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?

I read this book because my bookclub had picked it. My expectations were low because I rarely like the books they pick. Surprisingly I really liked this book. It is thoughtful and has great character development.
I initially thought that this would be an updated version of Jane Eyre (which I loved). It was and it wasn't. It is a powerful love story and so much more. It's hard to write a review without giving anything away. If you are looking for a love story that takes love to the next level, then this is a must read.
Well written, funny, sad and very thought provoking .
Loved the characters especially the young woman, Louisa. To see it through her eyes was wonderful . Highly recommend this book
I got this audio book because I wanted to "read" the book before watching the movie. I knew only bits of the story and never imagined how deeply enthralled I would become!
The voices were easily discernable throughout the entire book. the inflections of emotions were done perfectly as well.
Great story! I laughed out loud and caught myself unable to turn off the story at times. My heart hurts after finishing this book.
I Love this Story! I Love This Book! It's captivating , moving, funny, and sad at times. this book keeps your interest sparked with anticipation of what happens next! I love the Narrator for Louisa! I find myself speaking like her even when I'm not listening to the book! I can hardly wait to finish the book so I can watch the movie, that was based on the book!
The moment Will and Louisa discovered they had feelings for one another!
The whole dialogue. I'm not English, therefore I wouldn't have read as an English person. That would not give me the mental picture I'm able to grasp by just listening!
Well it's pretty hard to say since there is a movie already made; Bugger! Maybe, Timeless Moments With You!
I Love This Story! I Love This Book!
