Gurdeep review
Me before you by Jojo Moyes

The blurb
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.

What i say
This is one of those books that will stay with you for days after you read it.

Louisa is a naive and lost girl, who doesn’t know where her life is going.

Losing her loving job at The Buttered Bun cafe, life couldn’t get any worse. A job opportunity suddenly comes her way and this is where her life changes. Louisa meets Will, a quadriplegic who is moody and arrogant. Will was once a powerful man who led an active

A motorcycle accident leaves him determined to end his life, he is depressed and refuses to live out the rest of his life in the condition he is in. There is no way out for him, his mind is made up.

Louisa is hired thinking she is to watch him and care for his needs, but her jobs involves so much more… she has six months to change Will’s mind. Can Louisa succeed in her mission?

They grow fond of each other, but is that enough?

The story of this book deals with a very sensitive subject which does involve humour and romance.

I connected with the characters and loved their strength throughout their entwining  This book is emotional, heartfelt and heartbreaking.

This is the first book i have read by JoJo Moyes and it passed with flying colours, i shall be looking at other titles written by this author.

Me before you is beautifully written, i couldn’t put it down and when i did, i couldn’t wait to pick it up again.

When this book is finished, it leaves you thinking ‘what would i do’…?
