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?

    "Characters carry the story"

    I really enjoyed Moyes writing, and this was a refreshingly different novel with a number of interesting characters. I laughed, I cried, etc. The occasional change in point of view was a bit jarring, and I didn't love the ending. There were a few more F words than I like, but all in all a good listen.

    "Loved and hated this story!!"

    I didn't think I would like this much, but ended up driving to appointments on the highway in tears (happy & sad)!!! Never wanted to "put it down." Great writing, great characters, great story, lots of tears - good and sad! But overall, I will find others by this author.

    "Loved!"

    I couldn't stop listening. This was beautifully written and I will most likely read all the rest of this authors books. Seamless story from beginning to end.

    "A lovely listen"

    Witty, charming, a joy of a listen. The title doesn't do it justice. I found Me Before You captivating from the very beginning and kept my interest throughout.

    "Powerful story"

    I didn't know what to expect but was curious because I am a disabled veteran. I'm not paralyzed but have chronic pain. I think the author explores a topic seldom broached but needs to be. "What is quality of life?" Just as meeting some people change our lives, reading some books change our lives also. I am very glad I found this book.

    "Such a good read."

    This book is neither simple nor complex. It's a beautiful story but simply worth reading. I'm sure glad I did.

    "Very profound. Thought provoking."

    I balled the last hour! I fell in love with him too! So many different ways you can analyze this. Excellent character development. I will be thinking on it for quite some time.
