Author: Jojo Moyes
Rating: 4/5 broken hearts
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 DID NOT CRY! (…okay, maybe I did shed a tear or two) It was devastating, but also heart warming and precious. I adooore the two main protagonists; Lou & Will, they’re both so different and honestly they compliment each other so well throughout the novel – without one another, this book is nothing.
The relationship between these two characters was built up at the right pace – by the end of the book you can see how much both characters influenced each other. It’s quite beautiful, really. I also liked how family played a huge part in the novel. Lou’s family was crazy and whimsical just like her and I enjoyed reading about them. Such a heart wrenching book. I don’t cry very easily when it comes to reading books but this one, I gotta admit, made me crack a little *weeps* pick this book up now pleaaaaase!
