I loved Me Before You and After You, I thought it was a perfect duo. I did not feel the need of a third book, however, I still had to read it. I would not refuse more Lou Clark.
Everybody loved the story of Will and Lou in Me Before You. It was truly something else that touched many hearts even through the movie.
Afterwards, I was so happy for Lou for finding someone else and being able to go on with her life in After You. And I hoped that would be the ending, we all know Lou is fine and alive and everybody can go on with their lives too.
When I saw the news of Still Me the first reaction was excitement. I was super excited for another book until I gave it another thought and talked to myself in my mind “ok why would we need MORE? I mean… sometimes LESS is MORE and this is a perfect example. What could happen now?! Is Will raising up from the dead?” and so on and so on I thought of some scenarios.
I was pretty surprised that Lou took New York (yes, the Kardashians inspired me with this line) because I couldn’t ever imagine her there. If there’s a thing I feel that’s pretty exaggerated about her is her awkwardness, especially at the beginning when she is in the airport and she is being asked questions upon entering US. That scene destroyed me.
What I also hate are clichés. Agnes is too clichéic. The idea of NY is also clichéic.
I also have mixed feeling about Sam. I was silently hoping they would break up. I felt like she would be better alone. And I was pretty intrigued about Josh until we actually got to meet him, another cliché.
If there’s a positive thing to say about Lou is that I love the positivity her character transmits. Even when people around her hated on her and were mean to her she managed to be such a sweet and kind lady, I was really impressed.
Overall, the story of the book is not super special but it’s a pretty nice cozy read.
I would recommend it if you’ve read the other 2 books and you want a little closure or you really wanna finish the series.
