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?

    "Awkward pauses"

    The story is fantastic and the narrator has a good voice. The only problem was that there would be awkward pauses. The narrator would pause too long after sentence. You would think the chapter is over, but it's not.

    "Beautiful story"

    I know there was contraversy connected to this book. After reading it you will find that it isn't a support of suicide, but rather a means of explaining one man's choice and why it was right for him. All wrapped up in a love story that will make laugh... Smile... Groan and , of course, cry.

    "BEAUTIFUL STORY!!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would..it is a perfect representation of friendship, love and loss...


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Me Before You?

    When he tells her, that her love is not enough....I hurt for her!


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    I liked them all...it was done very well!


    If you could take any character from Me Before You out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Lou..because she is quirky and fun!


    Any additional comments?

    This was a very good book, and I am moving on to book 2 now...This story is tragic, and beautiful and I liked how the friendship between Lou and Will built and came to a crescendo...I really thought it was going to be forever...but sadly that is not how real life goes..This is well worth a listen and a credit!!

    Story
    "I am only reading this 2 watch the movie #khaleesi"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    SPOILER!!! ---- But this has to be said: At the very end I was hoping he would die of natural causes instead. I was secretly thinking during her flight to Switzerland that Will had pneumonia. However, it did make it a different book with him going to Dignitas.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I felt like Lou. I would be mad. But I would want to be with him through it all


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    She was great. It was different hearing different voices. It was nice to hear Will's mom and dad's perspectives.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I was originally hoping to watch this movie as a date night with my husband. I chose the book to read on a whim while I was on vacation and most times I was lifted by the humor. But listening to the end made me feel down. Instead of watching to movie in theaters I might wait. My husband has decided to watch Independence Day instead

    Story
    "Thank You SO much"
    If you could sum up Me Before You in three words, what would they be?

    truly, deeply connected


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you to the author for putting together this beautiful tale and allowing us to share it with you. I am a huge audiobook fan, as I work outside and often don't have time to sit and read (much as I miss that gift, life is just too on the move), and I love that I can work and listen and share in books. The story is written well, with words that truly paint the images and tale in your mind. The emotions are real, the adventures are possible and realistic, and the characters strengths' and flaws are something you can relate with. You may think you can guess where the story is going, or how it may end, but regardless if that is your style or not, this is the first time, in ages, that I've had an author keep me awake until I reached the end of the book, regardless of hour. Not because of the suspense or uncertainty, but because I truly felt I was a part of the story and I needed to be in the experience, know each moment, and feel the emotions the author was creating. Thank you so much for this book, this story, and...for After You...the perfect addition to help those that need to know where you go from here.
