Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
This book was spell bounding. I couldn't put it down because I needed to know what was going to happen next. I know, I need to read the next adaption to figure out what happens. I would recommend to anyone who needs some hope and push for something new.
This is such a beautiful love story. While I don't agree with assisted suicide like the book presents, it led to a lot of really good discussions with friends and challenged my thinking a great deal. The story stuck with me long after I closed the book.
Finally finish reading and say "finally" because I take almost 3 months to finish it (I do not have much free time), the book is very good pushes us to analyze our present and future but mostly leaves us wondering if we are giving that one hundred percent.
Great book if you need a good cry! Jojo Moyes will make you happy to have your heart tore apart. Following Louisa Clark through this journey teaches you more about yourself than Louisa. Me Before You is a book that will change your view on life and living.
Loved the book and it broke my heart. I think the character development is phenomenal. Lou is amazing And the slow development of her back story really helps you understand her. Will is also a tough character but once you read you understand his struggles.
This book! So good. Yet so sad don't want to give spoilers but you must read the book first if you haven't watched the movie. Has a great storyline love the characters its a must read ok buy it and read it! You will fall in love with JoJo moyes books!
I love this book so much, no words can explain. This book was written so well and it just flowed so beautifully. My favorite character of course was Lou because she is such a kind soul. And beware, make sure you have a full box of tissues near by btw.
I could not put this book down, honestly. I love how unique and bubbly Lou is, as she's just a great character in general. The playing of complete opposite personalities worked very well in this novel. Despite the teary ending, this was a great book!
Pre warning...have a box of tissues on hand to read if you have a giant heart. It's a romance that's not a romance. At the end don't read the prequel to the next book after you just buy it...the end!!! Actually have like 3 boxes of tissues!!!
I'm almost done with this novel and I love it! I love the story line, love that it's relatable and also love that I can read it at my own pace. There is some lingo in there that I have to look up but all in all it's a wonderful story. Can't wait to see the movie.
