Synopsis

A New York Times bestseller—with more than one million copies sold—by the author of One Plus One and The Girl You Left Behind

They had nothing in common until love gave them everything to lose . . .

Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life—steady boyfriend, close family—who has barely been farther afield than their tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex–Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life—big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel—and now he’s pretty sure he cannot live the way he is.

Will is acerbic, moody, bossy—but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected. When she learns that Will has shocking plans of his own, she sets out to show him that life is still worth living.

A Love Story for this generation, Me Before You brings to life two people who couldn’t have less in common—a heartbreakingly romantic novel that asks, What do you do when making the person you love happy also means breaking your own heart?

Me before you
October 2nd, 2015
This was a very good book. This was a very controversial topic about ones rights as a human being. Only we ourselves know what we can endure. I enjoyed the characters and the family life was spot on. There is some sad parts have your Kleenex ready.

No spoliers. It is just simply a fascinating book that has realistic components that makes you understand their world better. It is very easy to read. Stayed up late for 2 nights trying to get what is next. It is definitely a 'reread' type of book.

Love this story! The characters are so interesting and fun and ordinary but the journey is not ordinary. I laughed, cried, cheered, and was unable to set it down. The protagonist's trek is one you won't want to miss. A novel I have read 3 times to relive the experience. Loved it!

Makes you think and feel
April 20th, 2015
I loved the different perspectives in this book. The characters were quirky and real. I've thought about this book for months after I read it, the author was able to transport me into a different perspective that I had never thought about before and has changed the way I see people in their varying situations. This is one of the books I always recommend to others. It feels like the emotions and everything that's going on in this book are an example of what is happening to people in little tiny clusters all over the world. Me Before You gives different perspectives on how we each deal with pain, and disappointments, and love. It also brings up questions of our family; how we relate to our brothers and sisters and parents and shows how perspective can determine how we treat other people. Also I took away the thought that if we do make assumptions about people we are not necessarily actually seeing reality. I felt like this book caught me by surprise, I wasn't expecting it to have such an impact on my thinking Be careful though you could get hooked on Jojo...

a beautiful, sad love story but the romance only kind of started to develop toward the end of the book. The characters are interesting and endearing. I wish the ending to be different, though. I finished this book within 2 days which is fast as I normally take a week to finish a book. The story gripped me right from the start and didn't like go. I find kind of sad after reading the book.

This was an easy book to get into, with a lead character it was easy to like. Louisa Clark is looking for a job after the cafe she'd worked at for 7 years closed. She becomes the companion to a quadriplegic man. At first he's bitter and sarcastic, but after a couple of weeks he begins to loosen up. Louisa learns that he's planning to go to Switzerland and die at a clinic there after six months and she is determined to change his mind.

This is an excellent read for all different types of readers. It gives a good perspective on the life of a disabled young man that lost it all. It makes you think deeply about yourself and the meaning of quality of life. It also makes you think about what a disabled person has to face daily including the stigma from other people and how difficult it could be to plan a fun day out. Its a wonderful heart felt novel that will make you think about your own life and what really is important.

This story blew me away. The title was enigmatic with absolutely no indication of what was to come. I couldn't read it fast enough. It was that good. Each chapter left me anticipating the next with relish. I loved each character, so lovingly and carefully constructed that they came alive on the page and became my friends. Dear friends that I cheered on, cried with, and loved. Wonderful.
