Description

The beloved New York Times bestseller-with more than five million copies sold-by the author of One Plus One and The Girl You Left Behind 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. 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 The stunning sequel, After You, will be published on 9/29 by Pamela Dorman Books/Viking.

I stumbled upon this book shortly before the movie trailer was released, and I decided to read it before I see the movie. 

I have not cried that hard since Dobby's death and I don't say that lightly. The book was a bit slow in the beginning, but then it sucks you in like an emotional tornado. I loved every second.

I am not typically a fan of "romance" or love story books but I really enjoyed this book. I always like books that show circumstances from a different perspective. I thought this story was engaging and wasnt over powered by the love story. Definitely recommend to readers looking to get out of their typical genre

Jojo Moyes is an amazing author. This is a heartbreaking book that really makes you think about love and the purpose of life. I was not expecting the ending so for once an author managed to supervise me.

I must say this book had me in my feelings, it was literally a roller coaster of emotions. Some parts were certainly slower than others, but you just have to keep going. Very well written, recommend to audiences in their 20's and early 30's! Enjoyable book.

This book, just like the movie, made me cry like anything at the end of it. It is a beautiful and sad story about a girl who ends up working for a guy in a special situation and they change each other lives (for the better). Its about relationships, love, life, and loss. If you want a good cry, go read it!

Oh my, this book was the best love story that you didn’t realize was gonna be a love story book! The way Lou brought Will out of his depression shell and brought life into him for that short amount of time so just the definition of epic love.

This book takes you to England and the life of an ordinary young woman that gets a job doing the un-ordinary. This is a tear jerker so be sure to have your Kleenex ready. After reading it watch the movie.
