Me Before You is the story of Will Traynor's life after a tragic accident and ordinary Lou, who cares for him out of her desperation for a job. In many ways Me Before You follows the typical boy meets girl storyline, unlikely people meeting in unlikely situations. However, this particular unlikeliness creates a twist that makes the story all its own. The twist drives the story through to its ending, which was unsure to me until the last couple pages. And the ending is one about which everyone will have an opinion!
Unfortunately, there is little I can say without giving away the very happenings that build the story to its ending. But with the tag line, "What do you do when making the person you love happy also means breaking your own heart?", who wouldn't want to check it out? I enjoyed Jojo Moyes's ability to draw me into the story with an interesting beginning and only a measure of romance to carry it out. I will definitely read another of her books.
I know there are other Jojo Moyes fans out there! Any title suggestions?
