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?

    "Wonderful listen!"

    Susan Lyons really made me love Louisa, and completely drew me into the story! Since I listened on a long road trip, some of the other voices were hard to hear when their volume went low or to whispers. Courageous ending.

    "Amazing."

    This was a great book! And all of the narrators were wonderful. A waning though, do not listen in public if you don't like to be seen crying!

    "Page turner"

    There are so many things going through my mind as this book has been a journey......and as this book, while enthrall ink and entertaining, has so much in the form of layers. Buy it. You won't regret it, and maybe forget it, either?

    "Emotionally engaging"

    As a physical therapist, I very much enjoyed this viewpoint of one who has been handicapped and was fully, emotionally engaged. I know that I get much back from those I serve in my profession.

    "Kept me guessing"

    Really liked this book. I had a hard time wrestling with how I wanted it to end, making it delightfully unpredictable.

    Story
    "Lovely Tale That Makes You Think"
    If you could sum up Me Before You in three words, what would they be?

    Non-traditional Love Story


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was very thought provoking romance, I kept asking myself, "what would I do?" "how would I feel" ... it isn't a "heavy" book in that way, in fact it is very approachable, but I was hooked by the story and was crying for all the right reasons at the end.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    besides the ending, I would have to say the maze


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a romantic, I highly recommend it, feel like Jojo Moyes perfectly captured and described some of love's purest/truest moments. I wouldn't call this a traditional love story, but I would call it a true love story...love for someone, love for friends, love for family...this has definitely been a story that has lingered in my mind after reading it. Very touching.

    I love audible books, although I've been a voracious reader before I joined Audible. I long for really good books. I've had a few.

    "JUST PLAIN WONDERFUL WRITING"

    Many of the reviews I read of this book said things like, 'sweet'. They were correct. I loved this sweet story because I cared about each and every character. That is unusual and I'm so glad I took the leap to download it. Highly recommended lovely, sweet story. I couldn't stop sobbing.
