When I first saw the movie trailer of Me Before You, my attention got piqued because of Sam Claflin. I watched the trailer a few times and I found out that the movie is based on a novel by Jojo Moyes. Living in an era of online shopping, it didn’t take much time for me to buy and download the kindle version of the book. I read couple of mixed reviews on the book and was a bit doubtful about the impulsive buying decision. After all ‘spending INR 322.05’ on an “e”-book will fetch me quite a few raised eye brows.
But when I started to read the novel, all my doubts were washed away. Boy oh boy it was beautifully written. So fresh and spontaneous storytelling. The characters are realistic and their interactions are so natural, that sometime you feel like as if the dialogs are just forming and coming out of your own mind. You keep praying and hoping along with the characters; their hurt, pain and emotions becomes your own. And that’s where the writer is fantastically successful.
Those who ever loved anyone dearly in their life, they will surely be able to relate to the story. Yet it’s not a typical love story; it has its own essence. So please don’t read any reviews before hand and form a stereotype image in your mind. Happy reading!
I hope Sam Claflin will be able to do justice to Will Traynor. I’m not having a spec of doubt about the look part. I’m just concerned that the movie should be at par with the novel or else it might face the same fate as TMI.
Price: $ / £ I bought the kindle version of it from Amazon.com at INR 322.05 only.
