Me Before You - Jojo Moyes
Read this book! If you want to be moved, read this book! If you want to swept up in a love story and get reminded what love is all about, read this book! If you want to remember what things really matter in life then read this book!
Louisa Clark, 27 is initially horrified by her new job, a six month contract caring for Will Traynor, a 35 year old quadriplegic and understabley suicidal ex-City whiz kid and ex-bon viver. But as the six months progress Louisa not only manages to enhance Will's quality of life but also allows him to enrich hers.
This book had me in floods of tears on several occasions including a very crowded tube journey. It's just fantastic, so good in fact that I felt real sadness as it ended, knowing that I wouldn't get to spend time with these fantastic characters anymore, they were literally ripping my heart out, what better metaphor can there be for the happiness and pain that true love can give you? I really must urge you again to read this book!
