    reflections on

    After we read a novel or a book, see a movie, experience an event, usually we have some thoughts about it. How do we call the thoughts, afterthoutht or reflection? Are the following sentences acceptable?

    1. After relating these events above, I get deeply reflections on them.
    2. After reading the novel The Great Gatsby, I expressed my afterthoughts in front of my classmates.

    1. After relating these events above, I get deeply reflections reflective on (or "about") them. Not very natural, but OK.
    2. After reading the novel The Great Gatsby, I expressed my afterthoughts in front of
    (or "with") my classmates. OK

    Re: reflections on

    Is there a better phrasing of the two sentences?
