    I loved it.

    This has to be my favorite book of the series. I've already read the book and it was nice to go back to this crazy love story with this lovely Audiobook. I enjoyed it everyday in the metro on my way to work. I'm pretty sure I laughed and whined out loud a couple of times earning myself weird stares. lol

    Before is Hardin's heart

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    YES!! Because Before is sooooo amazing!

    What other book might you compare Before to and why?

    All this drama has no comparison

    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Shane East is the perfect Hardin. I remember when I first listened his voice in After We Collided—he didn’t sound like a 21 year old guy— but then I got used to his voice. I loved his narrations in the next installments of the series and ended up relating his voice and British accent to Hardin and only Hardin. I loved that he was back for this audio. Shane knew how to translate Hardin’s emotions, when he was angry, anxious, insecure and of course, when he was turned on by Tessa. My favorite parts were how he changed Hardin’s voice when he was comparing Tessa to Elizabeth from the book Pride and Prejudice. The short appearances of Jason Carpenter and Grace Grant in this audio were great. Jason did a great performance with Landon, Smith, and Zed. The change of inflexion for each character was remarkable.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The latest chapters!

    Any additional comments?

    BOOK & AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: 5+++ STARS

    People tend to say that retelling stories from the male POV are boring and a waste of time. I ASSURE YOU, BEFORE IS NOTHING LIKE THAT!

    Before Is Hardin’s Heart!

    Before is the book that was missing to make this series perfect. I loved it from beginning to end and despite my hesitation to suffer all the #Hessa drama all over again, it has made me want to re-read all the books one more time, because their love/hate/love story is simply amazing.

    Before has 3 parts: Before, During and After. It’s not just a retelling of book one, like many people was thinking—me included, it shows the missing parts of the previous books, the truth behind Zed, Molly and Steph’s actions, what happens with Christian & Co and Landon after all the drama—OK not everything about Landon, but at least there’s a hint of what will happen in his book *grinning like an idiot* And of course, the most important thing about this book: HARDIN! His feelings, his emotions, his intentions. Everything. I loved reading his POV in books #2, #3 and #4, but seriously, reading his ASSHOLE SIDE IN FULL FORCE was the best! I always enjoy reading how a man changes out of love, especially if it’s from his POV, so I was very happy reading this book.

    I really liked that this book wasn’t a “repetition” of After. The events that are featured in this book are just the right ones to show how really Hardin was feeling about Tessa before and after they met. I loved the introductions in each chapter. For me they were “excerpts” from the book Hardin wrote when he became an author. And of course, I love love love the latest chapters, the #Hessa ones. My heart was beating faster and my eyes were tearing while I was reading/listening more about their HEA. That was BEAUTIFUL.

    There’s something very important that needs to be said: Anna Todd’s writing style was perfect! She improved it so much since the last book she last wrote. I loved that this book was shorter than the others, and yet she put everything in it and it all was perfectly connected to the whole series.

    Shane East is the perfect Hardin. I remember when I first listened his voice in After We Collided—he didn’t sound like a 21 year old guy— but then I got used to his voice. I loved his narrations in the next installments of the series and ended up relating his voice and British accent to Hardin and only Hardin. I loved that he was back for this audio. Shane knew how to translate Hardin’s emotions, when he was angry, anxious, insecure and of course, when he was turned on by Tessa. My favorite parts were how he changed Hardin’s voice when he was comparing Tessa to Elizabeth from the book Pride and Prejudice. The short appearances of Jason Carpenter and Grace Grant in this audio were great. Jason did a great performance with Landon, Smith, and Zed. The change of inflexion for each character was remarkable.

    Note: I recommend to read this book AFTER reading the first four books of the series, otherwise, you’ll be spoiled and you’d miss all the drama.

    Pointless but still good...spoilers!!!

    I could have skipped this book and been just fine but it was good I guess. It's really repetitious and a boring point of view from Hardin, but none the less, I loved the others, so I had to finish out the series. If you want to play "find the inconsistencies" between details in the first four books and this one, you'll be pleased. Lots of things must have gotten mixed up in the editing process because small details from the other books are not consistent in this book. For one, when Tessa went to her friend's wedding in Chicago, the book prior said she did not ask Hardin to go with her as her date, she wanted to go alone, but that she met up with Hardin afterwards for dinner and sex at her hotel, and because she was only there for one night. This book said Hardin went as her date to her friend's wedding and she stayed with him for 3 days after it. It also says that Smith loves everything about Hardin except his tattoos, and that it's the only thing he argues about with Hardin, earlier in this book. Then later in this book, when they're reading from Smith's point of view, it says he loves Hardin's tattoos and wants to get them himself when he's older. Small details like that matter to true fans. Oh one more, the book prior says his daughter Emory is 6 when Tessa is pregnant with Audin. This book says they are only five years apart. Just saying...the details matter to true fans who have invested many hours listening to these books. I also think the movie was awful after reading these books. They made a "Disney" version of these books for theaters, meaning they toned it down way too much. And wth did they do with Hardin's character in the movie??? He's way too nice in it!!

