Book Review: Me Before You, by Jojo Moyes

Don't be put off by the cover! Not that there's anything wrong with reading a story with a pink cover of course. No shame :-P Anyway, the book at hand – Me Before You by Jojo Moyes – was a good read. A love story with a difference. Not your typical girl meets boy and then the book ends. (Not that I've read any of those!) Believable characters here too. The main two characters are Louisa and Will. The first – Louisa – is a young, pretty ordinary personality who has no ambition nor desire to venture outside of her daily routine until the local cafe she works at closes down, permanently. The other – Will – is a young-ish, high-flying businessman condemned to quadriplegia following an unfortunate traffic accident and wanting to end his life. (A bit of a spoiler there but it's disclosed quite early in the book so surely you won't mind!) This book is about these two polar opposite personalities crossing paths and the influence and impact each has on the other.
