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?

    Story
    "Reality will force you to grow up"

    Teenage angst meets reality. Time to grow up and to grow as a person. Jojo Moyes has written about this subject but brought to it something different and unusual. I would just like to say I hope that people in the hero's predicament are not treated like he was any more. If so we all need to take a look to ourselves and decide to make the world a better place for people with disabilities. They have enough difficulty just being alive. We can all learn from this book.

    "Touching storyline"

    Characters are well developed. The author made me feel connected to each of the characters. I gave it four stars because the action of to story plot was shallow Nd predictable.

    Story
    "An amazing story! Had a hard time putting it down"
    Where does Me Before You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was the first book I have read by this author and it was amazing. Listening to the narrator was perfect and the accent matched the region they were in and keep me wanting to get more and more of the story. It was very hard to put down and not a book that I knew exactly what was going to happen; it keep you interested. I felt like I knew the characters so well with the authors descriptions. I would definitely recommend this book and I will read more from this author.


    What three words best describe the narrators’s performance?

    Appropriate for the geographic region of the book. Easy to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    A definite read, I loved the book!

    Story
    "Chic Flick Novel"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Depends. Not for someone who likes meat. More of a dessert novel.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jojo Moyes? Why or why not?

    Yes, as it was not a terrible book, just not for me at this time.


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

    I liked the mother, as she was obviously overwhelmed with her son's physical and mental handicaps. She was so strong and capable at work but once she entered home, she was a mom.


    Do you think Me Before You needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I was not impressed with the main characters enough to want to read of their future life together or not. The lives of the physically damaged veterans who rise above all of their challenges make the protagonist of this book seem very self centered. I can only hope somewhere he finds the courage to dig in and contribute instead of whine.


    Any additional comments?

    In the beginning of the story Lou drove me a tad crazy by being so young and somewhat without common sense. As the book moved on I applauded her desire to make a difference. Actually did not listen to the whole book. I skipped ahead to hear the conclusion.

    "Great story, perfect narrator!"

    Thus is the second Jojo Moyes book I have read. I enjoy the voices she gives her characters and the changes they make throughout the story. This book was sweet, heartbreaking, funny, and thoughtful. Read it!

    I'm so glad I didn't read the end of the book like I usually do when I start a book. What a great book! My first time reading Jojo Moyes, I can't wait to read more!
