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!
Welcome back to one of the most original and memorable heroines in modern fiction, Louisa Clarke! This time her wacky and endearing family along with her boyfriend Sam return, albeit often from afar. In STILL ME Louisa finds herself “across the pond” making a new life in the Big Apple. In this third installment of the series, Lou encounters new characters and confronts new complications. Author Jojo Moyes’ seemingly effortless writing drew me in once again - a perfect summer beach read! I especially enjoyed seeing iconic NYC sites through Lou’s eyes. Will this be the last we see of Louisa Clark? Maybe,… but with the success of this trilogy, I doubt it!
Just like 'Me Before You and 'After You' I loved this book. I really have enjoyed the whole series/trilogy, even more so "Still Me' as it is mostly set in New York. Louisa's character is so likeable. Really hope they make a movie for the second and third book....Can't wait!
I thouroughly enjoyed book three of Jojo Moyes’ You Before Me trilogy. The author chose an interesting setting (New York) to help Louisa Clark find her true self as she teeters between the world of the super rich and the friends she makes who are from th same type of world she came from back in England. Louisa faces great difficulties after she is accused of theft by the Gopnicks and fired on the spot, but she manages to reinvent herself before discovering how she truly feels about Josh and Sam. A quick read.
Still Me is enjoyable, hugely due to the fact that the female protagonist does not cave in the end, but actually does what she wants to do! Her personal growth is developed nicely, but I found the ending to be flat.
Unfortunately, this was a predictable end to the trilogy. It's very confusing, as Louisa started out as a character with so much potential and pizzaz, and by the end of the series, her life had become one of those "it's who you know, not what you know" and "right place, right time" tropes that you see in most works of fiction. Honestly, I finished reading this one just to help me meet my reading goal for the year. Very disappointing.
Still Me is the third installment of Jojo Moyes' Me Before You series. It chronicles Louisa's life after Will's tragic suicide in Switzerland and her move to the United States. Louisa's struggles to survive in New York City are captured with Moyes' signature humor and heartwarming nature that pervaded her previous work. If you enjoyed the other books in the series, I see no reason why you would not enjoy this one as well. Highly recommended.
