Goodreads Synopsis: 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.
If you know anything about me by now, you’d know that I read books based on recommendations and not by reading a synopsis of the book. (I also go by goodreads recommendations or by Oprah’s Book Club recommendations.) Anyway – I had started on this book and whilst I enjoyed the reading style, at first I thought I had gotten hold of a rather mediocre book, like a Harliquin romance, and that the book was getting rather predictable before it took such an unexpected turn.
Me Before You, is a devastatingly beautiful book. I would recommend it a thousand times over. The writing is simple, beautiful to read and my initial disappointment was nowhere to be seen by the end of the book. I can hardly explain how much this book affected me or how good the book is. But do read it, you won’t regret it.
