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?

    Story
    "More than a weepy, but a story of lives"

    Not a literary exercise but a plausible modern construction with a lot if heart about those that have and those that don't, what matters and possibly for some the meaning of selflessness. And, of course, love in all it's complexity. There were a few bits of philosophy scattered in like a modern soap but enjoyable and moving nevertheless. I did not choose to like this book but, like the girl in the story, I could not help it. Only a minor criticism about one of the actors accents (portraying the same people differently to the others but somehow more appropriately for it's error - a production error by someone less skilled in British accents I presume. Will I see the film. Probably not. I think with all its stardom it will still be disappointing when compared to the book and could trivialise much of the endpoint. May all the Lou's in the world meet a Will. There aren't so many of either.

    "Fantastic!"

    An absolutely beautiful book. So true and raw and messy and sticky but at the same time polished and lovely. Highly recommend

    "I couldn't stop reading. Enjoy."

    I couldn't stop reading, I was on it while driving as always but also while I was putting on my make up, doing housework, everywhere.
    Great writing, excelent narration.

    Story
    "Lovely Story!"

    Anytime you think you know what is going to happen something happens that alteres the outcome very much like life. While the two chapters told through the eyes of other characters is very helpful in understanding some bits of information otherwise unavailable it is not a style that I typically like. Although in this case it was done in a way that you see it as a benefit of the chapters being done in this way.

    "Captures the Nuance of Falling in Love"

    Captures the Nuance of Falling in Love PERFECTLY

    The tiniest detail isn't neglected. I felt myself so immersed in the characters that I could even smell certain things described by the author. Brilliantly portrays the beauty and complexity of falling in love. And reminded me, a long married woman, what it felt like. A wonderfully well written tale.

    "LOVE the story and narrators"

    A timeless book that always tugs at the heart strings. A good reread between books. With each character change at the new chapters came a new narrator setting the mood even better.
