Me Before You - Jojo Moyes Book Description

Look out for Jojo’s new book, Still Me, the next book featuring Louisa Clark from Me Before You and After You, coming soon!

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?

    Me Before You by Jojo Moyes is the first book in her series, Me Before You . This is the story of Louisa Clark and Will Traynor. It is powerfully emotional, quite heartbreaking but also leaves you with a sad but wistful happiness at the end (read as: Not a TOTAL tragedy, but grab your tissues!) If you have seen the movie, you already know. If not - be prepared for the emotional wringer. Lou is a bit of a mess when we first meet her. She is in denial about the standstill that her life is at and is happy in that denial. Taking the caregiver job out of sheer desperation, she finds herself in a unique and uncomfortable position but when she finally breaks down Will's surly resistance we see that even he cannot resist her charm. Will is a heartbreaking leading character. His quadriplegia has taken away from him every single one of the pleasures he enjoyed in life prior to the accident and left him in pain and with the need to rely on someone 24-7 for help with even the smallest of tasks. Lou absolutely charms the surliness right out of him but her contract is only for six months and there is a reason for that. As I watched the movie before I read the book, the entire time I was able to envision the actors while reading. The movie follow closely while, obviously, not containing all the intricacies that was Lou & Will's relationship. I am beyond pleased that I read the book and will be diving into the next too right away... After You and Still Me. Enjoy!

    I just finished reading this book and I do not have any words to explain it. Let’s put it this way. This is probably the most I have ever cried for a fictional character. I recommend this book to anyone with a soul or anyone that wants to feel like they have a soul. Look, jus read the gosh darn. It’ll make you laugh, cry (a lot), smile and smirk, and give you all the feelz. And if you have even smallest heart in your body you would scream at Will for making you feel that way. Just read this book. P.S. I’m not lying about that still crying. I’m actually crying while I’m writing this. If I could attach a photo of my dripping face I would, just to show you what this book did to me. Ok bai

    I found me before you very enjoyable. I loved Lou and her fresh voice. She was different in a way that made you stop and look twice at her. I hated though how her family treated her. Her father was horrible to her constantly making horribly offensive jokes about her, her weight, her not being smart enough. To say the least his lack of respected for his daughter was horrific but other than that the book was great and the character development was amazing. Truly a literary masterpiece or romance and heartbreak that really does leaving you asking yourself "would it be better to survive or to let go?".

    This book was so enduring, that you are able to feel all of Louisa’s emotions. It has been a while that a story has got me so involved. If you have the time I definitely recommend you give this a read!

    I really don't know what to say about Me before you. It's amazing, mesmerizing, heartbreaking, it's true to life. It's in touch with real life. It's eye-opening and a must read in my humble opinion. Some topics aren't easily discussed and they're definitely hard to comprehend, but still, we all need to step out our comfort zones and experience life to the fullest.
