Reviews I came accross this book in WHSmith in the paperback chart and the first thing I have to say about this book is I love the cover as it gave no indication as to what to expect from the storyline but yet the colours used on the cover instantly pulled me in. From the first chapter of this book I was HOOKED as Moyes has such a realistic and natural flow to her writing, which makes it a believable storyline that just keeps flowing along beautifuly. This is a true romance story through and through and what sets this book aside from other romance books is the unique storyline. The two main characters in this book are Lou and Will and I found that both of these characters are very likeable and they felt very life like that towards the end of the book they feel so familair they are like friends of ours. I loved the different emotions the storyline brought out in me, there were times when I laughed out loud and there were also times when I cried behind my sunglasses!! There really are some heartbreaking moments for both of our characters during this book. It was amazing how Moyes managed to take such a delicate subject matter which could have made for a very depressing read and yet still managed to bring some humour out in the book so that the book didnt feel too deep all the way through the book. In my opinion this is a sensationally moving read that has to be next on your to be read list and easily gets a full 5 stars from me!
I have to admit I didn't really pay much attention to the blurb about this book before I downloaded it for my Kindle to read on holiday. I'd read another book by Jojo Moyes (Love Letters) and quite enjoyed it, so thought this would be a good beach read. Wow .... It is an amazing book but quite a lot deeper than I expected. The story revolves around Lou, a small town girl who finds herself unemployed after the cafe where she works shuts down. In desperation she starts working as a career for Will, a quadriplegic guy. Though Will is decidedly frosty to her at the beginning, over time he thaws out a little and a beautiful friendship develops. However, the relationship is tinged with sadness, for Will has decided to take his own life at Dignitas, and Lou's employment is his parents' last chance to get him to change his mind. The characters in this book are incredibly strong and real and I found myself caught up in the relationship and willing things to turn out okay. All in all this is an amazing book, a love story on the surface but one that deals with some really serious issues and has you questioning your own beliefs and thinking about what you would do if you were in the shoes of Will or his parents. Highly recommended, and I'll be reading more by this author in the future.
I cried for half an hour after I read this book. It genuinely moved me, not in the usual way I cry when I’m reading and something sad happens, but in a deep, profound way I’m not sure I can really explain. The description given for this book really doesn’t do it justice. It’s not just about a man and a woman; it’s about possibility and finding your future and the right to choose to end your life, the right to die. Assisted suicide is a hugely contentious issue, personally I think that anyone could go and commit suicide and that isn’t illegal, yet it is if someone who is physically unable to do it has to get help. To me that doesn’t make
sense, we should all have the right to end our life with dignity. The author doesn’t force her point of view down your throat which I like; instead she presents a range of views through the eyes of the characters. The ending of this book could never fit with the typical boy meets girl kind of romance. The author could choose to end it in a generic way, which would have been a bit of a cop-out and not realistic, or she could end it painfully but in keeping with the realism of the book. Without giving anything away I will say that she handled everything sensitively and beautifully, making me laugh as well as cry. The balance between humour and the seriousness of the subject matter was perfect. This book has really given me so much to think about, I’m not sure I could read it twice, I don’t want to diminish the beauty of reading it this once but I know that I will never forget it.
