Happy world book day! To celebrate world book day I thought I’d do a book review.
I saw the movie release of this book in June of last year and I LOVED it! I’ve been wanting to read the book ever since and finally got round to it in February.
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.
I loved this book and all its quirky jokes and characters. Its storyline picks up on the highs and lows of life, and especially a life with an impairment. It gives a brighter outlook on life throigh Lou and is emotionla at times.
In the movie, Patrick was a smaller character so it was good to see his and Lou’s background and relationship more. I can’t wait to read Moyes’ second book Me After You later this year!
Have you read this book? And if so, what did you think of it? Alice x
