Me Before You

Me Before You - Jojo Moyes Well, I'm truly conflicted on this one. While it was a good read, and I enjoyed the characters, and ok, I love Will a little bit, I was left feeling a bit off at the wrap up of it all.

The scenes that wrapped the book were well written, but as I got closer, I realized that they weren't what I wanted to see. While I certainly empathize with Will's feelings and chronic pain, I am left feeling a little less generous that he gets to "decide" (I acknowledge life of pain) that she will live her life without him and as that he's not enough for her, in his mind. Isn't part of the deal with love that you ultimately make each other better people? But that's life I guess, people makes these uneven decisions all the time.

Given my conflicted feelings but ultimately well written pieces-although I'm docking for change in POV, this should've been cleaner and was possible without that--I am rating it a 3 because it's a worthwhile read but with significant flaws at least for me.
