Today I have just a book review of Me Before You by Jojo Moyes because it was the type of book where I was just to invested, involved, and emotional to even think about a snack.
Let me start by saying that I was NOT going to read this book! No way, no how, not my thing!! and then I did….read it…eventually and I am SOOOOOOOO glad I did!!!! Beautifully written and touching and heart breaking and joyful it is a story of heart and life and love and finding your way and your life.
Louisa Clark has lost her job and Wes has lost pretty much everything as he is now a quadriplegic. Louisa is hired to be his companion and even though he is a bit of an ‘arse’ (his words) they eventually stumble into a routine. They challenge each other to look at the world and life in new ways. But when Louisa overhears that Wes is planning assisted suicide at the end of the 6 months she is hired for she is stunned and then determined to convince him to live. Wes is equally stunned when he realized Louisa has never ventured far beyond their town and her family and he is determined that she challenges herself to step out of her comfort zone.
Read it!!! It is a 4 star read and worth all the emotions it makes you feel!!
