Description

The beloved New York Times bestseller—with more than five million copies sold—by the author of One Plus One and The Girl You Left Behind

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?

The stunning sequel, After You, will be published on 9/29 by Pamela Dorman Books/Viking.  

Publishers Weekly Review

Oct 08, 2012 – In Moyes’s (The Last Letter from Your Lover) disarmingly moving love story, Louisa Clark leads a routine existence: at 26, she’s dully content with her job at the cafe in her small English town and with Patrick, her boyfriend of six years. But when the cafe closes, a job caring for a recently paralyzed man offers Lou better pay and, despite her lack of experience, she’s hired. Lou’s charge, Will Traynor, suffered a spinal cord injury when hit by a motorcycle and his raw frustration with quadriplegia makes the job almost unbearable for Lou. Will is quick-witted and sardonic, a powerhouse of a man in his former life (motorcycles; sky diving; important career in global business). While the two engage in occasional banter, Lou at first stays on only for the sake of her family, who desperately needs the money. But when she discovers that Will intends to end his own life, Lou makes it her mission to persuade him that life is still worth living. In the process of planning “adventures” like trips to the horse track—some of which illuminate Lou’s own minor failings—Lou begins to understand the extent of Will’s isolation; meanwhile, Will introduces Lou to ideas outside of her small existence. The end result is a lovely novel, both nontraditional and enthralling.

Superb

Just finished Me Before You and I have tears streaming down my face. Wonderfully written, I felt completely immersed in Lou and Will's life. This will defiantly be a book that will stay with me.

Couldn't put it down

Picked it up at 9:30 pm and couldn't put it down till I was done at 5:45 am. The characters were so well developed and honest. Seeing each character's point of view, greatly enriching the storyline. I had to stop more than once to clear my tears. Like Louisa I knew I had to kept reading to see Will's decision to the heartbreaking end. This my first JoJo Moyer book. Thick I'll have take a break from the next one. Give myself time to process the emotions I was dealing with.

Me Before You

I could not put this book down. A truly wonderful love story. Be sure to have at least 2 boxes of tissues by your chair while reading. I have never cried so much over a story.
