My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book took me a while to finish. It’s different from what I’m use to reading. The story line was good and I love the characters. However, this book crushed my heart. I can’t say much since I don’t give spoilers but you’ve been warned. I’m not sure if I’m going to continue with the series. Even though I’m curious about what is going to happen to the main character and how she fairs.
Louisa Clark is an ordinary young woman 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?
