An author couldn’t ask for much better than this. Liesl Schillinger’s NYT BR review of Jojo Moyes’ Me Before You, (Penguin/Pamela Dorman Books, Thorndike Large Print), begins “When I finished this novel, I didn’t want to review it; I wanted to reread it.”
People magazine designates it their first “People Pick” of the year, calling this story of a quadriplegic’s relationship with his caregiver, “funny, surprising and heartbreaking, populated with characters who are affecting and amusing in equal measure. Written in a deceptively breezy style… [it] captures the complexity of love.”
This adds to an equally strong review in USA Today and endorsements from independent booksellers, who made it an Indie Next pick and librarians on GalleyChat.
Moyes, a best seller in the UK and winner of two of the UK’s Romantic Novel of the Year Awards (for Last Letter from Your Lover in 2011 and Foreign Fruit, in 2004) appears poised for her breakout here.
