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?

This book left me emotionally drained. It's so well written that made everything completely believable. I felt so invested I these characters from the start.
This is an account for my wife Michelle and I.
I would say this is worth the read.
I feel like this is a journey that I myself have never traveled and I am wondering if I could.
Retired RN. Listen to about 4 audiobooks a month. "The only important thing in a book is the meaning that it has for you" & a good narrator.
I first listened to this book two years ago. I read it again now to refresh my brain for my bookclub and the movie that is soon coming out. Such a wonderful, wonderful book. About two people who gave so much to each other. One I will cherish forever. "Live boldly. Push yourself. Don't settle. Wear those striped leggings with pride....Knowing you still have possibilities is a luxury." #JoJosBest
Like some of the others, I wasn't looking for a love story but this one really pulls you in after a few chapters. It's easy to get invested in these characters. A great listen!
It was an enjoyable book, you hope for a certain ending but there were times when I thought the details were excessive and it could've wrapped up sooner. It was a long audiobook to listen to, and sometimes hard to follow which character was speaking the dialogue (downfall of audio books) regardless of with performer was reading the part. I listened to it in preparation of seeing the movie coming out soon.
