

Ralph McLeary and Jemima Catterick (Jem) began as flatmates, somewhat serendipitously, during the mid-nineties. Jem was actually the girlfriend of Smith, one of the others in the flat.

Then on one smashing night at the art gallery where Ralph showed his work, they got together in what they still often remember as a fabulous party, and they felt like soul mates. As if life before was nothing compared to what would come now.

Living in London, and moving from one flat to another, life was good. Ralph did a series of paintings featuring Jem that brought in quite a bit of money.

But then Jem got pregnant. Was that when everything started to change for them?

But the lovely Scarlett was adorable, and life continued to be good. But then there were more pregnancies and miscarriages, and finally Blake came along. But by then, the luster had faded from the sparkling duo of Ralph and Jem.

Alternately told by Ralph and Jem, the story of their relationship, which was a partnership but not a marriage, is revealed with all its flaws and cracks. Back and forth, during the eleventh and twelfth years of their time together, we watch the connections slowly disintegrate. We see the temptations, the choices that drive them further apart, and then, finally, we discover what will become of them.

What was the straw that finally broke them? Was it the inequities of their partnership? Was it other people, like the single dad from the playground that seems to be stalking them? Or was it time, and a failure to communicate?

Like many stories about long term relationships, After the Party reveals much about what makes a love story work, and what must be done to repair the connections. An enjoyable story that felt real, with characters I cared about. Parts of the story seemed a bit redundant, and I was often frustrated by their inability to do what was necessary, but it was definitely a book that I will think about. 4.5 stars.

I love Lisa's books... read them all and loved them all on a different level. I am however sorry to say that I am struggling to finish this one... I am beyond caring how it all ends.
I am finding the whole story boring beyond words and every time I read a bit of it I think to myself 'well there is 30 minutes of my life I will never get back'... sorry Lisa....

I've read all of Lisa Jewell's books and I've never been disappointed. For some reason I just love her writing. I guess it could be classified as just "chick lit", but to me her writing is more real life than most of those books. Sometimes you just click with an author and I certainly clicked with her.

This is a good book and has some wonderful passages. I only have two criticisms; it was a little too long. I think it would have been better and tighter had the novelist cut about 50-60 pages out, Secondly, the ending was disappointing and implausible, in my opinion. But do read it - it is still worth your time.

I absolutely loved 'Ralph's Party', it was my favorite book in the year I read it (2003). I've been awaiting this follow-up for quite some time and Lisa Jewell did not disappoint. It's a little darker, a lot deeper, not as much FUN as 'Ralph's Party' but nevertheless it's an extraordinary book about love and life, changes that come with the years, and new starts. I don't want to include spoilers here but I will say this novel took me for an emotional roller coaster ride! I found myself wanting to slap both Ralph and Jem, then wanting to cry for each of them. In my opinion, this book's a must-read for anyone who loved 'Ralph's Party' as much as I.

I expect better than banal from her. No tension, no real people. I skipped large portions of the book. Sorry.

This is the third book I have read by this author. Love the way she writes. Can't wait to read more. Just don't want the story to ever end
Loved the book and can't wait to read more by the same author. Excellent seller!
