This cover doesnt capture the magnitude of this story at all. To me it says girlish and childish. I think it attracts the wrong kind of reader, without knowing anything about the story or reading the summary, i would instantly think chick lit and would probably pass on it if I saw it in the bookstore. . I think there must be a better way to market the book. This is such a beautiful story and I dont think the cover conveys that to the audience. This is one of those books you simply must read. It is though provoking, enlightening, powerful, moving, ere are not enough adjectives for me to describe how wonderfully written this novel.
Summary of, after, you
One of the things I loved best about the novel was that it was also a beautiful fairytale of sorts. I loved having the story set in the shadows of the castle, for me that added a lot of charm and romance to freaky the tale. Then we had lou, the poor commoner and Will the rich prince. Wills character was so well written that after a while i started to forget that he was handicap. He was charming, witty, charismatic, and tender. The relationship dynamics between lou and Will were powerful, i loved how they evolved as a couple. Employer/employee to friends, to love. A very moving, heartfelt love. I thought the ending was appropriate. I struggled with it a bit when I finished the book, but I have to admit, will convinced me in the end. There was one small thing that bothered me about the book and that was the cover.
I say that not to discourage anyone from reading it but I think the reader should be aware this is not a light easy read. This book really made me think about what it would be like to have your life alter drastically. I found myself wondering what I would do if I were in Wills positionor if he were my boyfriend what would I do? How would I cope? The book addressed a lot of questions that one might have about being a para or quadriplegic and ones I never thought about before, for instance. I had no gps idea that a wheelchair could be fitted with different tires for various makes sense but I just never had reason to think about that before. I really felt lous anxiety over taking Will out ter their first outing, i too started actively thinking of various obstacles they might encounter on their next trip. When i am actively engaged like that, that is how i know its a well written book.
Will and his family realize that lou is quite different from the average girl. She is vibrant, cheerful, quirky, and full of terallylou loves dressing in bright, unique ensembles from the second hand store. The Traynor family hopes that lou will be more of a companion for Will, someone who will help him find himself again and find his will to rhaps not fall in love with him, but simply to help him adjust to his new life. As Will and lou get to know each other, lou discovers a dark secret that will change all of their lives forever. I am having a hard time classifying this book, ive seen it listed in a couple of categories but I cant say that I would agree with some of the classifications. I dont know that I would call it a romance ere are surly romantic themes and relationships but that is not what this story is about. I wouldnt call it chick lit ick lit implies that this is a story told in an airy most whimsical if you will, and it is anything but that. I would have to say i would put it under the general category of contempo lit. This novel was truly heart t a light read by any means.

After, you, jojo, moyes - 125 Pages
Will and lou make such an interesting, and unlikely pair, one that circumstance brought together. Reading their banter and watching their relationship grow and change was so enjoyable. It flowed so well, and was so believable. I loved that there were moments both good and bad showcased in the story, because that helped me see all the dimensions of their relationship. The thing about this book is that you need to go into it not knowing most of the details, and I don't want to spoil that for you in my review. All I will say is that I finished the book not only emotional, but also full of new thoughts. I had an immediate reaction to the dilemma that surfaces in the novel, but I was challenged in my thinking at many turns and finished feeling slightly perturbed. There are many things to consider in the light of the situation, paper and yet.
I sensed that beneath all that was an indomitable spirit, one filled with vivacity and color and energy and positivity. She's definitely a othello character I could see myself being friends with in real life, mostly because we share a positive outlook. It was fun to see how she was coaxed out of where she was comfortable, and forced to embrace all these new things - that's always a good experience (if slightly hard and painful) for anyone to go through. Will, on the other hand, was a character that I didn't immediately like. He's a bit obnoxious and surly, but that's probably reasonable considering that his accident left him paralyzed for life. That's definitely a big change for someone who once used to be active and adventurous, and it takes a toll on his emotional well-being. Underneath his contempt for his body and his anger at the unfairness of his situation, will has a good heart though, and it shines again and again in this novel. Especially when it comes to lou.
translates well no matter where in the world you're from, i do like noting the British details included in the novel. They transported me to an entirely different place as I read, and i always appreciate a novel being able to do that and do it well. Alongside the British influence, the characters practically popped off the page as I read. I remember thinking that I could have been friends with lou or that I'd known people with an attitude like will's as I read, and I loved that the book brought these two to life so very perfectly. It easily swayed me into being concerned with how their stories - together and apart - would turn out. Lou is certainly quite a character. Even though she begins the novel as a bit timid, regimented and entirely too used to and content with her comfort zone, i liked her right away.
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 into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they're going to change the other for all time. I assignment honestly didn't know what to expect from. Me before you before i dove into my copy on a random Saturday afternoon. I went in pretty blind, only having read reviews from. Rachel, hannah and, cass and knowing that all three of them had enjoyed this one a lot. Me before you proved to be an addicting read, one that i only set down to eat, sleep and go to work. I really ended up enjoying the book, although it left me surprisingly thoughtful when I finished.

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 essay Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live.
