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?

    "Poignant story, well written and read!"

    This was a Throughly interesting story of relationships. Not predictable or sappy, but very warmly human. Nice characters, well developed.

    "Beautiful journey"

    A little slow to start, but captivating, heart breaking and beautiful once I got in to it. Would highly recommend.

    "This is a stupid love story."

    Narration was fine. The story was mostly fine but I was expecting a love story instead of this garbage story.

    "Better than I thought"

    I almost gave up on this audiobook. Not because there was anything wrong with the story or the narrators, I just don't think this is my type of book. I kept thinking I should just borrow my mother's hardback copy of it, to speed up the reading process. After an hour of running spent listening to the trip to the horseracing... I was ready to give up. Then I gave it one more chance, and now that I've finished it have to admit the book and the narrators were good. So good that I actually don't regret spending almost fifteen hours listening to it. If I had read the book instead of listening to it, I probably would have finished it in a day or two, skipping the embarrassing parts. And by now I would have forgotten most of the story. And while I'm definitely not picking up another book of this genre anytime soon, I think the story was good and the narrators added to it.

    It's a good book, one of the few books of the "chick lit" genre I've actually liked. Any complaints I have of a slow pace and predictable story is probably caused by my preference for other genres and not by any fault of the book itself...

    "stunning"

    i am amazed by the way this book captures our attention and how this story about the daily life between two people became quickly a part of my life. i wanted to get to know this people. ieven though i was sad about the ending, there is also a lot of hope and understanding there. i loved it and was deeply moved by it.

    "Great read!"

    I loved this audible book. The reader was great! I loved the story; I cried throughout the book and especially at the end. I wish that Will could have lived and they could have had a life together, but it wasn't meant to be. Will allowed Miss Clark opportunities she would have never reached with the ending!

    "A wonderful listening experience"

    Excellent narration by the primary character, from whose point of view the majority of the book is read. Those few chapters that were from a different point of view were a bit jarring as male readers attempted to emulate female dialog within the chapter (hence the 4 star on performance).

    Having said this, I simply loved this book and the entire listening experience. It was my first experience with Jojo Moyes and I will definitely be looking to more of her novels. I fell in love with Louisa and found every excuse to keep listening. My definition of a good book is one that has depth of character... people you can care for and empathize with... people that come alive. This book had all of this and was a very sweet love story that made me feel good and rethink the world of spinal cord injuries.

    "emotional"

    I had read the book first, so I knew the storyline. It's read wonderfully. I'm emotional and cried many times..but I cried while reading, also.

    I was sad when it was over.
