We’ve chosen Me Before You by Jojo Moyes because it has a 5-star rating from nearly 10,000 reviews on Amazon.
And, as it’s Valentine’s Day this month, what better than this powerful love story. Here are some of the reviews:
Poignant . . . heartfelt . . . Me Before You, at it’s heart, is about two people who properly listen to each other; it is something good (The Independent on Sunday)
When I finished this novel, I didn’t want to review it: I wanted to reread it . . . An affair to remember (The New York Times Book Review)
At last, a new Moyes novel – and it’s a triumph. Her story of love blossoming in the most unlikely of ways packs such an emotional punch, you’ll need a box of tissues (Elle)
A compelling novel of life and death decisions and unlikely affections. It’s magical and heartbreaking, but doesn’t shy away from difficult emotional realities. Waterproof mascara essential (Marie Claire)
A disarmingly moving love story . . . a lovely novel, both nontraditional and enthralling (Publishers Weekly)
Let’s see what we think!
