She knows how many miles lie between her new home in New York and her new boyfriend, Sam, in London.

Perfect

Wow! As soon as I started reading this book I got goosebumps because it was just so thrilling to be back in Louisa Clark's world once again. This book starts in such a fun way with Lou at border control, about to enter the USA, everything she is doing and feeling is so relatable and instantly you remember why you love her as a character so much. There are so many classic Louisa moments in this book, from genuine moments of honestly an heart to moments of insecurity and some really clumsy and or drunken mishaps. She is a great character and I am so pleased that Jojo Moyes has decided to bring her back for a third time, long live Louisa Clark.

Of course there are some new characters to meet in this book as well and most of them just happen to be New Yorkers, which is great fun to read about as well. But what Jojo Moyes has done is recognise that there are so many people from so many other countries who live in this city and the characters really reflect this, I think she made a really good choice here! Fear not, we get to catch up with Louisa's lovely family as well, when we got to hear from them through phone calls and visits, it really did feel like I was speaking to home as well, these characters have been so brilliantly written to feel like family to the reader as much as to Louisa.

Then there is the fact that the majority of this book is set in Manhattan. I loved seeing the city through Louisa's eyes and visiting places with her that I have visited myself. It has that little bit of "Devil Wears Prada' about it because obviously Louisa is new to the city but must find her way around and get into the rhythm of New York so that she can get on with her new job, and there are some very funny moments that come out of this. One of my favourite things is that she frequently stumbles across the difference between purse and handbag, something that I can really relate to and something I'm glad was included in this book.

In terms of the plot, I would say that this, the third in the series is a little more upbeat than the previous two novels and the plot is therefore a little slower in pace. It is very much all about Louisa's new start and I loved the fact that Jojo Moyes keeps it simple and really does focus in on that. She doesn't go too far into the ins and outs of the consequences of visas and plane fares and that makes for a real escapist read. The plot certainly did keep me turning the pages though as I listened to this audiobook in one day, only stopping it once when I had to call in at that library!

All in all this book was just fantastic. I really don't even think you would need to have read the other two books in the series in order to enjoy this book because it is definitely a story in itself about a wonderfully optimistic English woman making a life for herself in a fabulous new city and everything that comes with it. I feel satisfied and comforted having finished the book. I feel like I have lived through the experience with Louisa and I am ready to go right back to the beginning and start it all again!

Romantic

As usual jojo moyes didn’t disappoint me. Louisa’s character is full of ups & down. But that made her stronger person. It’s family orientated with a bit of twist.
Thoroughly enjoyed it. I hope more story of Luisa in the future. Well done

Brilliant

After reading the 1st two books I didn’t think a 3rd would be as good , but..........OMG it was brilliant and soooo hoping for the 4th. Waiting in anticipation from this amazing author and narrator who was also just as amazing. A truly must read.

I missed book 2 but still loved this story

I managed to skip over book 2 📚 and was worried that I would be missing out key details. This is not the case at all. You could read this book without having read the previous stories ( although book 1 is 👍, so you probably should read it anyway!)
It a book that leaves you feeling happy.

Like visiting an old friend

If you have read 'Me Before You' and 'After You', then without a doubt, you will enjoy this book. I personally think this book is better than 'After You', although I wouldn't enjoy it if I hadn't of read the latter. This book takes you on Louisa Clarke's journey through New York, she's the same (somewhat annoying) clumbsey, overly talkative and wild dressing, bad decision making person, but she is still lovely and reading this book was like catching up with an old friend.

The book spoke in detail about New York and although at times the story see's Louisa fall on testing times, it does make you wish you were there on a similar adventure.

Anna Acton, gives each character their own accent and Louise still has air of the character Emilia Clark portrayed. I would recommend this book, for a cosy night in, a beach read or just a good read to take you to the Big Apple.

Still Me - in New York

Oh I loved this story and do hope that there will be a sequel telling how Louisa’s and Sam’s life together turned out! It was funny and made me smile but also sad. The narrator was excellent- loved all the different accents. It was wonderful!,

Could not put the book down!

What can I say... WOW!!! What an amazing recording! This was the first time I purchased Jojo's audio book. I read others. But this - I am amazed! I could not put it down and it went through it in a day and a half. Anna Acton did a great job reading and doing all accents. It added so much to the overall impressions of the book. Am now thinking which of Jojo's books to listen to next!

You know what you're going to get, but still great

Not 'Me Before You', better than the sequel, and all three better than most. Yes, I'm a bloke and yes, it's a literary romcom but love the characters, New York adds some great new ones and you do want to find out what happens to lovely Louisa. Great performance and accents, too.

Beautful Emotional Story

I should have known that I was going to ugly cry while listening to Still Me since this makes the 6th Jojo Moyes book that I’ve listened too, and I’ve never been able to read one of her books without being an emotional mess! Moyes is so wonderful at tugging on her reader’s heartstrings, and no character does it better than lovely, sweet Louisa Clark!

Lou is back for a 3rd time in Still Me, and I for one was thrilled to listen about a character who I had grown to love so much in the first two books. I was also glad to reconnect with past characters, like her family (her parents always make me laugh) and the Traynors, that I’ve grown to love too! I have thoroughly enjoyed the whole series.

Moyes writing, as usual, is superb and she brilliantly shows us the scenery of NYC, the parties, the crowded streets, and more. She is an author who makes me laugh and cry, and I did so much of both with Still Me since Moyes always seems to get Lou in the wildest situations! Moyes has definitely become an auto-buy author for me. I just finished The Giver Of Stars which, was also a 5 star listen for me so I can’t wait to see what she writes next!

I love Lou, I truly do, and I hated saying goodbye to her, but I felt that Moyes gave her a happy ending, on her own terms which is all that I’ve ever wanted her to have. It was an utter joy to spend time with Lou one more time…Highly, highly recommended!

Anna Acton was wonderful in her delivery of the story

Loved the book!

I’m not really into fiction, but the way author has written about the character Louisa, It made made me completely involved into the story. Her new endeavours, her humble attitude and her adventures in NYC had really hooked me up to listening late in the night. Overall I loved it.

I enjoyed this much more than the 2nd book

This was a great dip back into Louisa Clark’s life. After You was the story of what happened to her immediately after losing Will and at the end she realised that she hadn’t gone through with what she promised him.

This story takes Lou on a life changing trip across the sea to New York city. With the help of her friend Nathan, she ends up working for a wealthy family which is a huge eye opener for her. A life of wealth and opulence can affect people in many different ways and Louisa sees both sides of the coin – so to speak.

She also struggles with the long distance between her and Sam the ambulance man. While she struggles to juggle everything going on in her life she meets a handsome American stranger called Josh. There is just something about him that draws her attention and it’s nice to have a friend she can count on.

Just when Louisa thought she had life figured out she comes to the startling revelation that she has never felt so alone. However, a surprising, unlikely friendship leads her in a new direction. Will this British girl find what she has been looking for in New York city or does her heart remain in England.

I enjoyed this much more than the second book, I saw more of the Louisa I came to know and love in Me Before You. Wonderful read.

pleasant to listen to

I would argue if it is a Polish accent which Agnes speaks. It is a bit annoying for me (I am Polish). However, the whole story is easy and pleasant to listen to :)
