Me Before You: A Novel

Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life - steady boyfriend, close family - who has never been farther afield than her 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.

Publisher's Summary

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 never been farther afield than her 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?

    "Meh"

    I didn't care for the narrator and the changing of voices used for different characters.

    Also if the story said "I swallowed" or "he swallowed" one more time I may have thrown my device out the window. Someone should count how many times that phase is written in this book and put it on a warning label.

    "Decent story. Worth a read."

    The readers were good, did not distract from the content.

    The author did a good job describing, this really brought the story to life for me.

    I found it difficult to really like Louisa Clark however I did appreciate the transformation of her character from beginning to end.

    "Thought provoking"

    The narrators were brilliant. Jojo Moyes does an incredible job of looking into a controversial topic, and making us really think about it. Wonderful characters experiencing true emotions!

    "Loved this listen!"
    What made the experience of listening to Me Before You the most enjoyable?

    I loved the main character, Louisa. She is quirky, funny, and extremely likeable. Louisa is so determined to help Will, and it really translates. You relate to her success and her failures.


    What did you like best about this story?

    A very unique story that kept my attention the whole time!


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The main narrator did an awesome job, and I loved listening to her!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Will and Louisa's relationship was very special. It was sad to think of Will's situation, going from a man of adventure and dare, to a man dependent on everyone around him. It really makes you think about your own life, and to not take advantage of what you are given!


    Any additional comments?

    My favorite audible listen so far!

    What did you like best about this story?

    Great writing! I cried, I laughed, I felt... It's been a while since I read such an intricate and delicate love story that made me question "What would I do?" every step of the way.

    "Very pleasantly surprised!"

    My book club picked the book and I have to say I was reluctant to read it since I don't like sad, sappy, stories. I was pleasantly surprised it wasn't, and although I did cry I also smiled and laughed. It was a journey of growth, intimacy, honesty, and unconditional love.

    Story
    "One sided."

    The fact that this is well written hides the fact that this is a bunch of propaganda. And it is just out and out wrong! We have a young man, who is very smart, very articulate who is unhappy because he can't play anymore. He ignores the important things of life and is more concerned that he can't mountain climb any more. And we are expected to feel sorry for him.
