Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.

Me Before You ★★★☆☆

Me Before You: A Novel - Steven Crossley, Andrew Wincott, Susan Lyons, Anna Bentink, Lindsay Owen-Jones, Jojo Moyes, Alex Tregear

I wanted to give the clueless, self-absorbed "heroine" a slap upside the head throughout most of this book. How does she think that making decisions for someone is going to help a person whose chief issue is having lost all control over his own life?


Still, it was an entertaining read, and the audio performance by Susan Lyons and a cast of others is excellent. 3 Stars.
