Me Before You was recommended to me. I was fully prepared for a light-hearted romantic novel. This is not a light hearted romantic novel. I repeat - "This is not a light hearted romantic novel". However, it is an amazing story and very thought provoking.
This novel grabs you from the start and will not let you set it down until the last page is turned. It will have you crying, laughing and feeling blessed.
This is a great story for men and women alike. I would love to discuss with a male to get his take on it and compare his view to those made by Will, the main character.
Don't wait another minute, pick up this novel and enter the world of Louisa and Will, you will be so glad you did.
SYNOPSIS by Barnes & Noble
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?
RATING - 5 STARS - Amazing!
