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 difficult subject done very well"

    Moyes did an amazing job of building a great story out of a very complex subject. I didn't want to stop listening! The complexity of love and loss, relationships,dysfunctional family all delivered with wonderful imagination and grace. This was a wonderful piece of entertainment!

    I believe a reviewer should finish a book before submitting a review. What do you think?

    "Silly sentimental story"

    So obvious from the start how it would turn out. Waste of time. Not my cup of tea.

    What did you love best about Me Before You?

    Great story; uplifting; outstanding characterization; excellent dialogue; Lyons' narration.


    Any additional comments?

    A rare book that made me think about life in general and my ordinary life in particular.

    Story
    "I couldn't stop listening"

    I bought the audio version and it was wonderful. So wonderful that I didn't sleep much because I was so addicted to the story. Of course I was wishing Will changed his mind but I respected his wishes. The story teaches never to let life just slip away. Always live to the fullest.

    Story
    "Beautiful"

    It pulled strings at my heart and made me ask me self questions that I haven't thought about. It's beautiful, romantic, could very well be real, and we can all put ourselves into Lou's shoes. I loved listening to this story. The performance of the readers was amazing! They gave tone, emotion and realism to the story. Now I'll have to watch the movie and see if it will be this good.

    "Meh"

    The story is ok. Kind of flat and very typical of of a story to be made into a movie.
