Me Before You

(6)

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.

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

'This truly beautiful story made us laugh, smile and sob like a baby - you simply have to read it Closer Compelling, moving and absorbing. It's also a real weepie' - Daily Express

'Me Before You is a page-turner that sucks the reader into caring about the fate of the heroine ... By turns funny and moving but never predictable. The plot contains a number of surprises and raises thoughtful questions' -USA Today

'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

Ein Buch das im Gedächtnis bleibt!
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Traunkirchen am 07.05.2014

Zutiefst tragisch, aber auch immer wieder witzig, ein Buch wie das Leben so spielt :-) Mir hat's irrsinnig gut gefallen, Jojo Moyes hat es bewundernswerterweise geschafft, ein sehr umstrittenes Thema von den Standpunkten aller Betroffenen aus darzustellen.

Das Thema Liebe und Behinderung, das Thema Sterbehilfe und der Umgang von Menschen miteinander ist hier in Bestform und absolut liebevoll in eine lebensnahe und "echte" Geschichte eingeflochten. Es sind sympathische Figuren, die sich auf ihre ganz eigene Weise finden und zum aussergwöhnlichsten Liebespaar entwickeln. Man freut sich mit, man fühlt mit und leidet mit. Es dauerte Wochen bis ich das nächste Buch in die Hand nehmen konnte.

Unbelievable
von Jess am 26.04.2014

( I am sorry for every mistake. I have to say that this is my first review to a book. ) ... ( I am sorry for every mistake. I have to say that this is my first review to a book. ) This book is amazing. It tells an unbelievable story about two people who would have never met if there hadn´t been Wills accident. I´ve fallen in love with the characters- the whole story. When i started to read it, I couldn´t believe that this book was standing in my bookshelf for a whole year. This book contains everything- friendship, love, loss, saying goodbye to the one you love and the strengh to finally start to live your life. When you love books which touch your heart then you should definetly read it. It does not just touch your heart- it goes right through to your soul. But a warning: Keep some handkerchiefs in reach.

"Me Before You" is the first book in a heartbreaking duology by British author Jojo Moyes. This is the story of Lou and Will, two people who couldn't be more different, yet seem to just be perfect for each other. Lou is a bubbly, colorful young woman who ends up as a carer for quadriplegic Will after losing her previous job. Due to a road accident and its consequences Will isn't quite as cheerful as Lou, on the contrary: He wants to terminate his life. At first, Lou is shocked to find out that she was essentially hired to be on suicide watch, but soon she decides to help Will find something that's worth living for. In the following months both their lives change drastically, but will those changes be enough to make Will rethink his decision? Going into this novel I expected it to be a dramatic love story, because that's the impression I got when I heard about "Me Before You" from other people. Of course, that is a big part of the story, but it is so much more! It deals with the daily struggles that disabled people have to cope with, ranging from impolite stares to the inability to access public transportation without help and constant paternalism. Furthermore, the author tackles the rather complicated issue that is assisted suicide. If this book won't keep you thoughtful for a while, I don't know which one will. The characters, primarily Lou and Will, of course, I absolutely loved. The only one I stongly disliked was Lou's sister. She was just a little bit too self-centered for my taste and thus got on my nerves a lot. Due to a couple of lenghty scenes it is "just" a four-star-book for me, although I am not quite sure if it seemed lengthy to me due to the writing style or the way the audiobook was read. I am looking forward to reading "After You" and also can't wait to see how this book comes to life on the big screen. I recommend this audiobook (as well as every other edition, of course) to readers who enjoy grand love stories as well as controversial topics that stay with you long after you've finished the story.