    I wanted more

    I really liked pt. one and wish the book was more of that. Delving into Hardin's past. Telling us what we didnt kniew about the others. She didnt even mention what happened with Stephanie and Zed. Just a little excerpt read in less tham 2 mins.

    Part two was just retelling of the first book from Hardin ' s POV. But It was basically just retelling the dirty bits. Nothing that tells us about hardin during the in between times. Like the bet for example... they told us what led up to it but not what he did or how he handled it from his side.

    Pt 3 was just boring. It wasn't really "After" we have no resolution of the other characters. It was lacking.

    I guess that's my problem with the whole book it was just lacking. Mostly boring and not enough to keep me interested.

    I love Hessa!

    favorite book series to date! Sad it's over and hopeful the movie is even remotely as enjoyable as the books.

    Before (The After Series)

    It wasn't horrific, I just wish they went more in depth with his side of the story. The 50 Shades of Gray series also has the lead male's point of view series and its a whole book. I wish that Anna Todd went over Hardin's side on a lot of things. Tessa discovering the bet, Fighting Zed throughout, Trevor, The cabin in the woods, Tessa almost being raped, going back to her mom's, the whole Noah scenario, the move to Seattle, Tessa's dad. We did not get to read Hardin's POV for that, and that was a little disappointing. But if you want the lovey side of Hardin I guess, here you go. Just bits and pieces.

    Very hard to get through

    I decided to listen to this last book because there were a few things I wanted to get some closure on. Although I did get the closure and last details I was needing for the story of Hardin and Tessa to feel “complete,” most of the book just felt like filler. Almost every chapter felt unnecessary and boring. I loved this series so much but this last book wasn’t it. I also personally can’t stand the narrator for Hardin, his voice just doesn’t fit at all. The narrator for Tessa honestly did a better impression of Hardin than the man.

    New POV’s

    With the previous 4 books we’ve all fallen in love with #HESSA’s unlikely love story. But the good girl falling for the bad boy is so hackneyed and cliché that the reader is left wondering, ‘How many times can I read this same trope?’. And again, the only reason it works is that our star-crossed lovers both are especially good looking and have exceptional and sustained passion and prowess in bed.
    H revels in T’s virginal purity in the most nauseating and hypocritical way, being the scumbag that he’s always been; taciturn, sarcastic and degrading everyone in his path of emotional destruction. It’s pretty hard to have any sympathy for him until we hear his back story in his own words.
    And that’s what redeems the whole novel.
    For the most part, their story has been largely told from either Tessa’s or a neutral POV. Now it’s time for Hardin to explain himself. His sadistic and cold indifference. His violent outbursts. His choice of company or lack thereof.
    We want to believe he and his band of brooding, menacing companions are the way they are because of some terrifyingly bad breaks in life. And although this is to a good extent explored, lots of people have had it pretty damn tough and don’t resort to bullying and raging against everybody and everything all the time. But, there is still a lot to like in this author’s tale. The dialogue is realistic and the narrative flows so well that one can almost forgive all the recycled themes.
    Particularly rewarding is hearing first person from many of the auxiliary characters as well: Christian Vance, Landon and Smith. Even Zed has his say. (Wishing Zed could have had a larger part!)
    My greatest disappointments were the double standard perpetuated for males vs. females (eye roll); The repetition of the ludicrous fallacy of simultaneous organisms (pull-ease! just stop already with this unreasonable expectation! Men feel like failures if this doesn’t occur and women feel obligated to fake-fake-fake! How many times do the sex therapists have to explain this? Can’t believe this gaping flaw is penned by a female. Sheesh.); The idea that college is one big party with so little studying and cramming and late nights involved. If it was such a cinch everyone would do it; Later one has to suspend disbelief when H and T are living in separate cities for what 2 years(?) and maintaining exclusivity. (Serious side-eye here.)
    Other cringe worthy details are fairly minor, such as the propensity for Tessa to overdecorate and the oversized neon painting of their children In Their Bedroom (Hell No!)
    And OMG, Hardin allowing Disney sheets on his child’s bed or anything Disney in his house at all?! (Unlikely and not at all in keeping with his distain for anything pop-culture. BTW, I happen to agree with him 1,000% on this).
    Lastly, I’m not seeing Hardin as the ‘Man-Bun’ type. Long hair, OK……but an updo? I say Nope! Updon’t.

    Wieder ganz toll

    Ich fand auch diese Story wieder sehr spannend. Es war gut etwas mehr Hintergrund Info zu bekommen und die Personen besser kennen zu lernen. Ich bin immer noch total Team Hardin. Er ist toll.
