Discover the love story that captured over 20 million hearts in Me Before You, After You, and Still Me.
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?
I originally picked up a copy of Me Before You because I had seen the movie trailer and it looked absolutely amazing. On top of that, just about everyone was raving about how awesome of a book it was. I don’t usually read adult books either, so this book was out of the range of what I’m used to.
However, it completely opened me up to something new and I can’t wait to read more adult novels in the future. The novel follows a girl named Louisa Clark who was recently fired from her job. She ends up getting a new job tending to Will Trainer who went through a serious accident in the past which has led him to become someone that he never thought he’d be.
As the days grow on, the two of them grow seriously closer. I absolutely loved Louisa Clark. She was always so strong and was always loving life. To be honest, it was kind of inspiring. She made me want to live life the way that I want to live it because life only comes around once.
Will Trainer was just as great of a character. He was extremely lovable and I felt terrible for everything that he was going through.
I know for sure that I can’t wait to get my hands on After Me and I also can’t wait for the movie to come out on DVD because I actually haven’t seen it yet!
