Book Review Wednesday: Me Before You

I haven't read a typical fiction book in quite some time. I've been obsessed with career books, self help books, and memoirs. I don't remember the last time I read (not listened) to an actual book.

Well my goodness, I'm so glad I rediscovered fiction because I completely fell in love with this novel.

"Me Before You" has been on my to-read list for quite some time and after seeing the trailer for the movie coming out this summer, I immediately purchased and downloaded it to my Nook.

I read it within a few days, and one Saturday afternoon I read over 300 pages.

That is how good it was and how in need I was of a good story.

I will admit, I think the story was a tad bit slow but it kept me wanting more.


A little summary on the novel... it takes place in London and it centers around Louisa Clark who becomes a caregiver for Will, a paralyzed man who has given up the will to live (no pun intended). They form an unlikely bond and the story unravels from there.

There aren't a lot of twists and turns like you would expect from an incredible fiction novel. It's more simple with incredible characters and a story that entices you in unexplainable ways. Will and Louisa are so deeply different but so deeply the same, it's borderline heart breaking.

The book is also insanely funny. I found myself chuckling throughout the entire thing. I also cried throughout a lot of it too.

The ending was not what I expected and I kept waiting for it to change and it didn't.

"Me Before You" is such an easy, good read. It was a great, heart wrenching story that was fun, funny, and down right beautiful. If you loved the trailer, you will fall desperately in love with the book!

Also, Me Before You has a sequel called "After You" which I really want to read as well.

Have you read "Me Before You"? What is your favorite book of the moment?
