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?

Knowing the ending now I don't believe I would've read it but I'm glad I did very moving eye-opening read.... Make she want to improve your life another
Oh my! Don't listen to the last chapters without being focused on what you are listening to. I will see my life through new eyes. No limits! Every moment is precious. Tell those you love how you feel. ☺ I have no choice of course,but to listen to the next book. So very well done! ☺
I really enjoyed this book from Audible. Not only did the narrators do a great job, but the story line was very personable and engaging. I found myself trying to listen to "Me Before You" at every chance I could get. Just when you think you know where the story will go, it changes and throws you off the track. I loved the characters, story, and presentation.
A friend of mine read the book in 2 days. I couldn't stop listening. It is funny and kept me engaged until the very last hour. It helped me to get distracted in traffic hours or exercising. now I am waiting for the movie to be released in the theaters.
I knew this book was being turned into a movie and wanted to read it shortly after the movie trailer came out. Once I saw the trailer I could better understand the characters when I listened. This book made me laugh and cry. Get angry but also understand their story and sad result. Be prepared to become involved as much as a bystander can be. I will absolutely recommend.
