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?

    Story
    "predictable, frustrating, riveting "

    I was frustrated for the majority of this book. Frustrated by the fact that class struggles were only discussed in passing, how I knew exactly what was going to happen in the end, and the number of shitty dudes that surrounded the main character. I found it hard to empathize with Will, who, when he wasn't mansplaining, belittled disabled people and was super ableist. What I really wanted to do was jump into the book and provide Lou with a consistent, reliable, and informed ear that could help her deal with her trauma in a constructive way, because her support system was the freakin pits.
    With all that said, I devoured the book quickly, I think partly due to a good cast of voice actors. If one can stomach misogynistic characters (including the women), predictable plotlines, and rather slow moving action, you could probably tolerate the book. I wont be reading or listening to the sequel though, not after that cliche ending.
    Happy listening

    "Good story, strange narration"

    Although I did enjoy the overall story, my enjoyment was stifled a bit the narration. I would have preferred a single narrator to preserve the flow of the book.

    "Beautiful and Thought Provoking"

    Loved how well this author immerses you in the book's interesting and complicated characters. I saw things from very different perspectives and the story was both beautiful and thought provoking.

    "Shattering"

    This book absolutely shattered me heart. Beware when you decide to read/listen to it. It's a wonderful story about love and loss and you should definitely consider it, just know it comes with a full side of ugly crying as well.
