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?

The character of Luisa is someone anyone can slip into and the story leads the reader into a realm of emotion that is not a daily one.
The story is believable.
Excellent portrayal and emotional scope.
Realistic relaying of different reactions to the difficult subject of guided suicide.
Yes, I would. It deals with a human tradgey in human terms exploring euphanisa as an alternative to living with a severe disability
I did not like the ending.I felt the main character was heartless to insist the caretaker witness his euphanisa.
The birthday party
yes, Meryl Strepe the Mother definitely. Allyson Sweeny the caretaker
I absolutely would. It's well written and an interesting take on such a topical subject. I think re-reading it, after knowing the end, I would be able to pay more attention to specific details and conversations with better understanding.
Probably My Sister's Keeper. They both tackle tough subjects that are applicable to society today and cause you to question how you feel about them.
I loved the main character, Louisa Clark, she is very relatable. However it was also brilliant having other voices read the chapters that were from different character's perspectives.
Bring a box of tissues.
(Funnily enough, they made this into a movie coming out this summer and even watching the trailer my eyes welled up with tears)
Fell into this book and could not stop. Did not want to put it down so to speak. Thought provoking and insightful. Opened my mind with understanding of those limited by mobility.
beautiful story. I was taken on a rollercoaster of emotions and absolute terror in this book. But I loved every second of it. incredibly beautiful and we'll written. But will!!! I sobbed like a two year old...worse actually.
