I just finished reading Me Before You.  I read it in two days.  I did not want to put it down.  It’s original, funny, sad, and very thought-provoking.  I read the preview of this book and I didn’t really know what it was.  It sounded like a romantic novel.  A working-class girl in a small town in England has lost her job.  She has trouble finding another and reluctantly accepts an offer to be care-giver for a quadriplegic man.  She’s kind of quirky.  He’s bitter and has a difficult personality.  It’s a love story, but there’s a whole lot more.

Me Before You is the kind of book you have to read yourself to know what it’s about.  To read a more detailed plot would spoil the experience.  There is happiness in this story.  There are many very funny parts.  But there are also many sad moments and many difficult and moral decisions.

Jojo Moyes is an excellent writer.  Her characters are terrific.  She seems to have a real inside view of their feelings.  My favorite part is the dialogue between her two main characters, Lou Clark and Will Traynor.

That’s all I will say – anything else would ruin it.

Tomorrow I’ll post a review with spoilers – read that when you’ve finished Me Before You. There’s a lot to talk about in this book.

Thanks for visiting – come back soon!
