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?

    "Incredible and gripping"

    One of the most incredible stories I have ever read. Brought to life my the narrator with such enthusiasm that I felt enveloped in the story as if I were living it myself. Humor as comic relief-well placed and appropriate. Going to see the movie...but I am sure it will pale in comparison!!

    love to listen to excellently written, superb penmanship especially when the story is a page turner and the narrator is extremely gifted.

    "Could not put bit down."

    A well written and well told story about the gift of life or its curse, about love and irony. Hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.

    "Can't Wait to See the Movie Version!"

    I loved this story. I was engrossed from nearly the beginning. Extremely well-narrated. Hooked all the way through. Captures the realities of being a disabled person in an able-bodied world.

    "Beautiful"

    Do yourself a favor and just read this exceptional book. The night I began listening I literally could not put it down. I listened thru the night until 7:00 am! It pulls you in and just doesn't let you go until the story is over. I am not too much of a crier when it comes to books and movies but I sobbed while listening to Will and Lou's story. I think about them like they're old friends and I will miss them.

    "BitterSweet"

    This is a very unique romance that leaves you wanting more!! The ending chapter has you on the edge of your seat and for me also in tears! Both happy and sad but totally makes you look at things differently!!

    "Good solid romance"

    I enjoyed this story. I am not one who seeks out weepy romances often, but I have to say, this was satisfying.

    I really admire the ending. I can't say anything about it without spoiling the novel, but JoJo Moyes did a good solid job here.

    The characters were decently developed. I didn't like how limited the universes were for any of them, but then again that was part of the point.

    I don't think Moyes is a great writer. Everything was to straight forward. A good writer in my opinion would not have relied so much on 1 or 2 ways of telling a story and then kept pounding away at it. A good writer would have broken things apart more and given more than 1 note that lasted the duration of the story.

    I'm sure Im being a harder critic than this book deserves. For what it is, its very well done. I'm sure if you are into romances, this will be just the ticket for you.

    Have you read Gone With the Wind? This is a book I would recommend over Me Before You.

    Story
    "Can't wait to see the movie!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    ABSOLUTELY!! This was a thoroughly engrossing story narrated by very talented performers.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the character development and the relationships that unfolded throughout the book. This author allowed us a very personal and authentic journey inside the thoughts and emotions of the main character, Louisa and then, after allowing the other characters to be known from her perspective, we were allowed snapshots inside other supporting characters thoughts.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    All new to me . . . .thought they were all great.


    Who was the most memorable character of Me Before You and why?

    Louisa Clark, hands down. Why? Because we rode every crazy twist, turn, rise, and plunge of her emotional roller coaster journey right along with her.


    Any additional comments?

    Just read this one . . . . it is definitely credit-worthy!
