Descrizione

Now newly revised and expanded, Anna Todd's After fanfiction racked up 1 billion reads online and captivated audiences across the globe. Experience the Internet's most talked-about book for yourself!

There was the time before Tessa met Hardin, and then there's everything AFTER... Life will never be the same. #Hessa

Tessa is a good girl with a sweet, reliable boyfriend back home. She's got direction, ambition, and a mother who's intent on keeping her that way.

But she's barely moved into her freshman dorm when she runs into Hardin. With his tousled brown hair, cocky British accent, tattoos, and lip ring, Hardin is cute and different from what she's used to.

But he's also rude-to the point of cruelty, even. For all his attitude, Tessa should hate Hardin. And she does-until she finds herself alone with him in his room. Something about his dark mood grabs her, and when they kiss it ignites within her a passion she's never known before.

He'll call her beautiful, then insist he isn't the one for her and disappear again and again. Despite the reckless way he treats her, Tessa is compelled to dig deeper and find the real Hardin beneath all his lies. He pushes her away again and again, yet every time she pushes back, he only pulls her in deeper.

Tessa already has the perfect boyfriend. So why is she trying so hard to overcome her own hurt pride and Hardin's prejudice about nice girls like her?

Unless…could this be love?

    I’m sorry but that party scene where Hardin confesses to Tessa was so dramatic for no reason ??

    Where is the narrative voice of Hero Fiennes Tiffin. Disappointed with this audiobook where i expected to hear the extra bonus chapter of After narrated by Hero Fiennes Tiffin "Hardin"s voice

    This series had me captivated and read / and listened to all four books in I think what was 4-5 days!! Legit did not even sleep.
    Honestly I don’t usually read fiction and this is the first one in a while that I red. It affected me a lot made me sick to my stomach and I found myself terribly sick with the things Hardin did to Tessa and as much as you are carried away with such a strong love, Id probably never forgive the things he has done to her. Loved the story but it left me very troubled with the message it is sending out thinking that he smashed her life and shuttered it and somehow it says that if someone is fucked up and struggling and went through trauma than it’s fine to accept this type of shit from them when really it’s not. I when you read all of them you get great life lessons and wisdom from these experiences and I loved them. But I can’t keep my disgust to the fact that it is somehow legitimize such horrible actions and assholes like Hardin. It’s very troubling to like a character that is so so selfish and I feel like the redemption should’ve come earlier in the story cause honestly it was like a blow after a blow.. haha great book if I got so invested in this story

    Dude so many plot twists and it kept me hooked!! Finished it within 3 days and I hate Hardin so much but I also love him so much. Tessa is amazing and my opinion of steph has changed so much. I’m starting the second book tomorrow and plan to finish it just as quickly.

    I have seen so many negative reviews about this series, but still decided to give it a try. I actually listened to it on audiobook and read a little of the physical copy. I did not love it, but I also did not hate it. This is all about a romance. This focuses on two college age kids meeting and struggling with their feelings with each other. If you do not like “I love you, I hate you, I love you, I hate you” reads, then you will not like this at all.Yes, there is cheating. I also know some people are opposed to reading books with cheating, but it is real life situations (especially when a HS romance faces going to college). That was not a deal breaker for me personally (not that I agree with cheating, but it is just a book).This was way to long for what it was. I did not see the twist at the end. I did not plan on continuing on with the series, but now I have too! Overall, I enjoyed this way more than I expected.

    I really enjoyed the book, reminding back of high school days, Tessa goes to College, has perfect boyfriend, but meets Hardin, bad boy. Good Girl falls for Bad Boy. But Will bad boy Hardin change for Tessa (Teresa). Or will he hurt her? First book to a series... I cannot wait to read the next.

    This was an amazing guilty pleasure that filled the gaping hole left after being sucked into the Twilight and Fifty Shades series. Entertaining to the bitter end!

    No redeemable qualities. Young girls should not be reading this book. It not only promotes toxic relationships, but glorifies them sickeningly. PLEASE do not read this book!

    Wow. Wow. Okay. First, let me say that I do not enjoy giving a book one star. Nor do I enjoy giving a negative review. I am also not going to go off on everything wrong with the "problematic" elements of this book. I am positive that if they are this glaring, someone already covered it. Also, I don't believe we need to agree with everything we read. Reality isn't perfect people always making correct decisions, and morality isn't absolute. I feel a book is just as valid if it has disagreeable characters and character decisions, so I don't fly the problematic flag often. For this review I am just going to stick to critiquing the elements of this book (of which character portrayal is just a part).

    Summary: Tessa is a good girl with a boyfriend. She is starting a new college. She has a roomate named Steph with tattoos and piercings, which is shocking. She falls for the rude boy who is friends with said roomate, and he is also tattooed and pierced, which is shocking (it's is a big deal in this book to be tattooed/pierced). Oh, and he is British. His name is Hardin. She tosses her nice boyfriend aside because he is nice, which is boring. Hardin is mean to her, which is exciting. They fight. They have sex. They fight. They have sex. They fight. The end.

    Characters : These characters experienced no growth and were one dimensional. Friendships just happened, relationships weren't built, and they offered nothing. Peripheral characters were just that. They served no purpose but to move the story along.

    as for the characters of Hardin and Tessa, neither main character is likable. I'm not opposed to unlikable characters. I actually LOVE books that feature unlikable characters. However, in order for that to work there has to be some depth of emotion, and good characterization. This book and the characters were as deep as a puddle of beer on the frat house floor of regret. Hardin is the tattooed bad boy with mood swings and Tessa is self-centered and naive (so naive I question if her background included a Christian cult) college freshman. This is who they are from the beginning to the end of the book.

