{Review} ME BEFORE YOU by Jojo Moyes



I didn't see the movie. I wanted to read the book first. And Social Book Co gave me my chance to read it when they sent me a copy to read!

I think most of you may already have seen the movie or read the book. Unputdownable. Page-turner. I couldn't stop reading. All those phrases have been used to describe this book...

And you know what? THEY WERE NOT WRONG. I was immediately engrossed with Louisa and her unemployment troubles. Her family annoyed me with how they treated her. Her sister seems like a spoiled little shit. And yet there is this glue that clearly states they're family.

Will...so dynamic in the beginning and what is described makes him vibrant and lifelike. And I actually gasped at the moment of his accident in the very beginning.

What follows is a mother's desperate attempt to keep her son, a son she doesn't recognize, a shell of who he was previously. Louisa, highly unqualified, and yet perfectly qualified for the mother's idea. And it's so real. All the emotions, the misgivings, the doubts, the growth, are just perfect. I kept reading and reading and in the end, sobbing. I see why this book was popular. I see why it was termed a romance. I see why they made a movie. I glimpsed a peek of the next book and I don't know if I want to read it because this ending...this ending leaves me wanting and I can fill in the future myself as we often do with books we read.
