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?

The story was beautifully written. It was like shooting with a friend listening to them tell a story. An easy listen. I couldn't stop listening! I would avoid people to keep from pausing the book!
I love mystery thrillers and suspense, ones that leave you guessing, but I also loves historical fiction with love stories entwined!
This book is so amazingly good it is hard to keep it to myself! Jojo is a magnificent writer and her characters are so well thought out and come alive from the pages. My heart physically ached in parts of this book, which no other book has ever been able to do, and I found myself crying and laughing out loud! Definetly worth the credit, but definitely worth the price too! I hope the movie does the book justice! Its become my favorites book! Jojo rocks!
It was a good adventure, a definite tear jerker... I didn't know what to expect when I downloaded this title, it was a pleasant surprise.
I thought the narrators did a wonderful job bringing this book to like on audio.
Yes, I took long rides in my car just to listen to the book a little bit longer.
I loved the way this book reminds the reader to live and dream. I have been a caregiver in my life for the young and disabled, it was always my mission to leave my patients better than I found them, if some comfort or need physical or emotional. I felt connected to the words and inspired by all I encountered on the journey of this story.
The first book I've read by this author. Good story teller! Nice narration! Sweet and entertaining! Nothing profound or life changing for me? Love story with good character development!
Of course I was saddened by the book, but it ended just as it should have. Very bittersweet.
The narrator for Lou's voice licked her lips a lot during her performance. Or did something with her mouth. It's not very noticeable if listening in a car, but if smacking and lip noises are a pet peeve, this will get on your nerves every now and then. She was a really great narrator, and I was able to get into the story really deeply... Except for when the lips smacked. Overall, very good.
This was a,wonderful novel, filled with many laughs, crying, and wonders! Her writing brings you right them little imagination needed.
