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?

This must be one of my top 3 favorites.
Eat, Pray, Love because it is told from a female's perspective.
It will leave you feeling happy and grateful!
This is one of those books that stays with you. Opening your eyes to that new point of view and feeling like an old friend.
And it is a beautiful love story!!!
Bring your hankie!
I really liked it! I'm glad they are making a movie. First three chapters were a bit hard to get through, because her life really was very mundane. Push through it.
Moyes is really good at finding the right details that help you understand. The plot twists are believable and there is a bitter-sweet, convincing closure that leaves you thoughtfully contemplating your own life. I even found myself describing events in my own life in the same style as Lou would. Funny.
I may well listen to this book again. I felt good while reading it.
The Seven People You Meet in Heaven because both gave me pause about the importance and yet fleeting nature of our life on Earth.
At the wedding where she essentially falls in love.
Love is not enough.
