Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You'll Fall in Love I cried. It's a interesting story, that starts off vaguely like Beauty and the Beast to me. Young girl forced to work in a castle to help out a beastly (personality, not in looks) young man. It developed beyond that, and gravitated towards Lou's quirkiness and her own inner demons. This story took me by surprise, I thought I had the story pegged. You will thoroughly enjoy this book, but be prepared for some tears!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not your average chick-lit This is the first book I read by Jojo Moyes, but it won't be last! It was beautiful, and brought me to tears (which NEVER happens). We chose it for our book club because it's an easy read, but offers much to debate/discuss. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I don't know what it is about this book, but it's so good! Seems long but one of the easiest and best reads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard to put down I read this book as part of a book club with friends and it has become one of our favorites. I quickly became attached to the characters and found that I really cared about what happened to them. I was thoroughly engaged in the story and found it difficult to put the book down. It is in essence a love story but not a traditional one by any means, which I enjoyed. It also opened my eyes to the world of those who have disabilities. I highly recommend this book, especially for a book club because there is no shortage of topics to discuss and debate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would definitely recommend. This is one of the best books I've ever read. I couldn't put it down and was sad when it was over. You will experience every emotion reading this book, well written and had me interested from the very start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely a keeper I have never before got close to the end of a book and began at the beginning again. I just didn't want it to end! Very thought provoking. Loved the characters. Definitely something that I will read again. I have purchased three copies to date because I can't give mine away just in case I don't get it back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have a box of tissues handy! This was my first Jojo Moyes book and I was well aware of her reputation for writing weepers. All the quotes on the back of the book seemed to confirm that I was expected to cry over this story. I enjoyed the characters and thought the plot was quite interesting and timely what with similar stories in the news lately. I kept reading and wondering if maybe the emotional impact was exaggerated. There were points that I felt sad for the characters but no tears had fallen. Then I got to the last fifty pages. Oh...my...god. I went through half a box of tissues. Okay everyone, you were right. This book is most definitely a weeper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Read it I just finished this book (at 2 am)! It was a wonderful read. Such intricate character development and a thought-provoking story line. But it, you'll be glad you did.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good read. Good story, but somewhat predictable plot and resolution. Critics repeatedly mentioned it brought strong emotions throughout the story. I did not find it that much emotion-stirring. However, it does bring forth important issues such as end-of-life care and assisted-suicide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heartfelt! A friend recommended this book to me and I have never been so touched emotionally from a book before. Reading it has forever touched my heart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very reflective of the story line. First read by Jojo Moyes and I must say , wow! Beautiful, touching story that I have already suggested to everyone I know. A great buy for sure.
