Me Before You Review

Me Before You is written from the first person perspective of Lou, the female protagonist. Lou is a really likeable character và I thoroughly enjoyed reading her narrative because she’s really funny & fearless but also sensitive & unique.

She is the sort of girl who wears yellow and black striped tights even though she’s twenty-seven and you can’t help but love her. I really connected with her character và felt both her happiness & her pain as I read this book.

There are a couple of chapters which give us an insight into the minds of some other characters including Will, Nathan (Will’s medical carer), Camilla (Will’s mother) & Katrina (Lou’s sister). The book starts off with a small chapter from Will’s perspective on the day of his accident so you really understand what Will was like before his accident và see the tremendous difference afterwards.

The story line of this novel is themost moving I have ever read. It makes you think about what it would really be lượt thích to be completely paralysed, which I doubt many people have seriously considered. This book gives you an insight into what life might belike for those with physical disabilities but also those around them.

Obviously I’m still nowhere neartrulyunderstanding the life of a quadriplegic, you never can unless if you experience it yourself. However, Me Before Youreally inspired me to find about more about how I can help those less fortunate than myself.

This isn’t the sort of book I usually read, in fact, I usually avoid ‘illness’-related books but I seriously regret keeping this book on my shelf, unread, for the past year.

This is a completely different sort of romance to any that I’ve read before because it doesn’t really involve any physical touching. It’s all about Lou & will connecting on an emotional level. You can see a connectiondeveloping between the main characters slowly, a real connection mind you, và not the whimsical ones you often find in romance books.

This is, without a doubt, the most beautiful & heartbreaking love story I have ever read in my entire life. This is the sort of love that creeps up on you when you least expect it. There was one moment whilst reading this that I actually started sobbing (full on sobbing) & I had to put the book down for five minutes whilst I got all my emotions out.

This was not the only time I cried whilst reading this novel, oh no, I was pretty much crying not stop for the entirety of the second half and this book touched my heart in a way that no other book has. In some ways, you could điện thoại tư vấn this an adult version of The Fault in Our Stars, as there are similar issues explored, but I was much more moved by Me Before You – if that’s even possible!

Lou & Will learn a lot from each other as the book progresses, so in turn, I learnt a lot too. Me Before Youcompletely changed perspective on quadriplegics, on life and on love. I cannot recommend this book enough, it is absolutely phenomenal và a must-read for everyone. I didn’t think that this sort of book was for me và now it’s my favourite book, so please give it a chance!

For teenage readers, if you liked TFIOS, then Me Before You is probably also up your street. For adult readers, anyone with a heart will love this book.
