Review of Me Before You By Jojo Moyes

06 Feb

Me Before You

Genre:  Realistic Fiction, Romance, Drama

Published: January 2012

Length: 516 Pages

5++ out of 5 Stars (I loved this book!)

Louisa “Lou” Clark loses her job at a coffee shop, but needs to find a job ASAP to help her family financially. The only job that is offered to her is as a caretaker for Will Traynor who was involved in an accident which left him a quadriplegic.  Lou has no experience in taking care of a quadriplegic, but takes the job since money is a great concern.  Will is not the easiest person to deal with, since he loathes how the accident has left him in a wheelchair.   However, two people, who otherwise would have never met, change the other’s life.

Okay, where do I start???  My review is not going to do justice as to how special and wonderful this book is.  I have not read a book in a long time that has made me think and cry as much as ‘Me Before You.’

This book is pricey, but I am telling you it is worth it!! Buy it! Read it!

I have already re-read certain parts of the book and have felt the same intense emotions as I did the first time.

I don’t want to give anything away because this is a book that I want the reader to experience. Some parts will be hard to read, but you will want to keep reading.

You will meet and get to know not only the main characters but their families and their relationship with each other. I felt connected to Lou and Will immediately.

So much I want to say, but I cannot.  Not knowing what to expect or how it was all going to end, made it all the more special.   So I am leaving you with the same.  However, I will tell you this…you will laugh, you will cry and you will think.


  • Did I skim? No.
  • Did I feel connected to the characters? Yes.
  • Do I recommend? Yes.
  • Would I reread? Yes

Ending: It was wonderful and everything else all in one.  I do not want to give anything away, but the last 10% of the book was 10+ stars.

Happy Reading
