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?

Yes. Very great story, insightful and bittersweet.
When she goes to Switzerland.
Clark. . . she tries so hard.
You think you know what you would do - you don't!
Difficult to compare with anything else.
Voice inflections and British accent.
Powerful, yet delicate.
Very enjoyable even though a different ending would have made it better.
This book is very difficult to pause. I wanted to listen to it all the way through in one sitting. The book showed how people live differently depending on job skills, education, and money yet, no one is exempt from struggles and difficult decisions. Your sympathy was with both families. Being unable to make decisions for ourselves is difficult on occasion but for Will it was a constant way of life. Then, he made the most important decision of all.
Louisa put so much effort into making life better for Will no matter how uncooperative he was. He definitely was uncooperative. She never gave up.
Louisa Carter was terrific as the caregiver. I loved the way Will called her "Carter". Susan Lyons did an excellent job of portraying her as well as the other characters. She was spot on with Camilla, Nathan and Louisa's family. Susan brought out all emotions.
The Care Giver
I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook and wish I could find more like it. The storyline was not predictable at all and the readers were wonderful. It is a very heartwarming story.
Yes, truly enjoyable to listen to, has everything you want I a story. There is the right amount of quirkiness, humor, seriousness, touching moments and thoughts to ponder.
Similar to any Mauve Binchey book in that the author really makes you feel like you know the characters intimately.
The pivotal moment of change for Clark in the maze and the hospital in Switzerland and the wedding
The maze, the hospital and the reading of the letter
The performance of the narrator added to rather than took away from the story
This is one of the most touching books I've listened to s far.
Most of all I liked the fact that it dealt with a problem that iws often overlooked by both doctors and caregivers. I think that spousesw, caregivers and those in the medical pofession should read this book. I was touched also by the realistic portrayal of these sypathetic, generous characters.
No. I never wanted it to end,.
Love is not selfish!
The Choice. Both characters making life and death decisions.
the horse race
the main character, Clark, not sure of the spelling
The best book I have ever read
One of the best
Louisa, her quirky spirit. I liked Will also, great sense of humor
I love her accent
Both, mainly laugh at Louisa's dry wit and interaction with Will
Right at the top.
Ann Patchett's Bel Canto or State of Wonder. Barbara Kingsolver's Prodigal Summer
Seamless. I focused on the book; not on the narrator. She brings all characters alive.
