Me Before You

Once again, I forget where the recommendation for this book came to me. Either way, here it is.


Good Reads' 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.

What I Thought: While that is a very flimsy explanation of the plot, this is a great summer read! It kept my attention all throughout traveling a couple weeks ago when I was in Florida. Thwarting distractions in the airport is not an easy thing to do but Moyes' story succeeded. Lou and Will are intriguing characters that play well off of each other. If you're looking for a bit of an off-beat love story (I suppose you can call it that), this is a good one!
