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.

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?

    "You will not be disappointed!"

    I inhaled the contents of this story, and when the last chapter arrived, I found myself not wanting it to end. You become quite attached to the characters,& the author forces you to examine what it means to really unconditionally love someone.

    "Realistic Love Story"
    Where does Me Before You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's one of the Best romances I have listen to thus far.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Me Before You?

    One of favorite moments was when Will visits Lou's home for dinner and meets her boyfriend, Patrick and her family. I really enjoyed the dynamic the author was able to create between Will's character and the family. I could feel the shift from the family's view of Will at the beginning of the dinner to then how it changes towards the later when they just see him for what he is, a wonderful young man.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    All of the narrators did an outstanding job on this book; no complaints on my end!


    Who was the most memorable character of Me Before You and why?

    Lou was an outstanding protagonist as she brought so much complexity to the book. I loved how her personality had many layers and yet she continued to surprise herself all while gaining a love for Will which Ultimately enabled her to continue to grow as a person.

    I'm typically a murder, suspense, & thriller type reader; however, I'm expanding, exploring, & expanding my interests.

    Story
    "Go Ahead, Read This Book!"
    If you could sum up Me Before You in three words, what would they be?

    Really good book


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Me Before You?

    The gradual transformation of Lou. I didn't anticipate the direction in which her character ended in.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've become more and more taken with the Australian voices/books. I thought the performance was really good.


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

    There were several moments within the book that moved me, but overall it was the gradual growth of the characters and their directions that moved me.

    "The sweetest story"

    A simply beautiful story. Laugh. Cry. Smile. Scold each character - all the while, never being able to put the book down! This story reminds us to never write anyone off as they could soon become the only person you want to spend your time with. I will read this story again and again.

    Story
    "I couldn't stop listening"

    Some books affect you even after you have finished the book. This is one. Will had been a very physically active man until the accident that left him paralyzed. Louella Clark has lost her safe job in a cafe. Family circumstances are such that she must find another job so she applies to be Will's companion. With absolutely no experience she gets the job. A friendship develops but time is running out. I have never been so touched by a book as with Me Before You. It will bring you to tears.

    "Breathtaking living story!!"

    No words to describe the intimacy I had with each character and every word . Highly recommend it to anyone. You won't regret it!! Thank you Jojo Moyes for sharing this heartfelt creative work that touched my being. As Will would have said to Clark, "Oh come on now Clark, stop it" (her being so emotional and all).. But it's true I simply enjoy and love every moment of it
