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 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.
I did not like the ending of this book and I was hoping that he would live and they would live happily ever after! As a caregiver in a healthcare facility, I can relate to this book. We put so much time and compassion into our patients and the main character, Lou portrays this well except for the part when she gets drunk when Will is under her care. Being a caregiver teaches you a lot of things about yourself and others and the author does a good job of showing this through Lou.
This was so well written that I listened with my eyes closed and I was there in Louisa's place. I felt the same things that she felt and loved as she.
Magnificent Obsession. MRB
I enjoyed listening. The narrator is really good. My daughter would laugh when she heard me respond to the book with a laugh or a sigh of exasperation at how mean Lou's family is.
This is a love story of all times. I couldn't stop listening and I was transported to their world. So real and full of emotions.
Their vacation was my favorite part of the story.
Love has no bounds...
A must read for all romantics.
