Climax Continued...
When Louisa overheard this conversation, she was devastated. Her opinion of Will changed and she no longer wanted to help him live his everyday life. This was the turning point of the book because Louisa was emotionally not the same afterwards. This was when the real purpose of the book started to come about.
Eventually, Louisa's main goal became to change Will's mind about his chosen death. In the end, no matter how much Louisa loved Will, and how much Will loved Louisa, it would never be enough for him to change his mind about wanting to end his life because of his condition. Moyes stated that "Ultimately, I wrote the ending that I felt was true to the characters." This chosen ending came to a shock to readers, although it was the resolution Moyes felt was appropriate.
