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 lived 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 hapiness 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. - excerpt from book.
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes is the first book from said author that I picked up. I heard many good things about this book and also it has been signed for a movie which is in filming stages now. This book was really touching hence it made me tear up. It was such a lovely story and very realistic about life at the same time. So much of it was so real and I appreciated the different perspective that this book gave me.
The characters of this book is nothing special but I like them because they are just like any other person in this world. Their struggles were real, their personalities and their interactions were all just real. I love the simple writing of the book and sometimes a different point of view is written too but mainly it's the main female character's view. The plot is unexpected for me as I have no idea what was to happen so I just kept reading because I wanted to know the ending quickly.
Thanks to this book it helped me understand something important that is currently happening in my life. I highly recommend this book to readers who often enjoy realistic love stories, a slice of life. If you are a person who enjoys books from Cecelia Ahern, Marian Keyes or adult novel writers that are in contemporary genre, this is most suitable for you.
