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
    "Caretaker tries to show patient how to live"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, I would. It deals with a human tradgey in human terms exploring euphanisa as an alternative to living with a severe disability


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I did not like the ending.I felt the main character was heartless to insist the caretaker witness his euphanisa.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The birthday party


    Could you see Me Before You being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    yes, Meryl Strepe the Mother definitely. Allyson Sweeny the caretaker

    Story
    "Hot tip! You will cry."
    Would you listen to Me Before You again? Why?

    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.


    What other book might you compare Me Before You to and why?

    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.


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

    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.


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

    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)

    "You had me from the start!"

    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.
