Revue de presse

This weepy, now out in paperback, is guaranteed to leave you out of Kleenex... your life stands still as you turn the pages. An amazing study of love and grief as it poses the wrenching question: What do you do with all the love you have for someone when they're gone? (Glamour)

A memorable debut (Daily Telegraph)

Maggie O'Farrell keeps the reader guessing right up to the end in this engrossing psychological mystery... the characterisation is excellent and the dialogue immaculate (Sunday Telegraph)

An engrossing study of loss and family ties, delivered with the page-turning pace of a thriller (Independent on Sunday)

Présentation de l'éditeur

The unforgettable novel of love, loss and family that launched Maggie O'Farrell on her extraordinary literary career.

A distraught young woman boards a train at King's Cross to return to her family in Scotland. Six hours later, she catches sight of something so terrible in a mirror at Waverley Station that she gets on the next train back to London.

AFTER YOU'D GONE follows Alice's mental journey through her own past, after a traffic accident has left her in a coma. A love story that is also a story of absence, and of how our choices can reverberate through the generations, it slowly draws us closer to a dark secret at a family's heart.

I absolutely love anything Maggie O'Farrell writes. I started with The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox, but frankly, each O'Farrell novel I read seems to get better than the last (if that's possible). Her characterization is phenomenal. Her plot lines are incredibly interesting. And her word choice is the best part altogether. I think you could just open an O'Farrell book, read a line at random, and have learned a little something about writing novels. Great stuff. After You'd Gone is no exception. Great story on dealing with loss. The flashbacks are so interesting. The love story woven into the novel is really just absolutely beautiful. I think it would be impossible not to like this novel.

S'il pouvait y avoir plus de 5 étoiles, j'en donnerais encore pour After You'd Gone. Attention, ce livre est un livre "douloureux", triste, mais très beau, très bien ficelé, très bien écrit: il hypnotise, hante le lecteur et donne envie de lire les autres livres de cette auteur (que j'ai d'ailleurs lus-je n'ai pas été déçue). Alors que le personnage principal tombe dans le comma après un accident de voiture, l'auteur nous distille des indices pour comprendre ce qui a conduit à cet accident par des successions de flashbacks, souvent écrits avec des points de vue différents. Petit à petit, l'histoire prend forme, et le lecteur comprend, analyse, ressent le goût amer de la vie quotidienne à travers le vécu des personnages. On embrasse plusieurs générations, on se lie à une famille avec ses secrets et ses non-dits, mais surtout, on ne décroche pas de l'histoire d'amour douce-amer, belle et tragique, qui hante le livre tel un fantôme, et qui pousse le lecteur à tourner les pages, pas trop vite quand même, car ce livre se savoure, et se relit...

A story of love and loss that you will never forget 21 mai 2001
Par Lynn Corney - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I'm an avid reader, an oftentimes jaded reader, and a book has to be nothing short of remarkable to make me visibly emotional. But Maggie O'Farrell's book made me both laugh and cry out loud, and kept me up all night until I finished.
After You'd Gone is a series of flashbacks, written from different perspectives, that together form a highly emotional family portrait.
You can't help but be drawn in by the characters. You feel for them, you understand them, and you ultimately care what happens to them. Oftentimes, British novels with British characters are a little more difficult for American readers to relate to. But this is not the case with O'Farrell's book.
Male or female, young or old, everyone can appreciate this story. It is an easy read, full of humor, romance, and grief - a unique combination that will stay with you long after you are finished.

Brilliant debut about love, loss, mothers and Scotland 24 mars 2001
Par Leah Stein - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I bought this book in a store yesterday on a whim - it's her first book so I've never heard anything about her - and I stayed up until 4am last night to finish it. I don't read much British (or Scottish, in this case) fiction but after "After You'd Gone" I fully intend to.
First off, it's a fascinating, addictive storyline: you honestly will not be able to put it down. Secondly, the characters are so real and recognisable they seem to reach out of the page and grab you. It's beautifully written; O'Farrell has a deft, poetic control of language. The central part is a really passionate love story. And it's that very rare thing, especially in debut novels - completely original.
It was particularly interesting for me because it centres around an affair between Jewish man and a Gentile woman, giving an insight into modern Judaeo-Christian relationships in Britain - which is not something you find every day in British fiction.
I'd advise everyone to read this. I can't wait to hear more from Ms Maggie O'Farrell.

Beautifully Written 13 mars 2002
Par "sylsbooks" - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Alice Raikes is both heroine and victim. Just one short year ago she had the life she dreamed of and the love of her life at her side. An act of random terror changes Alice's life forever and subsequently that of her family. As Alice struggles with depression she reaches out to her sisters, Beth and Kirsty, deciding to pay them an impromptu visit in Scotland. Unbeknownst to her sisters Alice witnesses yet another event that shatters her already fragile mind.
Rushing home to London Alice steps off a curb into oncoming traffic. An accident or suicide, no one knows for sure. As Alice lays in a coma in a hospital with her family by her side, the secrets from her past unravel. Alice's will to live resurfaces as she is faced with her memories and the voices of her loved ones' reach below the surface of her mind.
This is a truly remarkable story. Maggie O'Farrell writes with such emotion I couldn't help but be drawn into the lives of Alice and her mother Ann, her sister's Becky and Kirsty.

A compelling and compulsive read! 19 mai 2001
Par Lynn Adler - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Alice is a 28-year-old young woman who tells us on page one that she took a train from London to Scotland on the day she decided to kill herself. It won't do you any good to skip to the end to find out why. This isn't that kind of story and the answer is not all that simple, although at first you might suspect it to be. The plot is ordered in a deliberate, yet natural way that jumps back and forth in time through the eyes of Alice, her mother, her grandmother, and her husband until the individual pieces add up to our total understanding. Each little vignette is also a fascinating character study in which the reader is invited to look and draw his/her own conclusions.
A story of deep complexity and maturity, it is hard to believe that this is Maggie O'Farrell's first novel. It has all the elements of great literature, love and loss, trust and betrayal, and the sins of one generation visited upon the next. Yet the writing flows naturally and easily. I found it a compulsive read. I was so involved with the characters that I could not leave them alone for long until I reached the last page. I highly recommend this one and look forward to more of this author's work.

An Emotional Ride 11 avril 2004
Par "bookchickadee" - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
After You'd Gone was such an emotional book ~ in so many ways. I have never read a book that touched on love and loss in such a beautiful and right to the core kinda way, as this book does. You will feel every feeling and thought that each of these wonderful characters goes through ~ whether it's good or bad.
Maggie O'Farrell has done a wonderful job at bringing the reader right into the story. You can't help but wrap your arms around Alice, the main character. You will feel the depth of her love, the deep wounds of her loss, and the helplessness of her being in a coma.
My only wish for this brilliant book, was that the ending didn't come to such an abrupt end. I felt like I invested so much of my heart and time into this story and it just ended ... BOOM... just like that. A very quick ending that didn't do the story justice, in my opinion.
