Praise for ME BEFORE YOU:
“When I finished this novel, I didn’t want to review it: I wanted to reread it. . . . Moyes’s story provokes tears that are redemptive, the opposite of gratuitous. Some situations, she forces the reader to recognize, really are worth crying over. . . . with Lou and Will she has created 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
“After finishing Jojo Moyes' ME BEORE YOU, you grasp why the novel, a word-of-mouth sensation from Britain, has been sold to 28 countries. . . . by turns 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”
“READ IT AND WEEP: Heartbreak collides with humor in Jojo Moyes’s Me Before You, about the romance between a quadriplegic and his hired caregiver.”
“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
“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. . . . Moyes writes well-developed characters, and it's impossible not to care about them. 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
"A hilarious, heartbreaking, riveting novel . . . I will stake my reputation on this book."
—Anne Lamott, People Magazine
"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’ 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."

When out of nowhere she loses her job,she has to find something new to help her family. The jobcenter suggest a caring job for a local young man and Lou isn't sure she can do it. It is a temporary assignment which would only last 6 months so she takes the risk and takes it. When she meets Will and realizes what her real job is aka giving him back his will to life her determination to do just that is spiked and she gives her best.
Will is a quadriplegic and his life is ruled by his body's condition. He's dependant on outside help and he hates every second of it. His life before the accident was a very active one- he was always looking for the next adrenaline high. A life full of adventures and risks. Now he has lost all of this including his will to live and he actually only waits for his suffering to end. He knows what he wants- his plan is to visit a hospiz in Switzerland to do what he wouldn't be allowed to do in his home-country.
There are so many things I adored in this book. I loved to see how realistically the relationship between Lou and Will developed.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
The basic storyline is that Lou Clerk, 26, loses her job in her little hometown and the only new job she can get is that of the carer of Will, a 35-year-old depressed and very cranky quadriplegic. She finds it hard to connect with him and even thinks of quitting the job but her family's situation won't allow for this.
Lou soon finds out that her job is really to keep Will from inflicting harm on himself. The rest of the story revolves around this topic.
It may be marketed as a romance novel, because slowly there are the first stirrings of tender feelings between Lou and Will. But there are really many more topics and the novel speaks of the right of individuals to live up to their full potential and not to be held back: by traumatic experiences, by poverty in Lou's case. It speaks about the need to respect the will of an individual, even if that be against common morals, in Will's case.
It is a novel about two people giving to each other what each of them needs most and to help them to respect their wishes about how they want to live.
SPOILER ALERT - in the next part I'm going to discuss some aspects of the ending, without giving it away. I will tell you whether I think it is a sad or happy ending.
Another reviewer said she cried her eyes out at the end. I did feel a few tears roll down my cheeks too.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
"Me Before You" is the type of book that will leave you an emotional mess and there is no way to stop it from happening. There have been books before this one that made me cry. But it was nothing like this. This one, left me sobbing, wailing and howling with the emotions. It's the type of story that will melt even the iciest heart.
The effect the book had on me is hard to put into words and even harder to believe. How can I feel so much for fictional characters? For a fictional story? And yet I did. I still do. I think I will for a long time.
The story is devastatingly beautiful and touching. It's full of moments that will open your heart and mind. That will change how you look at things, how you look at life. Some of those moments are fun and sweet, others are full of sadness and pain - but they all have one thing in common: They are full of love.
Not just love between two people, but love for life, for adventure, for freedom and for oneself.
Despite all the tears I cried, it's not all sad or negative. It's life - raw, intense, gritty but still filled with happiness, love and laughter. Maybe it's so touching because it's so real. Whatever the reason, it makes this a must-read.
There are so many hidden messages in the story, so many lessons to learn along with the characters. They make this book profound.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
