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?

A reminder to be open to life and all it has to offer. The book is hard on the heart but worth the listen. Made my long commute blissfully and yet heart wrenchingly better.
Single mom of two active boys. My guilty pleasure is listening to audio books on road trips and to work or soccer practice. Love Chick Lit!
This book was beautifully written, with just the right amount of . . . everything!
The story was well-written and realistic. It touched every emotion. The ending was perfect!
This book took me on an unexpectedly exceptional journey. It left me tearing with delight and a deep appreciation for life. It took me on an emotional roller coaster. Committed to all the characters and their perspectives. Enjoyed from beginning to end!
Narrator was very good.
A wonderful story. I was sorry when it was over Well written and thought provoking
I would love to read another book by this author
It took me a year to finish this...the last few chapters are much better than the majority of the books. I am not a big fan of the main narrator; I like the one who narrates her sister's part better.
Loved it! Well worth the read or listen. I would recommend this book to every one. Very sad but you will smile at the end.
