Me before you by JoJo Moyes
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?
Can a dying man save the living but dead girl? Louisa Clark is from an average working family. She lives and average life, with an average boyfriend and pretty much an average family. Simply right. Life for Louisa is uncomplicated; she doesn’t strive for much except to help her family earn a living.
Will lived a privileged life; from a well to do family. He enjoyed every single moment. He worked hard and played even harder. That is until one tragic morning on his commute to work. His life was then forever changed.
This book follows two people thrust together through tragic circumstances. From their first meeting, they were akin to oil and water. He didn’t want her there and she didn’t really want to be there. Their lives become deeper intertwined, and Louisa makes it her mission to give Will another option. This book drifted on touchy topics, it was hilarious and sad. There was heart wrenching moments and moments where you just wanted to scream…get on with it will you. Overall I enjoyed the story and I am looking forward to the follow up to see if Louisa’s life does change more. 4 Stars
