Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
I normally hate hate hate romance and chick flicks but I decided to give this a try. And oh my gosh I couldn't put it down. I even got annoyed when people tried to stop me reading when I was on break at work. I finished it in two days whilst working full time. I am now onto After You, the sequel and I am still in love. Jojo moyes is a beautiful writer.
I would definitely recommend reading this book! I found myself hooked into it very quickly and loved the characters and how they developed. I also found the prose very enticing and well written. Although it's a bit of a tragic romance novel I still found myself loving every page. I also saw the film afterwards and it also exceeded my expectations!
Could not put this book down! It was such a smooth read and I loved the quirkiness with Lou and how she managed to soften Will. Please do not forget that this story is not representative of all disabled/quadriplegic peoples. The story was written from an "able-bodied" person so she does not capture every feeling of a disabled person.
This book is so loved up but sad at the same time, i would advise those reading though if you have only seen the film read the book it is truly much better. I cried at the end due to the last few pages, you will fall in love with some characters and into anger with others. A good read... Get the tissues ready!
I literally stayed up until 3:45am last night finishing this book because I could not put it down!! I really enjoyed it. I'm a fan of romance/love stories and what I liked about this one was that it was different from the usual boy meets girl stories.
This is one of my favorite books. You'll laugh, cry and sometimes both at once. Jo Jo Moyes is a great author and screen writer. The movie was very well done as well! I would recommend this book to anybody who loves romance and happy reads.
I got this book as a gift and I absolutely loved it! It is one of those books where you cannot put down and want to read in one day! The characters you grow to love and relate to in many ways. This is one book that you'll cry and laugh!
I usually don't read new adult book like this but I really enjoyed it. I am planning on reading After You soon. The plot was vet well thought out and unique which I enjoyed. I would defiantly recommend reading this book.
OMG This book is. ...great and cruel , made me mourn much, but has a moral , this must be enjoyed without thinking much about the future , live today , worry tomorrow , love the character of Will Traynor .
This is such a beautiful story, after I read this book I was hooked on Jojo Moyes writing and have since read three more of her books. I haven't read me after you yet but I look forward to it!
