Jojo Moyes’ novel Me Before You was The Must Read when it was released in 2012. Me Before You tells the story of Louisa Clark, an aimless young woman who loses her gig at the local café and takes a job as a carer to Will Traynor, a young man who became permanently disabled due a road accident which saw his girlfriend leave him and his life changed forever. Sparks fly when Louisa and Will first meet, he’s posh, she’s not – but a tentative understanding builds. It’s a very good book and we may have forced it on all our pals for a solid year.
The movie rights were snatched up soon after publication, and the film is due to land in cinemas in coming weeks. Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke and The Hunger Games‘ Sam Clafin take the leads and the trailer only just debuted. What do you think?
