Me Before You by Jojo Moyes is this week’s book recommendation.
Why should you pick it up?
First, tell me have you already read the book?
If no, the book still sounds familiar, doesn’t it? You are right the book has been adapted into a movie starring Emilia Clarke and Sam Clafin. I must admit I had watched the movie before picking up the book.
You know there are rare cases when the movies are almost as good as the books. This was one of those. But of course, the book has so many more layers to it. Honestly, I loved reading it, every page and every perspective in it. I enjoyed and felt the emotions that the author tried to convey so much so that while at the ending, my eyes welled up with tears.
It’s a love story which made me realise I should read romance more often. You should definitely pick this up if you haven’t already. And watch the movie too. It’s worth a watch.
Leaving you with the blurb.
Louisa Clark is an ordinary young woman living an exceedingly ordinary life—steady boyfriend, close family—who has never 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, 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?
