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?

    "couldn't control tears."

    Finally finished. Actually I never go for stories which has sad endings. But I saw trailer nd thought of reading book. Sry listening the book and trust me it's worth. I never like to cry at the end of the story because part of always wish that let everything will be alright. Though they are fictional characters. I somehow get attached to them when I read. When I started I thought Lou will convince Will but then she couldn't. She got angry and so am I.she pour her heart to him and he just..he just said it's not enough. I felt so bad but then at the end I realise. It's Lou who is being selfish and not him. We should learn to let go. And move on its difficult I know but we should. I cried for and hour nd upset whole day when she didn't speak to him. My feelings were so real. But yeah it's a story.. Nd very well story.. I am thankful to all the ppl who gave their voices. I love u all.. love you Jojo. Awaiting for movie.

    Story
    "Thought provoking, heart wrenching, joy."

    This is not your typical love story so read with caution. It makes you think, makes you hurt, makes you happy but gives you a peak into how a realistic story would actually play out. Beautiful, heart breaking, I loved it.

    "Not at All as Expected"
    Any additional comments?

    As many readers have noted, this is not the young adult version of this story, nor the Hollywood version. (Well, the Hollywood version opens June 3, so I guess we'll see. Certainly Louisa Clarke, played by Emilia Clarke -- Daenerys in Game of Thrones -- is better looking than the author presents Luisa to be in the novel.).
    This is a grown up story, with real humor and real consequences. The characters are like us all -- with good qualities and bad -- and sympathy is drawn not just to the main characters, the crippled man and his caretaker, but to her parents, her sister, even her boyfriend, and to her charge's parents and their complicated relationship. This is a story that cannot end well for everyone. And it doesn't, but then again it does, in that Love Story, English Patient way. There are laughs along with the tears. Well done! The narration is nearly perfect, although I could have done without the different voices. As for the writer, she needs to get over her tic of noting that people "swallow." We all swallow. It is rarely worth mentioning, at least not so often.

    "A bit predictable, but I still cried"

    The storyline was a bit predictable, but I still found it enjoyable (and still cried at the ending). Entertaining, but not great.

    Deeply sad after listening to the audiobook. Will definitely listen to it a gain. Meaningful and help me realize value in life.

    "Tragically wonder love story well performed!"

    I loved this story and it's wonderfully flawed leading lady and man. The multiple narrators allowed me to feel I wad actually right with the characters, seeing their lives and not just listening to a book. I'll miss Clark and Will!
