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 fact that this is well written hides the fact that this is a bunch of propaganda. And it is just out and out wrong! We have a young man, who is very smart, very articulate who is unhappy because he can't play anymore. He ignores the important things of life and is more concerned that he can't mountain climb any more. And we are expected to feel sorry for him.
A book that will keep challenging your beliefs, captivating your attention, and live in your mind and heart for years to come. Watch out for your heart-- it will break it. In all the beautiful ways...
i love to listen! i think we all do when you subscribe. But is like a comfort to have stories read, it relaxes me, and sets me a ease.
i not only will listen to this book, but i actually bought the hard cover. It is a keeper
The setting of this book is in England and the accent was spot on
Louisa .. love her!
You will cry, you will laugh, you will NOT forget this book
What a lovely story, and so beautifully told. I would recommend it in a heartbeat! It really makes you think, while also incredibly emotional.
Audio books are the best :)
I appreciated this book for its humor and fresh take on a romance story. It was much less focused on the romance part (until the end that is) and more so a story of the main character finding herself.
Well written and performed, not hugely exciting but worth the read.
This was a Throughly interesting story of relationships. Not predictable or sappy, but very warmly human. Nice characters, well developed.
