Me Before You

(10)

DISCOVER THE FIRST BOOK IN THE TRILOGY THAT CAPTURED A MILLION HEARTS . . .

Will needed Lou as much as she needed him, but will her love be enough to save his life?

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 teashop 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.

If you loved Me Before You, find out what happens next in After You and the brand-new book Still Me . . .

Rezension
'When I finished this novel, I didn't want to review it: I wanted to reread it. Which might seem perverse if you know that for most of the last hundred pages I was dissolved in tears. Jojo Moyes, the writer who produced this emotional typhoon, knows very well that Me Before You ... is a 'real weepy'. Moyes's story provokes tears that are redemptive, the opposite of gratuitous. Some situations, she forces the reader to recognise, really are worth crying over ... An affair to remember' - Liesl Schillinger The New York Times Book Review

'Destined to be the novel that friends press upon each other more than any other next year, it is a tremendous example of what commercial fiction can do when in the hands of an expert. Moyes does a majestic job of conjuring a cast of characters who are charismatic, credible and utterly compelling; Lou and Will are a couple who readers will take to their hearts as they did One Day's Emma and Dex' - The Independent

'Poignant and beautifully written, this book will stay with you long after you've put it down' - Star Magazine

'Funny, believable and heartbreaking, this is sure to be the weepy of 2012' - Woman's Own

'A compelling portrait of an unlikely couple' - The Independent

'A perceptive and moving tale'- The Independent

'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 Beautifully written' - The Sun

'Another powerful love story. A deftly plotted narrative populated with likeable engaging characters ... a bittersweet story about love, learning and letting go. It's a tremendous read and I loved it'- Daily Mail

'Heartbreaking, soul-searching and utterly compelling' - Easy Living

'Keep the tissues close as Jojo Moyes returns with Me Before You, a heartbreaking yet ultimately uplifting tale about the relationship between an embittered quadriplegic man and the carer who is trying to give him a reason to live' - Good Housekeeping

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

'Read it and weep: Heartbreak collides with humour in Jojo Moyes's Me Before You Good Housekeeping USA Jojo Moyes has done it again with this funny, touching tale that is impossible to put down. Make sure you have a box of tissues to hand! -Candis

'At last, a new Moyes novel - and it's a triumph. Her story of love blossoming in the most unlikely of ways packs such an emotional punch, you'll need a box of tissues' - Elle

'Jojo Moyes's poignantly romantic tales have readers streaming their way through boxes of Kleenex ... Me Before You is compelling reading...a profound, fundamental, thought-provoking conundrum lies at the heart of the story, a huge moral dilemma, explored with great fictional finesse. Devotees of Jojo Moyes and newcomers alike will settle into this entertaining book with gusto' - Sunday Express

'A compelling novel of life and death decisions and unlikely affections. It's magical and heartbreaking, but doesn't shy away from difficult emotional realities. Waterproof mascara essential Marie Claire Poignant ... heartfelt ... Me Before You, at it's heart, is about two people who properly listen to each other; it is something good' - The Independent on Sunday

'Romantic, thought-provoking tear-jerker than you won't be able to put down Woman & Home A disarmingly moving love story ... a lovely novel, both nontraditional and enthralling' - Publishers Weekly

One of the most beautiful and heartbreaking stories I've ever read!
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 04.10.2018

She loved her job in the cafe so much and couldn't see herself working anywhere else. But she applies for the job as a carer for the Trainor family eventhought she has never worked as a carer befor or even known a person who were disabled. She thinks she would be the right person for this job because she is a very friendly and warm hearted person who can work with everyone. And then she gets to know Will Trainor... He is a very bad person, unfriendly, tough in other words an arse. But Louisa will not give up especially not now because she needs this job more then ever because her father has lost his job too and now it's on her to feed the family. And besides she doesn't want to give Will his will and quit. Time flies by and they get to know each other and Lou finds out a very dark secret about Will and is willing to help him no matter what it takes... Wow! I read this book a few years ago and can't believe that I didn't liked it then. This story is so beautiful and sad in the same way and i can't describe how much I love this book. It's a perfect story for a cold fall or winter day. If you haven't read this story already please do it because if you like love stories, this is the book you have to read!

Wundervolle Geschichte ...Buch selbst leider mit kleinen Makeln
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Erlangen am 11.03.2018

Ich besitze das Buch bereits auf deutsch und liebe es und da dachte mir, dass ich es mir doch gleich auch noch auf englisch zu lege. Bereits bei der Ankunft hatte das Buch einen kleinen Mangel - unter waren ein paar der letzten Seiten an der Seite eingedrückt, aber sowas kann ja auch beim Lagern passieren. Was mich eher traurig stimmt, ist, dass sich die dünne durchsichtige Folie, die auf dem gesamten Cover ist, bereits nach dem ersten Mal Lesen an den Seiten des Covers löst. Ich hatte bis jetzt noch keine Bücher, auf welchen so eine Folie klebte, aber dennoch finde ich das irgendwie schade. Deswegen nur 4 Sterne

Me before you (ein ganzes halbes Jahr) der Inhalt ist ergreifend, regt immer wieder zum Nachdenken an, fördert viel Verständnis. Ich finde es etwas langatmig, vom Thema Sterbehilfe sehr interessant, das eigentliche Problem wird zu wenig thematisiert und besprochen, trotzdem fesselt es mich, und ich bin gespannt auf das Folgebuch „me after you“.
