About this item


Book Synopsis

USA Today's top 100 books to read while stuck at home social distancing

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Giver of Stars, discover the love story that captured over 20 million hearts in Me Before You, After You, and Still Me.

They had nothing in common until love gave them everything to lose . . .

Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life--steady boyfriend, close family--who has barely been farther afield than their tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex-Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life--big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel--and now he's pretty sure he cannot live the way he is.

Will is acerbic, moody, bossy--but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected. When she learns that Will has shocking plans of his own, she sets out to show him that life is still worth living.

A Love Story for this generation and perfect for fans of John Green's The Fault in Our Stars, Me Before You brings to life two people who couldn't have less in common--a heartbreakingly romantic novel that asks, What do you do when making the person you love happy also means breaking your own heart?

Review Quotes

Praise for ME BEFORE YOU:

A hilarious, heartbreaking, riveting novel . . . I will stake my reputation on this book.
--Anne Lamott, People Magazine

"When I finished this novel, I didn't want to review it: I wanted to reread it. . . . an affair to remember."
--New York Times Book Review, Liesl Schillinger

"An unlikely love story . . . To be devoured like candy, between tears."
--O, The Oprah Magazine

"Funny and moving but never predictable."
--USA Today (****)

"Funny, surprising and heartbreaking, populated with characters who are affecting and amusing . . . This is a thought-provoking, thoroughly entertaining novel that captures the complexity of love"
--People Magazine

"Masterful . . . a heartbreaker in the best sense . . . Me Before You is achingly hard to read at moments, and yet such a joy."
--New York Daily News

"READ IT AND WEEP: Heartbreak collides with humor in Jojo Moyes's Me Before You."
--Good Housekeeping

"There are books that you cannot put down. There are also books where you become so invested in the characters, you force yourself to stop reading to prolong the experience because you don't want the story to end, and that's what can happen when you read Jojo Moyes' latest book, Me Before You. . . . You'll find yourself laughing, smiling, feeling angry and, yes, crying. My only suggestion: Me Before You should be sold with a pack of tissues."
--The Associated Press

Jojo Moyes has written the perfect modern love story. You will be astonished at what you feel, and what you hope for when you are forced to face the possibility of your own dreams. It's that good. Read it now.
--Adriana Trigiani, New York Times bestselling author of The Shoemaker's Wife

"ME BEFORE YOU is a delicious surprise--funny and hopeful and heartbreaking, the kind of story that will keep you turning pages into the night. Lou Clark and Will Traynor will capture your heart and linger there long after their story has ended.
--Eleanor Brown, New York Times bestselling author of The Weird Sisters

"Some books make you stop and think, compel you to examine your own take on life or your position or stand on an issue. Jojo Moyes's Me Before You will surprise you--it is impossible not to put yourself in the characters' shoes and you will find yourself thinking about the choices you might make if life changed in an instant. I loved it."
--Lee Woodruff, New York Times bestselling author of Those We Love Most

A lovely novel, both nontraditional and enthralling.
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Moyes' twisting, turning, heartbreaking novel raises provocative moral questions while developing a truly unique relationship between two people brought together by chance. With shades of David Nicholls' beloved One Day, Me Before You is the kind of book you simply can't put down--even when you realize you don't want to see it end. . . . A big-hearted, beautifully written story that teaches us it is never too late to truly start living."

Moyes' latest is made heartwarming, thanks to the vibrancy of its main characters, both of whom will keep readers on their toes with their chemistry and witty repartee. . . .humorous and romantic through and through.
--Romantic Times

Got this book for a YMCA older adult book club discussion group. Did not expect much, but have been pleasantly surprised at how well the author weaves disability issues into her narrative. Characters are engaging and believable. I have worked with the disabled in several settings and now am facing limitations in my own life as are many of my relatives and YMCA older adult friends. This book makes you think about issues of quality of life and making the most of what is still available to enjoy in the world. It helps one focus on what is important at any age. And it is a fun read with important ideas skillfully woven into the characters thoughts and actions. What all good fiction does for us......enjoyable, but also makes us think and reflect.

Okay so I'm just gonna say this.....don't get your hopes up for a common fairy tale romance book because this isn't it. For better words this book so realistic it makes you question the way you think about things and people. But over it was a really great book

This book was such a good read, and I don't say that lightly! I am pretty critical when it comes to books...but this is the best book I have read since The Brothers K (another great book btw). I ordered this book for my mom for Mothers Day as she loves a good read as well, and she couldn't put it down! She read it in a day and a half!
