It’s Fiction Friday again!
This week, we’re talking about a very popular book called ‘Me Before You’ by Jojo Moyes.
This book is relatively new (only published a few years ago), and has had ultimate success. It’s widely loved, and it’s film adaption is set for release very soon, with some big names including in making it.
The story is set in 2007, and tells of a girl who, in the face of recession and with no other job prospects, takes on a carer’s position, looking after and quadriplegic man who is just a little older than herself.
This book is likely not going to be what you expect it to be. I won’t give too much away, but the things that happen are not the happenings of a typical love story. This is a tale of love, and of loss, of individuality, of finding oneself, of freedom of thought, and of trying very hard to live life to its absolute fullest.
Upon reading this novel, it will likely generate some strong feeling in you. Whether you love it, or whether you hate it, you cannot ignore it.
If you’ve read, plan to read, or if perhaps this blogpost inspired you to pick up a copy of this book, do be sure to let me know what your thoughts on it were!
