Review: Me Before You

Me Before You
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

F you Jojo Moyes. I love this book and hate this book at the same time. I had no idea what the subject matter was going to be about and have no idea why I event chose to read this book. Did I read about it somewhere else? Was someone in one of the book groups mention it? Why did I stumble upon it and why was it so good? Although warning it's a tearjerker.

This book is about death and dying and life and living. A subject I became very familiar with in college. It deals with a patients choice to end their suffering which is a subject I struggle with, but only because it has been ingrained in me since I was a child that suicide is wrong and selfish. But isn't it humane sometimes? Isn't it better than letting someone's soul die inside a body that no longer works for them?

I can't really write a review for this because there's no way to without giving away huge plot points. But I'd like to give it 4 3/4 stars because it was a great book, but I can't give it 5 stars because F you Jojo Moyes.

  2. Hi, Tyler.

    It is sometimes useful to put situations into perspective. Today I found very inspiring Ms. Corcoran's story who, despite losing both legs at the Boston bombing, she exclaims "the sky’s the limit. Nothing was taken from me that I can’t get back. I can even be better than I was before.”
