Me Before You
by Jojo Moyes
Genre: Literary Fiction
Review: Me Before You is an amazing, sublime, endearing, and sad novel. What literature should always be. It is well-written, humorous, compelling, with characters who you truly know, and want to know. Louisa Clark is a small-town girl in her twenties who has lived most of her life in one place. A steady boyfriend but no career, she lives with her parents. Meet Will, a quadriplegic who used to lead a glamorous life, who dares Lou to step out of her comfort zone, while she tries to save him from himself. The unlikeliest love story you will ever read.
Film news: The book will be made into a movie. Read the announcement on Entertainment Weekly. No casting news yet as far as I can tell.
If you loved the French movie, The Intouchables, read this book.
