Book Description: Me Before You

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

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 barely been farther afield than their 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.

Book Review ~ Me Before You

It was very moving. It made me cry a lot. As a person, it will remind you that sometimes, people you encounter in life will change you. In the future, I will read this again. It’s worth it. Ara of My Book and My Coffee

The story is about love and how it can affect you and the person you love. And the people around you. 

I still want to cry even though I’ve finished the book already, and now I’m writing the review. Really emotional right now. 

This book is about two people, Lou Clark and Will Traynor, who will meet as if it was destiny. Maybe it was. Actually, I believe it is. The story was that effective. It was written really well. 

Lou Clark’s character is simple and colorful. She’s relatable and I love her fashion sense. :) Will Traynor’s character’s is anything but simple. But he had a motorcycle accident and the aftermath took away his desire to live. He has an adventurous soul, which makes it harder for him to be happy after the accident. Meeting Lou as his carer/companion will definitely change him. His outlook? Maybe. His endgame? Maybe, maybe not. You’ll have to read. Note: You’ll need lots and lots of tissues. There's a movie already so if you'd like to watch it, you may. As a book lover, I advise you to read the book first. I haven’t seen the movie yet and I don’t think I can. At least not for now. Too emotional.  

I am impressed because the story really captivated my attention. Reading it was a journey and you’ll never want to stop; you’ll want to see what’s going to happen next. What’s next for Lou? For Will? Will he change his mind? Will there be a ‘happy ever after’? You won’t really know. You’ll have an idea but you will want to find out for yourself. 

All I can say right now is I was devastated to learn about the ending. You'll wish that it's the other way around but it is what it is and as a reader, you'll understand, too, that it's probably something one of the main character has to experience. There’s a ‘light at the end of the tunnel’ thing but still, I was very emotional the moment I knew what’s going to happen with the two main characters. I recommend this book to anyone who loves to read romance novels. It’s a book that you need to read. I assure you; it’s going to make you love this book, too.

  1. Hi Ara, I completely agree with your review of Me Before You. I sobbed like a baby at the end and carried on crying for a good while afterwards. I wasn't sure if I could handle the sequel it upset me so much, but I'm so glad I read After You. You should read that when you're ready. Carla xx

    1. Oh gosh. Yes, when ready, I plan to read 'After You' but not right now. I actually read its synopsis but I still cried so definitely not read. LOL Thanks for stopping by!
