Walkers Nurseries Book Club – Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

Me before youMe Before You by Jojo Moyes

‘Me Before You’ is the story of Will Traynor who is injured in an accident that leaves him paralysed and unable to do anything for himself. Lou Clark becomes his carer after losing her job and being in desperate need of money to support her family. The book follows the story of how Lou desperately tries to show him that there is something to live for. It soon becomes clear that the meaning of a happy ending is very different for each of them. The reader is drawn into the book and the lives of the characters. We debated the meaning of the title, but didn’t really come to any conclusion.

This book was very well received by the book club. Everyone enjoyed it and finished it. It was described as ‘superior chick lit’ by one member and ‘a thoroughly good read’ by another. Everyone was touched by the story and empathised with the two main characters. The story brought feelings of both happiness and sadness to the readers. The author managed to prevent the story becoming clichéd. I thought it was one of the best books that we have read. There is a sequel to the book and one member has read it and recommended it as another good read, so I look forward to reading it soon.

The book scored 9/10 and that score is highly deserved.
