Me Before You #TeaserTuesday

This one is my latest favourite romance.  I read the book first and immediately watched the movie.  I loved them both.  Of course, the book was better. This is my favourite scene and it is just apt for this Valentine’s day.

In this story,  the hero, Will Traynor is wheelchair bound.  Lou Clarke is his “babysitter” as he calls her.  She initiates and manipulates to take Will out to watch an opera.   And this happens when they get back home and Lou is about to open the car door to take Will inside.

“Just hold on. Just for a minute. ..
I just…I don’t want to go in just yet. I just want to sit and not have to think about…I just…want to be a man who has been to a concert with a girl in a red dress. Just for a few minutes more…”

Absolutely, romantic.

  1. I recently read her new book, and one of the main reasons why I was interested in it in the first place is because you’ve spoken to highly about this one. Unfortunately, I already know the ending of Me Before You, so didn’t pick it up, but her writing was really good. So romantic, I had hearts in the air around me throughout 😛

    1. See. I told you. It is difficult to excite a reader when the story is the same old love story. Despite all this, I liked that Jojo Moyes captured my interest. Thankfully, I also liked that she did not take a moralistic view or preached anything. It is a good love story, plain and simple.

  2. I enjoyed the second book much more but I’m a happy ending kind of a gal. The first one was just too sad. Saw the movie, too, and it was also very sad. Both were well written though. I like JoJo Moyes effortless blend of humour and her characters are so realistic. You feel like you really know them.

    1. Thanks Cathy. I have not read the second book. I will get around to it. I do not like sad endings too. But this one I loved for the realistic characters and simple humour.

  3. I quite enjoyed both the book and the movie. The second part of it, I had quite high expectations – so it did fall a little flat on its face, according to me. But overall, this is one of the better ones from the romance genre in a long long time.

    1. Thanks Sid. The second half and the last few pages are a bit of a drag. But it is still an enjoyable book. And Sam Clafin is too good.

    1. It is a beautiful scene. The movie brings this scene to life in the most beautiful manner. Hope you enjoy reading / watching this one.

  4. This book made me cry so so much! I haven’t seen the movie, and I don’t think I want to. I like the way Will and Lou look and speak and act and live in my imagination.

    1. Oh.. the book made me cry too. The movie is limited as are all adaptations. But, the protagonists are very good. I felt Nathan in the movie was very boring though.

    1. Its cute, isn’t it? I could just imagine my love saying something like this, except that he will say, ‘I love you in your pyjamas with hair sticking in all directions.’

  5. I absolutely loved this book, you know that. I just finished re-reading it – the entire book – other than the horse racing day. I could’t put myself through that again. That quote is such a poignant one. I cannot get Sam Claflin’s face out of my mind as he sits in the car. I loved the film too.

    1. Sam Clafin is my latest crush. He brought all those “cheesy” dialogues to life and they never sounded cheesy. Simply superb.
