One of the things that I love about her writing is that you never quite know what to expect, her books are all so very different, she certainly doesn't have a set formula to write to.
I was delighted to receive an advance copy of her latest novel, Me Before You which will be published by Michael Joseph in January 2012.
Me Before You is a love story, but a painful story. We meet Lou, an ordinary 26 year old, from an ordinary town who has just lost her job. We meet Will - handsome, rich, successful, popular and confined to a wheelchair. Will is frustrated and angry with life and has decided that he is not prepared to live like this, his wish is to go to Dignitas in Switzerland to end his life. Lou is determined that she will make him see that his life can be worth living and plans a series of adventures for him.
Falling in love can be the most beautiful thing in the world, but it can also be the most painful. This story tells of the complexities of love, the complications of making huge decisions and also that it's wrong to judge people's decisions without taking into account those complications.
For me, this is Jojo Moyes' best novel to date. It's genuinely moving and captivated me from beginning to end.
