Me Before You by Jojo Moyes review

Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life – steady boyfriend, close family – who has barely been farther afield than her 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 loved a huge life – big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel – and he is not interested in exploring a new one. 

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, Lou sets out to show him that life is still worth living.

😔😢 OMG. I put off reading this book for the longest time. I figured it was another typical adult love story and I’d be able to predict the ending way before it ended. But after seeing the movie trailer I thought I would give it ago. So I read it with my friend Sarah and I’m glad I did. It was not what I expected. I loved seeing Lou grow. And Will as well. I hated Lou and Will’s parents and siblings. They were so annoying! 😒 and mean. That part hit a nerve with me. Specially Lou’s family and how they talked to her. That’s how my family use to treat me. 

I’m not really sure what else to say about this book. It was good. I recommend it. I will not be reading the sequel though. I felt like this was a good as a stand alone. I don’t need to know the after. 

5/5 🌟

  1. I felt the same way about Lou’s family as well. They seriously annoyed me. Where she slept, the names they called her. I questioned a few times about their love for her.
    It was all about money to her family.
    I also didn’t like them.
