Me Before You by JoJo Moyes

 


I advise you to read this book!  Don't look into what it's about – that almost put me off reading it!  But thanks to the recommendations linked to Books You Loved, I did get it from the library.
This book is witty, wise, heart-warming and a quick read
This book is not maudlin.
This book is a bit intense right at the end – have a tissue ready – but up till then not so much.  
Some of the blurb on the back of this book seemed completely wrong – maybe they were comments about another novel?
I'm glad I read it.  The only slight criticism I have is that some of the changes in point of view are a bit clumsy and you can end up wondering whose mind you are in.  But this is just a tiny thing in what is a very good book.