    World Building: The scenes and settings lacked description and were quickly thrown together offering barely any backdrop. Frat house, dorm room, Hardin's parents house- It's just different places to have sex or get drunk.

    Plot and Resolve: The plot didn't exist. This was just an incredibly long (Oh my God so looong) slag through two peoples relationship which was a wash, rinse, repeat series of fights followed badly described sex scenes. That is until the twist at the end that was just hasty and thrown out there to probably continue writing further incredibly long and tedious books. The twist also rendered the entire book up to that moment, pointless.

    If you want a brief summary of my reading experience I can say I felt like I was trapped for an uncomfortable amount of time in my ex best friends past relationships. This is a book about the kind of couple that has a shit ton of holes in their drywall, and whose every fight plays out on Facebook. It's that friend you have who constantly complains about how badly she is treated in a relationship, but shoots your attempts to empower her to leave down because, "you don't understand how sweet he can be." If it wasn't for the audiobook I wouldn't have made it through this, and no, I don't plan on continuing on with this series.

    I found out while researching this book that this was originally One Direction fan-fiction from Wattpad. I really truly feel that is probably where it should have stayed. I don't think this book was anywhere near ready for publication. I don't think the author is at fault for that. The editing for this book was just negligent at best. I really think with a better editor and some direction Anna Todd could have made a relatively good story with similar main characters. This just needed a lot more fleshing out.

    I apologize for coming off so harsh, but this is probably the worst experience I have had as a reader.

    I wish I could rate this lower. The severe toxicity in this book is gross and had me rolling my eyes every few minutes in disgust at Tessa ignoring the abuse and Hardin’s creepy stalker-ish possessive ways. Think twilight meets 50 shades of grey, but worse. In all honesty, I think it was made especially unpleasant by the narrator of the audiobook. Sorry, I had high hopes, but this was just bad.

    What the?? I don’t get why they made this terribly written, painfully immature book into a movie? It’s awful. So, ridiculously awful. The writing is high school level, and the immaturity and unrealistic monologue of the main character is borderline unbearable. I was sooooo ready for the book to be over but I thought there was no way I was going to put up with the narrator’s squeaky voice for hours and hours without finding out what Hardin was keeping from her. I am so beyond frustrated with all of the time I wasted on this. The movie is so much better, and I have to say that I can count on one hand the number of times I have ever felt that way. Do yourself a favor and just watch the movie on Netflix, don’t read or listen to this poorly written disaster.

    I love this book! I’ve read it now a few times and I always get something new out of it. The love story is heartbreaking but you can’t not love him

    Holy shit. So the only reason I even decided to give this a try is bc it is all over my Instagram and all of sudden caught my attention after having zero interest in it at all since it came out. This book is definitely all kinds of problematic. Like it’s basically just a book full of toxicity and the end really had me so sick to my stomach. With all that being said, I still loved it haha I did not expect to enjoy it this much and it took no time at all but I am definitely hooked now. *shrugs* Also, HARDIN IS AN ASS HOLE!!! Maybe Tessa will get with Trevor and they’ll live happily ever after. Yeah..right!

    I swore I wouldn’t read this book, but alas all the banter about Anna Todd in my classroom was enough to change my mind. My students were raving about After, but begged me NOT to read it. Said it was too bad and I’d yell at them for reading it, but they get all giggly when talking about it. Well, if you know me at all, you know that I’d do just what they didn’t want me to. One night it was very slow at the bookstore, so I picked up After to read. 60 pages in, I was hooked. It reminded me of when I started reading Jaime McGuire’s Beautiful Disaster. I remember meeting Travis for the first time. He’s one character that many wish were real! Lol!Always and Beautiful Disaster have two things in common; both books revolve around sexy, tattooed bad boys. And each is broken and sworn off relationships for good, but change their mind when a particular virginal girl comes into the picture. Now, I get that this is supposed to be fan-fiction starring Harry Styles, but I don’t get it. Without knowing this before reading Always, I’d never put the two together.As much as the story drew me in, I still found some issues with it. First of all, some of the dialogue was too clean. Very little contractions from college students means I question the validity of the characters, especially if they are as hip as those in the story.Second of all, Hardin treats Tessa like absolute shit. I love a bad boy like everyone else, but Hardin is just downright mean. There’s only so much good sex can deviate the attention away from a guy who is just being a jerk. I understand Hardin has some real issues, but not all sexy guys are verbally abusive. Of course I like Hardin…when he lets his guard down.Annnnnndddd then there is the whole ending. Of course there’s a sequel, of which I will probably read. Even with the negatives, I really enjoyed Todd’s writing. I think it’s fabulous that she became a big sensation on Wattpad and is now traditionally published. As a writer it’s a dream come true. I hope after this, she continues to write new stories.

    I am not sure what to say about this book, I started reading this book looking at a you tube video clip, and I thought :) if someone had the time making a video of their favorite book it must be something worth while reading, also apparently over a million people worldwide read it online. This book blew me away! Harry is a total jerk in most parts of this book, and one of the most alpha males characters I have read in a while, but he is also sweat and charming sometimes. Tessa my hart is breaking for you literally, I must say I am not sure I will be able to face love and friends afterwords. The cliffhanger at the end was cry worthy, wow again ;) this book is like taking a roller coaster ride. It is authors like this that make reading so much fun.
