Review on "Me Before You" by Jojo Moyes

Me Before You (Me Before You, #1)Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Honestly, the book didn't live up to my expectations. When I read its synopsis, it sort of excited me and took me no time to order this book.
'Me Before You' is the first novel I have read of Jojo Moyes.
The story is about two individuals who fall into each other lives and then rest is history.
Will Traynor is a quadriplegic who has lost his legs in a bike accident whereas Louisia Clark is an independent 27 year old who has just lost her job. She gets a job of being a care taker to Will and that's where their bond starts. Louisia has been appointed to change Will's mind as he wants to kill himself and get out of the misery.
The story unfolds further and we see how Lou affects Will's life and make him does adventurous stuff which he hasn't done in a long while.
Apparently, both of them fall for each other but Lou fails to change his mind. All the time while reading this book I kept thinking when will Will really be treated and stand on his own legs. Unfortunately that time never comes.
Without adding any more spoilers, I'd want readers to read the book and judge with their own perspective.
The movie adaptation of this novel is under process and it goes without saying that I'd watch it for sure.
Jojo Moyes is also working on its sequel namely "After You".
Definitely looking forward to it.
