Louisa Clark is an ordinary young woman living an exceedingly ordinary life—steady boyfriend, close family—who has never 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.
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?
This book is a MASTERPIECE!!!!!!!!!! Deserves 5 stars!
Jojo Moyes is one hell of a brilliant author that I’ve come to love dearly after reading this book.
I’ve come across people refusing to read the sequel “After You” because the first book (MBY) was sad. But, to me, that book is a must to read as well. seeing how many secrets are being revealed that are related to Will Traynor.
Back to “Me Before You“…I admit that the ending got me sobbing even though i tried not to, but those goddamn emotions were too strong. I understand both of Louisa and Will..i truly do and wouldn’t want anyone to be in such a position.
Lou wanting to do her best to save Will, and Will being tired of such a life. I cannot pick sides, but Jojo did a wonderful job portraying their emotions; Love and Pain..
I lost count how many times did i read on and on this book, I know most of their dialogs by heart. My favorite scene was definitely that in the wedding, where Will told Louisa she’s the only reason that makes him get up in the morning…Will is a sweetheart, I’m telling y’all.
I totally recommend to read this book, it’s a MUST TO!!
