Me Before You opens in the U.S. on Friday and I couldn’t be more excited to go see the film about a novel I read weeks ago, and loved every word of it.
The novel which has left such an impression on me, in every sense of the word, from the author’s writing style, which I admire, to the story, to the characters, and how well she managed to weave together all of it to create the perfect a story – I cannot seem to stop thinking about.
So, until Friday, I have been obsessively reading the reviews, the actors interviews, and all that’s been said on social media about the story turned film. (I suppose keeping the momentum).
What is it about love stories where one person is terminally ill? Is it the unconditional love expressed in between the pages or on screen? The fact, there is an expiration date to their forever, breaking our hearts? Or is it simply a reminder of how wonderful and caring people can be?
Anyway, let me know if you’ve seen the film (since it was already released outside of the US) or if you’ve read the book, and what did you think either way?
