Product 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.

The first thing you should know is that writing this review with tears running down my face. I should’ve probably wait a little before typing this, but i just needed to talk about this book. I love it. I was expecting a cheesy romance, but what i got was an explosions of feels. Yes, obviously, the romance is important, but i felt like this book was so much more than just a love story. This book made me think. I kept wondering what i would do if i was in Will’s situation? what if i was in Lou’s place? or even Will’s parents?  I kept think about life it self and when is it okay to say, yup, i had enough. It’s also a book that focus alot on Life itself and how to really make the best of it. I really like seeing Will trying to push Lou into trying new things while Lou was trying to help Will find life fun again. Together, they simply tried to make the best of what they had. I love Lou’d voice, she was an extraordinary character. She was really interesting to follow around. She had such a great energy. Will was complex and sad, and also so smart, and funny. His sarcastic voice was great and i love seeing him interact with Lou. Familly is also an other important part of this story. You have two very different kind of Familly and it was great seeing how the react to their situation, sometimes together, sometimes all alone. The writing was great, it was my first book by Jojo Moyes and i don’t think it will be my last. The ending broke me, Will’s letter was perfect and painfull. Gosh, i’m still crying! I loveeeeeeeee this book so much more than i expected, it was emotional, but also sweet and fun. i’m so excited for the movie, i’m going to be such a mess. Me Before You : 4.5/5
Es uno de los libros con los que más he llorado y disfrutado a la vez . La historia en sí me llamo mucho la atención ya que no suelo leer libros tristes pero yo pensaba que el final acabaría bien pero me impacto tanto que no me lo creía y estaba indignada ósea el libro en si me ha gustado pero el final no porque a mí me gustan los finales felices

Lou and Will learn a lot from each other as the book progresses, so in turn, I learnt a lot too. I think reading this book may have even made me a better person because I certainly have a completely changed perspective on quadraplegics, on life and on love. I cannot recommend this book enough, it is absolutely phenomenal and a must-read for everyone. I didn’t think that this sort of book was for me and now it’s my favorite book, so please give it a chance! For teenage readers, if you liked TFIOS, then Me Before You is probably also up your street. For adult readers, anyone with a heart will love this book.

I watched the movie before reading the book, but I wish I had done it the other way around! The book has so many details that the movie left out, so I would definitely recommend it to anyone even if they have already seen the movie.

This was one of the best books I have ever read. So good that it makes me want to lower the ratings of all of the other books I have read just so that this (and maybe Clockwork Princess) is the only book with a 5-star rating. I can't properly describe right now how exactly this book moved me and made me analyze my own thoughts, as I am still currently crying, but just know that it did. Absolutely wonderful.

I came across this book when the movie came out. Absolutely a must read for anyone that loves a good romance story. I read this in just a couple of days because it’s just so good I couldn’t put it down. Hands down one of my favourite books.
