Me Before You Review
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 his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they're going to change the other for all time.
So I read this book. I know this isn't something that you usual see as something that I have read here on my blog. I do have to admit, I enjoyed this book to be honest. I didn't cry like every other human who had read this book.
I found Lou to be really average. Sure she was kind of a fashion nutjob or whatever, but she was a rather dull character. I didn't really enjoy her point of view sometimes, since it sometimes got boring compared to other characters I have read from.
Will was pretty okay too. I found his feelings for what happened to him to be realistic and I enjoyed him as a character more than Lou. Will was a very complex character, with very conflicting feelings about everything that is going on.
4 out of 5 stars
