Me Before You by Jojo Moyes | Book Review

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes 

Reading Group: 17+

Personal Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars 

Given SummaryThe beloved New York Times bestseller—with more than five million copies sold. The stunning sequel, After You, is available now.

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?

Cover: The cover of this novel is very simple, it's just the title and the authors name, but I like it.  It's almost as if this book doesn't need an image to it, which if you read it is true.  Everyone in this novel was someone else before Louisa and Will met than they were when Will died. 

My Review: I loved this book.  I finished it in one day.  It left me feeling the same way All The Brigth Places left me.  In a weird sad, but happy I don't really know what to feel way.  I loved this story, but it was definitely heartbreaking.  For me especially, the idea of dying is super freaky so for someone to chose it in the way that Will did, because it was suicide, but at the same time it wasn't just throws me for a loop.  And I felt bad for Louisa because she fell for him, but he already knew his expiration date.  How can you spend time with someone when you know it's going to end.  My sister also read this story and we went and saw the movie and she said that truthfully how long would Louisa stay with Will.  He can't do anything and she wouldn't be abel to have kids or anything so who long would it last?  And that's exactly Will's frame of mind.  His life ended when he go hit by the motorcyclist, every day after that was just borrowed time.  He wanted so much more for her and that's exactly what he was able to do.  Taking that job was the best thing Louisa could have done for herself, even if it was the saddest and hardest as well.  I loved this novel and I loved the movie, even though I know many people didn't.  I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is willing to have their heart ripped out from their chest.
