Goodreads: 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.
Ope’s Opinion: I just finished this book! Yes, I cried. It was very intense. I want to see the movie.
Some people are saying this is just a tear jerker book, but it is so much more then that. It makes you think about the quality of life and do you have the right to choose to end a life.
I think this would make a good book club book. The characters all have flaws worth discussing. Their decisions could be up for debate also.
More Jojo Moyes books are in my future.
Rating: 5 – This book is so good it will be passed on and on and on…..
