Summary: 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 into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they're going to change the other for all time.

If you ask me why it took me so long to start reading this book I couldn’t answer. I’m glad I finally picked it up, though because I absolutely loved it. I think it might be my favorite read of 2015.
First of all I really liked the characters and the fact they seemed real to me right from the start.
Louisa is a very interesting character. She’s quirky and positive despite everything and I couldn’t help but to like her. She was thrown into a situation she knew nothing about but she still did the best she could with it
Will is, understandably, a very complex character but I don’t think it’s that hard to understand his point of view ore where he’s coming from. I enjoyed reading about his relationship with Louisa and how she was able to make him a little happier.
I also liked most of the secondary characters and believe all of them brought something to the story and made the reader understand the main characters and their actions and reactions a little bit better.
I believe this is a hard topic to write about but Jojo Moyes did a wonderful job of it, as I have come to believe she always does. Plotwise, the story develops at a wonderful pace but I really do believe this story is all about the characters and their development.
All in all, Me Before You is a beautifully written story, with amazing characters you can’t help but to root for. I was pretty sure I knew how this book was going to end but that didn’t stop me from being happy and sad as I read it.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys contemporary romances or simply wants to read a great story with strong characters.
