Book Review: Me Before You By Jojo Moyes


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.


I am very shocked this novel has a high 5 star rating. Is it because of the nature of the book in the topics it discusses?

This novel is very short, it is not descriptive and it is as if it lazily skips half of the descriptions that novels usually have. For example she would say they discussed this, then the next thing you know they are off jetting away somewhere.

This novel gives off the briefest impressions of a woman finding herself through caring for a quadriplegic. She did come out of her shell and I appreciate how Will helped her but it was just so brief and not very descriptive.

3/5 Stars
