July book club: After the End

 after the end july book club

Max and Pip are the strongest couple you know. Only now they're facing the most important decision of their lives - and they don't agree. After the End is the new novel by the Sunday Times bestselling author, Clare Mackintosh and it's our pick for this month's book club. 

As the consequences of an impossible choice threaten to devastate both Max and Pip, nothing will ever be the same again. But anything can happen after the end...

Combining the depth of emotion that captivated readers of Me Before You, the structural ambition of Life After Life and the impossible choice at the heart of My Sister's Keeper, Mackintosh's powerful new novel contains her winning formula of compelling characters and a page-turning plot.


Praise for After the End:

‘Clare Mackintosh just broke my heart, and then she mended it again. One of the most moving stories I have ever read. It’s perfect’ - Joanna Cannon

‘An exquisite novel - tragic, clever, life-affirming and original all at once’ - Catherine Isaac

‘I read After the End in one emotional sitting. It's beautiful, original, moving and thought-provoking’ - Sinead Crowley


With over two million copies of her books sold worldwide, Clare Mackintosh is the multi-award-winning author of I Let You Go, I See You and Let Me Lie. Clare's novels have been translated into over thirty-five languages and all three novels were selected for the Richard and Judy Book club.

Clare is also patron of the Silver Star Society, a charity based at the John Radcliffe hospital in Oxford, which supports parents experiencing high-risk or difficult pregnancies. She lives in North Wales with her husband and their three children.

After the End is published by Little Brown and is available online and from all good booksellers. If you've entered the draw to receive a copy of the book then you'll need to leave your questions and feedback for Clare on this thread by the end of July.
