Me Before You
So yesterday I came back from my Carnival trip which didn’t go so well, depressed a bit about how things had gone (beach with no sun, raining, cold, cloudy, lost in a town I didn’t knew, and so more), I opened facebook and there it was Me Before You movie trailer, I have never heard about either the movie nor the book, but I decided to watch the trailer bc I am a big fan of Sam Claflin and Emilia Clarke.
Fifteen minutes after watching the trailer at 9:00 pm I had already downloaded the book. This was something big for me bc I had decided not no read any book till I had ended up this semester (four weeks more and it will be over) but the trailer seemed so good to me I couldn’t resist.
About ten minutes ago I finished reading it and I had never been more emotional after reading a book, I was crying still am, thinking about all the wise things that a single book can teach you about life, specially in the kind of moments I am living, when I have to decide what should I do for the next few years, how to manage my future, define who I am and what I want from life, and that an “I don’t really know” its not an answer for that question.
There had been a very long time since I read a book that was so good as this one, Me Before You leaves you a sweet & sour flavour, I want to express my congratulations to Jojo Moyes, the author who has shown outstanding skills to make yourselve feel all the emotions, all the desperation and all the love, but specially all the interrogants about life, dragging you to a world where you have to imagine someone you love being tetraplegic, all the limitations they have, but also all the hope of a better life, and why not, to defy all the Christian/Catholic rules about killing your own self or someone else just to stop the infinite pain.
PLEASE READ ME BEFORE YOU, it’s worth it! so worth it that I stoped myselfe of doing homework for an entire day just so I could end it up. Can’t wait to watch the movie, I will go alone (as I used to go to the movies), buy nachos and a big pot of popcorn, sit and cry all the rivers I want while watching Sam hot as hell Claflin fall in love with Emilia Clarke, there couldn’t be better actors to play the roles of Will and Lou.
