Me Before You: A Review

Goodreads (Descriptions):

Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.

What Lou doesn't know is she's about to lose her job or that knowing what's coming is what keeps her sane.

Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he's going to put a stop to that.

What Will doesn't know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they're going to change the other for all time.

My Review:

This book has taken my heart and shredded into a million and twenty pieces. I can't even. How do I even review this book?

You know, what got me to read this book was the previews for this movie. I read it before the movie came out earlier this year, and then all my roomies at college took it and read it just as quickly as I did. And basically, we all feel the same way. It has taken our hearts.

I'm stalling because I honestly don't know how to review this. From the previews, Lou Clark is NOT who I expected her to be. I was expecting someone who was completely care free and lived life on the edge.

Well, I was wrong. She has so much more depth than I thought. First of all, the characters are way older than I thought. Clark is 26 and Will is around 35. Clark has done basically nothing with her life, she's worked at one cafe for ages until she loses her job. Which of course, after trying a million of other jobs, she begins working for the Turner's.

And Will hates her. Haha! Oh gosh, I love the banter between him and Clark. It made my life and made me fall in love with them. They fit so perfectly together.

Seriously, I love their relationship. They are so obviously in love with each other. And it's a gradual falling. It takes them months to actually discover they like and then love each other. Oh my! And the lines in the previews are the exact lines from the book.

If you want a realistic love story, read this book. If you want your whole heart to be taken away by it, read it.

I give it a 5 out of 5!


  1. I decided to read the book based on the previews too! I actually like the book a lot better than I liked the movie, in the end, but I'm glad that the movie previews got me to pick the book up!
