This book review was originally published on The Wordy Nerd Books on August 28, 2015.
The topic of caring for disabled people is often one that is difficult to approach. It is often not easy on the caretaker or the patient but Jojo Moyes does an amazing job at exploring the many facets of the life of a disabled person and a caretaker in Me Before You. She easily pulls the reader in emotionally and makes you wonder what life would be like if you were facing the same circumstances. I found myself in love with both of the main characters. When they were sad, my heart was absolutely broken for them. When they were happy, I found myself rooting for them.
This book does often involve some pretty hard topics that most people have strong opinions about but I still found it to be a beautiful book. It is one that will probably affect you on an emotional level but I definitely think it is worth a read. Moyes writes well and her work is easy to read. I found myself not wanting to put this book down. Overall, I rated Me Before You four out of five stars. It’s a great book but be prepared to feel all the feels!
