Me Before You

Me Before You - Jojo Moyes While you will end this novel feeling like you need a drink & a tissue you haven't ever read anything like it before. This novel made me look at our inaccessible world for quadriplegic or any wheel chair bound person. All that said, Louisa Clarke & Will Traynor's journey to friendship will have you laughing. These 2 people couldn't be anymore different if you imagined it yourself. With a host of interesting characters like Patrick Louisa's boyfriend she should have never let make it to year one to Katrina her baby sister with the superiority complex whilst living at home as a college dropout.

Me Before You is an epic story of the fight to live life for yourself without being bullied into the life people want/expect for you. Louisa learns how to adult & Will learns humility. They each learn what it means to be unapologetically confident in saying no to those you love. Through it all you find yourself falling in love with all the characters. Will 's neurotic mother, his philandering father (may be disdain for this guy) & Louisa's very eccentric family. I spent half the novel wanting to shake the life out of Katrina. In the end you realize that I was me before you & I want to be me after you. Even if it hurts. This is a story about love in its purest form; unselfish.
