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 book was so good. I laughed, I cried, oh how I cried. Moyes brings all emotions to life and fills your heart to the brink while breaking it at the same time.
I would recommend this to a friend because of the skill of the writer. It is tender, romantic and keeps ones interest at the same time. I could not stop listening
The humanist of it how we are all alike deep down inside and need love.
One of the most incredible stories I have ever read. Brought to life my the narrator with such enthusiasm that I felt enveloped in the story as if I were living it myself. Humor as comic relief-well placed and appropriate. Going to see the movie...but I am sure it will pale in comparison!!
love to listen to excellently written, superb penmanship especially when the story is a page turner and the narrator is extremely gifted.
A well written and well told story about the gift of life or its curse, about love and irony. Hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.
if you're happy and you know it....
I loved this story. I was engrossed from nearly the beginning. Extremely well-narrated. Hooked all the way through. Captures the realities of being a disabled person in an able-bodied world.
