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?

no spoilers- I had fun listening to this. great story and great performance. this book is particularly great for runners that just want a small distraction in their runs.
I watched the movie before I listened to the book and I thoroughly enjoyed them both. The characters were rich, vibrant and 3-dimensional. What I found unique and what made the experience even more enjoyable, was the differing POVs. I intend to listen to part 2 and hope that it is also made into a movie.
It was hard to turn this one off. The performance was spot on and wasn't distracting from the story. And even though I knew how the book was going to end, I was still engaged to until the last words.
This was my first audiobook ever. Decided to get my free book and since I had seen the trailer for the movie, I chose this book to listen to.
I finished this book over a weekend, 2 days of cleaning and I couldn't stop listening 'till the very end. I had always been skeptical about audiobooks (thought they wouldn't be as good as reading the book by myself, but it blew me away!
This story warmed my heart, the characters are lovable and somewhat relatable.
Louisa was so quirky and sweet, and her relationship with Will had a natural flow to it.
This book made me literally laugh out loud and chuckle from time to time. It also had very sad heart-wrenching moments that made me shed a few tears.
This is for sure, a book I will go back and listen to once again.
Very emotional. A tear jerker but in a good way. This book gives you a look into a world most do not know or understand. This was my first book by the author and I am now a Jojo Moyes fan.

a different type if love story, "Some love stories aren't epic novels, some are short stories" 🙏🏽
It was a bubblegum romance novel, with interesting characters and interesting plot. That he didn't die. Spoiler alert.
