    Although it features a cast of hot, wealthy people cavorting in and around New York City, Life After Yes is muchthan your typical chick lit offering For one, it isn t a fairy tale In fact, Aidan Donnelley Rowley begins her story where many in the genre end her protagonist Quinn has already gotten her Prince Charming via his romantic proposal in Paris and the rest of the story unfolds as a sort of Reality Ever After In Quinn, Rowley offers us a wholly realistic protagonist whose l Although it features a cast of hot, wealthy people cavorting in and around New York City, Life After Yes is muchthan your typical chick lit offering For one, it isn t a fairy tale In fact, Aidan Donnelley Rowley begins her story where many in the genre end her protagonist Quinn has already gotten her Prince Charming via his romantic proposal in Paris and the rest of the story unfolds as a sort of Reality Ever After In Quinn, Rowley offers us a wholly realistic protagonist whose life although full of the trappings of happiness is accessorized with grief, fear, and struggles with identity Quinn tries to cope with her issues through the anesthetics of alcohol and workaholism and makes a series of bad choices on her way to figuring out what she really wants out of life and love.What further sets this novel apart is Rowley s writing From her facility with dialogue to her lyrical descriptions of the city, her prose is a pleasure to read throughout She knows her subject matter well and captures pitch perfectly the mood and anxieties of a group of New Yorkers in the wake of September 11th.At once entertaining and thought provoking, Life After Yes marks the promising arrival of a smart and witty new voice in contemporary fiction I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated this book and look forward to readingfrom Rowley

    I had been looking forward to reading this book from the moment I had heard about it, and it s didn t disappoint I was able to relate to each character The book brought drama, tears, smiles and laughter This book has so many touching moments it s hard not to fall in love with it I loved Quinn s struggles with the past, present, and future Definitely a must read

    I wanted to read this book, even though the description didn t grab me, because I really enjoyed one of her subsequent books, The Ramblers I cannot say I feel the same for this one The protagonist is self absorbed, selfish and terribly dull Also, if I never read the word prudent again, it will be too son I d venture to say it s in here 100 times I m shocked there were any other books after this one Wow.

    Not sure about this one I liked some things about it and didn t like others Not sure if I would readfrom the author or not They style was ok but I did not particularly like the main character.

  8. says:

    Good book with a lot of topics to mull over about life, death, relationships, finding your other half, the role of technology and 9 11.

    This book was about nothing and nothing happened It took me forever to read it and I tried to read it twice.

    Summary Prudence Quinn O Malley, the protagonist of Life After Yes, is whisked off to Paris by her boyfriend for a romantic weekend and a proposal Back in her New York lawyer life with a sparkly diamond on her hand, she has doubts about her future, her fianc and herself Her father, recently killed in the September 11 attacks, is very present in her memory and she desperately wishes for his wisdom as she navigates that rocky period between the giving of one ring and the giving of a second.Ful Summary Prudence Quinn O Malley, the protagonist of Life After Yes, is whisked off to Paris by her boyfriend for a romantic weekend and a proposal Back in her New York lawyer life with a sparkly diamond on her hand, she has doubts about her future, her fianc and herself Her father, recently killed in the September 11 attacks, is very present in her memory and she desperately wishes for his wisdom as she navigates that rocky period between the giving of one ring and the giving of a second.Full disclosure Aidan Donnelley Rowley is the author of the Ivy League Insecurities blog, which I read daily without fail Thus the fact that I know her a fraction and have some measure of interaction with her, compared to all those anonymous authors out there, may colour my review slightly although I have tried not to let it I would definitely recommend the blog Quinn is of course ex Ivy League, a lawyer, slim, beautiful, fashionable, with a good salary and an investment banker partner So far, so standard But Quinn is not a black and white protagonist, she definitely has her flaws her drinking verges on the alcoholic, she s clearly not yet over her long term boyfriend whom she dumped not all that long ago in order to take up with her now fianc , and she fails quite a few moral tests during the course of the book I savoured this very realistic character not the perfect athletic superwoman so many authors choose, and not the ditzy airhead see Bridget Jones, Confessions of a Shopaholic I wanted to believe better of her on several occasions, and it s not often you feel let down by the heroine Although Jane Eyre and I are going to have words one day about her running off into the wilderness without any money and leaving her belonging on the coach Because that was all pretty stupid and not really worthy of Jane Quinn s grief is crippling and real, and this as many of the reviewers pointed out on the cover gives depth and texture to what could otherwise be passed off as chick lit fluff I loved Quinn s mother wise, feisty, suffering her grief in private, but clearly a woman who knows how to have her fun, and knows her daughter very well Sage didn t convince me he seemed pretty dull What did Quinn see in him His mother is terrible, truly awful, but there is a beautiful moment towards the end which does eventually endear her to the reader His father, like Quinn s, is absent, although for very different reasons, and I think Rowley didn t particularly want Sage s father to contend with the strength of the void left by Quinn s father s death I struggled with most of the minor characters Kayla was too extreme, Avery too pale I didn t really understand why Quinn would be friends with them Quinn s brother Michael was very interesting and I was sorry not to seeof him in the plot.Rowley has chosen a particularly unusual period of life about which to write I am farused to getting the guy being the resolution of the story We follow Quinn from near commitment to actual commitment and it permits us to live her doubts, her fears all those emotions that brides to be are supposed to suffer through, but silently.All in all, a very enjoyable read, most commendable as a debut, and I hope to read plentyof Rowley s writing not just on her blog
