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?

    "A tear jerker and true love story"

    Loved it from start to finish. It was great that you get to see the views of different characters in the book.

    "Mixed Feelings"

    I finished this book conflicted.
    I loved the conflict and how the romance developed.
    It was painfully realistic at times, which is a good thing for me because there's nothing worse than a horribly fake romance story.

    (Forgive my vagueness of the next few sentences, I don't want to ruin the book for anyone.)
    The end gift and the ultimate choice of the subject matter ended sour.
    I lost respect for the main character despite understanding her choice.
    I also found it hard to respect her initially because of her hideous choice in men.
    So when something good comes along and she makes the end choice, I just felt there should have been at least one more fight.

    What I really want to know though, is where she is now. The end just sort of dropped her off into this next stage of life and I wanted to know how this affected her.

    Ultimately, I cared for all the characters and that's a great sign of a great story and I won't forget it.

    I would still recommend it, despite it leaving me with too many questions.

    Story
    "Not for Me"
    What disappointed you about Me Before You?

    Disabled life is not worth living, despite a caring family, wealth, best medical care & lover.


    What was most disappointing about Jojo Moyes’s story?

    the moral and ethical implications of the book's ending.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Excellent


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment - just not my type of book. I prefer a more positive outlook on life.


    Any additional comments?

    This is not a love story or a feel good story.

    "Smiling through tears"

    Beautiful story. Not what I expected but more touching and real. Not one for days you don't want to tear up. So so sweet

    "So in love with this book!"

    I just finished this book and can't stop thinking about it. I wished it wouldn't have ended. Such a sweet romantic story that gives you all the feels and makes you fall in love with the characters. Can't wait for the movie to come out.

    Story
    "Emotional roller coaster"

    Wow where to even begin. Wonderfully written story! I listen to these books while I walk around grocery shopping or working out and multiple times it was so witty and funny that I snorted out loud and got weird looks! You get so attached to Louisa and will. And I love how she gives the point of view of multiple characters. This is such a real and raw story. It tugs at your heart strings and you feel like you are really there with the characters and have to pull yourself back and remind yourself that it isn't happening to you. I love how I could tell that the author really did research into quadriplegics and showed their not only daily but hourly struggle and presented both sides of the struggle (the quadriplegic and the people that love them) so well. I really had no idea how much they have to go through and it was humbling. As one reviewer said too; I laughed and I ugly cried multiple times each. Over all it's a wonderful and very different book. Give it a try!

    "A sad romantic story."

    I loved the descriptions in the story. Some of the medical information was flawed and at times the character development did not seem realistic. Overall an enjoyable read.

    Story
    "Ok i love Lu and Will together!"
    Would you listen to Me Before You again? Why?

    YES! I just don't understand why!! UGH!! I was hoping there would be that happy ending but nope. I did love the book tho! It was very enjoyable and Lu just had so much potential....she was just such a mess, haha. I loved the characters...they were all so creative!


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

    They were meant to be in one another's life, but he just didn't want to have to sit through it.
