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?

Will he knew what he wanted and went after it.
it was ok
name fits perfect
better than I thought It was going to be.... I loved it.
The story was very interesting and captivating, but I found the narrator's voice extremely grating. My best friend is British, so I didn't have trouble understanding the accent. It was simply hard to believe the narrator was speaking for a young, 26 year old bubbly girl.
Global citizen. Loves reading, but most of all traveling. If I cannot travel today, let me sit in sunshine and nature with a good book!
Although part of the book was disappointing towards the end, I thoroughly enjoyed the writing and narration. So much in fact that although I was an hour shy of finishing, I saw the current movie and still very much enjoyed the last hour. The rich detail of writing was very good. Overall the book was hands down better than the movie!
