Louisa has always been a survivor. She knows how to tear her way through problems. As always a joyous ending.
Obviously, if I am to compare, no book in this trilogy could even get smallest bit close to how good “Me Before You” was. However, on its own, it was a really good book and much better than the second one!
I picked this book up without realising it was the third in a trilogy! Whoops. But still enjoyed and gathered enough from the plot to understand the themes in the previous books. Good easy to read summer novel.
In some trilogies, the first is good, the second is better, and the third is a disappointment (Star Wars, Indiana Jones, etc.). Some trilogies get it right the first time and gradually get worse (I'm looking at you Jurassic Park). And then you have some trilogies that peak high, dip low, then course correct somewhere inbetween at the end. That is where "Still Me" falls. I think Louisa Clark made the wrong choices, and I could not stay invested, despite the strong start.
I will preface this by saying I really loved the first book and enjoyed the second the same and was really excited to read this however I just fpcould not get into it and it seemed lik a cash grab by the author. I may read the first two again and give this one another shot but for now I will add it to my DNF list and suggest you pass this one up
The book hooked me pretty quickly and I looked forward to reading it every day. This author definitely has a formula for her stories, but I thoroughly enjoy it. It helps me unwind and forget about the world for a little while.
The first book intrigued me but then I wanted to throw it across the room. The second book had me hooked to the point that I read it in four days. But this.... I have tried to read this three times and have yet to get to the fourth chapter. That should speak volumes as to why I don't think this book was necessary.
LOVE this book! Loved crying while I read this book!!! ( and ALL the good things everyone else wrote!!) VERY worthwhile reading!!!
I loved this book. A story of family, love and a quest to find who you really are. I enjoy the way Jojo Moyes writes. I would highly recommend her books.
The love I have for not just this book but the whole series.
This book tipped me over the edge with love. I talked about this one so much so that my partner purchased me the hardback version of it (and the rest of the series) because I wouldn't stop recommending it to people or bringing it up in discussions. By the third you feel like your Lou's friend. And you're sitting on the edge trying to see what she's going to decide to choose to do next. There were parts I found unnecessary, as though JoJo was running out of time and trying to add conflict (like Josh's storyline) but overall. I can't recommend this book enough. And we finally see Wills perspective of life (before the accident though). Amazing.
Also people who didn't bother reading the story didn't find that she became independent and what a wonderful thing that was.
I don't see the point to this book (yeah, $$$). Actually, I never understood why Lou went to New York in the first place -- she had a wonderful, loving guy in England, she just needed to find something worthwhile to do. I read the beginning of this one & then skipped to the end to find out what happened to her. The middle is a waste of time, borrrring, more of the same, yadda yadda, yadda.
The third in the trilogy about Lou, a personal carer, who suffered a devasting loss in the first book and spends the next two books putting her life in order. I absolutely absolutely loved the first book in the trilogy (Me Before You) and knew there was no way a sequel could ever live up to the first.... however, given that, I did quite like this book... I love the main character and I felt in this book, she was more herself than in the 2nd in the trilogy (After You). I enjoyed this more than the 2nd and, in fact, feel that Moyes could have combined the 2nd and 3rd into one book. But that said, this is certainly worth reading in my opinion.
Better than 'After You' but falls way short of 'Me Before You'. To be fair, I think it is hard for Moyes to compete with what she accomplished in the first book of the series.
Much better than the 2nd book "After You"
Lou is back to her old self again and its fun to read about her new adventures in New York.
I don't know if any of JoJo Moyes' books will ever compete with Me Before You, but having read the previous two in the series, this was a solid finale. Where After You was a bit sad and conflicting, this brings the series back around to a satisfying conclusion. The writing itself is wonderful, as is the characterization. The main character is amazingly realistic, and the emotions are strong. I cried more than once.
Still me won the 10th Annual Goodreads Choice Awards (2018, Fiction category), the only major book awards decided by readers.
I really, really enjoyed reading this. I love Louisa's character, and while she struggled through some hard times in the second book, After You, she was back in full force in this one, bumblebee tights and all. I felt pulled into her world, and rooted for her success. While there was definitely some conflict, more of the book was a celebration, and it was just what I needed right now. If you loved Me Before You despite the ending, and found After You a bit of a challenge, give this one a shot. Louisa is back, and you'll want to be her best friend. You need this closure. :)
Jo Jo is back. I loved this book. Please make another. I am the type of person who wants the book or movie to end the story. What happened to Dean Martin the dog, Mrs. De Wit? Sam and Lou what’s with them?
There is a fourth book here.
I really enjoyed this book, not as much as the first but definitely better than After You which I felt dragged a bit. I read it on a two day road trip and finished it while my partner drove. I love Jojo Moyes writing, especially as Louisa Clark. I went to see her speak at an author event sponsored by Douglas County Libraries and Tattered Cover. She is a great speaker who reminded me a bit of Louisa. She understands her character very well, and you can tell she likes her, which makes the reader like her as well. I would definitely recommend this book if you liked Me Before You.
I loved this book better than the second one (After You) and less than the 1st (Me Before You).
The book tells of Lou's life in NY, after accepting the job that Nathan helped her get. As with the previous 2, I was hooked to the story, as soon as I began reading.
Louisa Clark is a great character and from the first chapter I was happy to be hanging out with her again. I smiled a lot and even laughed out loud!
