Book Reviews With Oumissa #15: Me Before You – Jojo Moyes

Me Before You has always been one of my top romance books (even though I’m not a fan of romantic novels)

The story of Louisa Clark and Will Traynor is beautiful but yet devastating and heartbreaking
The book showed love and its beautiful nature and also the reality of life

It also handled the challenges of being quadriplegic and the quality of one’s life which challenges the reader to think beyond what they know

Quadriplegia, which some people refer to as tetraplegia, is paralysis that results in the loss of movement and sensation in all four limbs. It can also affect the internal organs in the trunk

Damage to the brain or spinal cord can cause quadriplegia.

The spinal cord is a long, tube-like structure. It consists of bundles of nerve fibers that relay signals between the brain and the rest of the body.
The bones of the spine, the vertebrae protect the spinal cord from physical injury. However, a blow or a fall can break or dislocate a vertebra, damaging a segment of the spinal cord.

Will was quadriplegic and couldn’t imagine living his whole like in a wheelchair compared to how his life was before his accident

As much as Lou tried and loved him, it wasn’t enough

I love how the book had a deeper meaning than the usual romance books, it shows the length one can go to make someone they love happy even though it means sacrificing theirs
