Me Before You

The international bestselling phenomenon

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.

One of the most beautiful and heartbreaking stories I've ever read!

Jacqueline Waibel, Thalia-Buchhandlung Bürs

When Lou lost her job, she falls from all heavens. 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!

Tell Me Something Good

Sabrina Reiter, Thalia-Buchhandlung Wien, Donauzentrum

"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.

Wundervolle Geschichte ...Buch selbst leider mit kleinen Makeln

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 trauri... 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

ergreifend
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 02.12.2017
Bewertet: Einband: Taschenbuch

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...

This book has everything you wish for: It's funny, romantic, tragic and sad all in one. Jojo Moyes has the talent to wrap a controversial topic in a wonderful story that you will never forget. Readers who don't want the typical love story and who aren't afraid of shedding a few tears will love this book!
