Review: Me Before You

em quarta-feira, 24 de junho de 2015 |

Normally, I don’t fancy books like this one, actually, I find them quite depressing, because, when I read, I do it to forget my problems and to dive into a world in which everything, one way or the other, ends with a happy ever after.

Me before you brings us the story of Lou and Will. Lou is a girl who likes to have everything planned, she even know how many steps she has to give from the bus stop to her home for God’s sake! Will was a very active person who finds itself confine to a wheelchair, quadriplegic, after a terrible accident.
Will has lost is will to live and Lou has lost her job. Now their lives are entwined and Lou has six months to change Will’s mentality.

However, while this is a good book, it’s one of those in which you know that it’s going to hurt you, you can feel the darkness rising threatening your happy ending, you just don’t mind, because the book it’s fascinating.
I don’t know I will be keen on reading the next but this one, really made me think about what I’m doing with my life and how quick you can have everything taken away from you.
This is tale about love, loss, grief and anger definitely worth reading. Personally I find this book very inspirational.

Good work Jojo Moyes.
