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.

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
    "Not my favorite listen, very contrived."
    What disappointed you about Me Before You?

    Very depressing and not well written.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Tattoos On The Heart


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Narrator was great considering the material.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Me Before You?

    So much emotional abuse from her own family.


    Any additional comments?

    Very juvenile and trying way too hard to tug the heartstrings made it unbelievable.

    "Great book and well narrated"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Me Before You to be better than the print version?

    n/a. I did not read the print version


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    You before me. I kept thinking the title should be reversed

    "I didn't want this story to end."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is such a great book. It has all the makings of a great romance without being predictable.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    The voice of the narrator is also the main character, Louisa. This is the perfect marriage. The narrators voice brings Louisa to life.

    "Bittersweet Story"

    This is a book I very much enjoyed reading! I loved listening to the English accents on the audiobook. Great for bookclub! There were some events that I would have loved to discuss. Looking forward to seeing the movie!

    "Something to make you think"

    Wow what would I do? How would I react, respond? Good book to let yourself get caught up in to remind myself that my life isn't as complicated at all.
