Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
Excerpt

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.



Genre

Contemporary

Review

I have never cried so hard on bed after finishing a book. I felt so angry and conflicted and not even sure how should I rate this.

This is also the first time that I wanted to hurl my kindle on the nearest wall for such an ending. Honestly, I really didn't see it coming, because I always read romance and they will be an HEA. The cover is PINK and girlie!

In the end I gave it a 5 stars, because the story is so moving and I keep reading it until 4am just to know the ending. And then i cried. I wish I didn't actually pick up this book because i feel so depressed right know and this story is going to stick in my mind for quite some time.


Spoiler

In the end, I'm happy for Will because he ending his misery. But I also hated him because he is so selfish that he left his family behind, knowing they suffer the consequences after his action. I even felt that he should try to have a further with Louisa.

I thought this book is to encourage handicap people to live a full life. But in the end it seems like handicap people should just.... what?.... killed themselves?!?! I hate this.

But then, I remember my grandpa use to be really sick. Our family member think is best for him to go instead of helping him to survive. I totally advocated for it. I even told my mum, if I'm in coma, you have to let me go. I doesn't want to suffer like this either.
 


Rating 4.5/5
