Goodreads Book Description
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.

Movie Description:
Young and quirky Louise “Lou” Clark moves from one job to the next to help her family make ends meet. Her cheerful attitude is put to the test when she becomes a caregiver for Will Traynor, a wealthy young banker left paralyzed from an accident two years earlier. Will’s cynical outlook starts to change when Louisa shows him that life is worth living. As their bond deepens, their lives and hearts change in ways neither one could have imagined.

My Review:
Me Before You is certainly worth watching/reading. By challenging our life perspectives every step of the way, these characters encourage us to live boldly and seize the opportunities passing by.

Lou is a bubbly, charming, bright young woman with determination to help support her family life.
Will however is dashing, cynical, sarcastic and very headstrong with his decisions.
The casting of these two characters was brilliantly chosen, the beautiful Emilia Clarke and the handsome Sam Claflin. The on-screen chemistry between these actors was wonderful to watch, the character development and journey they both go on was nothing short of memorable.

On a final note, a great deal of gratitude ought to be shown towards Jojo Moyes for raising questions about the reality of assisted suicide and physical disabilities. I don’t know of many authors who have been able to make a statement such as the one Jojo Moyes makes in Me Before You.

P.S. Bring tissues with you! You’ll definitely need them!
