“Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.
What Lou doesn’t know is she’s about to lose her job or that knowing what’s coming is what keeps her sane.
Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he’s going to put a stop to that.
What Will doesn’t know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they’re going to change the other for all time.”
The first thing you should know is that writing this review with tears running down my face. I should’ve probably wait a little before typing this, but i just needed to talk about this book. I love it. I was expecting a cheesy romance, but what i got was an explosions of feels. Yes, obviously, the romance is important, but i felt like this book was so much more than just a love story. This book made me think. I kept wondering what i would do if i was in Will’s situation? what if i was in Lou’s place? or even Will’s parents? I kept think about life it self and when is it okay to say, yup, i had enough. It’s also a book that focus alot on Life itself and how to really make the best of it. I really like seeing Will trying to push Lou into trying new things while Lou was trying to help Will find life fun again. Together, they simply tried to make the best of what they had. I love Lou’d voice, she was an extraordinary character. She was really interesting to follow around. She had such a great energy. Will was complex and sad, and also so smart, and funny. His sarcastic voice was great and i love seeing him interact with Lou. Familly is also an other important part of this story. You have two very different kind of Familly and it was great seeing how the react to their situation, sometimes together, sometimes all alone. The writing was great, it was my first book by Jojo Moyes and i don’t think it will be my last. The ending broke me, Will’s letter was perfect and painfull. Gosh, i’m still crying!
I loveeeeeeeee this book so much more than i expected, it was emotional, but also sweet and fun. i’m so excited for the movie, i’m going to be such a mess.
