I don't know how I finished reading After Forever Ends in 2 freaking days, but I did. Well, maybe because I can't put it down, and because Oliver and Silvia are just so adorable that I can't afford to waste my time not reading about them.
After reading it, I was really contemplating about it. About Oliver and Silvia.. And I realized that both of them did have flaws, even if they weren't so obvious in the story because it is not the main point of it, but despite that, they loved and accepted each other wholeheartedly. In the middle of the story, I was wondering what tragic thing will happen to them, really, I was waiting, but none came. And that's the beauty of it.
I have never encountered such a perfect story, with no cheating and no trust issues and no barriers and no problems. Oliver and Silvia's relationship was so perfect that I envy them, and I wanted my own Ollie in the end. Maybe some of you will be wondering, and telling me that oh, that will be a boring story, with no dilemmas along the way, but no, it isn't boring. I love the natural flow of the story, and the realness of everything that is going on with it. They married when they were 17, and at first, I was like, "What the hell?" but then it dawned on me, that yes, somewhere in this world, this can happen and it already happened to some people out there!
I have to admit it though, that there were times when I was annoyed with Silvia, because I think that she can really be immature and a little too clingy for my taste. But in the case of Oliver, man, I can't really complain a thing about him. It's almost as if he is too good to be true and there's no way he could be real. He's goodlooking, patient, kind, witty... Oh, he is just everything! And... he believes in magic. ;)
I loved that Melodie Ramone showed the progress of the relationship of Silvia and Oliver. From the moment they met when they were teenagers and until their old age. I also saw the maturity in every character, especially with Alexander. I never thought that he would change his old ways, but I was wrong. He did great in the story and even exceeded my expectations.
After Forever Ends is a story of friendship, love, hope, faith, magic and death. You will really be drawn to it because of the genuineness of the characters and because the story just took its natural course. You'll laugh, you'll sigh, you'll cry and you'll learn. Learn to accept that there's nothing permanent in this world. That even though people come and go, some will always have a place in our hearts, even after forever ends.
