Voice Spotlight: Me Before You

Me Before You, Jojo Moyes

First of all, I adore this book on so many levels. You should read it. It will make you feel things.

One particular thing I liked, though, was the voice. This was interesting to me, because in a lot of ways Lou Clark isn’t that interesting as a character. She’s been a waitress her whole working life, she doesn’t have a lot of ambition, and her relationship with her long-time boyfriend is lackluster at best. Her life is fairly unremarkable. And yet Moyes is still able to give her a voice that is engaging.
