We read every chapter, summarize and analyze it for your convenience. This is an Instaread Summary of 'Me Before You' by JoJo Moyes. Below is a preview of the earlier sections of the summary: Chapter 1 Louisa ‘Lou’ Clark, a member of a working class family in a small English village, has just lost her job. Although both Lou’s father, Bernard, and her sister, Treena, work, neither makes enough money to help the family make ends meet without Lou’s income. For this reason, it is decided that Lou should apply for a new job at the Job Centre as soon as possible. The next day Lou goes to the gym to see her boyfriend, Patrick. He sees Lou’s lost job as an opportunity for her to improve herself and find something better. The counselor at the Job Centre suggests Lou apply as a care assistant for a man in a wheelchair. She is not interested in this job, but she is running out of options. She agrees to go for the interview. Chapter 2 Lou usually wears odd, eccentric clothes. For the job interview, Josie, her mother, insists she wear a business suit. Lou goes to Granta House, an elegant and expensive home next to the local tourist attraction, Stortfold Castle. She is interviewed by Camilla Traynor. Camilla is Will Traynor’s mother. Will became a quadriplegic after being hit by a motorcycle. He already has a nurse named Nathan to take care of his personal and medical needs. Camilla wants to hire someone to be a companion for Will and to stay with him during the day when no one else can be there. Lou thinks the interview goes badly. Therefore, she is surprised when Camilla offers her the job with a six-month contract and generous pay. Chapter 3 Lou reports for work at Granta House the following morning. Camilla shows her around the annexe, a space that was once stables but was turned into guest quarters. This is where Will lives now that he is confined to a wheelchair. Camilla explains her duties to Lou. She makes it clear that Lou is not to leave Will alone and unattended for more than 15 minutes at any one time. Camilla introduces Lou to Will and Nathan, Will’s nurse. Nathan explains Will’s medications to Lou and tells her she is there to cheer Will. Nathan leaves, and Lou and Will are left to get to know each other. It does not go well. Will is sullen, quiet, and talks very little. She keeps herself busy with cleaning and household chores to fill in the time. Lou is unhappy about the first day at her new job. She talks to her sister Treena about it. Treena asks her to stick with the job because she has decided to quit her job and go back to college. She has received a grant to help pay her tuition, but will have to quit her job. Lou feels this puts more pressure on her to earn an income....

    I loved this book. I slept with it for three days after I'd finished, because I didn't want to leave Lou and Will. I howled to let it go; to let them go. It's an easy and unsentimental read, with a clarity of purpose that drives the narrative to an unexpected and heart-stopping end. One of my all time favourites.

    I really flew through this book - great plot (successful, rich, adventurous, spunky executive ends up a paraplegic after an accident and develops unexpected friendship with small town, small dream girl from poor family), interesting and likeable characters and quite amusing writing - I can imagine it would make for a great film. It all sounds a bit cliched but is better than that. Worth a read.

    Highly Recommend!I am highly impressed. I normally am not a fan of summaries, but INSTAREAD outdid themselves with this summary. Not only did they give a very detailed summary of the story, but they also go through chapter to chapter, one by one, and gives an in depth summary of each chapter. They take it a step farther and also highlight the important events of each chapter. Then to give it a final touch, they also list out all of the characters and tell the reader exactly who they are and what their relationships are to each other. As soon as I read this 30-Minute summary, I wanted to buy the book. The summary gave me just enough information to intrigue me into wanting more. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND not only reading this summary, but finding more of INSTAREAD summaries. I will be looking for them to determine which books I want to read next.

    I enjoyed this book but would have preferred if it hadn't been so emotionally charged. My next read, to get me through this lingering winter, will be more lighthearted. The story line was touching in that Clark, small time cute young lady was transformed due to the influence of Will, a paraplegic. The author changes up the narration from one character to another which I found interesting and insightful. I was really annoyed by the fact that when I got to the last chapter my kindle informed me that I had an hour to go before finishing. Soooo I figured there was more to the story ,however That hour was a lead- in to another of Jo Jo's books. I didn't like that.

    This is the first book in a while that has had me reading so voraciously. I was completely consumed by the unfolding relationship between Clark & Will. Whilst a little predictable, the edginess of the characters kept it thoroughly entertaining. By the end I was hooked on them both and cried my guts out reading the last twenty or so pages.

    This was a very light read but it drew me in as the characters thoughts were shared. I could have been rated it higher if there would have been more depth to the development of the story. Nice read between heavier books.
