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?

    "Not a Stepford Romance Story...but Ugly Cry anyway"

    OMG! It's the Ugly Cry! Yep, that was me. I love a book that hits me in the feels. I suppose it's easier to write the happily ever after ending. But to write an ending that is controversial is much harder. This is NOT a Stepford Romance novel by any stretch. It's a story about seeing your potential, learning to step outside your comfort zone, and about making choices.... YOUR own difficult choices. This is all, of course, in the guise of a romance novel, sort of. The characters are well written, flaws and all, real and believable. I was never bored or irritated with characters and storyline. It progressed in a believable pace. I found myself listening at every opportunity. I couldn't get enough. Even though I knew how the story was going to end, I desperately wanted to know how it played out. I think the last hour and a half had me crying my eyes out............and thinking about it the next day, and still tearing up. If I can finish a book and continue to think about it long afterwards AND want to read it again? That, to me, deserves a 5/5 star rating.

    The story has moral implications. Should you participate in someones suicide? Does being quadriplegic/disabled make you less of a person and not deserving to live? The author does not advocate in either direction despite how the story ends. She skillfully presents both sides of the moral argument thru the characters. But in the end, she gives Will the choice, the ONLY choice HE has been able to make for himself since his accident. Whether you agree or not with his choice, it was his.

    "Worth the Hype"

    I am usually a tough critic when I read/listen to books that everyone loved. This is an exception. I literally could not stop listening until I finished. It's a wonderful book with great narration - A MUST LISTEN!!

    "Read this book"

    PLEASE read this book. It raises many questions about the right to die, and how all parties are affected. This book definitely ranks in my top ten list. Read it - you'll be glad you did.

    "Breathe Taking"

    This book is one of those which you might not find anywhere, the emotions the pain the feelings explained of a disabled man and his love are extraordinary. sometimes you do things which are not logical or discrete in the eyes of the world but you still do. I think once you start and get hang of it after few minutes, you might not want to get out of the car.

    "Great story brilliantly narrated - tear jerker!"

    Excellent writing sculpted into 3D by the narrators. Especially loved Alex Tregear - enjoyed her London accent & pacing for the Trina POV chapter & how well she adapted it to each characters' dialog. Will look for more of her work.
