This is the third time I’ve tried to write a review for this book. It’s a hard thing to do when you can’t believe it’s already over. You tend to go into denial if you hate endings like I do.
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.
Me Before You was, fortunately, the book I chose to read in order to take a (much needed) break from fantasy. What I wasn’t really expecting was to get the same amount of magic from a love story that you can get from a fantasy book.
