From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Giver of Stars, discover the love story that captured over 20 million hearts in Me Before You, After You, and Still Me.
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 and perfect for fans of John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars, 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?
Reading Challenge 2016 Book Review 📚
‘Me Before You’ by #JoJoMoyes
“You only get one life. It’s actually your duty to live it as fully as possible.”
I devoured this story in less than 24 hours! It lunges forwards, grabs you by the heart and keeps it in a firm grip until the very end, when it’s burst and you are left to ugly cry….bogies and all! I think I’m starting to get more emotional as the years go on.
You have read the blurb, this is the story of small town girl; Louisa who is employed as a carer to Will, a local man who returned home from London following an accident which left him as a quadriplegic two years previous. A strong friendship then develops between the two as Will parts knowledge of his action packed former life with Louisa, who has spent the last six years working in the local cafe and the her latest reads was a glossy magazine!
I may have to give myself a few weeks to compose myself before I delve into ‘After You’. Let’s not even begin to discuss whether I’ll be able to watch the movie!
An emotional read, worth every page.
