Me Before You was not on my radar prior to the movie coming out and various book reviewers talking about it because of that. I picked it up to see what the hype was all about. I found it to be an enjoyable read.
Me Before You is the story of a woman who takes a job being a care taker for a quadriplegic who, prior to his accident, had been a very physical man with a high powdered job. It doesn't start off in a promising fashion, but they eventually make friends (as you'd expect). Rosie tries hard to convince Will there is something to live for still.
I thought Me Before You was very readable. The only parts I didn't like in reading it were the few chapters from someone else's perspective. I found them disruptive and unnecessary. I didn't get as involved as I think a lot of readers did. I didn't, for example, cry, which I've heard most people do. I saw the end coming and was sad but also okay with it.
I don't know if I'll bother with the movie. Most of the time, I don't enjoy the adaptation and I think I'll just let this one stay a book for me.
