Still Me: A Novel
This is the last book in the Me Before You trilogy, although it can be read as a standalone, as I read it. Louisa Clark makes the move from England to New York, where she becomes an assistant to a wealthy second wife of an important businessman. As she becomes accustomed to the New York elite, she tries to keep her long distance relationship alive with Sam, the gentle paramedic she left behind in England. Louisa learns that friendship with the ultra-rich isn’t necessarily as cut and dry as one might think. She finds herself even as she helps her employers find out what appointments they need to keep.
This beautifully written book is a page-turner! Although it’s 388 pages, it’s the type of book you don’t want to put down until you’ve found out how everything is resolved. The characters are quirky and interesting, and Louisa is an especially lovable protagonist. Even without reading the first two books, this was a joy to read. (Although I loved her character so much that I had to go right back and read the others just to see exactly what had happened to her before.) A lovely and satisfying conclusion to an extremely popular series.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
