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 [STRIKE] reflections [/STRIKE] 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

Is there a better phrasing of the two sentences?
