Definitely - and have. This was so rich and interesting. It made me laugh out loud and cry too. I couldn't wait to see how it was going to wrap up. Now I'm listening again and still loving it.
The characters and their interactions.
The main narrator was amazingly good. This is a British novel and so is the narrator.
Don't think you can describe in one line!
Do yourself a favor and listen to this book. You will never be sorry. I haven't been this moved since The Help. Thanks to the author for giving us this treasure.
well-written, intimate, touching
I've never read a book like this, it's very unique to me
There wasn't a particular favorite, they were all different
Definitely Will. It's incredible how at first he was unreachable and how throughout the book he tried his hardest to open up to love despite his difficult circumstances and restrictions
I suggest you read this book only when you have the right time to devote the attention it deserves, it touches you in a profound way.
Im so glad I read others' reviews and picked this one up myself. I thoroughly enjoyed it, despite (because of?) its grim storyline. No punches are pulled here, and I appreciated that.
The readers of this book made it come alive. It seemed like I was listening to actors in a movie. They read with every emotion possible and they made me feel like it was that much more real.
The ending. I hoped for it to end differently, but once the ending finally came around I couldn't think of a better way to bring this wonderful piece to a close.
They bring the story to life!
Yes, and on multiple occasions I tried.
This is a beautiful story of unexpected love. This book brought me to tears, by the end of the book I was sobbing, but not because of the sad events taking place, but because of the undeniable love and compassion between the characters. I would recommend this book to anyone, but especially those who love a good tearjerker - this isn't just a good one though, it's a great one.
Jojo's "The Horse Dancer" was superb, her second book nearly as good, but this one at least ties Horse Dancer as one of the best books I've heard over the last 8-10 years. Hope she puts out several a year! Tried to buy Horse Dancer in print but it wasn't available in the US last Christmas. A writer of her caliber should be available in all media anywhere!
If you've ever cared for someone who's mobility is or has been limited, her extensive research will inspire you.
Beautifully read, love the English phrases that don't exactly translate into "American."
A thought-provoking treatise on life, day to day living, the goals and activities that keep us focused. Me Before You prompts questions about your own life, gratitude for your physical being and how you're living, regardless of your means.
Don't miss it! Hated for it to end, hated to put it down.
The way the author made you care about the characters (Will Traynor and Louisa Clarke) grew, as the story and the relationship and the drama did.
I can't think of another book that affected me as deeply as this one did (and not always in an enjoyable way). I can not say I am sorry I read it (although I did last night, when I finished it). I was ready to thrown my iphone against the wall.
Most of the book was Louisa. There was only a small part from Will's point of view. I was alternately in awe, irritated, admiring and hated all of the characters.
Some of the sections were so true to life (squabbling between siblings; a family that has lived too long together) that I found the narrator too slow and I sped it up. I never skipped parts - just increased the speed. I had not heard anything or read much about the book ahead of time. I recommend this, although it makes many parts of the book more wrenching. A lot of people talk about books that make you cry or make you dream about the characters, but, to be honest, it has rarely happened to me. This one does. Do not read this if you are depressed or have a seriously ill son or lover.
I already knew how the book would end from reading other reviews, but it really didn't matter. This was such a captivating story! I really enjoyed the primary narrator and would've given her 5 stars, but I didn't care much for the others. I don't think they added anything to the audiobook. The story itself was great and I'm already half way through Jojo's next book, The Girl You Left Behind. So far, I'm enjoying it just as much.
The story is so heart wrenching......such a beautiful story of a very unlikely love. I am not normally a fan of a story that makes me cry (and this one made me sob), but I will be listening to this again and again. The narration is outstanding, as is the story itself. This deserves more than 5 stars. I am now a huge fan of Jojo Moyes. This was such a well worth spend of my credit!
This was a very moving story....
Toward the end when Will made his plans to Clark known and
asked her to be with him for his passing.
As always, narrators add so much to a story......prefer over book reading.
Again, toward the end when Will puts Clark off......
I don't want this story to end.
Music and book connosieur
Loved this book. This is one of those rare books that really just pulls you in. Very thought provoking and lovely. Don't miss.
