Summary:

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 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?

    I love the story, it just needs more depth into Will's perspective of the situation and feelings. The narrators were great, but needed a better break between people's chapters.

    Such a wonderful story, full of emotions and unforgettable feeling of love. Enjoyed every second of it.

    I loved this book, I was really hoping for a happy ending but knew I was grasping for straws! I think the narration and story telling was great! This was a very good representation of disabled patients and their care givers, I hate that he made the choice to die but understand that Lou couldn't change his mind. I knew that it was leading to a heartbreaking end but still held hope! Will recommend!

  • Liz White

    This book is absolutely amazing but the narrator isn't so lovely. She sounds too old for Lou and is very slow, I have to speed the reading up. Amazing book though.

  • Kathy Browning

    Great narration, would have loved a little more something to the story, mystery, love,action? Kind of slow moving but still enjoyable.
