Hi guys! This is Kester here. Welcome to LILbooKlovers, and this is the first ever post! Here’s the first ever review! (You can see this also on Goodreads.)
Rating: 9 out of 10 stars
“Me Before You” is the story of a recently unemployed girl who gets hired to become the caretaker of Will Traynor, a quadriplegic who has a grim outlook on life. After finding out about his plans on assisted suicide, Louisa, along with Will’s parents and her sister, tries to convince him that he could have a better life even in a wheelchair, but this starts to affect her personal life with both her family and her boyfriend.
I am not a romance reader, yet I definitely enjoyed this book! This is one of the only books that has ever made me cry (or about to cry- I couldn’t since I finished the book at school). It has both humor and sorrow incorporated into the storyline, and I became more engaged closer to the ending. I think if I could read this again in one sitting, I could enjoy it much better, but I still did nevertheless! I honestly was going to rate this 8 stars until the ending, but the ending changes your entire perception. It really does, and I wish I can spoil it, but I’m not going to do that. “Me Before You” is book even non-romance readers can enjoy, and I’m excited for the movie coming out in June!
- Really emotional and heartbreaking
- The romance
- The plot twists
- Will’s and Louisa’ humor
- Can get a little boring.
Recommendation: YES! It’s for anybody!
