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.

Another fantastic read from the brilliant Jojo Moyes. As soon as I picked it up and started to read I got really absorbed into the characters and location of the story.A totally believable love story with lots of emotional ups and downs.This story takes you through with two very different people who fall in love and have to face a very difficult decision. Its got very funny moments and very sad moments but altogether it is another masterpiece of writing from Jojo Moyes. I can t wait for the next book in September. Me Before You, I really loved it.
more mojo for your jojo...is me before you the perfect unassuming, all thrashing, bashing read?

Me Before You - Jojo Moyes
Advantages: very easy on the eye..beautiful story simply put
Disadvantages: tackled a very difficult subject
more mojo than you could throw at lou's tights...more jojo than you could push the most reluctant of readers to open their eyes, turn the pages and read.
so go on, indulge yourself..get a little lost in the plot of the will he wont he..
this book from beginning to end is a soulful read. its lightness belies the seriousness of the dilemma faced by its participants. the story (for them at least) is a life changing one and for the reader it is indeed very compelling.. tearful...humouress..an all encompassing throw that hits you square in the stomach and will not allow you to breathe until you reach the end.. quite a book then i hear you say?.. one nods and admits that although it isn't the mayor of casterbridge, the subject matter is just as challenging and the characters are just as real and flawed but who, although challenged, ultimately win the day.
it brings up 'the' most daring of topics..what does a man do when he is stuck in a wheelchair as a quadraplegic with no hope of recovery? How does a family, faced with the strains of a marriage already doomed to fail, cope with the knowledge of their sons impending mortality?... enter lou... a vibrant, dress fussed, stressed out delightful scatterbrain who tries to hold it all together for them..
at first they all hate each other and lou wants to pack it in but circumstances pull her into this families life and will's in particular until she can't pull away.. at times she runs the risk of jeopardising her own happiness but then while searching to fulfil another's happiness finds her own.
Me Before You made me laugh, made me cry but its ultimate message is to listen and to try and understand what another person might need from life. the challenge ultimately is to be brave enough to accept them, even when they are totally against your own wishes and in looking at another's life - to be brave enough to have and want a life of your own.
Summary: more mojo than you could throw at lou's tights...more jojo than you can read and not be moved
i loved the book it actually brought tears to my eyes, it was sweet and romantic and through out the book i hoped that Lou and Will could be together but when i realised what the plans actually were i felt the same way Lou did.
this book really gripped me and i read it in 2 days since i wasnt able to put it down.
u really get attached to the characters and that makes it even sadder but on a whole the book was AMAZING and i really enjoyed reading it!
