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 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.
I was a little skeptical about it, but once I started listening I couldn't stop. I loved it and will be definitely reading "me after you".
I loved this book. I experienced so many feelings and was surprised at how sad I felt at times, surprised, hopeful, excited etc I didn't realize that there's a movie coming out soon based on this book when I started reading it and now I'm debating going. Overall such a great book!!! Loved every bit of it
This book at first seemed to be a pretty simple story that I thought would be potentially not super interesting for someone who was already fairly familiar with the right to die debates. It was not as simple as it first seemed, however. The story took a fairly abstract debate and made it real; it brought the characters to life and made me feel rather than just think. It is worth reading and worth being open to all the perspectives brought up surrounding such a challenging yet very relevant debate.
