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?

    "This book…"

    Honestly this book has to be one of my favorites. It reminds me of an essay I wrote in high school, about this very subject. It was a bit of nostalgia.

    "Thought-Provoking Read (with a love story too)"

    I'm going to think about this book for a long time. I predicted many of the major plot points, but that didn't bother me too much. I appreciated most of the characters as well as the dialogue and the love story aspect. Overall, I really liked the book. "Liked" doesn't feel like the most appropriate word though. There are sad parts, but I mostly smiled and laughed while listening to the audiobook.

    The reason I'll think about the book for a long time is because it delves into accessibly issues and rights of people with disabilities. It's the type of book I want to discuss with my disability studies classmates from a year ago. I'm not going to go into it much for fear of giving things away, but the book is rich with (very important) material and questions.

    A note about the narrator/POV: The book is mainly narrated by Louisa, but there are a few chapters from the perspectives of other characters. It was great, but I'm not sure why Will wasn't one of those characters. We only get his voice through other people. I will say that I love how Moyes involved an online chat room so that Will wasn't the only representation of a person with quadriplegia.

    The audiobook narrators were all wonderful. The main narrator gave each character a pretty distinct voice, and the other narrators did the same. I definitely enjoyed the listening experience.

    Anyway, it's a thought-provoking, beautiful, and challenging novel, and I do recommend it.

    "Don't listen without tissues"

    This book was so good. I laughed, I cried, oh how I cried. Moyes brings all emotions to life and fills your heart to the brink while breaking it at the same time.

    I would recommend this to a friend because of the skill of the writer. It is tender, romantic and keeps ones interest at the same time. I could not stop listening

    "Hmm"

    I could feel the characters...feel the suspense...but it wasn't as much of an emotional roller coaster as I was expecting.
