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?

    "Loved it!!"

    This book was great makes you think about what you could do with your life instead of sitting around. Did start off a bit slow though.

    "beautiful story"

    Beautiful story and beautifully narrated. I couldn't wait to get to the ending but at the same time I didn't want the story to end.

    Story
    "Devolves into a lot of whining"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Stronger main characters


    What was most disappointing about Jojo Moyes’s story?

    Louisa Clarke is pathetic


    Would you listen to another book narrated by the narrators?

    Narration was good, but depends on the book.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Me Before You?

    I would just add a bit more grit for all of the characters.

    Story
    "Very predictable"

    The characters were under developed. It was hard for me to feel an emotion connection to the characters because they just didn't seem real. The plot line was very predictable. My husband and listened to this audio together. I'm the first few chapters I told him how the entire story line was going to play out. He said "I hope not, that's too predictable." I was correct, I can't wait for him to say so when I get home.

    Story
    "You'll Fall in Love - And Cry, And Cry, And Cry"
    What did you love best about Me Before You?

    It is rare that a book makes me care so much. This book goes straight to the heartstrings.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Lou. She went through so much in this book and she did her best to live up to everyone's expectations. I still don't know exactly what she wants by the end of this book, she lives for her parents, for her sister, for her employers, and for Will, too. She's probably the definition of selfless. I was so glad to have "met" her.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I don't want to leave spoilers, so I will merely say that the saddest moment in the book was my favorite, because it was so personal and because I never thought it would happen.


    If you could rename Me Before You, what would you call it?

    I wouldn't, I think the name is beautiful.

    "Listen with tissues."

    It's a great story, but beyond a tear-jerker. I love how the line isn't black or white, no character good or bad. Just human.

    Story
    "Less depressing than I expected"

    Excellent narration. I liked the opening male narrator a little less, but the others were great! I appreciated the inside look of what it must be like to be quadraplegic and a romance that involves actual obstacles you can understand. Honestly all the characters were endearing and I like a story that involves two people making each other better. I think that's how all good romance are made.

    "Held my attention throughout!!"

    Very interesting topic deftly discussing quadrupeligia, suicide, compassionate caregiving and love, albeit ending in severe disappointment then the final act of compassion
